Introducing your latest crush: silver-haired Steve Carrell

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 every hit 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.

    I’ve always loved Steve. He is definitely rocking the gray hair.

  2. fiorucci says:

    Wow! Yes it really suits him

  3. smcollins says:

    I’m more than to happy to lean into Steve being hot. I always thought he was handsome, but yeah, the silver-gray is definitely working in his favor. And I love his response.

  4. minx says:

    Love, love Steve Carell. He got in great shape for The 40-Year-Old Virgin and has stayed buff since then.

  5. lightpurple says:

    An all-around great guy.

    And to make Sixer happy, he plays the fife and was part of a Revolutionary War re-enactment group with his family when he was a kid. And he owns a general store.

    • EOA says:

      Acton pride! Though the general store is in Marshfield.

      • Kitten says:

        It’s right next to the bakery, right?

        I’ve been finding Steve really attractive for the past couple years. Prior to that I always loved him, but never found him particularly hot.

        The silver hair and the scruff, though? YES please. Also, he always dresses really nice, right? Dude has great style.

  6. Nicole says:

    Love Steve Carrell and I’ve always liked his movies. Yea being a silver fox suits him. Met him once at a screening and he was super nice.
    He’s one of the good ones (don’t jinx me universe)

  7. Lalu says:

    I love him so much. I had no idea he was married to the realtor from The Office! Learned something new.

  8. G says:

    Going to join the chorus here: he’s just wonderful. Always thought he was attractive, and now the grey hair + glasses + great style… Yeah.

  9. third ginger says:

    He looks adorable, and his response is hilarious!

  10. Janetdr says:

    That video is wonderful! Steve looks great! And I enjoyed seeing that bit with Judy Dench too -I spend most of her movies just marveling at how beautiful she is.

  11. Moonlampje says:

    There’s only one silver fox on screen and that is Mark Harmon :D . Sorry, Steve never did it for me. The only one of his movies that I liked was Evan Almighty.

    • brincalhona says:

      Nothing against Mark Harmon but I first saw him playing Ted Bundy when I was a little girl so his foxy locks are all yours

  12. Dal says:

    You are missing out if you have not seen the despicable me movies ! All of them are hilarious !! Can’t wait for the latest

    • Tiffany says:

      Yes they are. Love them and the soundtracks are fantastic as well.

    • JennyJenny says:

      You are SO right!
      My daughter made me watch the first one just last week and I loved it; hilarious! And the Minions were so much fun.
      It’s worth watching; I can’t wait for the new movie!

    • CynicalAnn says:

      I agree. They’re always family movies for us. We even drag our teens to them.

  13. Reece says:

    Now this is the way to wake up in the morning.
    He’s looks so good I don’t need coffee anymore!

  14. Rhiley says:

    I love Steve in anything. I love people who are kind and funny and thoughtful. Michael Scott is one of my favorite people on television- ever. And I love Silver Fox Steve. That said, anyone else think he looks like Ellen? I think it may be the shirt and sweater with sneakers combo. Maybe the smile a little bit too. I don’t know. He looks like Ellen to me.

  15. Cintra.C says:

    I’ve always liked him, and, yes, he is rocking the silver hair.

  16. Blackbetty says:

    Love Steve Carrell!

  17. mee says:

    Always thought he was cute but he does look hot with the silver hair. (wish people would say that about women when they go gray!) He looks like he lost a little weight or got a tan and the hot couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. love him.

    • SW says:

      I’m racking my brains to think of a comparable actress who’s completely gray in the 50-55 age bracket who’s toplining a new/recent film (Jamie Lee Curtis is one, but she’s not headlining anything at the moment, more’s the pity).

      Steve Carrell is great, though. Had a secret crush since seemingly forever.

  18. MrsPanda says:

    Another Steve fan here! I’ve always thought he was cute, and he seems like a genuinely nice & funny guy. He looks great with the new silver ‘do!

  19. frisbee says:

    Is it a sign of ageing when you find palpably nice men really, really attractive – or just maturity?

  20. Kimble says:

    Good grief, no! Love me some silver fox, but Carrell is defo not it!

  21. holly hobby says:

    Wow (and I’m not easily impressed)! For the longest time, Steve Carrell gave out sad sack Cal vibes (Crazy Stupid Love). So when did he get fine overnight? Seriously, he looks great!

  22. Veronica says:

    He looks like Ellen

  23. mander says:

    I’m glad the world is coming around to my opinion. (or am I? it was nice having him to myself) I have had him on my “laminated list” for years. My friends used to laugh at me, but not so much anymore!

    • ravynrobyn says:

      Unbeknownst to you, mander, you were sharing him with me, or was it the other way around?
      LOL. Loved him since I saw “The 40 Year Old Virgin” movie POSTER, even before I saw the movie! Yes, he was sad-sack, and as Michael Scott was…well, you know…but I’ve been MAJORLY
      crushing on him since 2006. So happy and thrilled he’s getting all of the love, appreciation, kudos, etc that he deserves.

      @LALU-his wife Nancy also played the therapist in the birth control support(?) group in “The 40 Year Old Virgin” one of the funniest scenes in the movie. The questions he was asking her (“Is it true that if you don’t use it, you lose it?”) and her expressions were priceless. They seem like a really nice, loving and fun couple.

  24. DesertReal says:

    He’s working the hell outta every shade of that silverfoxy vibe and I’m feeling it.
    Slap some blue eyes on that dude and he could be my husbands twin lol

  25. serena says:

    I adore Steve Carrell, wheter he’s silver haired or not! I’m just waiting for a new movie/tv show/really whatever with him to come out (honestly as music as I like him, I don’t care for Despicable Me).

    • ravynrobyn says:

      I know what you mean, Serena! He’s got the Bobby Riggs movie coming out in mid-September and another movie “Flags of Our Fathers” coming out a couple of months later, thank GOD!

  26. Erica_V says:

    Other than the first season of The Office when his hair plugs were growing in Steve has always been ridiculously handsome. This haircut is fantastic on him.

  27. Katebush says:

    Yay nice to see the love for the silver hair!
    I’m growing out my grey and paying particular attention to anyone with nice silver locks
