When Zach Galifianakis hit the red carpet at the Hangover IIIpremiere Monday night, he had one lucky lady on his arm. The comedian brought along Elizabeth "Mimi" Haist, a woman Galifianakis saved from being homeless.
According to The New York Daily News, Galifianakis became close to Haist nearly 20 years ago when she worked for tips in a Los Angeles laundromat. When the actor discovered she was homeless two years ago, he got her an apartment and began paying her rent. Galifianakis also introduced Haist to Renee Zellwegger, who furnished her apartment and buys groceries for the 87-year-old.
