Actress Meagan Good got her pose on for Complex magazine. For the Complex magazine spread, Meagan had a really fun and flirty photo shoot which featured her rocking purple ombré tresses, high waist shorts with stilettos, a floral ensemble with knee-high socks and sneakers and even hit the skating rink in some roller skates.
Inside the issue, Meagan dished on her new movie “Anchorman 2,” rebirthing her career and playing the female lead.
On trying to sell herself as being funny:
Well, that’s the thing. It’s a trick thing to pull off, but it also gives you a little bit more freedom, because usually you’re with someone you know who’s reading the lines off with you. You’re comfortable with them. I was blessed to have [Deception co-star] Katherine LaNasa, who was inThe Campaign with Will, so she was doing, like, a perfect Will Ferrell impression for me. She is, like, the sweetest, wackiest, most amazing woman, and she was going all the way in, so it allowed me to go all the way in. I didn’t add anything too much to the lines. You never know, when you’re working with someone who’s a genius in their field, you don’t want to tamper too much unless you know you can.
Once I put myself on tape, when I got there in person, Adam was like, “Just go for it. Whatever you’re thinking, just say it. Go for it.” In the audition, that’s what I did. I tore off my shoes and threw them against the wall—I just totally went for it. I think I might have punched Will in the stomach by accident, too. [Laughs.]
On her character in “Anchorman 2”:
Linda Jackson is Ron Burgundy’s boss. She is one of the first black women to be the head of a news station like that, and a network like that. It’s very interesting, because this takes place at the end of ‘70s and the beginning of the ‘80s, so he’s never seen anything like that. Initially, I just think he’s an idiot; I don’t care for him, they’re at odds with each other. During the duration of the film, she realizes that she’s finally met her equal in this crazy, silly guy. That is kind of the turning point where she starts to go, “This is the one who will stand up to me, and will tell me what he thinks, and will do all the intimidating things I tell him to do—maybe there’s something there.”
