Tiffany Haddish says water feels like “kisses from God” since she shaved her head.

The Girls Trip actress recently cut off her hair for a movie role and has been showing off her new look on social media.

Although the haircut raised eyebrows at first, Tiffany has no regrets and has even discovered a new love for showers and rain in recent weeks.

“Just Loving my new look thought I’d share it with y’all,” the star told her 6.1 million followers on her Instagram account, as she posted a photo of herself beaming while she rocked the new ‘do.

“The best part is when water hits my head it feels like kisses from God. #sheready for more of Gods Love!”

Tiffany’s shaved head shot attracted a host of compliments, from both fans and fellow celebs.

“She don’t need no hair, she is gorgeously gorgeous!” Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland gushed, as she added a red heart emoji to her message. “Let ‘em know!” actress Yvette Nicole Brown added in support of the posting.

“You look beautiful Tiff!!!” stand up comedian Ali Wong wrote in the comments section, adding three red heart emojis to underline her approval.

Tiffany initially sparked concern when she used scissors and clippers to remove her hair during an Instagram Live earlier this month. The 40-year-old star later revealed she underwent the style transformation for a role in an unnamed film.

Tiffany Haddish shaved her head so she could wear wigs for her upcoming movie role.

Earlier this month, the Girls Trip star sparked concern when she took scissors and clippers to her hair during an Instagram Live, and told fans that she was relieved to finally be able to feel her scalp.

However, Haddish has since revealed that she underwent the dramatic hair transformation to prepare for an upcoming role in an undisclosed film.

“I actually have this movie that I am working on and my character has to wear wigs. So it would be easier if I don’t have any hair on my head. The wig will fit better,” she explained during Dave Chappelle’s socially distanced comedy gig in Ohio, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

Haddish had been sporting braids for the last two months, and smiled in the 26-minute long Instagram Live video, which she saved to her grid, as she fired back at followers who alleged she was having a nervous breakdown.

“Why, when a woman decides, ‘Hey, I’m going to cut this hair off, because I want to see my scalp,’ she gotta have a mental problem?” the Like a Boss star said. “Nothing is wrong with my brain, guys. I’m not suffering from no emotional s**t, nothing. I’ve literally been talking about this for years, how I want to see my scalp. I know every single piece of my body… I’ve been talking about this for a long time.”

Haddish also said she wanted to cut down on the amount of time she had to dedicate to styling her textured hair.

“Even if your hair is braided, you gotta grease your scalp, you gotta tie ’em up at night, you gotta make sure they look neat, it’s a lot of work. So, I’m taking time off!” she laughed.

Tiffany Haddish debuted a stunning hair transformation as she shaved her head on Instagram Live.

The Girls Trip star insisted she wasn’t suffering from any mental health problems as she took scissors and clippers to her long braids, after claiming she had wanted to do it for weeks.

“Cut my hair!” Haddish captioned a video of her live session on Instagram. “I cut all my hair off cause I want to see my scalp. I know my whole body I know where every mole is but I don’t know my Scalp. So hello scalp #SheReady to everything.”

Haddish, who had been sporting braids for the last two months, smiled in the video as she begins cutting her hair off in chunks.

“Why, when a woman decides, ‘Hey, I’m going to cut this hair off, because I want to see my scalp,’ she gotta have a mental problem?” the Like a Boss star said in a follow-up video on Instagram. “Nothing is wrong with my brain, guys. I’m not suffering from no emotional s**t, nothing. I’ve literally been talking about this for years, how I want to see my scalp. I know every single piece of my body… I’ve been talking about this for a long time.”

The 40-year-old said she was now free to focus on her other projects, including her fight for racial equality.

“I’m gonna use that same energy that I would’ve been putting into my hair into my mind,” Haddish shared. “It’s just going to give me more time to work on my body, get everything together.”

She concluded her final video with a message to those who had accused her of losing her mind for shaving her head.

“I have not. If anything I’ve gained so much mind, so much peace. And I still look better than you, b**ch,” she quipped.

Tiffany Haddish turned down role in Top Five

Tiffany Haddish turned down a role in Chris Rock’s 2014 movie Top Five because it went against her morals.

The actress, who rose to fame with 2017’s Girls Trip, has revealed she declined a role in a threesome scene in the comedy, which was written and directed by Rock, because it felt disrespectful and went against her standards.

“I remember that movie that Chris Rock did and it’s like he meets the two girls and they have a threesome and then Cedric (the Entertainer) gets in there and he’s supposed to ‘blah’ all over their faces…” she recalled to The Hollywood Reporter. “It was like, ‘Tiffany, they’re offering you the role.’ And I was like, ‘I don’t want that role. I’m a stand-up comedian and I don’t let people do that in my face in real life, so why would I do it in this movie?’ Like, you ought to have a little bit of respect for me, period. God made this face for a reason, and you’re not going to disrespect it.

