Tiffany Haddish Says This Is Who Bit Beyoncé

Haddish had originally recalled the biting incident by an actress who was "doing the mostest" in a March interview with GQ.

In a freewheeling interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the comedienne admitted she approached the Oscar-winning actor a few months ago with a bold proposition. So she says, 'Hi, Roseanne, ' and Roseanne goes, 'Hey!' I thought, 'Maybe she got to know us.' Then I go back, like, a week later, I wave again and say, 'Hi, Roseanne! She's not one to mince words or waste time gazing longingly at a romantic interest from across the party, instead she's going to charm the trousers off any and everyone in her path.

The 38-year-old actress-comedian covers The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, and in the accompanying interview, shares her run-in with Leonardo DiCaprio.

"I feel like that performance deserves a real reward and that reward is this [gesturing to her body]", Haddish explained.

Haddish said that they met at a party and told him she had one request - for DiCaprio to be in his "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" character.

At the time, some were pointing fingers at Sanaa Lathan, but she denied it, tweeting, "Y'all are amusing. I coulda just shut my whole career down".

"The other day, someone was saying, like, 'Oh my God, you should keep your mouth shut 'cause now you're never gonna be invited to parties, '" she said. It's so freaky. I thought it was the funniest thing ever that it was a news story. "But I got invited to way more parties after that!"

Well, if you're talking about Beyoncé... yes, you will get attention! I say, 'Hiiii, Roseanne.' She looks at me (makes a disgusted face), and ran in the house.

"A week later, we walk by again, and I told Anna - she's Hispanic, but she looks white - she should say hi this time. So she says, 'Hi, Roseanne, ' and Roseanne goes, 'Hey!' I thought, 'Maybe she got to know us'". I'm back from the dead. "I love your comedy, ' and she (Haddish makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head", she said. "This is "The Last O.G.' If you gon" ask about Tiffany, ask that about Cedric [the Entertainer], ask that about craft services, everybody that comes to work on that show".
