Will Ferrell Pays For Friend's Honeymoon

Will Ferrell is such a great friend! One of his good friends who is a struggling actor recently got married. So Will secretly decided he wanted to pay for their honeymoon, and conjured up quite the story to do so. Will's friend had insisted Will not give the newlyweds a cash gift, Will went above and beyond to send them to Europe. This is how it went down:

Will called the friend's agent and had him tell the friend he had an audition in Paris, and the plane tickets were already paid for, and he could take his wife, courtesy of the producers. The agent said the script would be waiting at the hotel. After Will's pal and his new bride arrived in Paris, the agent phoned and said: "The audition's postponed a week, so just stay and enjoy the city!"

Five days later, another call: "The audition's been moved to Rome. They're sending over plane tickets, and you'll find a revised script at your hotel." Finally, after days in Rome and still no audition, Will's friend got suspicious and phone his agent, demanding to know what was up. That's when Will finally contacted his old buddy and told him the truth: that there was no audition. He just wanted him to enjoy a great honeymoon without worrying about the money. Touched and teary-eyed, the guy couldn't stop thanking Will, who cracked: "Hey, don't kid me, you're just bummed you're not getting the movie job!"
