Celeb Causes - Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey wasn't acting when he gave an unconscious woman mouth-to-mouth during the Toronto International Film Festival. A woman went into seizures during the screening of 13 Conversations About One Thing and Toronto police say Matthew's quick response saved the woman's life.

Matthew McConaughey's Humble Response

"It was no big deal. She needed help and I was there," said Matthew.

"Nonsense," actress Amy Iving argued. Amy is the co-star in the film and was nearby when it happened. "He's a hero. He did something when the rest of us didn't know what to do."

The entire real-life scene could have been out of movie. If the situation wasn't as serious, it might have been a comedy. During the movie, 13 Conversations About One Thing, someone onscreen said, "Why do you want a doctor?" Then, somebody in the audience yelled out to turn on the lights and that a doctor was needed. The well-dressed audience of celebs, Canadian press, actors and politicians laughed. They thought it was a joke. But when they saw a lady collapsed on the floor, the lights immediately went on and the film stopped.

"It was very scary because we knew if we jumped up and ran for the doors or ran over to help, then it would only create more of a panic," Actress Clea Duvall told Zap2it.com. "I just sat in my chair. I didn't know what to do. It was very scary. I didn't really know what happened until after the screening."

Still, Matthew remains modest about his heroic actions. "Someone was saying they needed a doctor and this woman had a seizure and she wasn't breathing. I gave her mouth-to-mouth because I had been trained on how to do it."

Another actor at the scene, Alan Arkin, joked, "She woke up and saw him kissing her and now we know why she had the seizure." Matthew added that the woman was standing up by the end of the night and was even laughing. It seems Matthew has the magic touch on-screen and off-screen.

Beautiful people don't have to be famous. They can be moms, dads, brothers, sisters, friends or neighbors... or maybe they are famous. Know anyone knockin' themselves out for a good cause? Feel like singin' their praises? We'd love to profile them.

    I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!)

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
