Steve's #1 apocalypse need: Toothpaste

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World star Steve Carell shares his apocalypse must haves with SheKnows, and tells us why Ryan Gosling makes this list.

In Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Steve Carell and Keira Knightley form an unlikely friendship after both are unable to spend their last days with loved ones.

So who would Carell pick out of his buds to share his last moments with? FYI, his wife was not an option in this hypothetical.

“Maybe Ryan Gosling,” Steve told SheKnows. “He’s just a cool, fun guy. He’d probably make you feel sort of relaxed because he’s a very chill dude. He could hold me in his strong arms.”

Steve's #1 apocalypse need: Toothpaste

Sounds like a bromance has brewed between the two Crazy, Stupid, Love co-stars! In all actuality, Steve would clearly want his companion to be wife, Nancy, who makes a brief cameo in the film.

When asked what three things he would bring into his apocalypse shelter, Nancy’s needs were clearly considered.

“I would bring a toothbrush, because you have to consider personal hygiene,” Steve said. “I would bring along another toothbrush for my wife. I’m assuming she’s there with me, and a tube of toothpaste. You might as well take care of yourself.”

But if there’s no chance of survival, Steve knows exactly what he’ll be savoring in the end.

“I tend to gravitate to really, really bad-for-you food,” he told us. “I think you eat all the pasta you want, you have that red meat and all the sauces, and all the fried food. And you just don’t care.”

Sounds like a delicious way to go!
