Tiffany Haddish, Tyson Beckford

Tiffany Haddish is not playing about her money. The Night School star asks for a manly fee when her rep negotiates her movie contracts.

Haddish's career has taken off since her breakthrough role as Dina in 2017's Girls Trip and she has most recently appeared in The Oath.

The actress says she's not afraid to talk about money and will always command a "guy's fee" that she believes she deserves.

The comedic actress argued that women in the entertainment industry don't typically get paid the same as male stars because they don't "talk about it".

"You know what they say? 'A close mouth don't get fed.' And a lot of times we don't open our mouths because we don't even really know what we're supposed to get," she said in an interview with Variety magazine.

"So, that's why I do the research. I ask around. I've made friends with line producers that cut those checks, production managers, so I can be like, 'So, on average, how much does a girl get paid for? How much does a guy get paid?' O.K., I'm gonna ask for the guy fee on this one."

Becoming financially secure is an important milestone for the star, who once lived in her car while she was working on getting her big break.

"I care about being able to take care of my grandma, take care of my mama, my niece, my sister, and brother, and if I ever have children take care of them, create some generational wealth," the 38-year-old insisted. "And I think the only way to do that is to have some money so you can buy some land and things like that, and then buy a studio. Yeah, I need cheques! I don't think anybody's obligated to give me anything. I only think I deserve what I work for and that's that."

Haddish poses for a photo with actor/model Tyson Beckford in a photo dated September 30.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Dave was great his delivery and timing is always on point. He had an Asian wife and biracial children in the movie I wondered if it was his real family

  • Coy little wink

    Go...get ready to cry though its a tearjerker

  • tia

    I don't think she is that funny. However, I am not knocking this sister's hustle either.While she's hot, she may as well make them pay like they weigh. Because when they done with you, they will chew you up and spit you out and not look back. In this life, nobody is loyal to anybody.

  • Tahj

    She gotta get while she can!!!

  • free

    true. she had a choice to make and she made it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • Yoni7

    I don't know what movie you all are speaking of but......YES, Dave IS married to an Asian woman.

  • ohdearme

    She asks for a "manly" fee? The jokes that could be made with that little tidbit given her features.

  • Wreckognize Game

    It's longer than an hour and a half? No way. They both make me nervous.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Love it! I remember negotiating my current job, they went quiet for three days and I was low key nervous but I knew my worth. It's been almost three years now and getting that 40% jump in salary has opened so many doors for me. Don't be afraid to ask for what you're worth.

  • Coy little wink

    It was just about over. I chuckled a few times it was silliness

  • Quitedeliteful

    A 40% jump?!? Congratulations!!!

  • Wreckognize Game

    On the strength of Whoopi I want to go see that movie.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!

  • Coy little wink

    I'm aware that's why I wondered. He played a retired musician in A star is born....

  • Nik

    40%?? Bless you, honey! That's a giant leap for womankind.

  • Carrington

    I ain't mad at her if she can get it. Get it while you can, Tiff - I can see your career ending after about 3, or 4 more films.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Good for her! She better get all the coins she can while she can. The internet sez she's worth 2 million -- not a bad start...

  • Django the God

    I'll take a modeling gig right about now. My haters don't want to see me eating.

  • Li-Wright

  • Li-Wright

    Show business is an iffy business. Hot today, cold tomorrow.

  • Li-Wright

    I wish when I was younger I knew about negotiating salaries. It wasn't until I got much much older that info about negotiating salaries came out.

  • Courtney Wheeler

    she better start making good movies.

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    Yesssssssssss, say it again and CONGRATS!
    I am going through this right now. I'm taking this as confirmation to stand firm. THANK YOU!

  • Guest

  • LYRICS

    Over! i didn't even get under...............

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I don't think she's that funny either, but I do think she's got a chance as an actress. Not necessarily a comedic actress though, I think with the right serious/slightly funny role she could really be something. But she's gotta get away from that ratchet azz persona they want to stick her in. It's only gonna mess with her checks in the long run

  • Logan Roberts

    Yes hurry up and get what money you can before the rest of the folks catch up to see that you're not funny at all. But I do respect your hustle.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I hope Tiffany finds her own man soon. She always looks so horny and sexually frustrated.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I see you Django....Lookin like a snack with the flamingo tights on...

