Steve Carell: Ricky Gervais Hates Me

Funny man Steve Carell is convinced that Ricky Gervais hates him because of his "modest personality," and there's the whole leaving The Office thing.

Steve recently announced that he's leaving Ricky's hit show The Office, and has been paranoid ever since that his once pal now loathes him.

When told Ricky hates people who project an “ever-so-humble shtick” during an interview with the Observer Magazine, Steve laughed and said: “Oh dear, he probably hates me.”

He added, “I don’t know how other people perceive the lives of actors but mine is fairly ordinary. I go to work, I come home, I put my kids to bed. If I’m home in time for dinner, I have dinner and then it’s bedtime.”

When Steve first announced that he's leaving the show, Ricky joked, "I'd be lying if I said he should do more. He shouldn't. He should move on, continue to do great work, and buy a new house every time The Office is repeated somewhere."

Do you think the show will survive without Steve? Will you continue to watch it?
