Ryan Gosling saves pink-wigged British woman from gnarly taxi accident
The woman in question, reports the New York Observer, is Laurie Penny -- who writes for "the Independent, Guardian, Al-Jazeera, The Nation and others" according to her Twitter feed, where she detailed the her life-saving brush with fame.
I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. Literally. That actually just happened.-- Laurie Penny (@PennyRed) April 3, 2012
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.-- Laurie Penny (@PennyRed) April 3, 2012
He did not say 'hey, girl.' He said 'hey, watch out!'-- Laurie Penny (@PennyRed) April 3, 2012
In August 2011, Gosling made headlines when he intervened in a street fight -- again, mainly to move the squabblers out of the street. On that occasion he was disguised as a gym rat -- wearing a striped muscle shirt and sweats. This time, according to Penny, Gosling was clothed in head-to-toe denim which may or may not be his superhero garb.
Confession: I did a double-double-take because, initially, I thought it was @jedweightman. Then realised Jed would not wear double denim.-- Laurie Penny (@PennyRed) April 3, 2012
