Susan Sarandon: ‘It’s Important to Make An Ass of Yourself’

Susan Sarandon, the costar of “Tammy” who plays the titular Melissa McCarthy character's alcoholic grandmother, says it's actually not hard to play a crazy character. In fact, it's pretty liberating.

“I think the first thing that anybody has to do is make fun of themselves. Besides doing hallucinogens, that's the biggest way to let go of your ego. You have to be able to just say, 'OK that was stupid.' Once you're stupid a few times, it's really freeing.”
