5 Things To Know About Crystal The Hangover Monkey

| Filed under: Film FlickersBradley CooperMonkey

Here are 5 things to know about Hollywoods hottest animal starlet!

1. In real life, she doesn't smoke.

Crystal's trainer, Thomas Gunderson, worked with his 17-year-old monkey so that she could hold a hollow prop that looked like a cigarette (the smoke effects were added later through CGI). She also learned how to use several different kinds of lighters (that didn't have real flames).

2. She doesn't have any other deviant behaviors, either.

According to her trainer:

"Most monkeys are liars, Crystal is not. She's not a good liar. She's very honest. She takes her work very seriously."

3. She was pretty popular on the Hangover set.

While actors Bradley Cooper and Ken Jeong had worked with Crystal on other projects, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis hadn't. Gunderson says they started out "a little – and this is putting it very mildly – apprehensive.

Eventually, Crystal became a member of the "Wolf Pack," and people would take turns petting her, feeding her, and the group would often sit and have lunch together.

4. She's not a diva.

While Crystal may look like one on the red carpet, this is one down-to-earth capuchin. "She doesn't understand all this stuff," Gunderson says.

"When we were on the red carpet, there was a lot of noise, a lot of lights, a lot to keep her stimulated. Most monkeys would probably be stressed out and not want to be there. She stands right out there and smiles and waves."

5. She's named after a country singer.

Soon after Gunderson was assigned to train his new monkey about 15 years ago, he was sitting in his car when a song by the country singer Crystal Gayle came on the radio.

The Real Star Of Hangover Part II!

The Real Star Of Hangover Part II!

Take a bow!

It was soo cute to see Crystal, the trained capuchin monkey/actress/cuteness, walk down the red carpet for the premiere of the Hangover Part II in LA last night!

According to co-star Bradley Cooper, Crystal deserves the recognition for her "miracle" work. In the before shooting he wasn't sure the monkey was gonna be able to do everything the script called for.

"I remember [director Todd Phillips and I] were talking about it. He was saying there's gonna be this drug-dealing mule that's a monkey and it's gonna smoke, and I was like, 'How the hell are you gonna pull this off?' You know, Crystal has turned out to be just a miracle monkey. She's incredible. She can do anything."

Cooper toted Crystal around on his shoulder during many Hangover II scenes, which was fun for the actor, except for one part…

"The only downside to Crystal is that she has very long claws, and you don't want to get Crystal around an elephant. There was one scene where we were walking down the street, and there was an elephant, and she sort of destroyed my shoulder."

We hope Brad and Crystal work together again soon. Valentine's Day Part II perhaps?

Bradley Cooper Shows Big Love For His Dog

Bradley Honors His Dog

LOVES IT!

Bradley Cooper once said his dogs are his kids.

Clearly a huge animal lover, Cooper adopted his beloved dog Samson, a German shorthaired pointer, from a kill shelter's Web site just three weeks before he was going to be euthanized.

Sadly, Samson passed away last year and Cooper had a beautifully enormous portrait honoring Samson hung in his Pacific Palisades home (Charlotte is resting under the table). How fantastic is this portrait?! LOVE IT!

Now, to complete the look, he just has to find a lady to share the cozy spot under the photo. Brad says potential girlfriends must love his dogs too.

"She has to like my dogs. My dogs and I come in a package."

His recent ex Renée Zellweger was often spotted walking Charlotte.
