Will Ferrell Looks Back on the Success of 'Elf'

Ferrell dishes on "Elf" and his new film "Daddy's Home."

As for 2003's "Elf," Ferrell said he didn't expect it to become the Christmas classic that it is today.

"It's surprising how each year it just gets higher and higher on people's lists," he said. "I wouldn’t have predicted that."

"Running around the streets of New York dressed as an elf, I thought, 'This could be my last movie,'" Ferrell joked. "It went the other way, so I feel so fortunate. I feel so glad that that's become part of the lexicon."

"Daddy's Home" will be released in theaters on Christmas Day.
