Mike Tyson in The HangoverFormer Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson has revealed the reason he agreed to play himself in last summer's box-office smash 'The Hangover': to feed his out-of-control drug habit.

Tyson spoke to ESPN Radio Las Vegas recently, during which he discussed his part in the film, and let's just say his answers are a bit bizarre, to say the least.

Regarding 'The Hangover,' Tyson said, "I was doing that to supply my drug habit. I'm sorry I'm coming at you guys like this ... I said, 'Wow, This is going to be really good. We're going to sell this stuff on 42nd street on bootleg and make a lot of money.' This is my best thinking on drugs ... It wasn't that way. It was an international success."
