The entertainment industry can be a scary thing. Celebrities often share their success story, including the road it took to get there. Tiffany Haddish is no different; the comedian opens up about secretly recording what people said about her after an audition.  During a Hollywood Reporter roundtable discussion, the Night School actor amongst other actresses shared her secret on hearing casting call criticism.

She shared, “I would put my phone on voice memo, put it in my bag, do the audition, walk out the room, leave my bag, come back and be like, ‘Oh, I forgot my purse in there.’ “

Some of the criticism she would hear is, “ ‘She is not as urban as I thought she’d be,’ ” the actress recalled hearing. “Or ‘She’s so ghetto, I just can’t.’  ‘Her boobs aren’t big enough.’  ‘I really think we should just go with a white girl. This role should be changed to white.’  ”

When one of the women asked how often Haddish would record these auditions, she replied “A lot. A lot. It was like my M.O.”

Although Haddish revealed that hearing that feedback would hurt her feelings, it was also constructive and helped her learning process, “I want to hear so that I can grow,” she said. “And also so that I can write jokes about it and I can use it to my advantage. Like all this, ‘Jeez, she can’t read. Jeez, if she just could read it would work. She said every word wrong.’ And I’m like, ‘They’re right.’ So, I start reading out loud more and practicing. And it helps me in the long run.”
