Mega superstar Tom Cruise isn’t too big to get his hands dirty when it comes to helping someone else. Back in 1996, the Mission Impossible star witnessed a woman struck by a hit and run driver in Los Angeles. The future action hero was by her side in an instant. Cruise called 911 and stayed with the woman until paramedics arrived. Not ready to take off his super hero cape just yet, Cruise followed the ambulance to the hospital and even took care of the woman’s hospital bills (totaling $7,000) when he found out she had no medical coverage.
