Mila Kunis And Dustin Hoffman Jump On The Celebrity Hero Train

Have celebrities always been heros, do you think? Consistently saving lives behind the scenes and getting no credit at all, until Ryan Gosling told a woman not to walk into a taxi and now suddenly it’s ALL newsworthy? Patrick Dempsey’s just like, “Well if Gosling is going to take credit for simply doing his duty as a celebrity and get so much press about it, as if it’s not part of our general training in the Hollywood Motel Conference Room Child Acting Classes we all took, there’s no reason for ME not to.” You think so? I can’t think of any other explanation, as today we have not one but TWO incredible stories of celebrities we all know and love rescuing Normals who we’ll never think about again! The first features the beautiful Mila Kunis. From TMZ:

Sources tell TMZ … a 50-year-old man — who works in Mila’s house — collapsed Saturday in her L.A. home. He suffered a violent seizure … choking, coughing up blood and vomiting. He had bitten through his tongue.

A person on scene tells us … Mila came running, had her friend call 911, then rushed to the man’s side.

We’re told the 28-year-old actress grabbed the man’s head … turned it to the side so he wouldn’t choke … while another person stuffed a wallet in his mouth so he wouldn’t swallow his tongue.

Law enforcement sources tell us … paramedics arrived on scene, rushed the man to the hospital, and he’s since made a full recovery. We’re told Mila volunteered to ride in the ambulance, but it wasn’t necessary.

WOWOWOW! Some of that story included information that I didn’t even want! TMI, Mila Kunis! Keep the dirty details of your heroism to yourself! The only part I’m not totally impressed by is the inclusion of how she offered to ride in the ambulance. The thing about celebrities is that they ALWAYS volunteer to ride in the ambulance, but it is never necessary. We know your game! And today’s second celebrity hero story comes from Rain Man star Dustin Hoffman. From The Sun:

Sam was running at 9am in London’s Hyde Park ten days ago when his heart gave out. Rain Man star Hoffman was taking a walk — and dashed to help.

The actor later told paramedics Sam had been frothing at the mouth and staggering. The jogger collapsed, smashing his face on the ground.

Hoffman called emergency services and tended Sam as he waited for paramedics. He then watched as medics Martin Macarthur and Luke Sullivan started his heart again with an electric shock from defibrillator pads.

The Hollywood star — who has a £10million home in nearby Kensington — only left once Sam had recovered.

WOW! Did you see how Dustin Hoffman totally got around the “celebrities always volunteer to ride in the ambulance but it is never necessary” rule by having his Normal Person not be able to enter into an ambulance before he was saved? Dustin Hoffman has clearly been doing this a LOT longer than these other guys. Thank you, Dustin Hoffman and Mila Kunis! I don’t know who else would’ve done what you did, just kidding, probably most people, but still you saved two lives and that’s pretty good and also you’re famous so good job with both of those! I can’t wait to see which of our favorite celeb pals reveal themselves as heros NEXT!
