MOON”, “ETERNAL SUNSHINE.” NOW, DO YOU APPROACH YOUR
DRAMATIC ROLES DIFFERENTLY THAN YOUR COMEDIC ROLES?>>WELL, I ACTUALLY– YOU KNOW,
I LIKE TO GIVE EVERYTHING CHARACTER A DRAMATIC BACK STORY. FOR THE FIRST SHOT AT “DUMB AND
DUMBER, I SPENT THE FIRST 32 YEARS AS A COMPLETE IDIOT.>>Stephen: YOU CAN SEE IT ON

COMEDIC CHOICE. BUT WATCHING THAT NOW, AS A MORE
MATURE PERFORMER, WOULD YOU DO IT DIFFERENTLY?>>OF COURSE. AFTER YEARS OF HONING MY CRAFT,
THERE IS SO MUCH MORE EMOTIONAL NUANCE THAT I COULD BRING TO
THAT MOMENT.>>Stephen: FANTASTIC. SO HERE IS THE SCENE. LET ME SET IT UP FOR YOU. YOU ARE AT A PARTY HOSTED BY A

>>I TURNED IT INTO A MUSICAL. I TURNED IT INTO A MUSICAL.>>Stephen: THAT’S ONE OF THE
LOST SEENS FROM “OKLAHOMA.”>>”SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN
BROTHERS.” THAT’S RIGHT. WHEN YOU’VE GOT SEVEN BROTHERS,
YOU KNOW, THE BATHROOM IS BUSY.>>Stephen: THAT WAS VERY
BRAVE. THAT WAS VERY BRAVE. THIS NEXT ONE IS A CLASSIC LINE
EVERYONE KNOWS FROM “DUMB AND DIRM.” JIM.>>SO YOU’RE TELLING ME THERE’S
A CHANCE?>>Stephen: WHERE DO WE START
WITH THIS? WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AT THIS NOW
AFTER ALL OF YOUR DRAMATIC WORK, WHAT IS MISSING?>>WELL, THE LINE IS DEALING
WITH CHANCE. YET, I FAILED TO CONVEY THE
NATURE OF PROBABILITY ITSELF. AND I SHOULD HAVE HAD AN ACCENT.>>Stephen: THAT’S BRILLIANT. HERE’S THE SCENE– LET ME SET IT

OKAY.>>HIT ME!>>Stephen: FINAL ONE IS FROM
“MASK.”>>OOOH, SOMEBODY STOP ME! IT.>>Stephen: EVERYBODY–

I KNEW THERE WERE DEEPER LEVELS TO THE STORY I WASN’T REACHING. AND I THINK ABOUT IT EVERY DAY.>>Stephen: OKAY.>>EVERY DAY IT HAUNT ME.>>Stephen: LET ME REMIND YOU
OF YOUR BACK STORY. YOU ARE POSSESSED BY AN ANCIENT

  1. You wonder if he's actually this happy in real life. In my experience guys who can't ever turn off the act and be real are covering up for something.

  2. I'm sure a lot of people were expecting a lot of things. A lesser man might've played it straight and just gone with the bit as intended. Jim Carrey on the other hand, breaks out into song.

  3. I'm glad someone invited you so you can try to let out your past endeavors that fed you. Love your Love it!! A Christmas Carol!! Here is something dark so you can compare it too. Prisoners with Sandra Lafferty and others.

  4. Any true fan would have pointed out the “don’t go in there” quote wasn’t from him stinking up the bathroom, it was falling into the aquarium/pool he thought snow flake was in.

  5. It must be awesome to be a multi-millionaire comedian movie star who can afford to live and operate outside of the machine. Unfortunately, anyone who knows anything about enjoying a delicious mango knows that there must be lime juice involved.

  6. The dedication to the characters he portrays is so admirable. He truly seems happy to be Jim Carrey. Good for him. Thank you Jim for sharing your talent with the world.

  7. Jim Carrey Will Played The Voice Of Valdik The Nightmare Subconscious in Inside Out 2 in 2025!😀😀😀😀😀😀💲💲💲💲💲💲💲💵💵💵💵💵💵💵

  8. I really wish they would've had him redo the line in Liar Liar where he explained to the cop why he was getting pulled over!

  9. He and Nic Cage are long-time great buddies. If they did a movie together, it would be incredible. Can you imagine Carrey trying to out-Cage Nic and Cage trying to out-Carrey Jim? It boggles the mind…

  10. Fun fact: Ace Ventura, Dumb & Dumber, and The Mask all came out in 1994. He was also on the cast of In Living Color then.

  11. Jim Carrey is a grand father now. Imagine having him as your grandfather. My parents would be grounding him instead of me

  12. I remember when he used to be funny. Back before he got into politics on social media. Stick to what your good at Jim.

  13. It's so sad to think the funniest people on the planet are the ones that suffer from depression, and most don't even know. I hope Jim Carrey no longer does as he has openly expressed his depression….But to think we lost Robin Williams to depression, I couldn't imagine losing someone like Jim Carrey also. What an amazing, unique, memorable man.

  14. God, this was sad. Especially the ending part. Jim sounds like a 90 year old man in a nursing home. What a fall from grace.
