Tiffany Haddish, who stars in the new comedy “Girls Trip,” isn’t shying away from Bill Cosby despite the dozens of sexual assault allegations surrounding him.

“I still want to work with Bill Cosby,” the 37-year-old actress told the Los Angeles Times in a recent interview.

Haddish plays a “hot-headed, foul-mouthed” woman who “will say whatever she wants,” in her new comedy, and that’s exactly what she did while talking about one of her inspirations.

“I don’t care, I’ll drink the juice,” she continued. “I’ll drink the juice. I’ll take a nap. I don’t give a damn. But seriously, I would love for him to play my grandfather in something.”

Cosby went to trial over his sexual assault allegations last month, but the case ended in a mistrial after the jury couldn’t come to a consensus. The “Cosby Show” star is facing a re-trial in November and also faces another 10 lawsuits from other women alleging that he sexually assaulted them as well.
