When it was revealed that Gwyneth Paltrow saved a woman's life on September 11, 2001 by almost hitting her with her Mercedes SUV on 7th Avenue, thus making her miss her train to work at the World Trade Center, the nation came together by promising to add Sliding Doors to their Netflix cue. At the Venice Film Festival, Gwyneth spoke for the first time about her newly discovered hero status: "I was on the way home…and a girl was jaywalking across the street and we kind of both stopped at the same time." She didn't even use her paparazzi-grade cowcatcher—how magnanimous!

The woman Paltrow "saved" has said, "If I had made the train, I would have been at my desk" when the planes hit the twin towers, but Paltrow wonders about "all of the people who had experiences like that that day," but with the non-famous heroes. "I am very humbly happy to be a part of her story." No word on whether the gallant Dave Henderson will ever be honored: Henderson heroically sat on Sally Thompson's headphones shortly before she could listen to Coldplay's Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends on a city bus.
