Zach Galifianakis - Zach Galifianakis 'Not Adjusting Well' To Fame

Funnyman Zach Galifianakis has been struggling to cope with life in the spotlight since shooting to stardom in The Hangover, confessing he is "not adjusting well" to fame.
The stand-up comedian became an international star after landing a role in the bachelor party comedy, and he has gone on to work with Robert Downey, Jr. in Due Date as well appearing in the recent Hangover sequel.
Galifianakis admits overnight success came as a shock and he is still not completely comfortable with his stardom.
He tells Rolling Stone, "I'll be honest with you: I'm not adjusting to it well. I don't mean that as a complaint. Most people wouldn't be well-adjusted. I just get confused by people asking me questions. For years, nobody asked me a question, ever.
"So now when someone says, 'Oh, you're going to be on the cover of Rolling Stone,' my first reaction is, 'Ehhh, I don't think that's a good idea. I mean, it's cool - but does it have to be the cover? What's Blink-182 doing these days?"'
