Steve Carell was left shaken up after a car hit him while he was out riding his bike.
The actor told the story while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and before you begin to worry, the star from The Office is totally fine. He even joked about the incident with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
“I was riding (on a) pretty fast road and I made a turn, and I didn’t see the car behind me, and they hit me from behind. So I went up over the handlebars.
“It’s a weird experience because everything just slows down. I thought, ‘Well, I’m gonna tuck and roll’ and I rolled, and I got up, and I was fine. Luckily everything was fine.”
“The woman who was driving the car jumped out. She was distraught, obviously, and I went over to her, and my bike was sort of stuck under the front of her car, and she’s saying, ‘Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! It’s Steve Carell!’ She was so excited that she hit me. It was really kind of a fun experience, a fun fan encounter.”
Of course, die-hard fans of The Office probably can’t help but think about that time Michael Scott hit Meredith Palmer with his car in “Fun Run,” the first episode of Season 4.
