Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange were good Samaritans to their fellow New Yorkers while out on a walk in the city on Friday.

The two actresses, who starred together in Ryan Murphy's Feud: Bette and Joan, were photographed taking a stroll in Manhattan.

Lange, 71, wore a black puffer jacket, jeans and sneakers while Sarandon, 74, wore a burgundy jacket, a red pageboy cap, navy pants, striped socks and ankle-length boots.

The two were spotted taking the time to give money to a man, and helping an older woman with a cane into her wheelchair.

The Oscar-winning actresses previously shared the screen in 2017's FX limited series Feud: Bette and Joan in which they played legendary stars Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during the making of their iconic 1962 film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

In 2017, Sarandon and Lange discussed playing the two actresses during the Golden Age of cinema.

"Women are viewed as a commodity more so than male actors," Lange told PEOPLE at the time. "At a certain age, women are no longer considered a viable or a valuable part of the community — even if that's when they may feel like they're at the top of their game. And that's not just in Hollywood."

Sarandon, who played Davis, told PEOPLE she believed her onscreen inspiration was more successful than other aging actresses at the time because she was never considered a traditional beauty.

"Bette was never considered beautiful. From the very first moment she went to Hollywood, she overheard someone say, 'Who would want to have her in the picture?' They tried to bleach her hair and do things to her, but she was just the odd woman out," says Sarandon. "But that meant she had an advantage because she uglified herself even when she was younger. It's easier to be a character actor and age and continue to work. I think I've benefited from being a character actor in the same way."

Both Lange and Sarandon received acclaim for their performances in the series, receiving identical Golden Globe nominations for best performance by an actress in a limited series or a motion picture made for television.
