Zach Galifianakis and Mimi Haist Heartworming Story

This is the story of a struggling comedian who reached great success and never forgot where he came from. You probably know Zach Galifianakis from The Hangover movies. Read what he recently did for a homeless woman below – it’s really awesome.

This is Mimi Haist. An 87 year old woman who used to volunteer in the LA laundromat she is seen in here. She got by on the tips left for her by the patrons of the laundromat. Mimi Haist

This is Zach Galifianakis. He was one of those patrons of the LA laundromat where Mimi worked. He met and befriended her in 1994 when he was still a struggling comic. With the success of The Hangover, Zach’s life changed drastically and he lost touch with Mimi. That is until two years ago when he learned that she had become homeless.Zach Galifianakis
After learning of Mimi’s misfortune, Zach Galifianakis found her a one bedroom apartment which he pays the rent for. He also introduced her to Renee Zellweger, who furnished her apartment and buys her groceries. Here she is getting ready for a big night.qq
Zach has taken Mimi to the last two Hangover movie premiers as well the premier for his movie The Campaign. She says she is often mistaken for his “girlfriend.”v
