Will Ferrell Reveals The One Elf Scene That Still Makes Him Cry
Die Hard, Home Alone, and Elf are the three movies that constantly compete for the spotlight around Christmas, so it's not surprise that all three have made headlines this year.
Die Hard recently made headlines when its production company, 20th Century Fox, revealed in a new teaser that, despite detractors, the movie is in fact a Christmas movie.
However, Home Alone caused a stir when Macaulay Culkin teamed up with Google to recreate a number of memorable scenes from the timeless holiday film in a new commercial, or should I say, shattered the internet.
Elf will now automatically receive part of that really lovely attention.
Will Ferrell recently discussed the movie, claiming that even 15 years after its release, he still sometimes gets emotional when he sees a crowd of people singing "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" in Central Park. The movie was the subject of an intriguing fan theory and was chosen as the best Christmas movie of the twenty-first century.
The actor stated in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes:
When Buddy is in the back of the sleigh and everyone is singing in Central Park and there’s enough Christmas spirit to get it lifted off, I’m like, ‘Oh, I can’t let everyone see me cry here at my own movie.- Will Ferrell

Will also shared another of his favorite Buddy stories, and I believe we can all agree that it's one of our favorites as well.
He claimed that it is the scene in which Buddy enthusiastically exclaims "Santa" in Gimbels' department store when he believes he is about to run into the elderly man.
This comes after Radio Times listed the top 20 Christmas movies in the country. I won't give anything away, but I will say that while Elf is present, there have also been a few mistakes.
