Will Ferrell loves stripping off on screen - because it helps starving children.
The comic actor, famous for showing off his body in his movies, has joked that UNICEF receive a sum of money every time he strips off.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I actually have that written into scripts now because it's tied in with UNICEF. I actually have it put in to my contract.
"Every time I strip down to my underwear some money goes to the charity so it's kind of my way of helping, making a contribution. Plus, it brings the ladies in. The ladies love it." he quiped.
However, Ferrell can't decide whether or not he likes the fact he spends half his life being laughed at in a state of undress.
He mused: "I'm not as comfortable as you would think, but after three takes you can do anything. You just kind of forget you're standing there half naked."
Will also insists his wife isn't always impressed by his semi-naked antics.
He confessed: "I've been doing it for a few years now and she's very much over it. She's like, 'OK, you're doing the underpants thing again? Can you go and take the trash out when you're done?'"
