Watch Will Ferrell Call Kristen Stewart A Trampire

Last week I kind of flipped my wig a little bit at Fox News, thanks to a headline that dubbed Kristen Stewart a "trampire" due to her affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. My affection for solid puns aside, it seemed like an unnecessarily judgmental and woman-hating term for a woman who had just made a bad but personal mistake. Turns out, I'm not the only one who's upset-- Will Ferrell is right there with me, though he uses that "trampire" term just like Fox News did. It's just that, this time, it's funny. Take a look below.
There's a part of me that recoils for a second and thinks that Ferrell is diminishing what's likely real pain that Kristen Stewart is going through. But as a fan of virtually everything Ferrell does, I can't help but also laugh at the sight of his face crumpled into tears, so I'm going to choose to believe he's making fun of the people who take celebrity news so seriously that they actually would cry about it-- or call Kristen Stewart a "trampire" with a straight face.
If you're wondering why Ferrell is showing up on Conan's couch, he's out promoting the comedy The Campaign, in which he stars with Zach Galifianakis as a pair of North Carolina politicians running for state office. It's also the reason he, Galifianakis and Jon Hamm took on Jon Stewart in an equally funny Daily Show appearance. God bless you, Will Ferrell, for keeping late-night television interesting even years after SNL.