“I feel like sometimes my representation tries to get me to go outside my lane, and if it is against my morals — and I do have some, I know I’m a little wild, but I do have standards — then somebody might get fired. It’s like, I’m a company, I’m a brand, and if you try to go against the policy of the company, you might not need to be working here anymore.”

The 40-year-old continued to explain that she mostly just stars in projects she’s producing via her She Ready production banner as she’s rarely inspired by the offers that come her way.

“The mama who’s been through something, whose kid ends up being hurt in some way and fighting for justice. And the baby’s sick or I’m trying to get out of jail,” she said, recalling the offers. “Like, no, I’m not doing that. I know people who live that, I’m not doing it. Unless it’s super, super good. The writing has to be impeccable. A lot of times it’s telling these stories that could be powerful, but the writing (is usually) garbage.”

Paul Schrader calls new Covid-19 production restrictions ‘onerous’

Paul Schrader wouldn’t want to make a completely new film with the “onerous” safety protocols that have been implemented as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The First Reformed director, who is best known for writing Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull and Taxi Driver, was five days away from completing production on The Card Counter, starring Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, and Willem Dafoe, when an extra in a large crowd scene tested positive for Covid-19 and the set was shut down.

Schrader revealed on Thursday during a virtual discussion between himself, Isaac and a journalist for Deadline that they were cleared to resume filming in Mississippi on 6 July and he is glad he only has to complete five more days under the new safety guidelines.

“We’ve all read the protocols. They are onerous, to say the least,” he stated. “I would not want to start a film from scratch under those conditions, but five days, knowing exactly what you need, exactly what you want, you can work your way through that, or rather limp your way through it, which is what we’ll do. It’ll end up seeming like a kind of adventure, whereas for another production starting from scratch, it would seem like a nightmare.”

Schrader noted that they had already completed scenes involving large crowds and intimacy and he hasn’t had to rewrite any scenes to adjust to the new working conditions, although he made some tweaks to the remaining dialogue scenes after assembling a “90 per cent cut” of the film.

Isaac, who will go on to film the Dune reshoots in August, admitted it’s “really hard to imagine” what filming will be like under the new protocols.

The filmmaker made headlines in March when he expressed his outrage at being forced to stop filming in a Facebook post.

“Production halted five days before wrap by my pussified producers because an LA day player had the coronavirus,” he wrote. “Myself, I would have shot through hellfire rain to complete the film. I’m old and asthmatic, what better way to die than on the job?”

Tiffany Haddish holds virtual meeting to kickstart Girls Trip sequel

Tiffany Haddish isn’t letting social distancing halt work on a Girls Trip sequel.

The actress, who found fame with her breakthrough role in the 2017 movie, revealed in a new interview with The Huffington Post that she recently had a group video call on Zoom with her co-stars Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Accordingly, the conversation quickly turned to a sequel and why production hasn’t started yet, despite them all publicly declaring their interest in making a follow-up.

Haddish then explained that the project hasn’t been greenlit by executives at Universal Pictures because they are waiting for a script, and shared that Tracy Oliver, who co-wrote the original with Kenya Barris, has a treatment ready to go.

“Then it was like, ‘Oh, you guys want too much money,'” the 40-year-old added.

During their group call, Haddish and her co-stars decided to forge ahead on their own and have planned to meet on Zoom on Friday to start writing the script together.

“We might decide not to even make it Girls Trip… Maybe we’ll do a different story just in case no one wants to make Girls Trip 2,” she commented.

The original movie followed lifestyle guru Ryan Pierce, played by Hall, as she travelled to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans to serve as a keynote speaker with her friends in tow.

Elsewhere in the chat, Haddish also opened up about life in quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I have a garden. I’ve got plenty of food in the freezer. I got Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime; I’ve got cable. I have a room that I’ve got to clean out. I have so many bills that are a year old that I just paid online,” she joked.

Paul Schrader has blasted producers for shutting down filming on The Card Counter after an actor was diagnosed with coronavirus.

The director, who wrote Martin Scorsese’s films Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, took to Facebook to complain about the situation, and revealed that production had been stopped five days before it was due to finish “because an LA day player had the coronavirus”.

“Myself, I would have shot through hellfire rain to complete the film. I’m old and asthmatic, what better way to die than on the job?” he wrote in a brief post on the social media site.

And when asked by one follower about the safety of the cast and crew on the set of the film in Biloxi, Mississippi, Schrader simply replied: “It’s a good death.”

The crime drama is being produced by LB Entertainment, in association with HanWay Films, and distributed by Front Row Filmed Entertainment.

