Is Patrick Dempsey More Heroic Than Ryan Gosling?

Maybe, according to this TMZ account. Apparently, when a teenage boy crashed his car outside Dempsey's Malibu home, the Grey's Anatomy actor rushed outside, crowbar in hand. And then: "Dempsey successfully pulled the driver from the wreckage — a 17-year-old named Weston Massett — who tells TMZ, when he opened his eyes, the actor was looking right down at him. Massett asked, 'Are you famous?'...and Patrick coolly replied, 'I'm a doctor.'" If this is true — and that's at least a medium-size if — then Dempsey could have the street brawl-halting (and possibly journalist-saving) Gosling beat, if only for being a much funnier hero.
