Ferrell added: “I called Paul. I go, “Paul, I can’t do it, but something is coming your way.”‘

Jimmy continued with the joke, “You really handsome actors, just do that for Will when he gives up.”
That’s when Ferrell shared, “I bailed… all the time.”
Rudd didn’t let the joke end when she shared sexy stars to help him “because we love him.”

When he landed the cover, Paul said he would get “so much grief” from his friends.
Paul explained: “As it should be. I would. I mean, I’m going to hit it hard. I’m going to own this. I’m not going to try to pretend I’m that humble.
‘I have business cards made. But all my friends will destroy me and I expect from them. And that’s why they’re my friends.’
A good joke: Ferrell added, “I called Paul. I’m going, ‘Paul, I can’t do it, but something’s coming at you.’” The crowd roared with laughter as Fallon said that sounded very ‘clumsy’. Paul then said ‘I showed up for Will’

Jennifer Aniston and Alicia Silverstone also gave him props.
The actor has big plans now that he’s given the title, including private events with his fellow iconic handsome men.
He explained: “I hope now that I will finally be invited to some of those sexy dinners with Clooney and Pitt and [Michael] B Jordan.

“And I think I’ll be on a lot more yachts. I am excited to expand my hunting life. And I’ll probably try to get better at brooding in very soft light. I like to think. I think this is going to help me become more inward and mysterious. And I’m looking forward to that.’
Paul told People that the only person he told about the honor beforehand was his wife of nearly 20 years Julie Yaeger.
Of her reaction to the news, he said: “She was stunned. But you know she was very nice to it. After some giggles and shock, she said, “Oh, they got it right.” And that was very sweet. She probably wasn’t telling the truth, but what is she going to say?’

Since he and Julie have two children together — son Jack, 17, and daughter Darby, 12 — Paul said he thinks of himself above all as a family man.
He admitted: “When I think of myself, I see myself as a husband and a father, as if I am.
“When I’m not working, I just hang out with my family. That’s actually what I like best.’
