Will Ferrell used his popularity and comic genius for good yesterday when he ran an “Ask me Anything” session on the social network Reddit.
The actor used the session to raise money for the charity Cancer for College which helps provide college scholarships for cancer survivors.
Some funny questions that came Ferrell’s way from fans and the public included, “What does Mark Whalberg smell like”? and “What was the craziest Hollywood party you’ve ever been to”?
One particularly good one was, “Is there any movie role, outside of comedy, that you wish you could have landed?” to which Ferrell wittingly answered: “Yes. It was down to me or Tobey Maguire for Spider-Man and they harshly told me I was too fat for the suit.”
