At what price comedy?
Solemn news to begin one’s weekend. It would appear that the Hangover Part 2’s already-iconic monkey has become addicted. To cigarettes. If it sounds hilarious and awesome, PETA wants you to know that you’re completely wrong, and it’s not. Perhaps the stress of showbusiness was too much for little Crystal, who also starred in A Night at the Museum, which would drive anyone to substance abuse.
Director Todd Phillips trained the monkey to smoke for its obvious comedic purpose in the film, but now the threat of monkey emphysema is all too precious and real. Which would just be funny, except Crystal still has work to do! She’s currently filming Cameron Crowe‘s We Bought a Zoo. Which is also hilarious on a different level, as now Crystal may have trouble keeping up her antics while soundtracked to a Heart song during a touching rock moment.
