Whether it's helping people get out of burning car or saving people who are drowning, these celebrities seemingly don't even care if they are the ones who end up getting hurt.

AceShowbiz - When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans back in 2005, Sean Penn was among the celebrities who offered help to save the victims. He attempted to rescue the victim using a small boat, but it sprang a leak within seconds of its launch. Penn didn't give up though, scooping water out of it with a plastic cup. After much struggles and effort, he managed to save about forty stranded victims.

"I witnessed him rescuing up to 40 people," Douglas Brinkley said at the time, before referencing to the actor's infamous trip to Iraq. "He was up to his waist in toxic muck... I'm not going to comment on Sean's trips to Iraq or Iran, but in this case, he was an American hero."
