Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow Saved Life Of A Woman On 9/11

Gwyneth Paltrow inadvertently saved the life of a woman heading to work in New York's Twin Towers on the fateful morning of 9/11 - the actress almost ran the finance employee over in her car as she dashed across a road.
Lara Lundstrom Clarke was rushing to the subway station to catch her train to downtown Manhattan on September 11, 2001, when she had a close call after stepping into the road without looking.
She recalls, "It was one of those mornings that felt good, you had a little skip in your step... Then all of the sudden, a silver Mercedes Suv came barreling down towards me. I stopped and they (the car) screeched to a halt."
Clarke made eye contact with the driver - and was stunned to see the blonde behind the wheel of the vehicle was Hollywood star Paltrow.
The brief delay caused the then-24 year old to miss her train. She arriving late for work at the World Trade Centre station just moments after the first of two hijacked planes had been flown into the Big Apple landmark by terrorists.
Clarke tells, "At that time I was annoyed at everything that had made me late that day, including Gwyneth Paltrow... (But) if I had made that train I would have been at my desk on the 77th floor of 2 World Trade Center."
She wrote a letter to Paltrow detailing her experience on the morning of the terrorist attacks and the actress' publicist reveals the star was "deeply moved" by the story.
