“I definitely felt a lot of anxiety and identity turmoil,” Helms said (via Entertainment Weekly). “One of the craziest things about taking such a massive leap to fame is — and I think it’s something that people who have never dealt with it or come close to it can never understand. — is just a total waste of your environment.”Being a celebrity, you can’t just stand on the baggage claim and expect it to be the norm.
But, Helms added, he “feels very fortunate for that, too, because my public persona has gradually risen.” Helms said The Office and The Daily Show only gave him a “toy level” of fame, but The Hangover was a “whole new level”… It was exciting, and in another way I was lucky to have it. Was–lucky in 10 million ways–he was Bradley. [Cooper] And Zach [Galifianakis] And I was on the same level before, so we were all going through it together. If it weren’t for those people, I don’t think I’d be sane. We all had to measure each other…compassion and ourselves.”
The Hangover movies proved to be so successful that it grossed $1.42 billion between 2009 and 2013.
