According to the Telegraph, the Forrest Gump actor came to the rescue of a bride and her father. The woman, dressed in a white gown and all set for her wedding, was shocked to see herself and her father blocked by the film crew. Unable to reach the church, she stood distressed beside her father. Luckily, the star spotted them. He asked the director, Ron Howard, to stop the shooting of the movie Angels and Demons to make way for the bride and her father. The 63-year-old actor even accompanied the two, held the bride's hand and carried her veil so that it doesn't drag on the floor.
