    Tiffany Haddish insists on "the guy fee" for her movies

    The 'Girls Trip' star always "does the research" when considering a job and thinks a lot of the time women are too afraid to ask for a higher fee as they're unsure about how much they could be making


    She said:"You know what they say? A close mouth don't get fed, and a lot of times we don't open our mouths because we don't even really know what we're supposed to get.

    "So, that's why I do the research. I ask around. I've made friends with line producers that cut those cheques, production managers, so I can be like, 'So, on average, how much does a girl get paid for? How much does a guy get paid?' OK, I'm gonna ask for the guy fee on this one."

    The 38-year-old star believes there needs to be more discussion between actors and actresses about salaries and "perks" - and joked she put weight on after Kate Hudson showed her she could request certain food in her dressing room.

    She told Variety: "I think the reason why, a lot of times, we don't get paid the same as men do is because we don't talk about it.

    "I think we do need to talk about it because I sure get in there and I'm like, 'Hey, Kate Hudson. How much do they pay you for that? What kind of perks do you get for that?'

    "I didn't know they could fill your room up with whatever kind of food you want.

    "That's why I done gained so much weight, because she told me about all the food you can get. I'm like, you can bring me some tacos and I want an In-N-Out burger."

    Tiffany's work ethic and desire for fair and equal pay stems from being "homeless and hungry" in her youth.

    She said: "When you get tired of washing your ass in the sink, you will be like, 'You know what, I'm going to make sure this never happens again.' I see my grandma work all the time, my aunties, all the people that's ever been around me in my life, they work their asses off.

    "I figured out the method to the madness is know your worth, don't settle for less. If you've got to be hungry, oh well -- somebody will come along that pays you what you worth.(sic)"
