Ben Stiller: Sad Situation

One day on the set of Along Came Polly, Ben Stiller was bit by a ferret which he was holding. "He did this crazy turn around thing and he literally attached himself to my chin and then he didn't let go," Stiller recalled. "He was holding onto my chin. I had to get a rabies shot."

During a talk show appearance some time later, Stiller joked that all ferrets should be killed. Ferret lovers were not amused and Stiller was promptly swamped with complaints. During another guest appearance (on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien") some time later, Stiller produced a ferret and serenaded it with a song -- Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be The Hardest Word":

What have I got to do to make you love me
What have I got to do to make you care
What do I do when lightning strikes me
And I wake to find that you're not there

What do I do to make you want me
What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word

It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word...

[Ben Stiller was once asked to name the worst injury sustained during the filming of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. "The worst injury," he said, "was that I hit my wife in the face. Twice."]
