Jamie Chung almost said no to appearing in The Hangover Part II - because she was tempted to have a holiday.

The Sucker Punch actress was all set to take some time off after filming action thriller Premium Rush when she got the all-important call to act in the highly anticipated sequel.

"I really fancied a vacation on a beach, so, I flew to the Philippines, which was a 24 hour flight. The next morning my manager called and said, 'You've got to come back to LA', and I was like, 'There's no way, there's nothing out there that's going to make me want to come back to LA. I've just got here!' - but it was The Hangover 2, so I booked the flight back home," she said.

Jamie, who plays Ed Helms' on-screen fiance, was made to feel very comfortable amongst the guys - Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifinakis and Justin Bartha - as they filmed in Bangkok, Krabi and in film studios in LA.

"It was cool going from an all-girl gang to trying to sneak my way into the wolf-pack, if you know what I mean," she revealed.

"But the guys were really awesome, really chilled and really humble, so they made it really easy."

The Hangover Part II will be released next month, while Sucker Punch is out now.
