Have you ever wanted to walk all over Will Ferrell? If you answered yes, we're not sure what to think, because that's not nice, you guys. Regardless, now you kinda can!
The famous comic has joined the long list of Tinseltown's greats after being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier today, and along with celebrating a milestone in his already-successful career, Ferrell's ceremony also included a lot of laughs because...it's Will Ferrell.
(Partly due to his hilarious friends who spoke about their pal's achievement. But we'll get there...)
"It's one of those very surreal moments where it's a place that you've visited a lot growing up, especially growing up in Southern California, and looking at all the names but I don't think you'd ever envision that one day you'll be in that same company," the star tells E! News, and added that since his star is in front of the Hollywood Wax Museum, he'd probably get a lifetime membership. Sounds fair.
Among those who attended was his buddy and fellow funnyman John C. Reilly, who co-starred with Ferrell in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers, along with Ferrell's Saturday Night Live castmate Molly Shannon.
Both joined him in speaking at the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard, and Reilly even recited a poem about Ferrell ending up on the street.
But not before dropping an F-bomb... "Maybe some day, in 50 years, people will look down on the sidewalk and say the things that we say today about some of these people: 'Who the f--k is this guy?" Reilly joked. "But I hope not. This man is deserving of all the praise we give him today."
Shannon praised Will for being one of the most genuine people in the industry, and revealed the actor had his doubts about succeeding in show business.
"He said, 'I don't know, what if acting doesn't work out? What if animation totally takes over and they don't need real human actors?'" Shannon said. "I said I don't think that's going to happen, and he said, 'I could just have a simple life, driving a truck or living on a farm and driving that truck on that farm.' So, he had a backup plan."
