I know you’re exhausted by all this news about how fun and well-adjusted Will Ferrell is and how none of us will ever measure up to his stratospheric levels of humor and/or mental health. But here is more of it anyway! Now including Ferrell’s positive body image message and his feelings on bombing at SNL:
“If something wasn’t working, the tendency would be to speed up and get through it,” he says. “But I would slow way down, and I would have this thing—I don’t know why, I love the audience, I want them to laugh, and yet something would kick in like, ‘Okay, you don’t like it, I’m going to make sure you really hate it,’ so I would just take my time. I don’t know, it was like a perverse joy in the agony of it being so painful. I can’t explain that.”
Do you also have a perverse joy in the agony of being the coolest person in the world, Will Ferrell? Probably. I want to be you.
