12. Famous Friends

As an icon in the industry for several decades, it is no surprise that Cher’s inner circle is full of big names, and that means she has excellent celebrity stories to share. During her relationship with Sonny, their closest friends included Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, and Henry Fonda, just to name a few. “I knew Lucy since I was little. I was crazy about her. My mom was an extra on her show. One time, we were at this party, and Johnny Carson got really pissed off at me, because it was the second inauguration of Nixon. I thought Nixon was a big idiot, and Lucy thought he was a big idiot, and she was making jokes, and I was hysterically laughing. Carson got furious and said that I should get out of the room because I was being disrespectful. He would have never said boo to Lucy—she would have chewed him up and spit him out,” Cher revealed in an interview with Vanity Fair. She also takes credit for her close friend Meryl Streep welcoming her daughter Mamie, telling the publication, “I was responsible for Mamie! I take full credit. We were in Texas doing Silkwood, and Don [Gummer] was there with Henry [their son]. Meryl said, ‘We need some time alone. Take Henry—it’s Halloween. Please, just take him.’ So I took Henry, and she got pregnant with Mamie.”
