Steve Carell Helps Out at Pizzeria
Posted by Adam
STEVE Carell is one down-to-earth star!
According to a National Enquirer report, the actor strapped on an apron and helped serve at an under-staffed pizzeria recently.
The Enquirer says Steve stopped off at the Hollywood eatery to pick up some dinner and was horrified to see the manager rushing around and looking stressed.
When he discovered the boss had been left short after a worker failed to turn up to his shift, Steve immediately stepped in.
“The star jumped behind the counter, donned an apron and began answering the phone, taking orders from hungry patrons,” reports the Enquirer.
Steve, 49, stayed to help for 45 minutes, after which he was convinced the mad rush was over. The astounded restaurant owner couldn’t believe what had happened and wouldn’t stop praising Steve. He even presented the star with a free pizza before he left.
“Take the pizza,” he apparently said. “It costs me less than having to pay you!”
Steve recently insisted he is an “everyman” star and he still does his own shopping at the supermarket.
“Listen, I’m everyman. I take the garbage out. Roll bins to the curb. Separate recyclables. No personal assistant. It’s what I know to do, and I do it,” he said.
“I go to the supermarket. We were out of nonfat vanilla Coffee-mate, so I ran in, and people say hello to me. Some guy pushing a cart nods to me and says, ‘Nice.’ ”
