“Steve Carell is a lovable guy. He raises the corners of your mouth and causes stitches in your sides, and he even has the acting power to break your heart a little (think “Crazy, Stupid, Love”). But the funnyman may have just become even more lovable following an alleged 45-minute impromptu pizza shift at a pizzeria in North Hollywood,” according to the Gothamist.
“Numerous news reports have claimed Carell hopped behind the counter of his favorite NoHo pizza shop to help out the owner during a brief period of understaffed chaos. Carell reportedly arrived at the shop to pick up his pie and noticed the owner frantically managing all tasks since an employee that day was a no-show.
The 49-year-old actor allegedly strapped on an apron and spent 45 minutes taking orders and answering the phone. His short stint as a pizzeria employee even earned him a free pie. Contactmusic.com reports the owner stated, “Take the pizza. It costs me less than having to pay you.”
