Tyler Perry is proving that he is the boss we wish we all had after gifting Tiffany Haddish a car following their work in an upcoming movie.

The hilarious comedian is starring in Perry’s upcoming flick Nobody’s Fool, and the media mogul decided to reward her with a blue Tesla Model X. Haddish shared a video that Perry made to accompany the gift on her Instagram.

“When I tell you I cried so hard. I almost couldn’t believe it,” Haddish says in the caption of the video. “This was just out the kindness of his heart and probably tired of me talking about it all the time and I didn’t have to do anything for it but a great job in our new movie Nobody’s Fool. Thank God for kind people that want to spread happiness.”

Haddish also explained that a man has never bought her a car and that she has always had to make car payments. But in his video, Perry tells Haddish that it was time for her to overcome her fears of spending money, and that she should finally start to enjoy the benefits of her labor. 

“I know it’s hard for you, it feels like you’re just coming into [money], but your career is taking off, you’re going to be around a really, really long time,” he said. “I know you’ve been talking about [getting a new car] for a long time, I was trying to talk you into going and get it, I tried talking you into calling the dealership, have them bring the car to you — you were like, ‘I don’t have time, I don’t have time’ — but I know what the real deal is: The real deal is, you gotta be okay with spending a little bit of money. So I wanted to gift this to you and say you deserve it and I’m excited for you.”
