Common and Tiffany Haddish are happy.
"She's a really incredible human being, and, you know, the more I get to know her, I just see how dynamic she is as a person. How intelligent, how selfless she is, how she stands up in Hollywood for Black women," Common raved about his girlfriend.
"I'm learning [from her]. You know what I mean?" he continued. "She takes it like the law ... She'll be like, 'If there ain't no Black people on the set, or no Black people working on this, then I'm not going to do it.' Or, 'Why can't we go to these Black makeup artists?' And I think, it takes that type of courage and mouthpiece and rawness to get the equanimity that we've been looking for — the equality that we talk about. Especially within — any area of life — but then the Hollywood structure, sometimes you have to shake them up and say, 'Hey, y'all, this is what it has to be.' "
Common and Haddish "just became friends," until one night their friendship went somewhere else."
Haddish first confirmed she and Common were dating in July.
