Tiffany claimed the deal didn’t align with her brand so she couldn’t accept it.
Haddish has been very open about her past, often speaking about how she was poor and homeless. Fortunately, things have changed for the better, but the comedian still fears things could go wrong. “When I started making a little bit of money,” she told Cosmopolitan, “I started trying to figure out how to create generational wealth… Now I have a surplus of money, but I’m still afraid of being poor again.”
Now that her bank account looks nice, she’s been able to turn down deals that don’t resonate with who she is. She told the magazine about a time she turned down a whopping $10M to post something on social media. When explaining why, she stated, “… my soul is worth more than that to me. My spirit, my integrity, how I want to be able to look at myself in the mirror every day…I’d rather be flat broke than get money to do something that makes me feel like sh*t.”
At the beginning of her career, Haddish would take acting roles just because– but now, she thinks deeper. “Now, it’s what seems like fun and what resonates with my soul,” she told Cosmo.
