Zach Galifianakis - Zach Galifianakis: 'Fame won't change me'

Zach Galifianakis won't let fame change him.

The 'Hangover Part III' actor became a worldwide star after finding fame in 2009's hit comedy 'The Hangover', but he insists that doesn't get ''caught up'' in the Hollywood lifestyle and even drives the same car he bought in 1998.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the 'Hangover Part III' European premiere in London, he said:'' I see it happen with a lot of funny people - they get caught up [in Hollywood]. I haven't really changed that much. This is not really my scene.

''I still live in the same house and have driven the same Station Wagon since 1998. Money is poison and honey, so you've got be careful.''

The 43-year-old star admits he wasn't prepared for the whirlwind success that came with his role as oddball Alan Garner in the comedy franchise and thinks the attention he receives is ''bizarre''.

He added: ''I don't think anyone knew the amount of attention [we'd get]. It's kind of bizarre to us all. We knew it was a good movie, but we didn't know it would strike a chord like it did.''

'The Hangover Part III' is in cinemas now.
