Meryl Streep and Cher once saved a woman from a mugger by 'going nuts' at him

We smell a movie franchise.

MERYL STREEP AND CHER: The crime-fighting duo we never knew we needed.

Meryl and Cher (Cheryl?) once saved a woman from a mugger in New York City, according to a speech Streep made earlier this week.

Speaking at a Committee To Protect Journalists event, Meryl recounted two incidents in which she had to defend herself or someone else from physical violence.

She mentioned a time she ‘went completely nuts’ at a mugger, then revealed that Cher was there too:

I just went completely nuts and went after this man. Ask Cher – she was there. And the thug ran away, it was a miracle.

This isn’t the first time either of them has mentioned the incident – Cher included it in a 2013 ’25 Things You Don’t Know About Me’ piece for Us Weekly magazine.

It’s in there between lunch with Stephen Hawking and discovering a whole room in her house she didn’t know existed:

Just in case you’re wondering how Meryl and Cher know each other: They worked together on the 1983 drama Silkwood, and will reunite in the upcoming Mamma Mia sequel.

There’s so much more we need to know about this friendship. We can’t wait for that Mamma Mia press tour.
