WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Susan Sarandon certainly does not look like her Tammy character in a picture she shared on Twitter.
In the movie, Tammy, which filmed in Wilmington, Brunswick County and Niagara Falls last year, Sarandon, 67, plays the grandmother of Melissa McCarthy's character.
Sarandon is almost unrecognizable in the movie, wearing a short, curly, white wig.
McCarthy plays the lead character, who totals her car, gets fired from her job and finds out her husband is cheating on her, all on the same day.
She then hits the road with her grandmother.
Dan Aykroyd, Allison Janney and Kathy Bates also appear in the movie.
Tammy was filmed in Wilmington last summer and will open in theaters July 2.
