In an interview with Cosmopolitan, the comedian and actress opened up about her humble days at work and her crippling fear of being homeless. She also shared her ambition to create a means for future generations by buying land and houses. The goal became achievable after Haddish started “earning some money” working on projects such as Tyler Perry If loving you is wrong and The Carmichael Show.
“So as soon as I started making some money doing things like Tyler Perry If loving you is wrong and The Carmichael ShowI started trying to figure out how to build generational wealth,” Haddish told the magazine.
“The fastest way to do it and the first way to do it is to buy land.”
Laser-focused on the prize, Haddish made an ambitious decision despite the pushback from others.
“I just knew that I was always going to have to make enough money to take care of myself and the house, and that’s what I did,” she continued.
She continued, “So before we even get into season two of The Carmichael Show, I bought a house. Between next season of this show, the Keanu movie, and making sure I could live comfortably on $500 a month, I was able to afford half the house.
The blessings didn’t stop there. Haddish not only won hearts with her comedy, but also won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Supporting Actress in the 2017 hit film. Girls trip. According to Variety, the actress and comedian used her $80,000 paycheck to finish paying for the house.
“The Girls trip the check was the final check,” Haddish told Cosmopolitan.
“People told me to spend it otherwise, but I used it to pay for the house because I was always afraid of being homeless again. Now I have extra money, but I I’m always afraid of being poor again. Every movie I made, I just bought another piece of land or a house.
