Funnyman Will Ferrell may be driving his wife away — with his crazy obsession for golf!
Sources said the 51-year-old comic has been a missing link when it comes to his wife, Swedish actress Viveca Paulin, after his last movie Holmes & Watson landed in the rough.
“It was a massive flop,” said a source close to the former Saturday Night Live cutup. “The reviews have Will hiding from the critics on the course.”
The film tanked at the box office and earned Will a humiliating nomination for a Worst Actor Golden Raspberry Award.
To add insult to injury, the movie review site Rotten Tomatoes savaged the film.
“The lowest and vilest alleys in London do not present a more dreadful record of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson than does Holmes & Watson,” the site said.
The insider snitched: “Will was so shaken over it, some of us feel like he’s afraid to get back to work. He’s drowning his sorrows in endless rounds of golf at the Wilshire Country Club.”
According to sources, the Anchorman star has hit the links thinking he can get inspiration from other comedy writers!
“He thinks he can get his mojo back by swinging with the other funnymen in his foursome,” the insider tattled.
Unfortunately, his dawn-to-dusk rounds of golf may have wiped the smile off 49-year-old Viveca’s face, according to sources.
“She understands Will being sensitive about his reviews,” a source said. “But she’s not ready to be a golf widow.”
