“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.”

        “I feel like religion can get very judgmental and a lot of people don’t approach you with love,” she says, pausing thoughtfully. “I try to be conscious of the responsibility I have as a Christian, but if I did everything everyone told me to do or tried to please everyone, I couldn’t have my hair a particular way, I couldn’t wear certain clothes, I couldn’t play certain characters, I can’t hang out with certain people, can’t wear a certain amount of makeup — and you can’t let people run your life. You have to look to God. People will fall in line.”

    Very typical current American Christian attitudes: I profess Christ as savior but NOT my Lord. People, read your Bible for personal convictions if you are sincere about this Christian living stuff.

      There you go again projecting your belief and rewording what she said.

  • Nehes Ba’a Rayay

    she has internal struggles about her religious convictions. Mary Magdalene believed in God too but she was a Whore that Jesus redeemed. (Go read your ‘Holy Books’) she’s gonna have to decide if she wants to be Mary (Mother of Christ) or Jezebel. #theblindinglightofmisinformationmustend

    • Nana

      Did she say she has struggles with her convictions? All that matters is one’s relationship with God. How does Meagan Good relate to Mary Magdalene? Are you trying to imply she’s a whore?

    • Eric Toomer

      You are the exact person she is talking about. Being so judgmental and trying to watch her every move(what she wears, says, does, etc.) Since you wanna throw the bible at people, I read where Mary Magdalene was the lead apostle/disciple. #Read the freaking article

    I love Meagan but never really pictured her being a pastor’s wife. All the best to her and her husband.

  • Eric Toomer

    Meagan on point!

    Meagan Good is her own person. She has the right to have her own beliefs and to do things her own way because it will only affect her life. I support her actually anddd I love her ^_^
