Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg went on a selfie spree with their Irish fans

The two stars have been in town this week for the premiere of their new film.

LAST NIGHT WAS the Irish premiere of new comedy Daddy’s Home, featuring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Both stars were in town for the red carpet at Dublin’s Savoy Cinema, following a night out at The Blind Pig cocktail club.

(Ferrell said he was “a little hungover” during an interview yesterday with Dermot and Dave on Today FM.)

But they’d recovered enough to get their selfie game on with (rough estimate) one zillion Irish fans.

The selfies started earlier in the day…

Continued outside their hotel…

And even took place during media interviews…

They took selfies with practically everyone…

They stood in the rain to take more (okay, while other people took them)…

Mark Wahlberg looked… a tiny bit afraid?

Or at least, bewildered by all the enthusiasm…

Where did you get those lines on your face? “UHHHGH… Ireland, don’t talk to me”

Anyway, he’d recovered by the time he got inside…

Will Ferrell looked cheerful throughout. So cheerful in fact, he wouldn’t wrap his scarf properly. What if his mam saw him?

Seriously. It was chilly out there…

He looks remarkably happy for a man with a cold neck, doesn’t he?

It all looked very fun. If you haven’t got a selfie with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg yet, what are you doing with your life?

(If anyone spots them around town, let us know:
