I could eat healthier, I could drink less. I should be learning another language and working out more, but I’m just always saying, ‘Ah, I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.’
In this comedy directed by Ben Falcone, McCarthy plays Tammy, who after losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, hits the road with her hard-drinking grandmother.Co-starring Ben Falcone, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates and Allison Janney. Asked if she has had a memorable trip that inspired her film:
One time, I did have to pull over. I was like, ‘I’m driving this time. That will keep me awake.’ If I’m caged, I immediately go out. It was before the 405. I just remember Ben going, ‘Oh, my god, you’re swerving!’ We did not make it 15 minutes from the house, and I had to pull over so that we could switch. I’m good for the first 10 minutes, and then I’m out, so I’m super helpful. After we shot this, we drove all the way back to Los Angeles from Niagara Falls, with our kids. That was a doozy.
Seacrest interviews McCarthy during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her latest film Tammy, which she wrote with her husband.
Strangely, it was great. Everyone was like, ‘Ugh, that’s a lot of time together,’ I’m like, ‘I know, but he’s so mellow and funny’ that it was nice that we finally actually got to spend time together.
McCarthy appears on the cover of People to discuss laughter, how she found stardom, and her true love
I’ll do almost anything for a laugh. I’m completely delighted by people who think, I don’t care what anybody else thinks, I look great in this, and I rock it and I love it.’ It’s such a delightful sort of confidence.

Instead of just coming in with funny lines, which is a blast, it’s more challenging to think of where the character is going. How do you relate to three shows ago? I like the math of acting where you have to keep all those puzzle pieces in line.
