Terrence HowardHustle & Flow star Terrence Howard can add lifesaver to his resume after stepping in to help a choking journalist in a restaurant. The movie star was dining with Los Angeles magazine writer Margot Dougherty at the Four Seasons Hotel when she began choking on a piece of sushi.

Howard, recalling a Heimlich manouver scene in Mrs. Doubtfire, calmly took charge of the situation, folding his arms around the reporter and pumping her stomach to remove the blocked fish.

Grateful Dougherty says, "He wraps his arms around me from behind, makes a fist at my solar plexus and gives two quick tugs. Bingo, I am breathing."

When the gasping journalist asked her lunch guest how he learned about the Heimlich manoeuvre, the actor said, "I saw it on Mrs. Doubtfire. She saved Pierce Brosnan."
