Former boxing champ Mike Tyson has confessed to playing himself in The Hangover to fund a cocaine habit.

The 46-year-old told Yahoo! Sports: "I was a mess. I was overweight. I was a pig, high on cocaine."

He said he was sure the cast knew he was high while making the hit film.

"They had to know I was messed up. I couldn't talk," Tyson said of actors Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha.

"Those guys are just beautiful people. They had my back and I appreciate that, then they asked me to come back [in The Hangover 2]."
