Pierce Brosnan turns real-life hero, saves Uma ThurmanMay 29th, 2009 - 5:54 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 29 (ANI): Actor Pierce Brosnan became a real life hero when he saved co-star Uma Thurman from an out-of-control van, it has emerged.
According to the reports, former James Bond star was shooting on the set of ‘Percy Jackson And The Lightning Thief’ when he noticed a runaway vehicle hurtling down a hill towards Thurman, reports the Daily Express.
The 56-year-old star immediately sprung into action. He jumped into the stunt car and pushed the brakes to veer into a curb instead of an assembled group of cast and crew.
Meanwhile, the actor undertook his first tour of the White House on May 19 and met with staff to discuss the preservation of whales.
Brosnan told Politico he didn’t meet President Barack Obama but was thoroughly impressed by his first glimpse inside the White House. (ANI)
