Will Ferrell appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this week and dropped a bomb on unsuspecting fans - and the host himself.
The two talked about nicknames and full names when Corden asked if Will was ever called William.
"My parents tried to call me Willy, but they said I was too excellent," said the "Anchorman" actor with a straight face when Corden let out a laugh. "So I just became a" will. "
Willy Ferrell doesn't have the same ring as Will Ferrell. On the other hand, not the real name of the actor either.
When Corden asked about whether Ferrell's real name "William Ferrell" was in his passport about a minute after the segment began, the entertainer replied with a surprise he thought was viral.
"OK, here it comes. Getting ready. Viral moment, right here, ”said Ferrell as Corden prepared.
"John William Farrell. It's on the passport, "said the actor when Corden gasped and" Johnny Boy! "Said.
"Johnny Boy. Yes, ”said the actor. "So my father will call me Jehovah's Witnesses occasionally."
Corden said he'll use that name when Ferrell is back on the show.
"I officially think only in" The Late Late Show "will you be JDubs," said the moderator.
Ferrell is one of many celebrities who don't use their real names. Meghan Markle's real full name is Rachel Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's real name is Henry Charles Albert David, Rihanna's nickname is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, Jonah Hill is Jonah Hill Feldstein (his sister Beanie Feldstein uses her last name), and Brad Pitt is actually William Bradley Pitt .
