Steve Carell is totally in love with the Despicable Me minions.

And so is his son. 

"My son wanted a minion after he saw it," Carell, who plays Gru in Despicable Me 2, told E! News. "He thought they were real things...it was like he wanted a pet minion or something."

And since the little, yellow, pill-shaped characters are so cute, we couldn't help but to invite them to the E! Courtyard.

Check out what happened when Giuliana Rancic and Ross Matthews met up with a few minions in the clip above!

Despicable Me hits theaters July 3.
