Styled by soon-to-be (if not already) legendary stylist Law Roach, the newly crowned “queen of comedy” serves ethereal floral vibes in gowns and separates from Giambattista Valli and Valentino coordinated with colorful backgrounds. She funks up the couture spread with her own bamboo earrings, bright yellow Hunter rain boots, windswept waves accented with crosshatched hair pins and, of course, crowns and tiaras.
Inside, the actress keeps it all the way real — between vodka shots in a first-class flight from San Francisco to NYC — about everything from her infamous celebrity encounters and who bit Beyoncé to how Roseanne has always been racist and the best acting advice from the late Richard Pryor.
On her personal experience with Roseanne:
“I don’t know if you know El Segundo [a coastal California town near LAX], but if you’re black and you’re driving through El Segundo, you’re going to get pulled over…. One day, we were walking around the neighborhood, and Anna says, ‘Oh, Roseanne lives there.’ Now, I loved Roseanne, and the next day we walked by, and she was in her yard. I say, ‘Hiiii, Roseanne.’ She looks at me (makes a disgusted face), and ran in the house. I thought, ‘Maybe she don’t want to be bothered today.’ 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.’ Then I go back, like, a week later, I wave again and say, ‘Hi, Roseanne! I love your comedy,’ and she (makes the same disgusted face) and turns her head. I think, ‘Fuck that bitch.’ That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it’s not new. She been racist, why’d you all give her a TV show?”
When nudged about whether Sanaa Lathan bit Bey, Tiffany still did not confirm the tea. Instead, she smiled:
“I’m super good friends with her stepmom and her dad [Stan, a producer-director], and they were mad at me,” she reveals. “They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyonce kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.”
As for money moves, she wants to make 50 movies before she turns 50. She’s getting a good start with Girls Trip 2 in the works along with projects with Judd Apatow and Netflix. She also wants to be way richer.
“I want to get $10 million a movie,” she told the glossy. “$100 million, eventually.”
