June 2, 2016: I don’t think my chest is as hairy as Steve Carell’s, but I got three chest-waxings at the hospital last week, and it is really, really painful. (They put the heart monitor leads on, take them off, put them back on, etc.) Someone told me Mr. Carell did this for real for the movie. If so, wow, that’s dedication.
I recently had an infection which caused my heart to race a little bit, so my doctor wanted me to wear a heart monitor for a little while, which led to a scene that was too close to this scene from The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
