Haddish told Fallon she met Pitt in an elevator at a pre-Oscar party while also standing inside with Elizabeth Perkins and her husband. The group had attended the Gersh Agency’s bash.
“I was talking to Elizabeth Perkins and her husband was in the elevator and I liked the way he was looking at her and I was like, ‘I hope one day I get me a husband like that, I hope one day a man look at me that way and love me that much,'” she said. “And then Brad Pitt was standing right next to me and then Elizabeth’s husband was like, ‘Man, I hope we don’t get caught in this elevator’ and I was like, ‘It’s gonna be some pretty-ass babies in this elevator if we do.'”
“And then Brad Pitt said, ‘Yeah, get ready’—which I thought was a joke—he said, ‘Well, if I’m single in a year, and you’re single in a year, maybe we could get together and see what happens,'” Haddish said. “And I was like, ‘Oh my God! For real? Whoo! I’ma hold you to that!’ And then I did some research. He got a gang of kids. I can’t do it. I can’t do it. I want to be baby mama number one.”
