In a 2009 interview, Ferrell said, “It doesn’t really exist, this Frat Pack. We run into each other on occasion and we all like each other’s films, I guess, but there isn’t some big funny restaurant or bar where we all hang out.

At least, if there is, they haven’t invited me.”

Ferrell has received an Emmy nomination and three Golden Globe nominations.

Success Tips from Will Ferrell

1.”I’ve got no dark secrets, I wasn’t beaten up, my parents were kind to me and there was a low crime rate where we lived. Maybe that’s where the comedy comes from, as some sort of reaction to the safe, boring suburbs. I have to say, though, I never had any resentment of the place. I loved the suburbs.”

2.“I’d much rather be in a comedy. In my view, comedy wins out in the long run. I’m not sure I’m a good enough actor to play real tragedy, so I bring a comic element to most things as my answer to the world’s problems. I’m not a clown, though. I love goofing around, but I don’t feel the need to act the clown in private. I do it at work, that’s where I exorcise my demons. Although I confess that I do sometimes put together outfits to annoy my wife.”
