Gru... we mean Steve Carell, took a little time to hang out with some of his Australian minions at the "Despicable Me 2" premiere in Sydney.

Carell and his co-star Miranda Cosgrove ventured Down Under to premiere the sequel to their 2010 animated blockbuster "Despicable Me," and they were greeted by some very enthusiastic little fans. Some of the film's pint-sized supporters dressed up as the minions, Carell's character's absent-minded, but very funny, helpers. Cosgrove and Carell looked more than happy to pose for pictures with the excited group on the red carpet.

In "Despicable Me 2," Carell reprises his role as super villain Gru, who is now reformed and has given up his evil ways thanks to his three adopted daughters. In this "Despicable" installment, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal. The movie also features the voices of Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, and Al Pacino (who makes his animated film debut).
