Steve Carell now a sexy silver fox, sends netizens swooning

These days, girls aren’t swooning over men rocking hard abs or a sharp suit.

The internet’s latest eye candy is no other than 54-year-old Steve Carell.


The man known for playing dorky characters such as a boss who tries too hard in “The Office” and a middle-aged man with no sex appeal (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin”) is suddenly, well, sexy.

The biggest change is his slicked back silver hair akin to George Clooney’s.

Certainly, this isn’t getting into Carell’s head?

When asked about what he thought of people’s reactions to his latest look, he said, “I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes. It’s just genetic. There’s nothing I can do.”

Of course, the notably modest and low-key actor was joking. “I’m busting with pride,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “That’s very nice.” Niña V. Guno/JB
