Hollywood actor Pierce Brosnan saved Uma Thurman from a runaway mini van.
The Irish actor, who was on location filming new movie Percy Jackson, spotted the out-of-control vehicle speeding down a hill straight towards his blonde co-star, reported femalefirst.co.uk
"No one was aboard the runaway van as it barrelled towards a grassy area where Uma was relaxing with cast and crew.
Pierce yelled, 'Get out of the way,'" said a source.
"He raced after the van, wrenched open the driver's side door, jumped in and slammed on the brakes," added the source.
Before the actor managed to stop the vehicle, it hit a curb and crashed into rubbish bins sending cast and crew running in all directions to avoid the collision.
