Jamie Foxx is more than just an Oscar winner.
Foxx is now a real-life action hero after he reportedly saved a man from a fiery car wreck outside his home.
According to the New York Daily News, Foxx heard the wreck happen outside the gate of his home in the Hidden Valley neighborhood of northwest Los Angeles Monday night. He called 911, and then ran to the street to see if he could assist. Reports say the driver of the car skidded on wet roads, hit a ditch and rolled the car over.
