Steve Carell has said he jumped at the chance of starring in an end of the world film, because he was haunted by the script.

The actor, 49, stars with Keira Knightley in bitter-sweet movie Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World.

"I read the script and could not stop thinking about it. It haunted me. It was funny, sweet, emotionally intense at times, and a story that I hadn't seen," the Anchorman star said.

Keira, 27, who recently got engaged to Klaxons keyboard player James Righton, was instantly intrigued by the script.

"There are a lot of films made about the end of the world but I'd never seen one like this," she said.

Keira has said during a real-life apocalypse she would "drink an awful lot", adding: "I wouldn't want to be sober at the end of time" if the end of the world came.

Steve added: "I would eat a lot of junk food... I would purchase cupcakes and brownies."

Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World is in cinemas this weekend.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
