Zach Galifianakis hasn’t even been married a year, but he has another leading lady in his life.

When the bearded funnyman was just getting his start in show business in the 90s, he struck up a friendship with Elizabeth “Mimi” Haist, a woman who volunteered at a Los Angeles laundromat and depended on tips from customers, the New York Daily News reports. When Galifianakis learned two years ago that his friend had fallen on hard times and was homeless, he got her an apartment and started taking her to red carpet events.

Haist, 87, told the paper that she loves the spotlight and the parties and is preparing to go as Galifianakis’ date to the upcoming Hangover III premiere.

“I’m looking forward to it, I like the excitement of it,” Haist told the paper.

Awwww, isn’t that sweet?
