Guy Pearce Saves Kate Winslet’s Life

Guy Pearce has reportedly saved the life of co-star Kate Winslet, on the set of their new HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce.

While the pair were being filmed driving a 1929 Cord car, the Aussie actor swerved to avoid an oncoming van, escaping a collision.

The artist formerly known as Mike from Neighbors said, “We’d finished a take, and a van came onto the road that we were on without seeing us,” in an interview with People magazine.

“We both had to sort of swerve to get out of each other’s way, and I thought… Wow!”

Struth. Mildred Pearce, a five hour miniseries based on the book by James M.Cain’s novel, starts on HBO tonight.
