Carell Missing His Virgin Bike
Funnyman STEVE CARELL is fighting for the return of the bicycle he rode in hit 2005 movie the 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN because it rightfully belongs to him. The "idiot bike" his character rode around on throughout the film wasn't a prop - it actually was Carell's own bicycle. He says, "That was my bike. They (the props department) really didn't do anything to it. "It's now the property of the Universal (studios) props department. It just never was returned to me and I'm sure it's somewhere on the Universal lot stowed away in a closet somewhere. "You hear of actors and actresses taking mementoes from film sets; I actually lost something."
