On Friday, June 15, the 50-year-old visited The Talk to discuss her new Apple series The Morning Show which stars Steve, 56, as well as Reese Witherspoon. “I heard there was a secret crush on one of your cast members that all of the ladies loved,” guest cohost Vanessa Williams asked the actress.
“Yes. That was Steve Carell,” the Friends alum admitted. “He’s like a silver fox now. He just came in, and no one expected that. Everyone was so cute. And he’s so shy, and fantastic.”
“He gets better with age,” she added. The Office star has been married to his wife Nancy since 1995. They share two kids — Elisabeth, 18, and John, 15. And while the A-lister is currently single, she doesn’t exactly have a freed-up schedule to start dating again.
“Am I on OkCupid? No. I have zero time, to be honest,” Jennifer told Harper’s Bazaar in an interview published on May 6. “My focus has been [on my other show First Ladies], so dating has not been one of my first priorities. I feel like whatever [romance] looks like, it will present itself, and it’s not about seeking it out, you know?” However, that does not mean the Horrible Bosses costar is closing the book on love.
“When it comes knocking, it’s going to be welcomed. I’m not like, ‘No, I’m done with that. That’s never going to happen again,’” she told the outlet, adding that she doesn’t believe people are meant to be with one person.
“I think we have many soulmates. I don’t think there’s one and one only. I think we have soul clusters,” Jennifer explained. “I’ve had some of my friends for 35 years. I think we’ve all made some sort of unconscious agreement. It’s like when certain groups of people meet, they form a little soul cluster — a sort of common group of souls who have been put together.”
The Morning Show is expected to be debut later this year.
