It seems the world’s obsession with Ryan Gosling shows no sign of waning. Star of many an amusingly-themed tumblr, and currently winning our cute battle against an actual Gosling, journalist Laurie Penny just gave us another reason to love the only man to officially pull off a bomber jacket.

Yesterday afternoon she tweeted "I literally, LITERALLY just got saved from a car by Ryan Gosling. 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. He did not say 'hey, girl.' He said 'hey, watch out! Identity of ... Ryan Gosling confirmed by girl near me, who said 'you lucky bitch.'"

The tale of Gosling’s do-gooding antics was picked up by the New York Post, and since then the writer has been inundated with media requests, tweeting “EVERYBODY NEEDS TO CALM DOWN ABOUT RYAN GOSLING NOW… No seriously. My phone and email have been going crazy with media requests all night and all morning and it's getting silly now.”

Last August Gosling was similarly applauded for his heroics after breaking up a fight involving a street artist in New York.
