Galifianakis: My monkey business

Zach Galifianakis seems to be resenting all the attention his cute co-star is getting for The Hangover Part II.

It's not Bradley Cooper the bearded actor is jealous of, but his furry rival Crystal the monkey.

"Monkeys..." Zach sighed, adding: "She's not acting, she's just being!"

In the sequel, which has broken box office records in the US, Crystal accompanies the boys around Bangkok as they try to figure out just what went on the night before.

Zach joked that his co-star Ed Helms needed Crystal's help more than most after picking up food poisoning in the city.

"Ed had to borrow one of the monkey's diapers!" Zach said.

But the funnyman insisted that this time around, there wasn't time to be silly during the shoot.

"The script was pretty tight, I don't think I was going off script as much as maybe I was in the first one, but you throw out a line here or there to keep it fresh," he explained.

"Whether it ends up in the movie or not is not really the point, you're not trying to hog the scene its just like 'let's see if I can make Bradley laugh!'," he said.
