    Ken Jeong jokes about screen rants

    Ken Jeong never feels "comfortable" recording his rude quotes for The Hangover fans in case they play them to their young children.

    Ken Jeong has joked he doesn't mind his young twin daughters watching his foul-mouthed on-screen rants because "they're jerks".

    The comedy actor is famed for his role as flamboyant Chinese gangster Leslie Chow in The Hangover films. His character is famed for his funny one-liners and Ken is often asked to record voicemail messages by enthusiastic fans, although he doesn't always feel comfortable doing it.

    Ken has joked that his young daughters can listen to his blasphemous quotes though.

    "Every single day! It's something like, now, I'm uncomfortable doing it. I don't mind doing a little bit of it, but it can't be, I just don't want to be cursing and having them show their three-year-old daughter, 'Hey look what this famous actor said!' And I'm like 'What the f**k' and the three-year-old is like 'Ah, what the f**k!'

    "I don't want to scar kids like that. I don't care about my own kids. They can be scarred like that. They're jerks. I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Love you Alexa and I forgot the other name, Zooey, Zooey!"

    Ken famously bared all on screen for the first two Hangover films. The star - who is reprising his role in the upcoming instalment The Hangover Part III - is always asked about his "small penis".

    "And it is. It's small!" he laughed. "I mean there are prosthetics used in the second movie. I'm a grower, not a shower, whatever.

    "My wife said The Hangover movies will be the feel-good movies of the summer because every guy will go home feeling good about themselves. This is coming from my wife. The mother of my kids. Even she's laughing at my penis."

    Ken stars alongside Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis - who plays unwitting character Alan.

    The actor says Zach's character holds the most interest for him.

    "If I wasn't Mr Chow and I was Ken Jeong I'd be scared of Alan. He has a look of an angel but then he does things that go quite awry. He's not at all evil. I think Chow is evil. Chow is evil and Alan is really a pure-hearted person. He's an innocent person. It's like good and evil hanging out together," he explained.
