Legendary actor and director Warren Beatty reportedly rushed to assist a man who fainted during the debut of his new movie, “Rules Don’t Apply,” in Los Angeles.

About 10 minutes into the Oct. 13 debut at 20th Century Fox, a man who started to leave the screening fainted in one of the aisles, The Hollywood Reporter reported Friday afternoon.

“He was moaning and groaning,” a source told THR.

Guests shouted for help and Mr. Beatty, 79, was reportedly among those who jumped out of their seats to assist the man.

“The film was not stopped,” the source said. “A few people got up, including Warren, and some other guy was leaning over the guy, about to perform CPR.”

The source said security called 911.

“The guy finally composed himself, was helped up and escorted out,” the source added.

A source close to the film didn’t reveal the man’s identity but did confirm that he was “fine” after the medical scare, THR reported.
