It was just a normal day for Ryan Gosling. He was going about his business walking down 6th Avenue in Manhattan when all of a sudden, he spotted a woman obliviously about to walk into oncoming traffic. There was a reason for this too, the woman was British and was looking the wrong way! Gosling grabbed her by the arm and told her to watch out. The Internet melted, and memes were made of the incident. Come to find out, the woman was a journalist and wrote about her experience for Gawker. She tried to downplay the entire incident and said that she was sure another girl standing next to her would’ve helped too if Gosling wasn’t there. We guess some people aren’t that impressed with celebrity heroes.
