Will Ferrell stole bus during Anchorman filming

Dec 17 2013, 5:36am CST | by

Will Ferrell stole a bus while filming 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'.

The 46-year-old actor almost ended up behind bars after he hijacked the single-deck vehicle with his co-stars and whizzed around Atlanta, Georgia, the stunt attracted the attention of police who followed them around the city.

He recalled: "On a lunch break, we stole a city bus, and we were just driving it through the streets of Atlanta and the cops were chasing us. It was art imitating life. We were gone for four hours, and then we hopped out of the bus and said, 'Hey, it's us,' and everyone had a big laugh."

Meanwhile, the funnyman admits he was surprised by Kanye West, who has a cameo appearance in the sequel, and his passion for comedy, and admired his creativity and dedication to his career.

Speaking to the Confidenti@l column in the New York Daily News newspaper, he explained: "That was really fascinating because he came on the set and he was the exact antithesis of what you thought he'd be. He was such a fan of comedy, he was almost reverential and quiet around us.

"He stayed for two days. He wanted to hang around the whole time, but he's probably the most prolific, creative person I've ever been around, because while he was off set he was on the phone talking about a photo shoot, he was writing down lyrics. His mind is constantly working."

However, he recently admitted the 'New Slaves' rapper caused a scene on the set after he refused to turn down his music and reduced a young intern to tears.

He said last week: "Even when you're trying to film, he's playing the tracks. They're loud too. We got a scared 18-year-old intern to ask him to turn them down."

View Photo Gallery Nudity on-screen is no new thing, obviously. Way back in 1934, Tarzan and His Mate engaged in a very lusty, full-on naked swim, which shocked Depression era audiences everywhere. But that’s the thing, nudity in movies is usually about sex. Not so when comedic actors do it. They use their un-yoga’d, un-tanned, non-waxed naked bodies as a tool for being funnier. Take Ja ...
