Bradley Cooper has never looked….worse.

Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and the rest of ‘The Hangover III’ cast were on hand last night at the premiere of the final movie in the Hangover trilogy (thank God it’s over).

Bradley is currently filming the new David O. Russell movie in Boston, which is set in the 70’s. I think Brad likes the decade, and is still dressing in character when he’s not filming. What other excuse could we give for this horrific orange suit?

I can excuse the hair, I know it’s for his part….. but it’s just not a good look on him. Bring the hot Bradley back!

How is it for the boys to say goodbye to the franchise?

“The story is different just because it’s not about piecing together the night before, it’s not a drugged hangover kind of thing,” said Bartha. “It’s about Alan, Zach’s character coming to terms with his life and also his friendship with Mr. Chow. So it’s really about Alan. And also, it’s really a wrap-up to the trilogy.”

How was the cast feeling about saying goodbye to the franchise that powered their collective careers? “It’s a little sad. It’s bittersweet,” Cooper told reporters, noting the one lesson he’s taking with him: “Gratitude.”

“Of course it’s very, very sad,” seconded Helms. “But also very fun. It’s a celebration.”

Galifianakis says it’s the Wolfpack he’ll miss the most. “Without sounding too corny, there’s a lot of laughing going on on set,” he said. “There’s a lot of camaraderie. There’s a lot of making fun of each other. I will miss that. I won’t miss getting made fun of. But I love making fun of the other guys. We click.”

How does he keep a straight face on set? “I’m deaf,” Galifianakis deadpanned. “I can barely hear anything.” But seriously, “Things that make me laugh are few and far between. I’m a little bit too jaded. It’s easy for me not to laugh sometimes.”

For Graham, Las Vegas is now synonymous with the franchise. “I feel like whenever I go to Vegas I just think of the film,” she said. “And also because everywhere you go they’re selling the memorabilia. At Caesars Palace they have a slot machine that has my picture on it.”

Surely that’s got to increase her odds? “I’ve never played it,” she grinned. “Maybe I should.”

Zach Galifianakis on ‘The Hangover III’: “I’m getting fricking phone calls already”

In the Rolling Stone cover story, Zach Galifianakis – who doesn’t have a publicist or an assistant and still drives his 1998 Subaru – tells Rolling Stone contributing editor Josh Eells that he’s having difficulty getting used to life as a celebrity. “I’m terrible about people wanting to take pictures with me,” Galifianakis says. “I’m a giant baby about it. They treat you like a cartoon. There’s nothing you can do except make light of it. That’s if I’m in the mood. Sometimes I get superbummed.”

That doesn’t mean he’s going to stop making movies. “They want to do a Hangover III,” he says. “I’m getting fricking phone calls already.” According what he’s heard, the plot ditches the format of the first two and focuses on his character escaping from a mental institution with help from the wolf pack.

Other highlights from the story:

• At the White House Correspondents’ Dinner after party, Galifianakis wandered down to the pool and bumped into Jane Lynch and her wife and Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his boyfriend. “Nice to meet you!” he said to the group. “I didn’t realize it was Gay Night by the swimming pool.” At the time, he saw nothing wrong with the exchange. “I walked away like, ‘Another good one!'” he says. “But my girlfriend said, ‘I gotta tell you, Zach – that did not go over well. You have to watch people’s reactions!'”

• About 10 years ago, he got hired to write for Saturday Night Live. Britney Spears was the musical guest and he pitched a sketch in which Spears was being interviewed by Entertainment Tonight when she suddenly, and without explanation, began bleeding from the mouth. She didn’t find the idea funny. “I remember starring at the ground for, like, 20 seconds, just silent,” Galifiankis says. “45,000 open mics, and I’m trying to impress this 18-year old pop star.” He lasted two weeks at the job.

• Galifianakis says he turned down $700,000 to be a Time Warner spokesperson, and after the success of The Hangover Nike contacted him. “We had a conference call,” he says. “The first thing I said was, ‘So, do you guys still have seven-year-olds making your stuff?'” He didn’t get the job.