In addition to directing, the 73-year-old wrote the script for The Card Counter, which stars Oscar Isaac as a professional gambler called William Tell, who takes a young man, played by Tye Sheridan, under his wing to help him get revenge against a mutual enemy on the casino circuit.

Willem Dafoe and Tiffany Haddish are also starring in the movie, and it’s understood that the actor who tested positive is not one of the main cast members.

Schrader’s film is not the only Hollywood production to be affected by the Covid-19 outbreak. Production on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley movie was halted after its star Tom Hanks, as well as his wife Rita Wilson, contracted the virus, while filming on Marvel movie, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, was postponed as director Destin Daniel Cretton tested for it, although his results came back negative.

Tiffany Haddish is a fan of making her own sweet and salty snack combinations.

The Like a Boss actress has opened up about all of her favourite foods in a video for the Harper’s Bazaar YouTube channel, noting she will often have leftovers for breakfast and munch on apples, oranges, nectarines, dried apricots, and almonds in-between meals.

But on occasion, Tiffany also likes to mix up her own treats using pickles and whatever candies she has to hand.

“I love a good dill pickle, the big ones that they sell in the big jar. You get those, and you bite the top off, and then you put in a Now and Later, or a Jolly Rancher, or a peppermint in the middle,” she explained. “Wow! When I tell you, delicious flavours to savour! So damn good.”

Another mix Tiffany discovered as a child and still occasionally likes to do involves dipping a pickle in Kool-Aid powder.

“Now, it sounds like diabetes but I tell you, it feels like success,” the 40-year-old insisted.

Elsewhere in the chat, Tiffany also shared her hack for making the ultimate nacho dish.

Armed with two bags of chips, the star will then make a visit to a “ghetto” ice cream truck.

“You get a bag of Doritos and you buy a bag of Fritos, you mix those two chips together. Then you tell them to put two scoops of chilli inside that bag with cheese on top and jalapenos! Mmmm, that’s the good life!” she exclaimed.

Tiffany Haddish invited Rose Byrne for drinks so they could establish a friendship like their characters in Like a Boss.

In the new comedy, Haddish and Byrne play Mia and Mel, who have been best friends for two decades and are co-founders of a beauty brand.

When the Girls Trip star got the Like a Boss script and learned she might be playing the Australian actress’s best friend, she decided to reach out and invite her for drinks so she could see if they had the chemistry required to convincingly play longtime pals.

“We hung out for four hours,” the comedienne told InStyle magazine. “We’re sitting, we’re drinking, we’re eating, we’re laughing. Having so much fun. We just instantly connected. I was like, ‘Girl, I think we should walk down the street and see a psychic to see if we were sisters or cousins in a past life.’”

But the Bridesmaids actress admitted she was nervous to meet Haddish because she feared they might not get on as well as they needed to.

“I was so nervous,” she shared. “The most important part of the movie is that we’re besties and have that connection. And we’re so different — but we figured out that we have so many things in common. We’re exactly 5 feet 6 and a half, have really small ears, were born in 1979…”

Mel and Mia’s friendship is tested when Claire Luna, played by Salma Hayek, invests in their small company, and the Mexican actress couldn’t help but gush about her co-stars.

“The three of us were very different from each other, and that makes for a richer experience,” she said. “I just fell in love with them.”

Tiffany Haddish never had acne until she started making movies

Tiffany Haddish only began to suffer from acne after her movie career took off.

The 40-year-old actress made her breakthrough in movies with her scene-stealing role in 2017’s Girls Trip, and has been working non-stop ever since, with appearances in films such as Night School, Nobody’s Fool, Like a Boss, and The Kitchen.

Although she is enjoying her successful career, Tiffany has now admitted to Allure that her skin has paid the price for her busy work schedule and the heavy make-up she is required to wear on set.

“Before I was famous, my beauty regimen was: Wash your a*s, wash your face, moisturise,” she shared. “It was simple because I didn’t wear make-up every day. Now I’m shooting movies and TV shows, constantly putting make-up on my face, constantly being outside. Oh, my gosh, I break out so bad. I’d never had acne until I started doing a lot of movies.

“You’ve got to have the right stuff to dig that make-up out of your pores. I use that Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil. After filming Girls Trip – they put that heavy make-up on you and you’ve been sweating all day in that New Orleans weather – I was breaking out for a whole year.”

Tiffany’s skin started to improve once she invested in the Clarisonic Mia Prima Facial Cleansing Skincare Device, which uses sonic technology to brush and deeply cleanse the skin.

When she’s filming, the comedienne uses the Tatcha cleanser and makes sure she puts coconut oil “all over my face” before she goes to bed, while she also likes to whip up a mask made from Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and apple cider vinegar and apply the mixture once a week.
