Steve Carell - Steve Carell Can't Believe He's Keira's Leading Man

Steve Carell can't believe that his career has progressed so much that he now gets to be a Hollywood leading man and share screen time with the likes of Keira Knightley and Julianne Moore. In an interview with, Carell remarked "How did I end up in films with people like Keira Knightley and Julianne Moore? All these beautiful leading ladies and me-it's kind of shocking." Carell will soon be starring in 'Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World'.
There are, however, other aspects of fame that he has taken to quite easily. "I don't mind having someone else mow my lawn," he explains. "But I enjoy vacuuming. We just got a cordless vacuum cleaner that's the best! It's so handy. And recently I cleaned the gutters. If it's something I can actually do and I have the time, I'll do it." In fact, Carell seems to embody the life of the down-to-earth movie star, who hasn't yet allowed fame go to his head. He and his wife reserve Sundays for family time, saying "[The kids] are 8 and 11, and they still like hanging out with us, so we're taking advantage of it. I know it won't always be that way."
'Seeking a Friend For The End Of The World' is due out next month (July 2012). It tells the tale of a man left alone, when his wife panics and leaves as an asteroid nears Earth. When asked what he'd do if he thought his days on Earth were numbered, Carell answered "My thoughts gravitated toward food, like a very good pizza. We've had deep-dish delivered from Giordano's, Gino's East, and Lou Malnati's in Chicago. You can just call and have it shipped to you on dry ice."
