“The Kitchen” star told host Stephen Colbert that singer John Mayer recently gave her “actual” advice on getting the attention of celebrities you want to go out with:

And that is to say in interviews you’re seeing that person so news outlets will run side-by-side photos of you and your desired date. That will get the attention of the guy and perhaps generate a meeting. “The world will know that I like this person, I will know that I like this person, and it will be in his subconscious and he will attract me to him,” Haddish explained.

It turns out Haddish has a crush on a certain New York Yankees star, so Colbert helped her cause by showing side-by-side photos of the two. Way to get the ball rolling, Stephen.
