The Zoolander actor, 56, visited The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday, Feb. 23, and shared the reason why he believes the 28-year-old comedian has become so popular and found himself having such an incredible “moment in time right now.” Spoiler alert: It’s more than just because of his star-studded dating history.
“[Pete’s] an incredibly sweet guy,” Stiller told the radio host. “He’s so personable. He got such a charisma. He’s funny, he’s really funny, but he has become really famous, I think, for—”
Stern then interrupted the actor, adding, “Dating!”
“Yes,” Stiller agreed. “And being on [Saturday Night Live].”
Continuing to compliment his friend, Stiller added that Davidson’s kind personality, natural charm and hard work ethic, as seen on SNL, has left a strong impression on the world and led the King of Staten Island star, who is currently dating Kim Kardashian, to becoming a household name.
