Steve Carell: I feel "lucky" to be busy; "Anchorman 2" is "ridiculous"

Actor Steve Carell, who voices Gru in “Despicable Me 2” out nationwide July 3, spoke with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Kate Bolduan and Michaela Pereira on New Day about voicing the animated character, feeling “lucky” to be busy and starring in other upcoming features “The Way, Way Back” and “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.”

“I’ve waited my entire life to be busy,” Carell said. “Whenever I hear actors complain about being busy, I think ‘shut up.’ Because you do, you wait to be successful or to be able to work. And yea, I’m extremely lucky.”

New Day airs weekday mornings from 6-9am ET on CNN.
