    Tyler said it takes four hours for him to transform into Madea.

    He also admitted that he might have gone overboard with the branding, referring to the use of his own name in the titles of his movies, TV shows and books.

    He also talks about how he was racially profiled backstage at the Oscars and about Madea’s Big Happy Family. Watch.
