Popular actress and stand-up comedian, Tiffany Haddish has revealed she once offered to have sex with Leonardo DiCaprio only for him to turn her down.
The 38 year old actress who is never shy from speaking about encounters with other celebrities told The Hollywood Reporter about her encounter with Leo DiCaprio. She said;
“I asked him if he’d let me hit that. He’s like, ‘Tiffany, you’re so funny.’ I’m like, ‘I’m serious.’ And then he goes, ‘I mean, I’d do it, but…’ I was like, ‘Come on, wasn’t you in a squad? The coochie squad or something?'”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, what the “coochie squad” Haddish was referring to is the notorious “pussy posse” DiCaprio and actors Tobey Maguire and Kevin Connolly were part of.
She then revealed she had a very specific request for the Titanic actor.
“I told him, ‘My only stipulation: I wanna do it with you as your character in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape,’ ” the comedian continued. “He starts bustin’ up laughin’, ‘Why?’ he asks, and I say, ‘ ‘Cause I feel like that performance deserves a real reward and that reward is this [gestures at her own body].’ ”
In the film, DiCaprio plays 17-year-old Arnie Grape, who is severely autistic.
According to Haddish, DiCaprio then began recounting his experiences working on the 1993 drama in which he starred opposite Johnny Depp.
“He starts goin’ into how he got into the role, how he worked with these kids and all this stuff, and I’m just listenin’ and listenin’, like, ‘Mmm-hmm, mmm-hmm.’ I finally go, ‘All that’s good, I just need to know: When’s this gonna happen?’ ” Haddish explained.
At this time, Leo DiCaprio excused himself and avoided her through out the event!
