Who knew that Will Ferrell was such a fan of celebrity gossip? Well, we did know leading up to his interview on “Conan” Thursday night that he was definitely a fan of being a ham.
In an interview designed primarily to promote his new movie “The Campaign” Thursday night, Ferrell opened up on a subject that has completely and totally dominated the tabloids within the past week or so — the controversy surrounding Kristen Stewart cheating on her boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders. He started things off in the segment below by being matter-of-fact when it came to the news that the couple could break up — but then he came completely and totally unhinged. He started to pretend to cry, saying that the “Twilight” stars were meant to be together, and that Stewart was pretty much the worst person alive for destroying a match made in heaven.
As soon as the emotions started to come out, Conan tried to put on his sympathetic cap — and from here, things really did start to go completely and totally inside. Ferrell started to shout at Conan, blaming him for not being sincere enough and understanding the concept of real love. It was really just the actor doing the same sort of “freakout” shtick that we have seen from him time and time again, but this time through the lens of a popular celebrity couple.
