Move Over, Clooney: Steve Carell Is Our Favorite Silver Fox Now

"It's just genetic. There's nothing I can do."

Let’s get one thing straight: Steve Carell has always been a babe.

But apparently it took his recent leap into silver fox-dom for the internet at large to notice.

Carrel has been sporting his new look on both sides of the pond while on a press tour for “Despicable Me 3.” Here he is looking outrageously dashing at the premiere on Saturday in Los Angeles:

Entertainment Tonight asked Carell about his newfound fox-dom at the film’s premiere on Saturday, to which he gave an unsurprisingly hilarious response.

“I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes,” he said. “It’s just genetic. There’s nothing I can do.” He then admitted, “I’m bursting with pride. That’s very nice.”

LOL. To be clear, Carell’s been sporting salt-and-pepper locks for a while now. Here he is looking a bit less clean cut earlier this year at the Golden Globes.

Less shaven, equally handsome.

But by going full-blown gray he has officially knocked a certain someone out of the top spot for most handsome silver fox in Hollywood.
