Comedy legend and Funny Or Die patriarch Will Ferrell decided to drop by Reddit this afternoon and participate in his first-ever AMA with fans, to help benefit his favorite non-profit, Cancer For College.
In between an abundance of obviously silly responses, he did manage to sneak in a few surprisingly honest answers. For instance, did you know he recently ran out of vitamin b12 and now needs to go purchase more? That’s a win for the internet, if you ask us.
Below are some of the AMA’s best moments, and, eventually, you can just then read the whole thing here.
Wondering if Pearl ever followed through on her threats?
“Yes, she absolutely did. I lived in an abandoned bus for 6 months behind a casino in the City of Commerce. She’s a hateful person.”
His favorite SNL Sketch?
“I will say that off the top of my head, the two favorite sketches that I was a part of had to have been the Harry Caray space show with Jeff Goldblum and, of course the cowbell sketch with Christopher Walken.”
How often do fans approach him to quote lines from Anchorman?
“Zero times. It has never happened. Sadly I’m still waiting for it to happen.”
What’s the wildest Hollywood party he’s ever been to?
“Craziest Hollywood party was probably at the house of Dave Coulier right at the height of the Full House madness. This would’ve been ’92. I was 2 years out of college.”
Serious question: Will, are you or are you not a wizard?
“No, unfortunately I’m not. I have attempted to be a wizard on several occasions. I studied for about a year and a half at Ansontolliver’s Wizard School ‘it wasn’t a full year and a half. At the conclusion of which, Anson pulled me aside and said, “I don’t want you to waste any more of your money with me. I think it’s best for me to let you know you don’t have what it takes to be a wizard.” And for however sad I was on that day, I respect Anson so much for giving me the straight talk.”
“Why are red-handed people more genetically predisposed to crime?”
“Because they leave easily traceable fingerprints at the crime scene. Why red handed people don’t wear gloves while they’re committing crimes is beyond me. But maybe there’s just something that lives within each red handed person that makes them think, ‘I can get away with this!'”
When someone asked “What is Love? (because remember that song from that movie), Will responded:
“Love is a complicated thing to figure out. I don’t know if anyone ever will. I know this much. I love lamp.”
Ever wonder about the testicles he rubbed against the drum kit in Step Brothers?
“Those were not based on my testicles. However, Oscar winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis allowed his balls to be examined for the prosthetic balls to be made.
Side note: Those are, no joke, $10,000 worth of prosthetic balls that you see in that movie.”
And just because it needed to be mentioned.
“It has been acknowledged many times that myself and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, share a resemblance to each other. A lot of people think that it’s me playing for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. But that would be an insult to Chad Smith. The truth of the matter is there is no Will Ferrell. Only Chad Smith.”
Is there any movie role, outside of comedy, that he wishes he could have landed?
“Yes. It was down to me or Tobey Maguire for Spider-Man and they harshly told me I was too fat for the suit. That having been said, every time I watch Spider-Man I still think I was the better actor for the role.”
AND THEN A CONVERSATION WITH SNOOP DOGG HAPPENED!
Snoop: “ayy Will, imma need some more cowbell on tha next album, u game?”
Will: “Of course! I’m absolutely game, Snoop. I’ve also got some beats that I want to run by you. I’m warning you now, they’re not good. edit: In fact, I just talked myself out of it. I’m not going to show them to you.”
Snoop: “boats n hoes part 2 uhearme !! we may need 2 climb some trees first”
Will: “I got a lot of trees at my house. Eucalyptus, pine and california oak.”
And finally, Will discussed his daily vitamin intake:
“I take a multivitamin, vitamin C, flaxseed oil (not really a vitamin), fish oils with omega 3 (not really a vitamin) and vitamin b12. Which reminds me, I ran out of vitamin b12. I have to get some more vitamin b12.”