  • Renee26

    ALL women should be negotiating their pay rate in this day and age. When you get that offer letter send it back with a counter offer and if you get any pushback (I never have) then be prepared to sell yourself by pointing out what unique skills you bring to the table.... Blk women are the LEAST likely to negotiate their pay... Change the statistics ladies...tell a friend.

  • free

    we're gonna need to put you through morning wood.... hopefully we see you on the other side.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It was sooooooo good!!! It on premiere night and wasn't disappointed...there were not alot of "US" in the theater but it was worth the watch...Gaga and Bradley were believable as a couple...it was a tearjerker tho...

  • Renee26

    Aww snap we see you! You've beefed up since last year...get it!!

  • Django the God
  • Django the God

    I'm eatin'.

  • Renee26

    She said she doesn't have time to date...one gig to the next so she has a weighted blanket and a toy..... She's paper chasing right now

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    LOLOLOLOL...I wanna recommend so many men for Morning Wood who swear they are god's gift but the way my karma setup I may neva find a husband...

  • Quitedeliteful

  • ALLMINE?

    Omg

  • Judge Mental Will

    Said Hollywood still find ways to f*ck women. It may be Mentally but its still not right. In China a Citizen movie star only allowed to make so much and if the government find out they was paid under the table the go to jail. Like one actress i just read about. Harsh but at least they get paid the same.

  • ALLMINE?

    Tyson really gonna be 48? ? Tf this nigga drinking?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yes, she better learn from Amy Schumer.

  • MsPam

    She must talking about Will Packer and Tyler Perry because I would love to be a fly on the wall when she ask the yt man for manly pay. They will tell her that they don’t pay buffoons manly pay. IMO

  • HalleMerry

    Kevin Hart is STILL playing that SAME character! Hope it works out for her...I mean I won't be watching either of them,but good for them!

  • HalleMerry

  • JazzyBossyJen

  • SunRiseBlossom

    LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuup...

  • T Willis

    Yep, he really does have an Asian wife and a biracial son. I think David Alan Grier does too

  • AG

  • the chosen one

    Unfunny she is.

  • Malcom Flex

    She looks a whole 50 years old.

  • dblogged

    You do

  • ALLMINE?

    Nope.

  • Amanda

    Exactly.

  • Amanda

    Nigga, it sounds like you're the one that's horny! That woman don't have time for that sh*t.

  • Amanda

    Stfu. Name one black comedian (besides Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle) that ISN'T ghetto!

  • Amanda

    Agreed but, all "ratchet ass" persona talk is overrated. She that damn ghetto! Quit overexaggerating.

  • Amanda

    Unlike AND Monique!

  • Amanda

    Damn, nigga...your a$$ is hating like a mofo! Can't stand to see a black woman winning, huh? SMFH

  • Amanda

    Wow, look all you hating ass mfs?! Negroes can't stand to see a successful black woman! Since all you mfs hating so hard, I like her even more. I can see why the niggas are hatin'. That's all y'all do (especially if the woman's dark-skinned) so, no surprise there. But, what's you chicks' excuse??? My guess is if she were the female Dave Chappelle (the ONLY comic that I think is funny), the hating would be worse!!! You mfs are suffering from CIABS (Crabs In A Barrel Syndrome). See medical attention quick!

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    HELLO!!

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    She better get all she can and I like her but she's not funny.

  • dblogged

    Those niggas too...no exception

  • Lolly Asher

    Ah I thought "manly rate" was referring to something totally different.

  • Greatgrape37

    Smart business woman she is

  • Greatgrape37

    Ignorant

  • Guess Who

    *SIGH* For what? So she can shuck and jive harder and faster?

  • Sauvignon blanc and Weed?

    But, what's you chicks' excuse??? ???

    The most profound question on this s h i t y blog ever! Then followed by
    "You mfs are suffering from CIABS (Crabs In A Barrel Syndrome). See medical attention quick!

    Something's very wrong with most black people towards other black people that's trying to be successful....Sad?
