Tyler Perry Interview
Your movies always have a Christian theme, but how are you are reaching unbelievers?
It's clearly Madea. Madea is such an inviting figure. That's why I'll never change her. She'll never be saved. She'll never be Christian. She is the disarmer to invite people to come in and see the movie. And then, I'll have other characters represent that too.
I don't want to just do movies to do movies. I want to do movies that inspire, motivate, and change lives. And as long as I'm doing that, I feel like I'm doing the right thing.
But, Madea is the reason that the saved and unsaved, believers or not, Muslim, Jews, everyone will come together to see this film. I mean, she's a really great character.
