It sounds like something out of a crazy movie, but we’re talking about real life when I tell you that Kate Winslet saved billionaire Richard Branson’s mother from a burning house.

According to TMZ and Branson’s own blog, Branson’s home on Necker Island was caught on fire when a lightning storm hit around 4:00 AM.  20 people were inside, including his 90-year-old mother.

Everyone luckily got out safely, and Branson’s mother had some help from the Oscar winning actress, herself!

Branson wrote on his blog a personal note to Winselet, saying,

“…many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90 year mum out of the main house to safety wondering when a Director was going to shout CUT!”

Reality…sometimes crazier than fiction!
