  • Exclusive: Steve Carell and Tina Fey had two of the worst dates ever...


    Make room on the calendar for “Date Night” with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell.

    We spent a lovely evening talking to the comedy duo at the movie’s New York premiere. In the film, they play a bored married couple whose one night on the town becomes a night on the run after a case of mistaken identity turns them into targets.

    There’s a lot of action packed into the caper, which apparently now has Carell thinking of himself as a big action hero.

    “Yes, I am a bona fide action star, and I’m saying it on Fox first,” he told Fox411.

    When informed that his co-star had done the same scenes, only in heels, Carell would have none of it.“I did it in heels. You just didn’t see it. But I wore five-inch stilettos out of empathy and concern for Tina,” he explained.

    When asked for their worst dates ever, Carell and Fey told tales of horror and woe.

    Carell recounted how he “dropped ice cream in my lap, but rather than make a thing of it, I let it melt and dry on my pants. So that was kind of stupid because she saw it happen. Did I think it’d get invisible? It didn’t.”

    Fey topped him, however.

    “Once a guy invited me to climb a mountain, and he fell of the mountain,” she recalled.

    Actually, it sounds like things went even worse for her date.

    “Date Night” is being released nationwide on April 9th.
