Kanye West gushes over Will Ferrell

Kanye West gushes over Will Ferrell

Kanye West says Will Ferrell has "reached walking living breathing god status!".

The 38-year-old Yeezy designer went a tweeting spree on Saturday (27.02.16) to rave about the comedic actor, after he watched Ben Stiller's hit comedy 'Zoolander 2' in which Will reprised his role as the evil fashion genius Jacobim Mugatu.

The tweets - of which there are nine in total - go: "I saw Zoolander 2 for the 2nd time. Will Ferrell has reached walking living breathing god status! His existence is a blessing. Perhaps it was seeing him play the same character from 15 years ago with 15 more years experience.(sic)"

It's unclear whether Kanye has ever met Will, but he went on to compare the 48-year-old actor to the late Hollywood icon Bruce Lee, who was famed for his popular martial arts movies including 'Enter The Dragon'.

The 'Gold Digger' rapper continued: "That showed how sharp and Bruce Lee status he is. We all know Will Ferrell has always been the one!!!"

The star finally ended the homage and thanked Will - whose other credits include 'Anchorman', 'Blades of Glory', 'Step Brothers' and 'Elf' - for the "years" of joy he has brought into his life.

He penned: "I just want to thank Will Ferrell for the years of joy he has brought into my life with amazing comedy. It is so inspiring. Thank you for existing!"
