Tiffany Haddish is the people’s celebrity.
And, tbh, we would’ve done the same damn thing. In case you missed it, the comedienne was at the 90th Academy Awards as she was presenting the nominees for animated and live action short films alongside Maya Rudolph. However, during a red carpet chat with Ryan Seacrest, Miz Haddish revealed the REAL reason she was at the Hollywood event:
“I’m looking forward to meeting Meryl Streep and asking her to be my mama.”
We’re dead. And Tiffany knows how to achieve her dreams, as when she spotted Meryl strutting down the red carpet, she hopped over a rope to introduce herself. Don’t believe us?? Watch the encounter go down (below)!
YASSSSSSS. Get your meet and greet, girl!
Although their meeting was brief, a laughing Streep clearly enjoyed her time with Haddish. It probably helped that Tiffany treated Meryl like the Hollywood royalty she is and ended the visit with a curtsey.
Fingers crossed these two ladies collaborate on something in the future!!
