Brad Pitt saves an extra on the set of 'World War Z' (report)

First Ryan Gosling broke up a street-fight. Then Kate Winslet rescued Richard Branson’s mother. Now, completing this week’s hat trick of celebrity heroism, Brad Pitt has reportedly saved an extra from being trampled on the set of World War Z. According to the Scottish Sun, a group of over 700 extras was filming a scene in Glasgow’s George Square, involving a mad rush to escape a zombie attack. A woman fell on the ground, in danger of being trampled; Pitt, who plays the film’s protagonist, apparently lifted her back to her feet. (Paramount could not be reached for comment.) A source told the Sun, “[Pitt] didn’t have time to speak to her as it was mid-shoot. But she said afterwards how grateful she was, despite having a badly-grazed knee.”
