Mike Tyson says his performance in 'The Hangover' was merely to fund his drug habit

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has opened up to a number of different outlets recently about his drug addiction.
Most recently, he spoke with ESPN about how he only appeared as himself in 'The Hangover' - a blockbuster success of a movie about the misadventures of a few Las Vegas visitors - to fund his drug habit.

According to a popular website:

"I was doing that to supply my drug habit," he said. He added that he planned on selling bootlegs of the movie, but instead it was an "international success."

Tyson, who recently became a vegan, also took time while on the air to talk about how the death of his four-year old daughter impacted his life and decisions. Listen to the entire interview here.
