Jamie Chung was accidentally slighted by Renee Zellweger and Bradley Coope
Jamie Chung recently spilled her “co-star secrets” in a sit-down with Us Weekly and revealed a moment involving Bradley Cooper that she still cringes over. The actors were in Thailand filming “The Hangover Part II” at the time, when Cooper was dating actor Renée Zellweger. “I’m so awkward and uncomfortable … I’m so awkward on set, I don’t know why,” Chung dished. “I guess people make me nervous.”
Jamie Chung recalled seeing Cooper and Zellweger on location at the gym and mustering up the courage to say hello. “Renée had these, like, sound-canceling earphones on and didn’t hear me,” Chung explained, adding she felt “so ‘[deflated]” about the embarrassing moment. “And Bradley — I remember — just looks over and he saw the whole thing,” she said, sharing that he laughed off the moment with a shrug toward Chung.
Despite the awkward encounter, Jamie Chung speaks highly of working with the leading men of “The Hangover.” “There were a lot of times when I would be cracking up,” Chung told Vibe of her experience on set. “You always have to stay on your toes when you’re around comedians because they’re so funny and so witty and smart.“
