Steve Carell's parents were "creeped out" by his latest movie.
The 52-year-old actor - who plays the role of a convicted murderer in 'Foxcatcher' - has revealed that the movie had a big effect on his elderly parents.
He told Access Hollywood: "I brought the screener home for Christmas and my parents watched it for the first time at their home in Massachusetts, and I got a call from my mum a couple of days later and she said, 'I can't stop thinking about it – it really got inside of me.
"They are 90, so they - it's really resonating with them. I think it creeped them out a little bit."
Meanwhile, Steve - who is known for his comedy roles in films such as 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' and 'Anchorman' - recently revealed that he has "never cared about being taken seriously".
When asked whether he's worried about losing his comic style, he said: "Not really. To me, they are different styles of entertainment, with different methods.
"I've never cared about being taken seriously - I just see myself as an actor.
"Most of my career, I've just taken what I've been offered. I always feel most comfortable as part of an ensemble. Whether it's a comedy or a drama, I like to fit in. It's best not to stick out."
