Zoe Saldana used her on-screen heroism to good use in real life on Wednesday when she helped an elderly woman who had gotten into a car accident in Culver City, CA.
People.com reports that the part-Dominican, part-Puerto Rican Avatar actress “witnessed the car accident and was very quick to help.” An onlooker at the scene of the accident said that Saldana “immediately got on the phone with 911 and she seemed very concerned.”
She and another passerby assisted the woman -- who was visibly injured – from her car to the curb. They waited for police and paramedics to arrive.
“While waiting for help to arrive, Zoe returned to the woman’s car and picked up the woman’s handbag and sweater,” an onlooker said. “Zoe was very caring and sweet to the woman.”
