‘Get Smart’ Love Triangle: Which One of Steve Carell’s Co-Stars Will Ruin His Marriage?

Blame it on his apparently bewitching kissing ability. Last week, she declared that making out with Carell (on camera, presumably) was like "the yummiest lollipop, dipped in sunshine and wrapped in a masculine wrapper!" (it's unclear if she was speaking euphemistically). And today, again, she's back at it: "I always tell people regarding improvising," she says, "Steve's an abstract expressionist and I finger paint. I'm a very good finger painter, but it's on a different level."

But she's not the only one who's smitten. Today, we learned that that the Rock thought kissing Carell was "fantastic." He elaborated: "Did you ever have warm chocolate cake mixed with ice cream? It's a fine balance. It makes you shiver? The kiss was like that."

So if it's Hathaway versus Johnson, who's got the upper hand? Carell did recently praise the softness of Johnson's lips and say he "smells like strawberry shortcake." Hathaway, on the other hand, has admitted that she had pinkeye and was oozing green mucus when she kissed him. Don't be surprised if you someone forwards you a photo of the Rock lying naked face-down on a towel at Sandals Jamaica. —Linda Holmes
