When it comes to ad-libbing, Andrea Savage is your girl!

In the new film Sleeping With Other People, the actress tells RumorFix that director Leslye Headland gives Savage, co-star Jason Sudeikis and cast some room to run free when it comes to making up their own lines in the moment.

The stars play sex addicts who attend regular 12 step meetings.

During an interview with the star at Sundance Film Festival over the weekend, Savage gives us a glimpse into what filming was like while being able to improvise. “There wasn’t a lot of stuff that was set for us to do so Leslye was like ‘Don’t think about anything — just whatever you guys wanna say, you go for it!’ And she would just let the camera roll,” the 41-year-old reveals.

Savage continues, “I felt like he [Sudeikis] and I got to bring our ownselves into it and make it our own way that wasn’t necessarily on the page or what Leslye had imagined and she was just like ‘do it!'”

All in all, Andrea reveals the flick “ended up being a better version than they had imagined, which was fun.”

Sounds like they had a blast!
