Steve Carell on how he only just made it through Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
23rd October 2014

Simon Thompson sits down with Steve Carell to discuss his new film Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. 

The two discuss Carell's frequent trips to London and the epic 28 page book which was condensed into just 81 minutes of film.

Carell said: "It was 28 pages long. Tough to get through. I was supposed to read it but it was too dense for me and I kept flashing ahead to see how it ended. I was a little impatient. I don't know how they managed to squeeze it in. It seemed like an impossibility but they were able to condense that narrative down to 81 minutes. It could have been a trilogy."
