Ferrell appears on Australian news program The Project to interview Prime Minister Gillard. The debate includes jokes about Gillard’s marital status and partner Tim Mathieson, as well as a question about the actor’s split ends:
I suffer from horrible split ends. Would you have any advice for me because this hair’s terrible? It’s like horse hair and I’m at my wits end.
Will, I can give you some very clear advice, and I’m sure Tim would endorse it. You need to get yourself to a hairdresser straight away; you need to spend buckets and buckets of money on in-salon treatments and you need to buy everything that they recommend for you to take home.
