(ABCNews)--  While most everyone in the world thinks Will Ferrell is pretty darn hilarious, the actor said his three sons aren't sold on his comedic prowess.

"[I'm] still pretty much dad [at home]," he told ABC News last night at the premiere for "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" in New York City.

In fact, Ferrell joked that Magnus, 9, Mattias, 6, and Axel, 3, aren't all that quick to show off or brag about their famous father.

"I think they'll see some things and laugh occasionally," he continued. "But mostly they are just embarrassed by me."

With that said, Ferrell said he still plans to treat his boys to a nice family vacation for the holidays.

"Im going to take them on a cruise, but i'm not going to let them leave the room," he told reporters at the premiere. "I've got to keep track of them."

While he admits his sons are dealing with the normal balance of "fighting and cooperation" that most brothers go through at their age, they all can agree on what they like to do for fun.

"A lot of sports, a lot of soccer, anytime they can get their hands on an iPad, that's their thing," he added. "We don't have a lot of electronics in the house. We try to keep that at a minimum."

As for the movie everyone's been talking about, the "Anchorman" star said the second film came about because it was just something he and the cast "couldn't deny anymore."

And on why everyone besides his kids loves his character Ron Burgundy, Ferrell told ABC News Radio, "I think in a weird way he represents authority and we're kind of poking fun at those authority types and that's always good to do."
