Steve Carell discusses being a 'stud muffin' with Jimmy Fallon

Welcome to the silver fox club.

Posted on

As dictated by the Internet, Steve Carell is hot now. “You’re a funny human being, but I wanna say that you’re also a stud, you’re a stud muffin,” Jimmy Fallon told his guest on Tuesday’s Tonight Show in recognizing the comedian’s newfound sex symbol status.

Fallon whipped out headlines from Cosmopolitan, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, and more obsessed with Carell and the fact that he’s apparently now more appealing than George Clooney. “My wife finally said she’s in love with me. It’s exciting,” the Despicable Me 3 voice actor joked.

He also played along when Fallon asked if he’s part of a silver fox club that includes Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper. “There’s a bracelet you get, and mine says Steve and on the other side of the bracelet it says ‘hunk of man meat,'” he joshed.

This comes after Entertainment Tonight asked Carell for his reaction to all the internet love he’s been getting on his look. “I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes,” he joked on Saturday. “It’s just genetic. There’s nothing I can do.”

Fallon also discovered that Carell is great at playing his Blow Your Mind game, in which both gents were strapped in front of confetti canons and asked true or false questions regarding strange statements. The late-night host got a few too many shots to the face when faced with Carell’s knowledge of crazy factoids.
