For some fans of the Twilight franchise – also known as Twi-Hards – news that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson felt like their own personal heartbreak.
Also offering his tears: Will Ferrell.
"What they had was so special," the comedian, 45, deadpanned to Conan O'Brien on Thursday night's Conan. (Watch the video below.) "You don't even know what they had. They were in love, and she just threw it all away."
His tongue-in-cheek concerns continued: "I just don't know if there was anything I could have done to prevent it. And I don't know what it means to the Twilight franchise. I just don't know."

It was supposed to be a friendly affair, but Will Ferrell and Gordon Ramsay got more than they bargained for – the latter ended up in hospital – at a charity soccer game on Sunday that was rougher than anticipated.
The actor, 44, hobbled off with an apparent leg injury, while the celebrity chef, 45, had to be stretchered off and given oxygen after a clattering tackle by former pro player Teddy Sheringham at the annual Soccer Aid game in Manchester, England.
"Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine," Ramsay wrote Monday on Twitter.

In celebration of the announcement of Anchorman 2, look back at the comedian's most hilarious characters

Considering that last year's Oscars were so thumpingly bad – co-host James Franco behaved as if he'd been taken out of the freezer, left on the counter and unevenly thawed – last night's broadcast was a welcome relief.
The strength of the show ultimately rests on the heat of the biggest contests – I doubt Americans were on the edge of their seats wondering whether the cosmically inscrutable Tree of Life could score an upset over the French silent The Artist – but the production looked great and flowed well.
Billy Crystal was hosting for his ninth time, brought on after Eddie Murphy dropped out in November, and it felt no different from his seventh, eighth or (if one were to project) fifty-seventh time.

They're going public!
Kirsten Dunst wasn't shy with the PDA with new beau Garrett Hedlund at the Sundance Film Festival. The two were kissing and hugging at a dinner for Dunst's new movie, The Bachelorette, hosted by Joico and Simple House. The couple danced the night away with friends and fellow attendees, including Will Ferrell, who is one of the comedy's producers, Justin Long and Rashida Jones.
According to a partygoer at the WireImage tent, where the intimate dinner for 40 guests took place, Hedlund didn't really leave his girlfriend's side after the two made their late arrival. They also toasted to the film together.
Adds a source: "Kirsten and Garrett have been spending time together since the holidays. They were friends on the set of On the Road, and now they've grown closer. They spent Christmas together and he feels very strongly about her."

Honestly, who's your favorite Abe?
The Internet is abuzz with a photo of Daniel Day-Lewis in a beard during filming of Lincoln, but he's certainly not the first to channel the 16th American president for Hollywood.
Going back to the silent era, the list is long and varied, including most famously Henry Fonda (beardless in Young Mr. Lincoln). But there are others, including two unlikely portrayers.
Will Ferrell goes for laughs in a Funny or Die video while Hank Azaria did it twice, on The Simpsons and Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.

Steve Carell will get a proper send-off from The Office later this season, sharing his final three episodes with his Anchorman costar Will Ferrell.
Ferrell, 43, will join the NBC sitcom for a guest role in which he plays a branch manager who arrives from the home office and proves just as inept as Carell's Michael Scott, Deadline.com reports.
"We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star, and we turned him into a television star," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. "We are proud to continue The Office's tradition of discovering famous talent, and we hope that once America gets a good look at Will, they'll see what we see: tremendous raw sexuality."

With his animated movie Megamind taking in mega-millions and topping the box office for a second week in a row, what else can Will Ferrell do but welcome the dubious distinction of being named Forbes magazine's "most overpaid" actor?
"Isn't that the whole point?" he asks PEOPLE at the launch of 7-Eleven's "Coffee Cup With A Cause." "I mean, aren't we all striving to be overpaid?"
Apparently, it's not just about making it anymore – it's about making it and then having someone say your overcompensated for doing so.

Eva Mendes and Will Ferrell play an unlikely married couple in their upcoming comedy, The Other Guys. But shooting an improvised argument scene together proved to be no joke.
"Once we got the scene down, we were told to improv," Mendes, 36, told PEOPLE at the movie's Manhattan premiere Monday. "We got into a little tug of war, and I picked up what was supposed to be a prop knife."
Unbeknownst to the actress, "it was actually a carving knife from our meal. I lunged at him, and I was really proud of myself."
Then she realized her mistake.
