10 Fun Facts About Jim Carrey
We’re waiting with bated breath for ‘I Love You Phillip Morris’, opening December 3!
In 1994, we were hit with an avalanche of an iconic new brand of humor. Who doesn’t know “Aaaalrighty then!” or remember the moment in The Mask when he flipped Cameron Diaz upside down on the dance floor? Do we seriously need to explain the greatness of the one and only – Jim Carrey?
The Golden Globe-winning star has the remarkable ability to take on any role and really own it, and make the audience believe it. And don’t even get us started on his marvelous facial expressions!
When you watch Jim, it’s exciting; there’s an anticipation that builds because you know that he’s about to do something insane any minute now.
We know Jim’s new movie is going to be fabulous, but we’re dying to see exactly how he pulls off a Jim Carrey/Ewan McGregor/jail break/extravaganza!
I Love You Phillip Morris is a true tale of married man Steven Russell (Carrey) who comes out of the closet after a near-death experience. His desire to live life to the fullest eventually lands him in the slammer, where he meets and falls in love with Phillip Morris (McGregor). When Steven is released from the state penitentiary, he devotes his energy to freeing Phillip so they can be together.
You may not expect two straight actors to have such a great time making this movie, but as Jim later said, kissing Ewan was “a dream come true. I mean, look at the guy.”
