Laurie Penny– a reporter for The New Statesman, The Independent, The Guardian, Al-Jazeera, and The Nation–tweeted that she began to cross 6th Avenue while looking the other way (because Brits drive on the left side of the road) when Ryan ‘Hey Girl’ Gosling screamed, “Hey, watch out!” and grabbed her before she could be hit by an oncoming taxi.
Of course, this is not the first time Gosling has been a “Real Hero” in New York. Since moving to the city this past summer, he also broke up a fight on St. Mark’s Place between two men while wearing a tank top (watch video here).
She then goes on to say it’s a curious American trait that we freak out over celebrity happenings and appear “normal when public conversations are had about war on Iran and war on women’s bodies and when Rick Santorum is considered a serious presidential candidate.”
Lastly, Penny defends herself against the damsel in distress trope, saying that as “a feminist, a writer, and a gentlewoman of fortune,” she refuses to be cast in “any sort of boring supporting female role.”
She admits, however, to swooning the “teeniest tiniest bit” when seeing it was Gosling that came to her aid.
