TIFFANY HADDISH RECEIVES TRAILBLAZER AWARD
Tiffany Haddish received the Trailblazer Award for her achievements in comedy from The Hollywood Confidential at the Saban Theater on Friday night.
Haddish shared with the audience how she picks projects when she is constantly being offered new roles. “Honestly, when I read scripts I always think about 16-year-old Tiffany," she told the crowd. "Would 16-year-old Tiffany want to see this? Would 16-year-old Tiffany want to tell her friends ‘oh, oh, oh, guess what I’m about to go see at the movies. Let’s see if we can get a fake ID and sneak in’...If it made me feel like the young me would be excited to see it, then that’s what I’m going to do.”
She was also candid about the hardships she faced early in her life, from being placed in foster care at 12 years old to struggling with poverty and homelessness as an adult and the mindset she needed to overcome it. “It’s just being willing to be vulnerable and to have courage and believe that God has your back," she said. "If you believe and love and approve of yourself then the world will believe and love and approve of you.”
Congratulations to Miss She Ready 👏🏽 🙏🏽
