Orlando Bloom was snapped helping a stranded jetskier get back to shore in Malibu, California last weekend.

The 38-year-old British actor is known for playing valiant characters like elf warrior Legolas in The Lord of the Rings and Will Turner in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise.

And it appears he has a real-life heroism streak, as Orlando was snapped helping a jetskier in need while out and about with his four-year-old son Flynn in Malibu, California last Sunday, which was Father’s Day in America.

According to X17 Online the thespian, along with a few other helpful citizens, pulled a broken-down wave runner out of the sea onto the shore. The jetskier was unharmed and all parties left the scene with huge smiles on their faces.

Orlando serves as Goodwill Ambassador for charity UNICEF and he has previously spoken about how much philanthropy means to him.

Orlando wants his son Flynn, who he shares with estranged wife Miranda Kerr, to know the value of giving back.

“I can only hope I always instill him with all of the ideas of living your dream, of actually understanding that life is a cyclical thing and that when you give you receive,” he told E! News. “It’s a very karmic thing in my mind… when I grew up, it’s a very… if you give you receive. It’s almost like science, it’s like if you throw something up in the air, it’s gonna come down. Well, the way that you give is the way that you’ll receive. So I hope to inspire him with that if nothing else.”
