Christina Applegate has commented on her Anchorman co-stars saying they're all softies and that she probably has more manly qualities than they do.

The 42-year-old star told Bang Showbiz about her co-stars Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell and David Koechner, "These guys are all softies. No machos on this set. I never felt that I was in need of a support group for women.

"I felt very comfortable with these guys on set. I probably have more manly qualities than most of those guys."

On keeping a straight face while filming the comedy movies she added, "It wasn't easy, I can tell you that. But at some point you have to remember that you are a professional, and that you need to keep it together. I think I ruined a lot of takes, maybe they'll put those on the DVD, so people can experience how much fun we really had."
