Tiffany Haddish was stopped by an ET reporter at the Vanity Fair Oscar After-Party who asked the star—who was now in a dazzling light green gown after stepping out at the Oscars in a dark green patterned dress—if she "did a little costume change."
"Um," Haddish began, looking slightly taken aback. "I'm not wearing a costume, I'm wearing Dolce & Gabbana. It's called an evening gown, darling. No one's paying me for this, I paid for it. It's custom, thank you." Meanwhile the reporter bent over in embarrassment and replied, "Time of death for me: right now."
She told Haddish she looked gorgeous and the comedian replied, "This is not an acting gig. This is my life. This is what fame looks like. This is what success looks like. This is what money looks like. This is what it looks like. This is what it looks like," she repeated while staring into the reporter's face. The two carried on with some awkward conversation about Haddish's forthcoming essay collection, and Haddish pointed out that the reporter was not wearing any shoes, after which they laughed a little about the weather and quickly wrapped up the cringey encounter.
The first rule in interviewing a celebrity is having your facts straight, and the second is having at least some degree of etiquette. Here is a gallery full of interviewers who apparently weren't informed of the rules, and the stars that gloriously fired back at them for it.
