Steve Carell may be known as a funny man, but he's also a dutiful husband.
When it comes to his wife, Nancy Wells, "I tell her that I love her, and I will make her breakfast at times or at least coffee," Carell told PEOPLE at Tuesday's New York premiere of his new movie comedy Date Night. "I will also take out the garbage and empty the dishwasher. She definitely likes that, but let's put it this way, if I didn't do those [chores] – she would not like that!"
Not only is he useful around the house, but The Office star, 47, is also a hands-on dad with daughter Elisabeth Anne, 8, and son John, 5.
