(Newser) – Ryan Gosling, a hero? Only if heroes break up fights and save women from oncoming taxis. Oh, and rescue dogs that stray onto California highways. The 35-year-old actor was driving with Eva Mendes to celebrate her 42nd birthday in Palm Springs, Calif., this weekend when they nearly hit a dog—so the "human angel" got out of his car, grabbed the dog, and gave it back to its owner, Mashable reports. Photos in this tweet and this tweet seem to establish all this as fact. Gosling and Mendes spent much of their Palm Springs trip at Frank Sinatra's former estate, which cost them $10,400 for a four-night stay, Entertainment Tonight notes. Their one-year-old daughter Esmeralda also tagged along for the getaway. (On a more activist note, Gosling has shamed Costco over its eggs.)
