It sounds like the two women are more than just fellow celebrities, they are also real-life heroines! The Mama Mia co-stars have apparently saved someone from horrible danger!
Cher was a guest on The Late Late Show With James Corden last night, and that is when she revealed the fact that she and Meryl Streep have been super close friends for decades.
But that’s not all! The two even saved a woman from getting sexually assaulted back in the 1980s.
Cher started by saying that she was worried about walking around the actress’ neighborhood at that time.
‘Meryl had just had Mamie, and we were downtown in her old apartment, and she said, ‘I want some ice cream,’ and I said, ‘OK.’ I said, ‘Isn’t it dangerous down here?’ And [Meryl] said, ‘No, no, it’s Little Italy on one side and Chinatown on the other side, and we will be safe as two peas in a pod.”
‘And so we walk out, and the first thing that we see is some guy hitting cars with a brick. And then we walk down the street, we hear screaming. We come around the corner, and this gigantic man’s ripping the clothes off of this girl,’ Cher went on.
The brave stars did not run away; they did not even waste time on calling for help.
Instead, they ran towards the danger, causing the man to turn around and start heading towards their way.
‘Meryl starts screaming, and I start screaming, and we run toward this gigantic man, and he turns and starts running toward us. And just out of – I don’t know – we split and he ran through us. And so we went up to the girl, and all of her clothes were torn, and she was clutching her bag. So we are putting her together, kind of trying to get her to look like she had not just been ravaged, and she looks at us, and she goes, ‘Oh my God! I was saved by Meryl Streep and Cher.’
‘I am an actress, and I work in a café where we sing, and all my friends are going to be so jealous,’’ Cher recalled the girl told her.
What a great story! Good job ladies!
