Some people are full of surprises, and Tiffany Haddish is definitely one of them. In a new interview, the actress-slash-comedian reveals she and Brad Pitt made a hook-up pact when they met — and, even better, she shares what happened when they ran into each other a year later. Hope you’re thirsty because we’re about to share with you the tea that Haddish just spilled.
Chatting with Harper’s Bazaar for the magazine’s March issue, Haddish opened up about some of her most memorable celebrity interactions. Sarah Silverman gifted her with a fancy electric toothbrush. Billy Crystal and Barbra Streisand came to her 40th birthday bat mitzvah in December. Taylor Swift introduced her to PopSocket phone accessories. And Brad Pitt, well, that’s a very interesting story. Per Haddish, she and Pitt met in an elevator at the Oscars in 2018. She says he told her at the time that if they were both still single in a year, they’d hook up. Then, almost exactly one year later, they ran into each other at a party.
So, what happened? “You could tell he was scared of me. He was like, ‘Oh, shit, Tiffany Haddish is here,’ and doing his eyes shifty,” she recounted, laughing. “I was like, ‘Ain’t nobody fucking with you. You’ve got too many kids.” That’s Haddish’s hilarious version of playing hard to get. “Men got to work for it, you know? They like to hunt. Can’t make it too easy,” she explained.
As far as we can tell, Haddish and Pitt are both still single, meaning there’s still time for this hook-up pact to pan out. But whoever is lucky enough to date Haddish next has to understand one thing: She already has one great love in her life, and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
“I don’t mind anybody talking to me, but if I’m eating, that makes me mad because I have a serious relationship with food,” Haddish told Harper’s Bazaar between bites of shrimp and grits with a side of collard greens (god we love her). “When people come over to me when I’m eating, I’m always surprised they’re not like, ‘Tiffany Haddish is an evil bitch.'”
So, armed with that knowledge, the ball’s in your court, Brad.
