Shooting on Will Ferrell's new movie has angered New York residents.

The 46-year-old actor is currently filming Sleeping With Other People - which he is producing along with Adam McKay - starring Amanda Peet, Natasha Lyonne and Jason Sudeikis and householders in the Upper West Side neighbourhood are annoyed by the fleet of "enormous trucks" that are blocking their driveways.

A source complained: "They've taken up three quarters of the block with 10 enormous trucks. The traffic here is like the president's in town."

According to insiders, Ferrell was even booed when he left the West 81st Street property - which is Rosie O'Donnell's former home - where filming is currently taking place.

The source added to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "[When they came out of the house], there was a mix of cheers and boos. The cheers were mostly for Natasha Lyonne."

The Anchorman actor - who is father to Magnus, 10, Mattias, seven, and Axel, four, with his wife Viveca Paulin - recently admitted he is obsessed with children's building toy Lego.

He said: "I have had moments where I have sat down to help my son build the Millennium Falcon [craft from Star Wars] and have literally told him to leave the room because I have to finish this one part. He can join me later. And I literally build it like for an hour. But then it's like, 'My God, what am I doing?'"
