On the carpet for the premiere of Despicable Me 3, Steve Carell was asked about how he feels about being named the internet’s latest silver fox (“Steve Carell is a Silver Fox and We’re Here For It“; “Move Over, Clooney: Steve Carell Is Our Favorite Silver Fox Now“; others).

And his answer was very on-brand.

“Oh yeah. I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes. It’s just genetic, there’s nothing I can do,” he said, joking. “I’m busting with pride. That’s very nice.”

Most importantly, however, how does his wife feel about it?

“She knows, she knows. You know I think she’s hot. That’s all that matters.”

Steve is married to wife Nancy Carell. They have a son and a daughter together.
