Actor Jamie Foxx played a real-life hero when he rescued a motorist from a fiery wreck on Monday (18Jan16).
An accident occurred outside Foxx’s Los Angeles home and the Django Unchained star sprung into action to help the driver get out of his vehicle before it burst into flames. The driver was subsequently arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to ABCNews.com.
“Jamie didn’t hesitate,” a representative for the actor tells the news publication. “He jumped out and ran to the car.”
“Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver,” a police spokesperson adds.
Foxx has yet to comment on the news reports.
The driver, 32-year-old Brett Kyle, was taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries – and then booked for DUI.
According to police reports obtained by TMZ.com, Kyle flipped his Toyota Tacoma after hitting a drainage pipe.
In other news, it was recently claimed the actor could potentially go public with his alleged romance with former Dawson’s Creek actress Katie Holmes.
The nature of the two Hollywood star’s relationship has been called into question for the last few years, with pictures emerging of the pair holding hands. While both claim they’re just good friends, those close to Katie and Jamie paint a different story.
“The crazy thing is, they’re already so much a part of each other’s lives and have been dating steadily for the past year,” a source told Britain’s Grazia magazine. “Katie regularly spends time with Jamie’s two daughters, Corinne and Annalise. Katie’s daughter Suri particularly loves Annalise, who has become like a sister.”
However, Jamie’s friendship with Katie’s ex-husband, and nine-year-old Suri’s dad, Tom Cruise is said to be the sticking point.
Jamie and Tom starred opposite each other in 2005’s collateral, and Jamie is said to be hesitant to flaunt his new romance.
“But Katie has been insistent that enough time has passed now for them all to move on and has been begging Jamie to let go of his worries and give their relationship a real chance,” the source added.
