Tiffany Haddish is gracing Cosmopolitan’s Travel Issue and in her cover story, she recalls turning down $10 million for a post.
The Grammy Award-winning comedian and actress said that she turned down the major payday because it made her “feel like sh*t” and her “soul is worth more than that.”
“I’ve turned down, sh*t, I’ve turned down $10 million just to do a post because it didn’t represent my brand,” she recalled.
Tiffany added, “I turned down $10 million because my soul is worth more than that to me. My spirit, my integrity, how I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror every day.”
She went on to share how she uses the same soul-checking and balances when it comes to her acting career.
“At first with acting roles, I used to just be like, ‘What seems like fun?’ Now it’s, ‘What seems like fun and what resonates with my soul?’” she explained.
“Then I ask, who else is working on it? Will it be my friends? What I’ve noticed lately, though, is that casting has been coming to me first. So I’ve learned how to fight better too.”
Even with her success, having produced things, awards and nomination, Tiffany Haddish says it’s still a “battle” at times to get the people she wants involved in projects.
“I kind of know what I’m doing,” she said. “Give me an opportunity to make you richer, sir. I might not know how to keep a man, but I know how to make some money.”
Speaking of a man, Tiffany is single and ready to mingle after her split from Common.
She recently slid into the comments of a video posted by NBA star Serge Ibaka and wrote:
“The toilet paper mask got me in my feelings, cause if I saw you doing that in my house. I am going to have to Wipe my lady part on your toilet paper face. ???”
