A video posted on YouTube shows a man who strongly resembles the actor breaking up a street scuffle in New York City over the weekend.
Several adult men are seen arguing in a crosswalk over a stolen painting before someone who looks suspiciously like Gosling, 30, starts to cross the street and breaks up the altercation, gently leading the men onto the sidewalk.
The incident was caught on amateur video by onlookers, who can be heard excitedly shrieking once they recognize who they're filming.
"That's the guy from the movies!" one exclaims.
Gosling, who resides in the Big Apple, is currently filmingThe Place Beyond the Pines.
A rep for the actor has not yet responded to a request for comment.
