The Hangover: Part II, the Smoking Monkey???
Posted on April 19, 2011 | Movie Info
It’s all done for The Hangover Part II! shooting, released the movie poster and are ready to be played later in May in the United States. But, unfortunately, near the time of its release the film, Todd Philips precisely raged the anger of animal-lovers.
Outrage begins with the animal-lovers of Philips statement during an interview with Total Film magazine some time ago which said that the monkey in the movie addicted to cigarettes.
Here is what Phillips explained to the unfortunate situation to Total Film Magazine as quoted from movieline,
“I wanted the monkey to smoke so we had to train her to. Now I have PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) after me because the monkey’s become addicted to cigarettes. She was just shooting Cameron Crowe’s movie We Bought A Zoo. And the monkey won’t stop smoking.”
But after the news circulated, now director of the state defense. Phillips has said his defense had sent via email to movieline,
“This was a joke. I make comedies.”
“If you read the story, it doesn’t even make sense. “On the set of her new film, she won’t stop smoking cigarettes”. Umm. Really? Maybe just take them away from her. Or at least take her money away so she can’t buy them any longer.”
“When you are doing press for a film, it tends to get repetitive, lots of the same questions over and over. Sometimes I like to mix it up with the journalists. Obviously, the monkey in the film NEVER smoked a single cigarette. There are people on set whose sole job is to protect that monkey. Even if I wanted her to smoke it wouldn’t be allowed. By the way, she also appears to do cocaine in the movie, but I guarantee you that she didn’t do that either (I can’t, however, comment on Ken Jeong’s cocaine use in the film).”
“Sorry for the confusion, but it definitely is a funny headline “PETA pissed after Todd Phillips gets Hangover 2 monkey addicted to cigarettes.” Definitely one for the office wall.”
The Hangover II will (again) starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha. The film is scheduled to be released on May 26, 2011 in the United States.
