Zach Galifianakis brings formerly homeless woman as a date to “Hangover 3” premiere

When Zach Galifianakis brought former homeless woman Elizabeth “Mimi” Haist with him to the premiere of “The Hangover: Part III,” it wasn’t as some sort of weird joke. Instead, the former laundrywoman has been an important part of his life for nearly two decades.

Galifianakis first met Haist when he moved to Los Angeles in 1994. Then an unknown comedian, Galifianakis would come to Fox Laundry to clean his clothes. Haist worked for tips at the laundrymat, and the two soon became close.

About two years ago, Galifianakis learned that Haist was homeless and living with different friends. He then proceeded to find her a one bedroom, one bathroom Santa Monica apartment and paid her rent and utilities to help her get by, rescuing her from a life of homelessness. The 87-year-old has been an important part of Galifianakis’ life since, as she also acted as his plus one for the premieres of “The Hangover: Part II” and “The Campaign.”

“I’m looking forward to it, I like the excitement of it,” Haist told The New York Daily News prior to attending “The Hangover: Part III” Los Angeles premiere on May 20. “If he’s in town, he takes me. Otherwise he lets me take a friend. I dress up nice and a friend helps me with my makeup. It’s fun, not something I’ve ever dreamed I’d experience. The limo takes me home afterwards.”

“The Hangover: Part III” reunites Bradley Cooper, Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, Ken Jeong, Jeffrey Tambor, Jamie Chung, Sasha Barrese, Heather Graham and Gillian Vigman, while introducing new actors like John Goodman and Melissa McCarthy to the franchise as well. “The Hangover Part II” is due in theaters on May 24, 2013. The logline for the movie reads, “This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.”

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
