The Smoking Hangover 2 Monkey Story Was a Joke

The-Hangover-2 Never work with children or animals, or so the saying goes.

And it’s something The Hangover 2 director Todd Phillips has found to his cost.

The director has admitted that the monkey, which features in the forthcoming comedy, has become addicted to cigarettes following filming.

‘I wanted the monkey to smoke so we had to train her to,’ Phillips told Total Film magazine.

‘Now I have PETA after me because the monkey’s become addicted to cigarettes.’

And unfortunately, the monkey has taken her bad habit to another film set.

‘She was just shooting Cameron Crowe’s movie We Bought A Zoo. And the monkey won’t stop smoking,’ said Phillips.

This isn’t the first time The Hangover’s monkey has come under the spotlight.

The initial trailer for the film, which showed controversial scenes featuring the animal, was pulled by the Motion Picture Association of America after it attracted a host of complaints.

However the monkey has continued to feature heavily in promotional material and trailers for the film, which again stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, and Ed Helms.

The movie takes place two years after the first film which was set in Las Vegas, and features the boys throwing a bachelor party for Stu.

Once again, things don’t go to plan and the trio wake up in a Bangkok hotel room with Ed’s character Stu waking up with a tattoo on his face and Stu’s brother-in-law Teddy missing.

During the mission to find Teddy, the trio visit a monastery where Alan gets knocked out by a monk, a girly bar where gun fire breaks out and yet another car chase where the boys trash a sports car.
