Steve Carell Traumatized By Raising Kids In LA (VIDEO)

Steve Carell has lived in LA for a few years now but he didn't have his first traumatic experience there until recently, when his 8-year-old daughter brought home $36 from her lemonade stand.

"As happens in most lemonade stands, Billy Ray Cyrus comes by walking his dog and drops $20 on a cup of lemonade, free cookie included," he told Jay Leno Wednesday night. "So she keeps the 20. And then the paparazzi who had been following Billy Ray Cyrus come and buy lemonade as well so we're up to about $30. Then the police who were called to chase away the paparazzi circled back and bought lemonade. Now she thinks she can do this for a living."

Leno asked Carell if he ever had a lemonade stand.

"That's what I did before 'The Office,'" Carell joked.
