On Monday, Jamie Foxx made headlines when he pulled a man out of a fiery car crash, but when Foxx was asked about the heroic deeds, he tried to downplay his actions.

“I don’t look at it as heroic, I look at it, like, you just had to do something and it all just worked out,” Foxx said during a press conference outside his home. The father of the man he rescued was also present at the press conference.

The driver, 32-year-old Brett Kyle, reportedly ran off the road and hit a ditch, and his pickup truck went rolling multiple times before it eventually caught fire. Foxx and another passerby rushed to get Kyle out of his seatbelt and away from the crash.

“I told [Kyle] as we were talking, I said, ‘Listen,’ as I’m getting him out, ‘You gotta help me get you out ’cause I don’t want to have to leave you,'” Foxx recalled. “I said, ‘You got angels around you. You have angels around you.’ I kept saying this.”

Foxx also praised the other passerby, Christian, for his actions.

“I said [to Christian], ‘That’s God doing something right now,'” he said. “We’ll sit up one day and have some waters and talk about it.”
