American actor Tiffany Haddish shared her adoration for the LGBT+ community, declaring she absolutely “loves the gays”.

Haddish spoke openly about her devotion to her queer fans in a recent interview with Out about her movie The Card Counter. The interview began with the radiant actor being told that the “gays love Tiffany Haddish”. To which she responded: “Tiffany loves the gays”.

“You know I love to say this. People laugh at me when I say it, but I know I’m telling the truth,” Haddish told Out. “In my past life, I was a gay man.”

She explained that she talked to God during her past life as a gay man and asked if she could be brought back as a “beautiful woman” that can “get all the d**k the dick that she wants”.

The comedian said God agreed but advised she would have some “ups and downs”.

“I said ‘Cool, God, as long as I can do what I want,” she said. “Then, he sent me back, and then I like get in this body, and I’m like ‘so I’m a gay man trapped inside of a Black woman’s body’.”

The interviewer declared amidst rampant giggling that Tiffany Haddish’s previous life must be part of the reason why the “gays love you so much”.

The Emmy Award-winning actor shared in a separate interview with Out last year that she loves to visit gay bars because it’s always been a “wonderful experience” for her.

“That’s the one place where every man wants to buy me a drink and wants to tell me about some s**t,” Haddish said. “‘B***h let me tell you’, and I’m like yes tell me! But I need a vodka first.”

The Like A Boss star said she would soon be involved in a “great time” with the LGBT+ people at the gay bar, just “drinking” and “laughing”.

Tiffany Haddish’s new movie The Card Counter debuted in the US on Friday (10 September). She played La Linda, a gambling agent who gets entangled with a mysterious card shark named William Tell (Oscar Isaac).
