Will Ferrell named worst autograph signer

December 18th, 2007 // 77 Comments

Will Ferrell was officially named the worst celebrity autograph signer. Despite having a huge fanbase the comedy actor hates signing autographs, Steve Cyrkin, the editor and publisher of Autograph magazine, told Reuters:

“What’s so frustrating about Will Ferrell being the worst autograph signer this past year is that he used to be so nice to fans and collectors, and a great signer. What makes him so bad is that he’ll taunt people asking for his autograph.”

Holy crap, is Will Ferrell wearing a cowboy hat? That is hilarious. Seriously, where does this guy come up with stuff? I don’t care that he pisses in his fan’s faces and won’t sign autographs. Walk around with a cowboy hat like that and you’re A-okay in my book. Aw, man, I hope he gets gratuitously naked in his next movie. That gag never gets old!

    so he realizes “the top” sucks because now he’s forced to repeat himself forever and kiss the asses of people he probably despises and who now control his career. oops! comedy-as-lifestyle isn’t so cool when you’re ready to do something serious or when you no longer feel like dancing to their music. maybe jim carrey and will can overthrow the powers that be, but probably not.

    sorry will. maybe you can make some more subtly anti-christian movies and shame yourself for more money. that’s about whatcha got left, bro.

    Kate? How about Bill cosby? Yeah.. He’s great. What about Dane Cook? Hagh! That’s what I thought.

    No, I’m kidding they both blow.

    Let’s see, who’s funny: David Cross. Richard Pryor! Sarah Silverman. Bob Odenkirk. George Carlin. Henry Rollins (Snake-man). Patton Oswald (Brilliant). Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Judd Apatow. Jon Stewart. John C. Reilly’s. George Lopez (Great timing). I could keep going.

    Will Ferrell is seriously the most un-talented person in Hollywood, I’m so glad to hear that this no-talent, un-funny worthless POS is also a DOUCHEBAG!

    Sometimes he is funny but most of the time he is a fuckin arrogant prick.

  11. he should be drawn, quartered and whipped within an inch of his life!

    have you seen the trailer for his next “movie”?

    GHASTLY doesn’t begin to cover it.

    WIll Ferrell was with his wife and two sons today shopping at the Barnes and Noble bookstore and he was super nice and gracious to my 9 year old daughter. I am tired of all the negative crap, some “fans” are annoying. We were very respectful to him and he couldn’t have been nicer.

    Look at this hat, it looks terrible. I bet if you buy this hat, you get a free bowl of soup! Oh, it looks good on you though…

  14. Jessica

    Yeah, I heard that he was a douchebag in real life. That’s too bad, I liked him.

    You guy’s are crazy, Will Ferrell is awesome, Adam Sandler is definately awesome!!!The Longest yard rules!!!!Will Ferrell is pretty dar awesome also, I just got an autographed Taladega Night’s (Rickey Bobby) autograph, because my brother worked on set with him recently, and was very nice about the whole thing, Kudos to Will!!!!! Yes his autograph is very messey!! LOL

    Ferrell is pathetic. So not funny. Nothing more pathetic when someone thinks they’re funny and they’re not. Ferrell galivants around more rancid than a dead horse attempting to foist his zero humor on the public and no offense to the average Joe or Josephine….., but people laugh, as if he’s funny, not to mention not arrogant..

    Will, you’ve had more than your fifteen seconds of fame……, disappear.

    Post 47 is Adam Sandler.

    BOO!

    Autograph magazine bases its so-called “best” and “worst” signers list on the experiences of just a few professional collectors, people who follow stars around to get their signatures and then turn around and sell it for profit. Can’t blame
    stars for not signing for that lot. Autograph magazine is not credible. Its annual “best of and worst of ” list is just a shrewd way to get media attention.

    Will Ferrell actually DOES sign for fans through the mail. He signed for me, so I’m speaking from personal experience. He isn’t rude to his fans, just to dealers.

    Ol’ Billy-Bob Will learned something this past year: He ain’t funny. Someone explained to him that maybe the first time he ran almost naked in a movie, flailing his arms, it was funny – - the fifth, or sixth time, c’mon. Now Ferrell’s bitter.

    Hey, Willy? I’m kidding of-course. The nudity is the only thing you have going for you. Honestly, I’ve never understood your stardom. You were never funny on SNL. I mean, Saturdat Night Live hasn’t been funny in over a decade but, you, you were horrible. Breaking character by laughing in ever skit. Fuck, man, you really suck. Do you know that?”

    Yeah you’re right, he’s not funny. That’s why he was the highest paid actor on SNL!!! But good thing you and all the other pricks on here no more then all of his six million fans. Thanks for you’re opinions, but no one cares.

    You know who is funny, Chris Farley God rest his soul….I think Hollywood would be a little better if he was still alive.

    HE was also named worst actor. The cowboy hat is not a joke its PSEUDO-American Expressionism that is it is a revelation. If you read his biography on WIKI it says that his relative was the orginator of BLUE-EYED SOUL as if it had to be bleached. That would mean white supremacy of the OLD SOUTH “GEORGIA on my mind” is one of their songs who but an OKIE would have Georgia on their mind. THINK ABOUT IT. he aint heavy he is my brother is bout the bionic man form OJAI and th orange revolution.Did you see his expression towards the African man in ELF .

    I know he’s actually a prick in real life.. my x girlfriend was an extra on Night at the Roxbury, back when he wasn’t even known and just on Saturday Night Live.. he was a jerk even there on the set when some extras tried to talk to him – very sad :( Imagine what monster he’s become now..

    This post is very biased and very ignorant. I’m on Ferrell’s side anyway. I hate how ‘celebrities’ can’t just do the job they love without ‘fans’ harassing them and constantly demanding more. What good is a signature?
