Ryan Gosling is turning into a modern day Superman in New York.

The Huffington Post is reporting that Ryan Gosling saved a British journalist from being hit by a New York City taxi Tuesday night:

"Laurie Penny-- a reporter for The New Statesman, The Independent, The Guardian, Al-Jazeera, and The Nation-- tweeted that she began to cross 6th Avenue while looking the other way (because Brits drive on the left side of the road) when Ryan Gosling screamed, "Hey, watch out!" and grabbed her before she could be hit by an oncoming taxi.

Penny was able to confirm his identity when a woman next to her said, "you lucky bitch."

"You lucky bitch" indeed.

It's not the first time Gosling has been a "hero" in New York. In August last year he broke up a fight between two chaps in the middle of a pedestrian crossing. Some mildly hysterical women caught the whole thing on camera.
