Hates Frat Pack tag

Hollywood actors BEN STILLER, WILL FERRELL and STEVE CARRELL are sick of their media nickname - the FRAT PACK.

Stiller claims the term - given to a group of male actors who have appeared together in a string of successful comedy movies - is "weird" and feels it unnecessary to be given a label.

He tells British radio station Heart FM, "It's such a weird thing that people come up with a name that doesn't really exist and why does everything have to rhyme all the time? If it rhymes does it make it real? Is that it?"

"They don't do it for other things. They don't have the Women Schwimmin do they?

"I think the whole thing about the Frat Pack group is completely fabricated anyway. The group doesn't exist but it rhymes, at least there's that, so it must be true right?" For daily celebrity news updates sign up to our newsletter
