Ben Stops by TRL

Ben Stiller premiered Night at the Museum this weekend at the Museum of Natural history in NYC. He also stopped by TRL to promote his family friendly flick. Ben chats it up about retiring his Tom Cruise impression, not being bipolar and his love for playing the drums. Here's more:

Q: Much as we love your wicked Tom Cruise impressions, we've gotta ask: Can you give the poor guy a break and lay off those for a little while?

A: I officially retired my Tom Cruise impression after Tom and I did this MTV thing for "Mission: Impossible II." I love Tom and Katie and we're friendly. I just do it for him in private now. We laugh at each other.

Q: I can understand if this is too personal a matter and you don't want to discuss it, but those reports on the Internet about your bipolar condition...

A: That's not true, and I'm happy to disprove that. It was said in jest in a GQ article, but it's haunted me forever. But for me, it's not like I can go around saying, "Hey, I'm not bipolar!" That'll be a great headline: 'I'm Not Bipolar.'

Q: Anything we may not know about Ben Stiller that you think we should? That's, y'know, true hopefully.

A: I like to play the drums a little bit, for fun. By myself, with headphones on. Like, I've got drums that no one else can hear except me. I don't want to make anybody suffer through that.

The new film opens December 22nd. For now, more of a grayer, goofy Ben talking about his Night at the Museum on TRL so

He is NOT down to earth....I know people who worked with him on his last movie. He is a DIVA. Has FOUR trailers, and called for the golf cart to DRIVE him to set when the door was FIFTY FEET from his trailer. This is the TRUTH. The guy is a turd. I was very disappointed to hear this from my friend.

He looks great! I think better! He does things with Tom in private though? Ugh. Have you noticed that everyone likes TomKat? Why don't the rest of us? Maybe we should.
