Step aside, Ryan Gosling. There's a new hero in town!

On the set of his upcoming zombie flick World War Z in Scotland, Brad Pitt took a turn as a real-life life saver when he rescued a fallen extra.

So what happened?

While shooting a scene in which 700 extras flee a pack of zombies, a woman slipped and fell, putting her at risk of being trampled by her fellow actors.

When Pitt noticed the woman's predicament, he rushed over, picked her up and carried her to safety.

"I don't think she could believe it when Brad picked her up," a set insider told the Scottish Sun.

But it was quickly back to business for the actor, "He 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."

What's a badly-grazed knee when you're in the arms of Brad Pitt?!
