Stiller tells Parade magazine that even though hes made his name as a comedy star, he couldnt tell a joke if you paid me.
As he puts it, I have this weird thing where I cant remember a joke. I cant even take the pressure of having somebody tell me a joke. I worry that Ill laugh at the wrong thing or miss the punch line.
Because Stiller cant tell a joke, hes very grateful when fans tell him hes funny.
In his words, I appreciate it when people tell me that Ive made them laugh. Its not a nuisance when somebody comes up to me on the street. Its a really great feeling.
Stillers latest movie, A Night At The Museum, opens December 22.
