(Newser) – When Katy Perry helped deliver a baby—in a living room—she joined the ranks of celebrity superheroes. The Stir rounds up eight more. A sampling:

  • Ryan Gosling: When he saw a tourist who was about to be hit by a taxi in New York City, he grabbed her and pulled her to safety.
  • Mila Kunis: A man working at her house had a seizure and collapsed; she turned his head to the side and remained with him until an ambulance came.

  • Patrick Dempsey: He used a crowbar to pry open the door of a totaled car and pull the teen driver out.
  • Zoe Saldana: She saw a car crash, got out of her own car, and helped a woman out of the wreck, then stayed until paramedics arrived.
