Washington, Apr 7 : Johnny Depp proved that he is a real-life hero by saving a group of extras from being struck down by an out-of-control car on the sets of his new movie.
The 44-year-old actor was shooting a scene as bank robber John Dillinger in his latest crime flick 'Public Enemies', when a stuntdriver in a 1933 Ford car sped onto a patch of ice and skidded towards six extras.
Oblivious to the approaching danger, the extras were standing with their backs turned, and were finally rescued by the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' star.
The moment Depp spotted the potentially fatal incident, he leapt into air towards the extras and shoved them all away from the speeding car.
"Johnny slammed into the group with arms outspread, shoving them all back." Contactmusic quoted an eyewitness, as telling News of the World.
