Los Angeles: Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling has saved yet another pedestrian from harm`s way by preventing a woman from walking into oncoming traffic in New York. According to the lucky woman, who happens to be a British journalist, the actor saved her from having an accident on Wednesday, reported a magazine.

"I literally, literally just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened," Laurie Penny wrote on Twitter.

Afterward Penny recounted the incident in an article titled, "Ryan Gosling Saved Me From a Speeding Car But There`s War In the Middle East So Everyone Calm Down" for a news and gossip blog. I didn`t remember to look the right way. An actor happened to be passing and stopped me from getting run over by a car. I said `thank you.` And that was that. The actor happened to be Ryan Gosling."

In August, Gosling, 31, made headlines when he singlehandedly broke up a fight between two men in NYC, who got into an altercation when one tried to steal a painting.
