Will Ferrell wanted to skinny-dip in Irish river

WILL Ferrell wanted to go skinny-dipping in the river Liffey.

The 46-year-old actor was keen to jump in the Irish stream during his visit to Dublin last night (09.12.13), and wasn't even put off by the December chill as he vowed to do it "in the buff".

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, he said: "Right about 1am in the morning, if you have the courage to do it, join us."

The funnyman was joined by his co-star Paul Rudd for the 'Anchorman 2' premiere in the capital, who joked that the Irish authorities had banned him from taking in his character Brian Fantana's Sex Panther Cologne into the country.

He quipped: "It has been outlawed by most governments. It really is probably for the safety of most citizens."

Meanwhile, Steve Carell - who plays weatherman Brick Tamland in the cult comedy - hasn't ruled a third film and revealed the cast would consider reuniting in 10 years time.

He said: "We'll see how this one goes. If people like it, maybe 10 years from now we'll do a third."
