Zach Galifianakis feels for child actors

May 25th, 2011

Zach Galifianakis "feels bad for child actors".

The actor - who stars in 'The Hangover Part 2' alongside Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms -enjoyed working with a young actor who plays a junior version of his character in the sequel, but did feel sorry for him.

He said: "You know, child actors that young, I sometimes feel bad for them. How much of it is their decision to be an actor?

"But that kid is super, super good and super sweet. I think he told me that he's not allowed to see the movie, which makes me happy. You need to let children be children."

Zach originally considered shave part of his beard for the role, but was eventually convinced to do his head instead because it was easier to work with.

He added to "My original idea was to catch my beard on fire and wake up with it singed off. Or at least half of it. But that would have been a whole big stunt and make-up thing.

"So someone said - I don't remember who - that we should shave my head. But originally, it was going to be that the beard caught on fire."
