Shocker: Mike Tyson Was High During "The Hangover"

The least surprising news ever.

Get this: Mike Tyson says he was high on coke while filming The Hangover. In fact, he wasn't only high, he only signed up to do the movie for access to the powder. 

“‘They had to know I was messed up,” Tyson said of his acting mates Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianaki and Justin Bartha. “I couldn’t talk. I had the cocaine talk.”

The Daily Mail has the actual story, which centers on Tyson's bizarre journey, including when Brad Pitt stole his wife (below), and his road to happiness.
