“You learn to just go for it.”

Meagan Good has been making movies ever since she was an anonymous little girl complaining about Big Worm’s shoddy ice cream truck services in the classic 1995 comedy Friday. And the road from child star to legitimate adult roles is rife with well-documented difficulty. But she’s made it look easy — mostly because of her willingness to “just go for it.” She’s applied that mind-set to her latest project, the highly anticipated Think Like a Man Too, which reunites her with an ensemble cast that includes Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall and Romany Malco.

“It was different [this time] because this was the first time the girls got to be together,” Good shares. “The majority of the time I was working with the girls and the guys were with the guys. So [there was] a lot of being silly and girl talk and just having a good time.”

Good’s previous film, 2013’s Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, was also a comedy sequel and it paired her with superstar funnyman Will Ferrell. But prior to the original Think Like A Man, she admittedly was nervous about comedy. “The first Think Like a Man loosened me up a little bit, and [so did] Anchorman 2,” she says. “By the time I got to Think Like a Man Too, I was more comfortable and free.”
