Tiffany Haddish Loves the Gays

Tiffany Haddish Loves the Gays


Out chats with The Card Counter star about working with Oscar Isaac, flexing her drama acting muscles, and her love for her LGBTQ+ fans! 

In case you needed confirmation, Tiffany Haddish absolutely loves the gays.

While promoting her role as the mysterious poker manager La Linda in famed writer-director Paul Schrader's latest crime drama The Card Counter, Out got the chance to speak to the hilarious actress, as well as her co-star Tye Sheridan, about working on the film alongside the internet's beloved boyfriend and noted snack Oscar Isaac, getting to trade in her comedy crown for a more dramatic role, and of course, her love for her LGBTQ+ fans.

"Tiffany loves the gays, okay," she told Out. "You know, I love to say this, people laugh at me when I say it, but I know I'm telling the truth. In my past life, I was a gay man."

"It was really cool working with him," Haddish then said about working with The Card Counter's lead star Oscar Isaac, who she described as not just a snack, but a whole entree. (We agree wholeheartedly.) "I learned so much about quietness. About how you can say something and be very still and convey everything you need to convey. I'm so used to being, like, ya-ta-ta and but you don't have to do all that to get your point across, to bring some joy into something or anger or whatever. You can be really still. That was a really great lesson to learn and to learn from him is an honor."

The Card Counter hits theaters on Friday, September 10.
