Steve Carell 'helps with pizzeria rush'

Steve Carell

Steve Carell strapped on an apron and helped serve at an under-staffed pizzeria recently.

The actor stopped off at the Hollywood eatery to pick up some dinner and was horrified to see the manager rushing around and looking stressed.

When he discovered the boss had been left short after a worker failed to turn up to his shift, Steve immediately stepped in.

"The star jumped behind the counter, donned an apron and began answering the phone, taking orders from hungry patrons," reports National Enquirer.

The 49-year-old actor stayed to help for 45 minutes, after which he was convinced the mad rush was over. The astounded restaurant owner couldn't believe what had happened and wouldn't stop praising Steve. He even presented the star with a free pizza before he left.

"Take the pizza," he apparently said. "It costs me less than having to pay you!"

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
