Those “overexcited female fans” — they’re like zombies on the attack! And Woody Harrelson is a professional zombie hunter.

Actually, the Zombieland star was more like Kevin Costner to Ryan Gosling's Whitney Houston in a real-life taste of The Bodyguard. According to the New York Daily News, Ryan was at Woody's new play, Bullet for Adolf, at New World Stages on Friday night and Woody had to step in and save Ryan from a group of "overexcited female fans" who cornered him during intermission.

Woody “stepped in and played bodyguard,” the source told the NY Daily News. He was “super nice about it, but made it clear that people needed to back up.” Other stars visiting the show this week, but not needing protection, were Matthew McConaughey, Demi Moore, Marlo Thomas, Ashley Olsen, Joan Rivers and Will Ferrell.

Since Woody did such a sweet job for Ry-guy, maybe Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart should hire The Hunger Games champ?
