MOORPARK, CA – If you’re Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx and you see something bad happening outside your mansion, what do you do?

Well, you could be real smooth about it. You know, like a fancy-schmancy movie star, or you could go full-bore dramatic and make a big, Hollywood street entrance to see what’s happenin’, baby.

Turns out Foxx was one of two guys who had to break a window and cut the seatbelt to pull a driver out of his burning truck just seconds before it blew up.

Foxx and Brad Kyle, the father of the man he pulled to safety, exchanged a hug while talking with reporters.

"I think we all hope that we could do something when the time is there,” Kyle said, “but the question is, do we? Do we act, or do we fear for our own lives? And he did not."

Police say 32-year-old Brett Kyle was speeding and driving under the influence when he swerved off the road into a drainage ditch, flipping his truck several times before it burst into flames in front of Foxx’s Ventura County mansion.

"I don't look at it as heroic,” Foxx said. “I just look at it, like, I just had to do something. And it all just worked out."

Foxx invited brad Kyle to look at security video of the crash that almost killed his son.

Afterward it was a big hug for the Foxx who became a guardian angel.
