And that's JUST FINE!
A lot of people are afraid of heights. We're sure they all wish they weren't, and we wish they could conquer it too — but it's one of those fears that people can live with pretty easily. It's just a bummer when it interferes with life and duties!
Take Zach Galifianakis, for instance: he had to miss the Sugarloaf Mountain Press Conference because he can't do heights!
The event was scheduled for Hangover III press, but then he found out the Morro da Urca site in Rio, where the press conference was held, is 220 metres (722 feet) above ground and can only be reached by cable car!
He specifically cited his fear of heights as to why he wouldn't be attending. He DID call in, though, according to a source:
"Zach is afraid of heights, and called into the press conference to let participants know, and made a few jokes."
We're glad everyone was light hearted about it!
We bet he would've been there had he could've made the ascent! It's okay, Zach! Maybe you'll beat it someday, just like you beat drinking!
