Most movie scripts are great, and the writers are very talented, but judging from these stories they should probably take a page out of the real lives of these celebrities. Who knew some of them still run out of burning buildings in their free time? Here are 15 famous people that went above and beyond to save the lives of others.
Alex Trebek hosted the National Geographic World Championship in 2011, but he had to hobble onto the stage thanks to his crutches. His explanation went like this:

Apparently just the night before, the 72-year-old chased down a woman who had broken into his hotel room and stolen his phone and wallet. He may have broken his Achilles tendon, but justice was served.
