Comedian had to get his mum to intervene


Will Ferrell says he hated going to school – because he feared he’d shrink.

The 6ft 3ins comedian was bullied by a teen, who said he had special powers.

‘He threatened to put shrinking powder on me and I believed he had the ability to do it,’ he tells the Daily Record.

‘He had a vial of something and said, “This is shrinking powder. You better watch it.”

‘Eventually, my mum marched me over and told the kid to tell me it wasn’t real.’
