Tiffany Haddish has decided to retire her beloved white Alexander McQueen dress after finally getting her money’s worth out of it.

The comedy actress, 39, spent £4,000 (£3,155) on the sleeveless white dress with jewelled collar when she purchased it back in 2017 for the premiere of her movie, Girls Trip, and she was so determined to get full use out of it that she went on to wear the designer purchase while hosting Saturday Night Live, presenting at the 2018 Academy Awards, and then later at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

Wearing the dress during her recent appearance on the Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, Tiffany revealed that this was the last time she’d wear the gown.

“I love this dress and it’s getting tight,” she said to the talk show host after sitting down. “Like my career is getting big and I think my body is getting bigger.”

Looking visibly uncomfortable in the gown, she joked that the dress’ slit doesn’t cover her legs anymore, to which Letterman responded: “Do you want some duct tape?”

When asked by the 72-year-old how many times she’s worn the dress, the comedienne remarked she even wore the Alexander McQueen gown to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

“Five, six, 18 times. I wear it to the grocery store, I wear it to the DMV. That’s how I get recognised. It’s how I get to the front of the line,” she laughed.

During her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live in late 2017, Tiffany joked to the audience: “I feel like I should be able to wear what I want, when I want, however many times I want as long as I Febreeze’d it.”

Zach Galifianakis’ movie version of Between Two Ferns has finally received a release date.

The long-rumoured project between The Hangover star and executives at Netflix was confirmed in December, with production well underway.

Now, the movie – based on the Funny or Die low-budget talk show series – will be released on 20 September.

The announcement was made on Wednesday at the FYSEE Event for My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman in Los Angeles, according to Deadline.

The movie will document Galifianakis and his crew as they take a road trip to complete a series of high-profile celebrity interviews and restore his reputation, after the actor is humiliated by Will Ferrell.

Scott Aukerman, who has directed a number of episodes of Between Two Ferns, will helm the movie alongside Galifianakis.

However, it is not yet known whether the feature will follow the same format as the original, in which the host chats with stars while sitting between two potted ferns.

Galifianakis often trades barbs and insults with his A-list guests for the duration of the interview, and in keeping with the amateur aesthetic of the show, on-screen graphics contain deliberate comedic errors.

Casting is billed as “celebrities you’ve heard of,” but no one was confirmed in the latest announcement.

Yet, editors at The Hollywood Reporter indicated that the likes of Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, TV host Letterman, and actor Keanu Reeves may appear. In addition, the 49-year-old’s co-stars from The Hangover franchise, such as Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper, are likely to be involved.

Zach Galifianakis is making a movie version of his popular talk show Between Two Ferns.

The comedy star kicked off the Funny or Die online video series by interviewing actor Michael Cera in 2008, before going on to have celebrity guests such as Natalie Portman, Steve Carell, Bruce Willis, Jon Hamm, Charlize Theron, Ben Stiller, and Justin Bieber.

Now, it seems Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis is to get the big screen treatment, with editors at The Hollywood Reporter reporting that production is already underway on a film version of the programme, having been greenlit by executives at Netflix.

Scott Aukerman, who has directed a number of episodes of the low-budget talk show, will helm the movie. However, it is not yet known whether the feature will follow the same format as the original, in which Galifianakis chats with stars while sitting between two potted ferns.

He often trades barbs and insults with his A-list guests for the duration of the interview, and in keeping with the amateur aesthetic of the show, on-screen graphics often contain deliberate comedic errors.

Apart from Galifianakis, no other casting details have been shared. However, The Hollywood Reporter’s article indicated that the likes of Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, TV host David Letterman, and actor Keanu Reeves may appear. In addition, the 49-year-old’s co-stars from The Hangover franchise, such as Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper, are likely to be involved.

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis has aired sporadically on Funny or Die in recent years, with some of the most popular episodes involving former U.S. President Barack Obama and Brad Pitt. The 2016 episode with then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the first new show in two years, received 30 million views in its first 24 hours, and became one of the top videos in the website’s history. The last Between Two Ferns show, which starred Jerry Seinfeld, Wayne Knight, and Cardi B, aired in June (18).
