Renee Zellweger, Zach Galifianakis Support Homeless Woman
Renee Zellweger and Zach Galifianakis = Two very Nice Celebritites
Turns out that not all celebs are narcisistic, self-centered folks. Just take Renee Zellweger and Zach Galifianakis who've gone above and beyond to care for a neighbor.
According to Star magazine (which, believe it or not, typically gets these things right on the nose), the two actors live in Santa Monica and, years ago at separate times, befriended a woman who works in a laundromat.
As the story goes, when Galifianakis learned that the woman was homeless, he rented an apartment for her -- one that he's been paying for for over two years. Galifianakis told Zellweger about it and she furnished the pad and makes sure that the woman's fridge remains stocked with food.
Here's the story as Star printed it in next week's edition of the magazine:
Zach Galifianakis and Renee Zellweger have come to the rescue of one very lucky lady in Los Angeles. According to a source, Zach and Renee teamed up to take care of a homeless woman living in their neighborhood. “Zach befriended an elderly woman named Mimi, who worked at Fox Coin Laundry in Santa Monica,” a source tells Star. And when the Hangover funnyman learned that Mimi had no home or family, Zach took action! “It just broke his heart, so he decided to rent an apartment for her – and he has been covering her rent and utilities for two years now,” says the tipster, adding that fellow fluff-and-fold patron Renee wanted to help too, so “she furnished the apartment and makes sure that Mimi always has food in her fridge.”
Isn't that refreshing? You can see an interview with the 80 year-old woman, Mimi, over at Celebitchy.
