Will Ferrell and his son Magnus (aww!)

OK, Gorgeouses. How adorable is Will Ferrell? If you've been reading me on the Internet (I've been around for a whiiiile), you know I love Will. He's definitely one of the funniest celebrities out there. Which is why when I met Grey's Anatomy's Ellen Pompeo a couple years ago, I had to ask her what it was like working with him on the set of Old School, and was delighted to listen to her go on and on:

OH! OH! If you met him, you would love him even more. I have to say, honestly? He is the nicest, nicest guy.

He's from California. His parents came to the set — and his parents are adorable. He's just super, sweet, genuine, amazing.... But, it's kind of awkward because, when he's just introducing his parents, I don't think you're supposed to crack up at him.... But, I was!

He's giving the PA [personal] his breakfast order. You're not supposed to laugh in his face, but I was constantly laughing at him. He's just FUNNY.

I mean, I can't say enough about him. He's amazing, super nice and SUPER TALL. He's 6'5". That movie [
Old School] was — Craig Kilborn is 6'12", Vince Vaughn is 6'7", and Will Ferrell is 6'4" — it's  the tallest cast in history. And Ivan Reitman, who produced that movie, is also super tall.

Isn't that great? I probably should have edited it down. But she was so excited to talk about him, and because I love him so, I wanted to preserve all that enthusiasm!

ANYWAY! In the photo above, Will and his son, Magnus Paulin-Ferrell, 8, were having a sweet (and probably funny) heart-to-heart after a soccer game in Santa Monica, California, yesterday. Will even stopped to talk to some lucky, lucky fans.

Ohhh, to meet him one day!
