Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell says Australia's most infamous bogan Clare Werbeloff may have a future on the screen after watching footage of her famous "eyewitness account" on a shooting.
Appearing on A Current Affair, the Talladega Nights star said Werbeloff's fabricated testimony about a Kings Cross shooting was "pretty good, pretty convincing" — although he suggested her accent might be a bit too thick for international audiences.
"I have no idea what she said," Ferrell said, before asking what a "wog" was and prompting interviewer Ben Fordham to bring the exchange to an abrupt close.
Werbelloff had revealed earlier on in the program that she has received death threats.
"I'm under fire — one lady phoned in [during a radio interview] and said I deserved to be shot and asked how I would feel if I got hit by a bus and someone made money off that," she said.
Werbeloff said she was not seeing the things as a joke and was now "taking it quite seriously".
"It's horrible — it makes me feel like a really bad person … we need to focus on the crime that’s happened," she said.
"I don’t condone violence at all."
Werbeloff, who polarised the country with her controversial and false report about a Kings Cross shooting just one week ago, also apologised to the victim of the incident.
"I'm so sorry — I couldn’t imagine having a gun pointed in your face and being shot," she said.
"I'm sorry that it's come to this and if there's anything I can do ... I'd love to meet with him … it wasn't my intention to make him feel bad."
The northern beaches local said her life had changed dramatically since her bogus report aired on Nine News.
"I am 19 and it's just changed my life … I've got fans and I've got people that hate me and I don't know what to do … I don't know what the future holds," she said.
"Fame not all it's cracked up to be."
