Steve Carell Admits ‘It’s Just Easy for Me to Not Work’

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Steve Carell may be loved by his fans, who adore him in films like Anchorman and Crazy, Stupid, Love, but surprisingly the actor doesn’t think he’s all that funny.

“I never thought of myself as funny. I don’t feel like I’m great at cocktail conversations. I don’t hold court,” Carell told GQ for the magazine’s Men of the Year issue. “I don’t take up a lot of space. I’m not the life of the party. I’m not the guy telling jokes. And I never was.”

Carell, 52, also touched on the fact that he spent much of the year with his family, not working.

“I’ve found I’m very good at doing nothing,” he told the magazine. “I don’t want to quit. I don’t feel like retiring. But it’s just easy for me to not work. It’s nice to be able to help out at home, with my wife and kids.”

Foxcatcher, which also stars Channing Tatum, hit theaters last weekend and has been earning Carell some Oscar buzz playing John du Pont in a darker role than fans are used to seeing from the Office funnyman.

“I think with anyone who seems to be content and well-adjusted, which I think I am, there’s a need to find a darkness or a wound,” Carell said. “Judd Apatow — I’m gonna misquote him — but he spoke to that in regards to me: that he could never seem to find my wound.”

Olivia Wilde On Love, the Benefits of Aging, and Her Post-Baby Body

Monica Schipper/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) — Olivia Wilde has a lot of love in her life.

The House and The Longest Week star, 30, has been engaged to actor Jason Sudeikis since last January and the couple just welcomed their son Otis this past April.

“Love is what has unlocked the happiest parts of my life,” Wilde told ABC News. “Not only falling in love with my fiance, but then having a child and falling in love on a completely different level. I just have found my sources of inspiration in life and it all comes from witnessing love.”

Love was the theme of Tuesday night’s launch of Revlon “LOVE IS ON” campaign in New York City, where Wilde is a celebrity ambassador.

“I really like the message that Revlon is sending with ‘LOVE IS ON,'” Wilde said. “It’s encouraging people to find love in their lives and be inspired by love.”

Wilde added that her inspirations come from seeing love in Haiti before and after a major earthquake and how that got the people there through, and seeing marriage equality rise to the surface in 2014.

Representing Revlon, Wilde understands as an actress, she’s under the microscope more than most, even as a natural beauty.

“I really think people have become more realistic about what beauty is and how varied it is,” she said. “For me personally, I’ve become less concerned with all of that, that’s a wonderful part about aging, your priorities sort of fall into line. I enjoy getting dressed up. I love putting on makeup and going out, but the pressure to feel pretty all the time, I do not feel.”

Wilde, who had a baby just 7 months ago, touched on the pressures a celebrity has to bounce back and look amazing again right after giving birth.

“There are bizarre and unrealistic expectations placed on new mothers about what they should do with a body that’s just produced a human being,” she said. “But I try not to let that get to me. For me, it’s just about feeling good. That’s just what kind of has gotten me through. Do I feel good? Yes. Do I feel like I need to work on myself a little bit? Yeah. That’s all a part of self love.”

Danica McKellar Marries Lawyer Scott Sveslosky

Photo by Gregg DeGuire/WireImage(NEW YORK) — Actress Danica McKellar wed lawyer Scott Sveslosky during a beachfront ceremony in Kauai, Hawaii, on Saturday, according to People Magazine. The two got engaged in July.

In September, the former Dancing With the Stars and Wonder Years star shared with ABC News details of her upcoming nuptials.

“Wedding planning has been underway for a while,” she said, adding that “perhaps” this year she’ll be sharing pictures from it on social media. “It will be a really small wedding, because we’ve both been married before, we’ve both had big weddings and this time around it’s really just about us.”

This is the second marriage for McKellar, who split from her husband of two years, Michael Verta, in 2012.

Sheryl Crow Auctioning Cowboy Boots to Benefit Feeding America

Erika Goldring/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Sheryl Crow is ready to give you the shoes – make that, cowboy boots – right off her feet.

