Tiffany Haddish Reveals Romantic Birthday Plans with Common, Plus: How She’s Fighting Hunger Issues
Tiffany Haddish is always one of Hollywood’s most candid stars, and despite the crazy year we’ve had, she has found her happy with boyfriend Common. Haddish opened up to “Extra’s” Nate Burleson about their relationship, revealing, “I call him Rashid.”
The comedian dished on their romantic plans to celebrate her birthday, and also shared details about her 40-lb. weight loss during quarantine, the presidential election, and working with Vitafusion on the WhyHunger campaign.
Haddish turns 41 on Dec. 3, and revealed, “I’m just hoping me and my man, we going hot air ballooning and have us a nice little meal. That’s what I would like to do,” she said.
“Every birthday, I try to do something I’ve never done before,” she added. “I feel like it’s an exciting way to live life. On my 39th birthday, I got drunk with my grandma, never done that before… And my 40th birthday, I had a bat mitzvah and that was super fun. This birthday, 41, I want to go up in a hot air balloon.”
She’s also living healthy amid the pandemic, saying, “I lost 40 pounds. I’ve been working out and eating right and getting my little life together… I’m not gonna lie to you, my knees were hurting a lot in 2019. I was carrying a lot of things around, a lot of weight, unnecessary weight, unnecessary hurt. I had to let all that go — a lot of mental things — let that go.”
The comedian recently celebrated her People’s Choice Award for “Like a Boss,” saying, “It’s one thing when Hollywood says something, but it’s a whole other thing when the people say it.”
Sharing that she also celebrated Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ election win, she said, “I danced in the window, yes, I did… Yeah, y’all, we did that! Ahhh, and I did it with my man — we watched together.”
She said isn’t sure about their Thanksgiving plans yet, explaining, “I like to serve food to the disadvantaged. That’s part of why I got with Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins and WhyHunger, because I’ve been there. I’ve been homeless and hungry.”
Vitafusion and WhyHunger have teamed up to tackle the root causes of hunger, and Haddish is lending her voice to their effort. “I am at a point where I’m like, ‘What can I do as a person to make things better?’… And if anybody is listening to this or watching this right now and is wondering, ‘What can I do?’ You can go to WhyHunger.org/vitafusion and there are a whole slew of things you can do to contribute to help fight this hunger issue.”
