Tammy

Posted: Updated:

If you're having a bad time, cheer up or check out how Melissa McCarthy does it in her new comedy "Tammy." The cast told us about their ways to make a bad day better.

"Tammy" is a movie about choices, like making the choice to go on a road trip with your crazy grandma and ending up having to rob a fast food store.

Disclaimer: Don't rob anyone, no matter how bad of a day you're having.

Gary Cole: "No, I've tried that. It does relieve stress, you know, but you know, I escape without any law enforcement intervention, so..."

He's joking, we're sure. Here are some other things not to do.

Mark Duplass: "The don't list is a movie called 'Tammy.' You just watch the movie and transcribe the film."

Gary Cole: "Do the opposite."

Mark Duplass: "That's your don't list."

Easy enough, and if you are having a bad day kinda like Tammy does in the movie, just chill.

Kathy Bates: "Well, that's a lifelong problem I've had. I just try to let it go. I just try to say, 'Is this really important in the scheme of things?' If it's not life or death, if I'm not having to dive into a shark tank to rescue my child, then chill, you know?"

Melissa McCarthy: "If I'm having a really bad day, I just try to get home as soon as I can and huddle up, let my kids do weird things for me and just talk to Ben. I try to go back to center and block it all out. And usually, two minutes in the backyard with my kids and Ben, and then I'm like, 'It's not so bad.'"

Did we mention these two are married? They know all about each other's weird bad day habits.

Ben Falcone: "According to Melissa, it's one of the crazy things I do is that, if things start to seem weird, I start to go slower."

Melissa McCarthy: "Yes. It is a really weird thing he does. I can't believe he said that cause I always tell him that and he goes, 'I don't do that. Ohhh, that's interesting.'"

Ben Falcone: "Her solution would be like, move faster, get out of there, do something. I'm just like, 'Let's all just take a big breath, chill out. We'll figure it out.'"

Melissa McCarthy: "Yeah, when it gets really stressful, even if it's like, we're not late a lot, but something, anything which literally, physically requires you to move faster, he will all of a sudden start going like, just getting into the car. And I'm spazzier, so I'm like, 'Why are you moving slow? You're literally moving slower.' And he goes, 'I'm not moving slower.'"

Ben Falcone: "My solution is to get super calm, almost to a, you know, zombie-like way."

Melissa McCarthy: "Yeah, he goes into like weird, slow robot mode. It's very interesting."

    Mattie McDonald was one of the prettiest women I'd ever seen. She had light green eyes, dark brown hair and milky white skin. When she wafted by me, she smelled of lavender, honeysuckle and some other hypnotizing perfume I couldn't quite put my finger on. I spent a lot of my spare time daydreaming about her and not just because I wanted to know her. Ultimately, I wanted to be her.

    You can work up a great big hunger when you're an action hero, especially if you're playing a guy who's half man, half god. Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson gets really hungry in his latest movie, "Hercules." Our So-Flo homeboy had to stay pretty jacked for the role. That meant watching his diet, but when it was finally time to let loose, he knew just where to go.
