Steve Carell, sex symbol?

Yes, it's true. In 2017, a year when Donald Trump became president, Bill Cosby announced plans to go on a tour to speak about avoiding sexual assault allegations and Katy Perry sought to end her feud with Taylor Swift, the former Office star has emerged as a full-fledged hunk, managing to deliver one of the year's most surprising developments.

Carell, 54, sported silver hair while promoting Despicable Me 3 in London last week and the Internet could not deal with it — "silver fox" references were flowing on Twitter like "That's what she said" jokes at Dunder Mifflin!

"I am so sick of people just looking at me for my physical attributes," joked the onetime Michael Scott actor to Entertainment Tonight. "I'm bursting with pride. That's very nice."

See how social media embraced Carell's George Clooney-esque new look, below. (But make sure to have some water at the ready because you're bound to get hot and bothered!)
