Steve Carell is worried his fellow 'Office' star Ricky Gervais wouldn't like his modest personality.

Steve Carell worries Ricky Gervais hates him.
The actor - who recently announced he is quitting the American version of Ricky's sitcom 'The Office' - is paranoid his comic contemporary doesn't like him because of his modest personality.
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."
The 48-year-old star also doesn't understand why people are interested in him because he thinks he is "ordinary".
Steve - who has two children, daughter Elizabeth, nine, and six-year-old son Johnny, with wife Nancy Walls Carell - said: "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."
Despite his apparently mundane existence, Steve wouldn't change his life in anyway.
He explained: "It's not like I'm a wallflower. I think I'm fairly average. I don't attempt to stand out in any way. I'm not out there. I'm not somebody who's constantly entertaining, I'm not the life of the party. But on the other hand, I am at the party."
