Jamie Foxx saved someone from a burning car last night, but he’s staying modest about it.

The Oscar-winning actor told reporters on Tuesday that he only did what felt natural.

“I’m not a hero,” he said, “but had to do something.”

Foxx, 48, pulled a man — who was allegedly driving under the influence — from a burning car last night after an accident took place near his Los Angeles-area home, a member of Foxx’s team confirmed to ABC News today. A rep for the actor also confirmed the news.

“Jamie didn’t hesitate. He jumped out and ran to the car,” the team member told ABC News of the incident.

Police said that a 32-year-old man, Brett Kyle, was driving his Toyota Tacoma when he hit a “drainage ditch,” causing the vehicle to roll many times over and burst into flames.

“Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver. One of the witnesses retrieved a rescue tool from his vehicle allowing the two citizens to break the window, cut the seat belt, and extricate the driver,” cops added, noting that the driver was eventually “arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.”