The 52-year-old singer is auctioning some of her most prized possessions on eBay to benefit the nonprofit group Feeding America, which Crow has been a part of for the past decade.

“I’ve toured for 20-something years, and I’ve collected a lot of stuff over the course of that time,” Crow told People. “I’ve got over 80 pairs of cowboy boots or boots in general, and I’ve got quite a few pairs of blue jeans. There’s going to be a lot of [Ralph Lauren], some Rag & Bone, some Paige; some great name brands that people will be able to get on the cheap, for a good cause!”

The cause is close to Crow’s heart.

“When I was living in Los Angeles I started working with Feeding America on a campaign,” the nine-time Grammy winner said. “I wrote a song for them that Jason Mraz and I duetted on.”

Since then, she has become more hands-on, even volunteering at the group’s food banks in Nashville, Tennessee, with her two adopted sons, Wyatt, 7, and Levi, 4.

“On our first trip to the food bank, my son and I sat down next to a man,” Crow recalled to People. “The guy who ran the food bank came over and gave him a pair of boots. My son Wyatt said, ‘Why did he give you boots?’ And the man said, ‘Cause I didn’t have any boots.’ And my son said, ‘Why don’t you have any boots?’ And he said, ‘Cause I can’t get a job.’ And my son said, ‘Why can’t you get a job?’ And the man said, ‘Cause I don’t have any boots.’ For three weeks, my son talked about that experience, of not understanding that having food and a job for some people is a real luxury.”

Crow’s auction runs through Dec. 11 on eBay’s Charity Shop

“It makes you feel so grateful to have what you have and to be able to help someone else, the feeling that I get from that is much bigger than anything else that I could experience,” Crow said. “It just matters that we take care of each other in our lives.”

Angelina Jolie Says Directing Hubby Brad Pitt Is ‘Not Easy’

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Angelina Jolie serves as writer, director and star of the upcoming film, By the Sea. It also marks the first time she’s worked with new hubby Brad Pitt since the two tied the knot in August, and she reveals in this month’s issue of DuJour magazine that it presented some challenges for the newlyweds.

“The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad,” the 39-year-old actress confesses. “It’s hard, dramatic material, and we’re balancing.”

Jolie adds, “It’s a heavy film, and it’s not easy for us. But even as you struggle through it, you’re in the trenches together and you don’t expect it to be easy.”

“We’re challenging each other,” she tells the magazine, “and that’s a really good thing.”

Although Jolie has hinted in the past that she may retire from acting and focus her attention on directing full time, she sounded less certain when she spoke to Variety recently.

“I’ll do a few more,” she revealed, before noting, “I’m happier when I get to put a camera on another actor and watch them do great work.”

Jolie and Pitt play a troubled married couple who travel the country together in By the Sea, which is set for a 2015 release.

“Orange Is the New Black” Star Won’t Face Charges Following Arrest

Jill Greenberg for Netflix(NEW YORK) — Orange Is the New Black actress Taryn Manning will not face charges following her arrest in New York Tuesday for criminal contempt.

TMZ
reports a judge determined Manning, who plays inmate Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett on the hit Netflix series, violated a restraining order by threatening to kill a former friend through social media and by text message.

However, ABC News subsequently confirmed that the district attorney’s office declined to prosecute her.

Manning, 36, appeared to dispute on Twitter at least some of the information in the TMZ report. She tweeted, “Oh! That’s what happened huh? Id say get the ALL the facts correct before any posting @TMZ or tell the whole story. Let’s get it right!”

She continued, “There are no charges against me. This is just further harassment. It is troubling that the system can be used to abuse the actual victim.”

Manning later wrote, “I could go on any media outlet and tell the real story but I’d rather save my time and energy for things that really matter. All will unfold.”

TMZ notes the friend, Jeanine Heller, was arrested in September after, authorities said, she violated a protection order by attempting to contact Manning.
