AceShowbiz - People may recognize Steve Buscemi as a "strangely attractive shoelace," but little did they know he used to be a firefighter back in 1980s. And when the Twin Towers were attacked in September 2001, he put his life on the line by returning to his old job and helped firefighters search for survivors in the rubble of the World Trade Center.
It's worth noting that he didn't do it just once. The actor worked 12-hour shifts for several days alongside other firefighters. When people tried to get photos and interviewed him during his shift, the actor outright refused. He later broke his silence and said, "It was a privilege to be able to do it," adding that he only wanted to help out because many firefighters were missing along with the rest of the innocent people who had been affected by the terrorist attack.
