Personal Quote:

It's not good for comedy to be like, 'Thanks for liking me'. Being popular is poison. My mom and dad are like, 'You're not enjoying any of this'. I say, 'It's your fault for not raising me up to be superficial'. See more »

Trivia:

Since his breakthrough performance in The Hangover (2009), he regularly gets invitations for wedding parties, with the request to come dressed as his 'Hangover' character Alan Garner. He says that he has no intention of ever honoring such a request. See more »
