Tiffany Haddish Hit on Leonardo DiCaprio
In Girl’s Trip, Tiffany Haddish’s character, Dina, offers up a prayer. A plea to God, if you will, saying, “We’re going to get messed up and let me get pregnant by somebody rich, that’s all I ask. Amen. That’s all I ask, Lord.” Arguably, half of prayer is asking and half is making moves when an opportunity is presented in front of you. Haddish may not be Dina in real life, but if God were listening, he delivered on her plea. And according to a new interview in The Hollywood Reporter, Haddish took her shot.
In a tell-all interview that covers who bit Beyoncé (it was Sanaa Lathan) and whether Roseanne is low-key racist (she is), Haddish hopped into a moment she had with DiCaprio at a party a few months ago:
“I met him at a party two, three months ago, and I asked him if he’d let me hit that,” she told the magazine. “He’s like, ‘Tiffany, you’re so funny.’ I’m like, ‘I’m serious.’ And then he goes, ‘I mean, I’d do it, but …’ I was like, ‘Come on, wasn’t you in a squad? The coochie squad or something?'”
Classic Coochie Party call out. What Hadish is referencing is the “Pussy Posse,” which was a name given to the trio of DiCaprio, Kevin Connolly, and Tobey Maguire. (That’s a pretty wild name—and trio—for 2018, but the early aughts were like the Wild West of Hollywood, and by that I mean people wore a lot of denim.)
She goes onto say that her only stipulation is that she wanted him to approach the whole tryst as his character from What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. Because there’s no safe way to describe this in words, here’s a clip of his performance.
DiCaprio was nominated for an Academy Award but didn’t win, so Haddish wanted to offer him a real award—and by real award, she means her body.
“He starts goin’ into how he got into the role, how he worked with these kids and all this stuff, and I’m just listenin’ and listenin’, like, ‘Mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm,'” Haddish continued. “I finally go, ‘All that’s good, I just need to know, When’s this gonna happen?'”
While the approach itself may not have been successful, take it from Tiffany Haddish: When an opportunity presents itself, throw yourself at it (with consent).
