AT THIS STAGE, Tiffany Haddish is pretty well known for her inability to keep her mouth shut.

Remember the drama she caused when she shared the story about someone in Hollywood biting Beyoncé’s face at a party? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

On Friday night, Tiffany appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Jimmy couldn’t help but ask her about her passion for sharing ridiculous stories about celebrities.

Do celebrities, big celebrities in particular, now worry about interacting with you, because they might become part of your comedy act?

Tiffany admitted that she really doesn’t know, but so far, so good. As far as she can tell, no celebrities are purposely trying to avoid her. She also said that she’s not as bad as we all think, insisting that she’s seen some wild stuff at some of the functions that she has been to, but will carry those secrets to her grave.

Then, Jimmy Kimmel asked her about Leonardo DiCaprio.


Tiffany revealed that because of an earlier conversation with comedian Kevin Hart, she had written up a list of men in Hollywood she would like to have a baby with. Then, she saw Leonardo DiCaprio at a big party and thought to herself “I’ve got to work on the goal.”

I saw him and I walked up to him and I said “Hi, Leonardo. My name is Tiffany Haddish. I think that you are such a talented person.” He said “Thank you! I think you’re really funny, I saw you with Chris Rock.” So I said “Thank you, thank you. I wanna tell you something.” And he was like “What?” And I was like “I wanna hit.”

Okay, just a bit direct. Leonardo asked what she meant, and Tiffany clarified:

I want to hit that – I ain’t talking about drugs. He was like “Oh, you’re hilarious.” I was like, no there’s stipulations to it though. I want get some, but I only want to do it to you as your character out of What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

Leonardo was really confused. And so are we. Tiffany said:

I think you did an excellent performance and I feel like you deserve an award… And here it is.

Leonardo wasn’t up for it, but she said that the offer was still on the table.

I don’t know if he thought I was playing, but I was dead serious. Call me.

Jimmy then asked if love-making in character was a regular occurrence for Tiffany, and she confirmed it was. She met a guy a few months ago who was an unemployed actor, and she agreed to let him live in her house on one condition.

When I come home, I want you to be a different character from black history every time I come home. Let’s see your skills. I wanna see Thurgood Marshall, Martin Luther King, maybe Malcolm X, y’know what I’m saying.  Forget it, be Harriet Tubman, show me where the railway road is.
