Hollywood Heroes: Kate Winslet Helps Richard Branson's Mother in Fire, Ryan Gosling Breaks Up Street Fight in New York

The New Hollywood Heroes: Kate Winslet and Ryan Gosling

Stars such as Kate Winslet and Ryan Gosling are usually accustomed to performing hero acts on a film set. But they both recently proved that they’re also real-life heroes when they were faced with situations that required them to go out of their way to help others. Kate and her family were staying at Richard Branson’s Great House on Necker Island when a fire broke out yesterday morning after a lightning strike hit the mansion. Richard shared photos of the disaster on his blog and wrote, “My son Sam and nephew Jack rushed to the house and helped get everyone out and many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90 year mum out of the main house to safety - she was wondering when a Director was going to shout CUT!” Richard added that most of the house and his office have been destroyed, and that he lost “thousands of photographs and my note books which is very sad. But all family and friends are well - which in the end is all that really matters.”
