“Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev had some fun on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday (Aug. 5) when she played a game of giant beer pong with host Jimmy Fallon. Interestingly, they go the “bouncing” method — perhaps that’s because the audience is so close behind the cups. 

Also, they are chugging real beer, much to Dobrev’s consternation because she hates beer — but she chugs it like a champ.

Below, Dobrev talks about how she made 2014 the “year of yes,” which means she wants to stop being afraid to try new things, so she’s saying yes to (mostly) everything. Within reason, of course.

But one of her big adventures was traveling by herself for the first time. She went to Europe and Asia, and while in Bali, she got bit by a monkey and now she has no feeling in her right thumb.

Dobrev also promotes her new movie, “Let’s Be Cops,” starring “New Girl’s” Damon Wayons Jr. and Jake Johnson. “I’ve never laughed more in my life, I’ve never worked with funnier people,” says Dobrev.

“Let’s Be Cops” opens nationwide Wednesday, Aug. 13.
