The Girls Trip star was in the middle of telling Ellen Degeneres about the time she met Oprah as an extra on the set of Their Eyes Were Watching God.
“She had walked by and I was making all the other extras laugh… She said, ‘You’re a very funny young lady.’ I was like [eeeee!] and she said, ‘What’s your name?’ I said, ‘My name is Tiffany Haddish, and I’m a stand-up comedian,’” Haddish recalled. “She said, ‘Well, keep me updated on your career, write me, let me know what you got going on. I love comedy.’ I said, ‘Oh yeah, I know, I know.’ And so, I would write her, right? She never wrote back.”Without missing a beat, Degeneres responded, “Let’s ask her why she didn’t write back. Oprah, why didn’t you write back?” before Oprah hit the stage.
