Thomas Haden Church

Yeah, I Saved a Guy's Life ...

No Biggie!

081712_thomas_hayden_church_launchThomas Haden Church is not the kind of guy to save a human life and then go brag about it on camera ... he's the kind of guy to save a life and then play it off like it's no big deal ... on camera. 

According to our sources, Church was having lunch yesterday at the Soho House in Los Angeles, when a guy at a nearby table started choking. We're told Church sprung into action, administered the Heimlich Maneuver and saved the guy's life.


Our photog caught up with Church later in the day and asked about his lifesaving maneuvers, but the actor was just too damn humble to get into the details. 

Church did get his props at lunch, however ... the Soho House comped his meal.

This TOTALLY makes up for "Spider-Man 3."

Hey Halle Berry, did you read this? He didn't sneak out the back door when someone was in distress. Take a lesson in humanity from THC ...

I guess heros don't have to have a leash on their dogs.

Fantastic, good for him! However, TMZ, you're misusing the word 'hero'. A hero is someone who places themselves in danger of injury or death to save/help someone, not just someone who helps somebody with no risk to themselves. When he runs into a burning building to save someone, then call him a 'hero'.

Can't call it the Heimlich anymore.....he died and the family is trying to make $$$$ off the name even though they had NOTHING to do with it....
