NYGossipGirl recently had the pleasure of chatting with Steve Carell via Skype about his new film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
The film tells the story of a man who finds himself alone after his wife leaves in a panic after news erupts of an asteroid about to hit the Earth. He decides to take a road trip to reunite with his high school sweetheart and finds comfort in a neighbor (Keira Knightley) who helps him on his journey.
To say this was our favorite interview to date is an understatement. Carell is not only hilarious in front of the camera, but behind it as well.
Check out the interview below where Carell talks about what he would do if he only had a few weeks left on earth, whether or not he’ll come back to The Office and the status of Anchorman 2!
NYGG: Can you talk about that opening scene and filming it with your wife on your anniversary?
Carrell: Yeah, it was literally our wedding anniversary. She’s playing my wife and we get the news of the end of the world and she pulls out of the car. She also shots me this look, which frankly, I’m not unfamiliar with. It’s a scary, dagger eye look. It was fun, though. It was nice to spend our anniversary together.
NYGG: If there were only 2-3 weeks left before the end of the world, where would you go and what would you hope to find?
Carrell: Certainly, I would be foraging for junk food. Things like Twinkies and Ho-Hos. Nutrition is not [important], who cares.
NYGG: What would your playlist be like?
Carrell: Maybe to actually bring it up a little bit, some Sheryl Crow or maybe some Taylor Swift, to feel a little fuzzy inside.
