London: Ryan Gosling, who is surely on his way to superhero status, saved the life of one very grateful British journalist in New York City on Wednesday.

Laurie Penny, who writes for The Independent and The Guardian, forgot that cars drive on the right side of the road in the US, and very nearly walked into oncoming traffic.

The 31-year-old Canadian heartthrob pulled her back just seconds before she was hit by a taxi cab.

Penny couldn’t resist writing about her near-death experience and ensuing save on her Twitter page.

“I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling,” the Daily Mail quoted her as tweeting.

“Literally. That actually just happened...I was crossing 6th avenue in a new pink wig. Not looking the right way because I am from London.

“Ryan Gosling grabbed me away from a taxi.

“Identity of no-idea-if-actually-a-marnarchist-but-definitely-a-decent-sort Ryan Gosling confirmed by girl near me, who said you lucky b***h.

“He did not say ‘hey, girl.’ He said, ‘hey, watch out!” she added.
