Could Ryan Gosling get any cooler? In addition to his good looks and impressive acting skills, "The Notebook" actor is a real-life good Samaritan: he was spotted breaking up a fight between two men at an intersection in New York City.
The confrontation, according to bystanders, started because the one man stole the other man's painting. In the video, you can see the two men locked and about to hit the ground when Gosling calmly steps up and talks one guy into letting the other man go.
Lucky for us, a nosy bystander was ready with her cell phone camera:
While the woman behind the video has admitted that it happened in June, the video went viral online yesterday. With Gosling now coming to the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, fans may be tempted to stage some public scuffles in the hopes that the actor will swoop in to save the day.
