We all know award-winning actress Meryl Streep for her talent in front of the camera and iconic pop star and actress Cher, but we were shocked to hear of the time they both saved a woman from being attacked in New York. 

Cher recalled the 1980's incident this week during an interview with James Corden. "Meryl had just had (her daughter) Mamie, and we were downtown in her old apartment, and she said, 'I want some ice cream,' and I said, 'OK',"

"And so we walk out and the first thing we see is some guy hitting cars with a brick. And then we walk down the street and we hear screaming. And we come around the corner, and this gigantic man is ripping the clothes off of this girl."

Cher revealed her and Meryl decided to help the young woman and save her. "Meryl starts screaming, and I start screaming, and we run toward this gigantic man and he turns and starts running toward us. And just out of, I don’t know, we split and he ran through us. And so we went up to the girl, and all of her clothes were torn and she was clutching her bag."

"She goes, 'Oh my God! I was saved by Meryl Streep and Cher. I’m an actress, and I work in a café where we sing, and all my friends are going to be so jealous.'"
