Jim Carrey v. Jenny McCarthy — Has He Abandoned Her Son?

If you’re going to appear on the Howard Stern show, you better be honest, and if you’re honest, you better be ready for the consequences. So when Jenny McCarthy told Stern that her A-list ex, Jim Carrey, ended his relationship with her son Evan who “asks for him weekly,” I knew there would be a significant backlash. Carrey immediately went on image-clean-up mode, saying, “I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan’s well being. It’s unfortunate that Evan’s privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always.” Ouch! He had to take that dig, didn’t he? Here’s my question? How do you spend five years of your life with someone and battle out your personal grievances in the press? Did these two change their phone numbers?

Jim Carrey’s Daugther Got Special Treatment — Who Cares?!

Hollywood is run by nepotism, and so is every other industry on the planet. So lets stop feigning outrage at Jim Carrey’s daughter skipping the line on American Idol. Have you ever asked your parent to recommend you for a job? Have you ever pulled strings to get back stage at a concert? We’ve all wiggled our way through a line in our lives, it’s just that some people are better at hiding it. And as an aside, why is Jane Carrey “waitressing on and off?” Isn’t she Jim Carrey’s daughter? Watch her audition below.

Jim Carrey Declares Love for Emma Stone — Career Suicide?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. When you’re a Hollywood A-lister, you have a responsibility to maintain your mystique. When you start to make too many appearances and make poor professional choices, you ruin your brand, and you border on becoming an accessible reality star. Such is the case with Jim Carrey. Watch below.

Jim Carrey’s is the Black Swan on SNL — Confirms He’s Brilliant

I’ve never been a massive Saturday Night Live fan. I didn’t stay home on Saturdays in high school to watch it, and I never find myself actually laughing out loud at the skits. But when Jim Carrey appeared as the Black Swan, I almost choked on my apple (alright — it was potato chips — I don’t eat apples but I thought I’d lie for just a moment). When I first saw Black Swan I was moderately impressed, and then I talked to this guy at work who waxed-on about how terrible it was. He convinced me. I’d tell you why, but I haven’t figured out how to write my review without spoiling the entire movie. So in an effort to express my point without ruining the film, please watch the skit below, because Jim Carrey explains it so I don’t have to.

Jenny McCarthy Continues to Diss Jim Carrey

Jenny McCarthy loved to talk about Jim Carrey while they were together, and she still loves talking about him while they are apart. You would think that when they broke up Jim was done having his relationship splashed across tabloids. McCarthy’s latest confession is that her current fling with James Toohey is the first time she has been “open and truthful” in a relationship. This reminds of Sarah Silverman’s confession that her current boyfriend is the “first guy to tell her she’s pretty,” followed by a subsequent denial that she was taking a dig as Jimmy Kimmel in the press. Is this seriously necessary? You don’t see Jim Carrey doing an Oprah interview discussing how his relationship with Jenny was “no longer fun anymore.”  Do you notice that it’s always the less famous person who spills the relationship secrets?

Jenny McCarthy on Oprah — Says a Whole Lot of Nothing

Oprah has once again scored the less famous half of a Hollywood couple (or ex-couple).  Jenny McCarthy appeared on Oprah to promote her new book, Love Lust & Faking It, and Oprah predictably asked about her break-up with Jim Carrey.  I’d love to summarize what McCarthy said, but it’s impossible.  I’ve posted the video below, and you can figure it out for yourself.  She did seem to imply that she dumped Carrey though, which may or may not have been beneficial for Carrey’s career.  McCarthy often discussed their relationship in interviews, which peeved me.  A-listers should remain private, and piercing the Hollywood veil damages the necessary mystique.  Let’s hope that Jim gets back to his comedic roles.  I miss him.

Jim Carrey Joins Conan O’Brien on Tour – Watch Their Performance

Jim Carrey joined Conan O’Brien on his ‘Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television’ tour. He was dressed as a poor man’s ‘Superman,’ and they sang a Five for Fighting song.  Can you guess which one?  Conan later tweeted, “Jim Carrey rudely interrupted my power ballad last night. How did he get past security in a Superman outfit?”  Watch the performance below. 

Jim Carrey’s "People" Tell him to Lay off the Angry Tweets

Jim Carrey has been getting a lot of criticism lately since defending Tiger Woods on Twitter.  To be fair, he didn’t exactly defend Tiger, as much as he kicked Elin in the gut.  Too harsh?  Of Elin, he said “no wife if blind enough to miss that much infidelity.”  He later tried to save face, by tweeting that he doesn’t condone infidelity, though both parties share some degree of responsibility.  In addition to the outrage about the content of his posts, some of Carrey’s followers are concerned with how late he stays up at night, fearing he may be having a breakdown since his breakup with Jenny McCarthy.   All I have to say about this nonsense is that Twitter is the beginning of the end of Hollywood.  Celebrities are supposed to be these untouchable entities that leave us always wondering what they’re really thinking.  We aren’t supposed to find out that what they are actually thinking is a bunch of nonsensical bull shit. 

Jim Carrey’s New Movie – ‘I Love you Phillip Morris – Gets Shelved

This is not good news for Jim Carrey.  His new film might go straight to DVD.  Carrey plays a gay con artist who falls in love with his cell mate, played by Ewen McGregor.  It was speculated that the film would have trouble with distribution because of an explicit gay sex scene, and this just confirms it.  Jim Carrey just cannot catch a break lately.  Most of his recent films have underperformed at the Box Office, and the public just won’t seem to let him transition into dramatic acting.  So far he’s tried ‘The Truman Show,’ ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,’ ‘The Majestic,’ ‘Man on the Moon,’ and ‘The Number 23.’  None of those films have even come close to his comedic box office success.  Maybe it’s time to throw in the towel and stick to what people want to see you in.

Jim Carrey Loves Phillip Morris

Jim Carrey is starring in the new film, ‘I Love You Phillip Morris.’  The film is about a con man that falls in love with his cell mate, Phillip Morris (played by Ewen McGregor).  Carrey’s character is so in love with Morris that he continually escapes from prison to be reunited with him.  The film had trouble with distribution, and was re-edited, possibly to ameliorate issues regarding its homosexual content. It will be released in the United States April 30, 2010.  I wonder if Carrey and McGregor make out in the film.  Immature?
