Some of the following Hollywood celebs play the hero on screen, but their Good Samaritan skills have also been put to use in real life.
'Modern Family' star Julie Bowen has become a real-life hero after saving an ill woman in the Utah mountains. The mother had been hiking with her husband and kids and told them to go on ahead while she rested for a minute. She was feeling light-headed and actually passed out, hitting the ground face-first and smashing her glasses. Bowen found the woman disorientated on the ground with wounds on her face.
The woman recalls hearing a familiar voice telling her she was going to be okay, but it was a while before she realized who it was! Bowen helped her get medical attention and reunite with her family. It turned out that the woman had collapsed from dehydration, and ended up with five stitches and a fractured nose. That didn't stop her from getting a quick selfie with the famous actress who helped her!
