Weaver stated that she was impressed by the gesture of the duo. “I turned to Nicole, who I really don’t know at all, and Zoe, and my friend Katie, and I said, ‘Girls, I need help,” Weaver admitted. “The lining is stuck.’ And without a word, they dropped down to the ground and reached up inside my dress, and wrestled this lining down just in time for me to walk on stage. It was such a sisterly moment, I’ll never forget it.”

The 73-year-old, who is currently captivating audiences with her performance in the new crime thriller Master Gardener, revealed the last guilty pleasure she had during a conversation with PEOPLE for their segment, One Last Thing. “Yesterday, I had the best little strawberry tarts I’ve ever had. I was trying to be good, but I just gobbled them up. I have no regrets,” she said.
She also revealed the last item she took off a production set and the last moment of nostalgia. “I keep costumes from parts that meant a lot to me. I have all the Ripley ones [from the Alien films], including the NASA flight suit. It’s in our attic,” Weaver confessed. “I live in New York City, and I walked the dog last night to the 59th Street Bridge; I grew up in the same neighborhood. The city changes, but the bridge looks the same. I just felt like I was home.”
