Hollywood actress Zoe Saldana was a real life hero after witnessing a car accident involving an elderly woman in Southern California earlier this week.

The “Avatar” actress was apparently driving in Culver City when she saw a car accident. Not one to simply drive on by, Saldana ran to the aid of the elderly woman involved in the crash. She helped the woman out of her car, sat her on the curb, and called 911.

She and another passerby reportedly stayed with the bloody-faced woman until an ambulance arrived. Saldana even climbed into the woman’s damaged vehicle to grab her bag and sweater for her.

Saldana, 33, is used to playing the hero in her many action roles, but she showed just how much of a hero she really is.
