Jim Carrey is hilarious on screen, but in real life, he’s kind of a downer. Jim has opened up about his failed relationship with Jenny McCarthy and his fear over being “erased” from her memory.
Jim and Jenny dated for over five years before splitting in 2010. And now that Jenny has moved on, Jim feels lonelier than ever.
He said: "I've been erased and I know what it's like to erase someone. You know the feeling when you loved somebody and it ends and you feel as if they've moved on or maybe even none of it ever mattered? It's a terrible feeling.
"But everything in my life comes to me for a reason, to step me up to another level and to make me learn. Every single relationship has brought me a little bit closer to realizing what I want and what I don't want, and teaching me the value of love.
Five years is like a lifetime in Hollywood, but Jim doesn’t know if he’ll ever met someone he can commit to for the rest of his life.
"I don't know if I'll ever actually find somebody I can hang with for the rest of my life. I veer off the road once in a while and take the off-ramp into a bad neighborhood and live there for a while, but it's not usually very long.
Everything starts to go wrong and you can only stay in that mode for a short time if you're awake and sober and looking at the universe."
Jeez, no wonder it didn’t work out with him and Jenny. She’s like a ray of sunshine all the time and he sounds like his dark days are more frequent than the fun ones.
