Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but this is a look at some famous heroes. Celebrity Good Samaritans have helped people in need, whether it's pulling someone out of a burning building, saving someone from drowning, helping people on Twitter, or calling the paramedics and waiting with the victim.
These famous people aren't saving lives for the paparazzi's cameras or to boost their reputations: they are just doing what others would in similar dicey situations. Is there something about a celebrity's personality that makes them want to be a first responder?
Either way, we are very thankful for the heroic deeds these famous people have done. Celebrities account for a minority of heroes, but the few lives they've saved are worth more than any celeb's net worth. Just another very important way human lives are touched by the power of celebrity.
