Carell's Dad Hates His Son In The Office

Funnyman STEVE CARELL has alienated his family with his role in US TV comedy hit THE OFFICE - because his father hates watching his son play a stupid boss.

The 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN star plays the character British comedian RICKY GERVAIS made famous in the original The Office - and he admits his father can't bear to watch.

He says, "My dad can't quite stomach watching me on The Office. It's not quite how he wanted his son to turn out.

"I mean, I'm such a complete boob and there are times during the show that I'm obviously putting my foot in my mouth constantly and my dad, he has to get up and leave and make popcorn or something.

"He's like, 'My son's such a jackass.' He can't deal with it."
