I’m not even going to pretend this post has a point other than to openly salivate over Steve Carrel’s new look. It’s not really a new look, it’s just a more matured look, replete with silver hair. Steve is out and about promoting the latest installment of the Despicable Me franchise, Despicable Me 3. The movie does not interest me… or it didn’t, until now. I couldn’t sleep and was on my phone when I came across headlines about Steve looking good. I kind of go for that clean-cut, preppy thing and I’m wildly attracted to a sense of humor so really, I’ve always found Steve appealing. But I was not prepared for these – OMG! Like a single-malt scotch, he’s just getting better and smoother with age (I was going to include ‘richer’ but I don’t want to appear shallow). Like me, the internet did not miss the fact that silver-fox Steve could peel the paint off a wall:

Now add ^^ that(!) to the fact that he’s been a devoted husband to Nancy for 22 years and a doting dad to his two kids.

Steve, of course, caught wind of the world’s collective swooning and responded in typical Steve fashion, “I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes. It’s just genetic. There’s nothing I can do.” In a more serious addendum he said “I’m bursting with pride. That’s very nice.” Like I said, I don’t really have anything else to add news-wise. When you google Steve currently, pretty much everyhit is “Holy crap, Steve Carrell is hot!” so let’s just lean in to that, shall we? Because Steve seems like a nice guy and I don’t think I have ever heard a diva story about him so I couldn’t be happier that the nice guy is now a full-fledged heart-throb. Seriously, I keep clicking back on these shots and my breath catches every.single.time.

Steve and Kristen Wiig appeared on Graham Norton to promote the movie as well. To make sure Steve’s head didn’t get too big over his new status, Graham took him down a notch with a photo of Steve at 20 sporting a porn-stache:

Not going lie – I still would.
