It’s hard to invoke a memory of seeing Jim Carey having a sad face on him.
I had to think if I‘ve ever seen a movie in which I have seen Jim Carrey not smiling. When you think of Jim Carrey you tend to think of one of the best comedic actors of our times, with roles such as in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Dumb and Dumber and Liar Liar.
However, one of my favorite movies of all times has Jim Carrey going through a painful breakup and establish himself as a tragic actor as well and he is absolutely flawless in his performance.
That movie is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Love it.
The latest selfie of the fifty-five-year old’s shows a heavy-bearded, almost unrecognizable Jim Carrey, a bunny in tow and one carrot. This is not a joke. It’s very real and very, very sad.

These last few years proved disastrous for the actor after he saw the death of his girlfriend Cathriona White in 2015. She was found dead of a prescription drug overdose.
Miss White was the woman Jim Carrey was seeing last after a couple of brief relationships and marriages.
To make matters even worse, despite him being in mourning, Cathriona White’s ex-husband and mom both filed a wrongful death lawsuit on the alleged grounds that he was responsible for her death.
Her ex-husband claimed that the actor had used his “immense wealth and celebrity status” to illegally obtain and distribute prescription drugs involved in her death.

He issued a statement the very next day denying the allegations:” It would be easy for me to get in a back room with this man’s lawyer and make this go away, but there are some moments in life when you have to stand up and defend your honor against the evil in this world.”
“I will not tolerate this heartless attempt to exploit me or the woman I loved,” said Carrey.
“Cat’s troubles were born long before I met her and sadly her tragic end was beyond anyone’s control.”
when did Jim Carrey get so fucking old ??

Even though the actor has battled depression in his lifetime and has used anti-depressants, he is now off the medication or stimulants of any kind, he doesn’t even drink coffee anymore.
“I was on Prozac for a long time. It may have helped me out of a jam for a little bit, but people stay on it forever. I had to get off at a certain point because I realized that, you know, everything’s just OK,” Carrey told Steve Kroft from CBS News.
Jim Carrey looks extremely old and it’s sad 🙁

Indie Wire online magazine suggested that Carrey’s look was not, in fact, the product of depression, but rather the actor preparing for his upcoming role in the movie The Bad Batch.
The IMBD description of the movie says it is a “dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland and set in a community of cannibals”.
Judging by the promo photos of Jim Carrey in that movie, I would say that this latest selfie is definitely the case of a great actor off-set with his on-set look!
And that bunny…
Jim, I will be seeing your next movie and I wish you many successful and happy days ahead!
