Ken Jeong
The Hangover Part II star Ken Jeong has to check with his wife Tran before baring all on the big screen - because he wouldn't strip if she was against it.

The Asian-American star, a former doctor, famously peeled off for the first Hangover film - and he does the same in the upcoming sequel.

But Jeong had to make sure his wife was OK with his nudity before agreeing to get naked.

He says, "I run everything by my wife before I do anything, so I had full permission from her to do all the nudity filming. I'm very blessed I have such a supportive wife that is secure with letting me embarrass m...

The Hangover Part 2
Moviemaker Todd Phillips has spoken out about his decision to cut a Mel Gibson cameo from his "The Hangover" sequel, insisting it just wasn't worth upsetting members of his crew just for two minutes of film.

He's rich and he drives a Porsche. Annie runs into the bathroom, puts on lipstick, fluffs her hair and gets back into bed. Jon wakes up, looks at Annie and very sweetly says...'I want you to leave but I don't ...
