Emilio Estevez Was SAVED From Quicksand By Laurence Fishburne!

“We’d only known each other a couple of days and this was in the Philippines,” Estevez recalled of Fishburne. Estevez explained that the two, who were both 14 at the time, came upon a small boat and Fishburne suggested they get on it, but it was too close to shore.

At this point, Estevez offered to jump out of the boat and push it offshore, but he landed in what he called “quicksand mud.” “I was just sinking, oh my god, and I just saw Fishburne just looking at me going, ‘Quick grab my hand!’ And he pulled me back up on to the boat, and we were bonded ever since,” Estevez told Hudson.
