September 1, 2008: "Will Ferrell Doesn't Want To Be Taken Seriously"
Will Ferrell doesn't want to be taken seriously. The 'Step Brothers' star starred in quirky drama 'Stranger Than Fiction' in 2006 but insists he is not looking to become a serious actor.
He said: "I don't have this yearning to be respected or taken seriously. But it does bother me that comedy isn't considered hard to do."
Will also revealed starring on hit U.S. TV show 'Saturday Night Live' was a "very scary dream come true" and he couldn't believe he got the role.
He added: "I got 'Saturday Night Live' with a bit of a guilty conscience. There were people who had been at my comedy troupe Groundlings for six or seven years and became my teachers. For me to then get picked for 'Saturday Night Live' after three years. I was like, 'Um, sorry I got this!'"
"I felt like a mouse who found this hunk of cheese that nobody else got."
July 21, 2008: "Will Ferrell Gives Nicole Kidman Parenting Advice"
Will Ferrell has jokingly advised Nicole Kidman to talk to her newborn daughter "at least once a week."
Will says his 'Bewitched' co-star should attempt to communicate with her baby once every seven days.
When asked if he had any advice for Nicole, Will said: "For me, I would advise to talk to your children, at least once a week. If you've got time, do it two or three times a week. But otherwise, I find the times where I let weeks and weeks go by without talking to my children, that adds up."
Will also laughed his two sons with wife Viveca Paulin, Magnus and Mattias, have not inherited their father's comedy gene.
He added to People magazine: "No, they're not funny. They're deadly serious."
