Tiffany Haddish Turned Down Role In Chris Rock Movie Because Of Graphic Sex Scene
Tiffany Haddish is teaching women a big lesson in terms of keeping your morals in tact. The comedian/actress expressed the reason that she turned down a role in Chris Rock’s 2014 star-studded movie, “Top Five“.
Tiffany Haddish said,
You know, when I first hit the scene, I was offered a lot of roles where they want you to expose your breasts. I remember that movie that Chris Rock did [Top Five] and it’s like he meets the two girls and they have a threesome and then Cedric [the Entertainer] gets in there and he’s supposed to “blah” all over their faces — just let that baby batter go all up in their face. And it was like, “Tiffany, they’re offering you the role.” And I was like, “I don’t want that role. I’m a stand-up comedian and I don’t let people do that in my face in real life, so why would I do it in this movie?” Like, you ought to have a little bit of respect for me, period. God made this face for a reason, and you’re not going to disrespect it.
She continued on saying,
I feel like sometimes my representation tries to get me to go outside my lane, and if it is against my morals — and I do have some, I know I’m a little wild, but I do have standards — then somebody might get fired. It’s like, I’m a company, I’m a brand, and if you try to go against the policy of the company, you might not need to be working here anymore. So my people, we have weekly conversations about where I’m at mentally, what I want to do. And right now, almost everything I’m doing, I’m producing.
Tiffany Haddish’s career began to skyrocket after her hilarious and raunchy role in “Girl’s Trip” in 2017. She admits to being a little wild, but has always added a twist of comedy to what she does.
Who knows where her career would have taken her if she was introduced in 2014 with “Top Five,” but Tiffany Haddish certainly isn’t complaining with all that she’s accomplished in just a few short years.
In 2019, the actress, who’s rumored to be dating rapper, Common, released a stand up comedy special on Netflix for her birthday entitled Black Mitzvah. She’s also starring in “The Last O.G.” on TBS alongside comedian/actor, Tracy Morgan.
