Ben Stiller has been on our screens (and had us in stitches) for years! Here are the reasons why we love him...

1. Ben was hilarious as angry Tommy (The Screamer) in Friends, a personality trait which he kept well hidden from Rachel. For a while anyway…!

2. Stiller took on the mighty Robert De Niro (and Mr Jinx) in Meet the Parents. You can milk anything with nipples, don’t you know.

3. Ben Stiller’s quirky characters in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and Tropic Thunder had us in stitches.

4. And don’t even get us started on that zipper scene in There’s Something About Mary. Ouch! So embarrassing…

4. It doesn’t get much better than Ben Stiller being ‘Trent McJivvers’ – the sixth member of the Backstreet Boys for a 1998 MTV awards skit.

5. He’s been married to actress Christine Taylor for 15 years – an eternity in Hollywood terms – and they have two kids together…

6. Who all attended the premiere of Zoolander 2 with Ben, who was upstaged by his son’s ‘Blue Steel’ impression!

7. Ben Stiller is really, really, ridiculously good looking and not only stars in, but directs Zoolander 2, which is in cinemas now!
