LAist recently sat down with Malin Akerman, one of the stars of the upcoming comedy Couples Retreat. She opened up to us about the other half of her real life couple and shared one of the ways she keeps her marriage strong even when she can’t find the time to retreat to a tropical paradise.

LAist: You’ve been in quite a few big comedies. In The Heartbreak Kid with Ben Stiller you were not so much a loveable character…

Malin: Nope. (laughs)

LAist: And you were Tess, the crazy, selfish sister in 27 Dresses. You’ve played some rather wicked yet hilarious people.

Malin: A lot of times when you have a Leading Lady role, which is not to say that’s not something I want to do, I really want to do a leading role someday, but a lot of times the sidekicks and the costars are always the most quirky characters and they are always the most fun to play.
