Will Ferrell kept Kidman laughing

Will Ferrell says Nicole Kidman was obsessed with his butt the first time they met.
The pair star together in the big-screen remake of '60s TV show 'Bewitched' and the comic actor claims their initial meeting was dominated by his behind - which he bared in cult comedy 'Old School'.
Ferrell claims the Australian beauty could barely speak to him because she was in fits of laughter after picturing his nude butt.
She said: "When Nicole and I first met, she said she had seen me in 'Old School' and then she started laughing. I said, 'Are you thinking about my butt right now?' And she said, 'I wasn't, but I'm thinking about your butt right now and it's making me laugh even harder.' We kind of hit the ground running."
Ferrell also claims Nicole loved working with him - because he is so tall. He said the actress, previously married to Tom Cruise, told him he was the tallest man she had ever worked with.
He told Britain's Daily Telegraph Arts and Books magazine: "She said I was the tallest leading man she'd ever worked with, so it was nice for her to have someone to look up to."
