Movie and television actor Steve Carell has been compared to Alice Cooper before, including in this look-alikes gallery (viewed below). Additionally, the actor related the incident in which he met Cooper to host Jimmy Fallon during a visit to The Tonight Show to promote Minions: The Rise of Gru.
During their conversation, Fallon showed Carell and Cooper side-by-side photos and commented on their striking resemblance, to which the actor stated, “Yeah, I see it.”
When asked by Fallon if he’d ever met Cooper, the actor recalled, “I met Alice Cooper. I waited on him when I was working in Chicago when I was waiting tables. I was working at a restaurant and he came in and yeah, he was Alice Cooper. He couldn’t have been nicer. Sweetest guy.”
As per etcanada, Fallon countered, “The thing about Alice Cooper, and I’ve met him once before and he could be whatever. He could be like a rock guy who’s like, ‘Whatever man.’ But he is the nicest human. I was like, ‘Oh my god. I love Alice Cooper.’ I just wanted to hang out with the guy.”
“He walks into a room and he’s unmistakably Alice Cooper,” added Carell, then sharing a story of Steven Tyler’s sightings in Boston. But discussion of Cooper’s pleasant behavior came back around, with Carell commenting on a reason he feels Cooper seemed so at ease with his celebrity.
“I think if you’re Alice Cooper, you have to own being Alice Cooper,” said the actor. Word made it back to Cooper after the discussion on The Tonight Show, and tweeted earlier this morning, “Hmmm … what do you think?”
