LONDON: Will Ferrell once had to spend a day calling members of his family â€” to assure them he was still alive.
The Anchorman star was incorrectly named as the victim of a hang gliding accident. He says, â€œIt was this crazy rumour that I had died and it was not fun to go through. It was rough.â€
â€œMy publicist told me about it and I had to call my family and make sure they didnâ€™t hear it first â€” and believe it.â€
But Ferrell is getting used to hearing and reading strange rumours about himself.
He said, â€œI heard that I was a germaphobe, and I carry my own pen to sign autographs. Crazy.â€
