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?
