The first-time presenter also tells THR that she's ready to finally meet Meryl Streep.

Tiffany Haddish insists she's not nervous about presenting for the first time on Sunday at the Oscars.

"I'm more excited than anything," the Girls Trip star told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday night at Common's Toast to the Arts party. "It's like kissing a boy for the first time."

Haddish said she still had not decided on what she was going to wear. "I'm debating between two dresses," she said. "I guess I'm going to have to go with how my uterus is feeling. If I look bloated, I know which one I'll go with, but if my stomach looks flat, I'll go with the other one."

She may finally get to meet and pitch to Meryl Streep, who is up for an Oscar for her work as Katherine Graham in The Post. "I want her to play my mama in Girls Trip 2," she said. "Dina goes to Africa and finds out Meryl is her mom — and she's more turned-up than Dina. Dina's mother is off the chain!"

In the meantime, Haddish has a first-look deal with HBO. "I'm excited by the content I'm bringing them," she said.

And that content isn't necessarily limited to comedy. In fact, it was recently announced that Haddish will co-star with fellow funny lady Melissa McCarthy in The Kitchen, a mob drama helmed by first-time director Andrea Berloff, who also wrote the screenplay based on the 2014 comic book series. "I could do drama," Haddish said. "I paid for acting classes for a long time. I know how to die real good."
