The aim of this educational review article was to identify cases of Hollywood stars who have been involved in aquatics. A literature search was conducted using the terms ‘drowning’, ‘Hollywood’, ‘actor’, rescue’, ‘aquatics’, ‘swimming’ and ‘lifeguard’. It was found that several Hollywood film stars (n = 33; males = 20, females = 13) have worked as lifeguards (n = 12), performed lifeguard rescues (n = 2), or lifesaving rescues (n = 4), were aquatics athletes (n = 6), or suffered drown-related incidents (n = 9). A brief overview of those actors and their involvement in aquatics is presented.
