Jim Carey Doesn't Want To Be Tom Cruise


Actor Jim Carey doesn't want to be a joke in Hollywood. The once $20 million-a-movie man wants to do it his way. The actor reveals, "I don't want to pick scripts just to keep me in the status-phere. You have to take the plunge to expose your true self," the funnyman tells Time. After several comedy flicks Carrey is now turning to horror flicks with his latest project "The Number 23," a low-budget shocker about a man consumed with numerology.

Carey also believes with his new choice of films, his career may be taking a dive. "Everyone gets to be the big joke for a year. That's this business. Last year it was Tom Cruise. I could be the next Kathie Lee Gifford." Last that I checked, isn't Tom still a joke in Hollywood? As long as Carey isn’t jumping on couches, he is all good in our book.

At last nights movie premiere, Jim Carey showed up with his main squeeze Jenny McCarthy who was looking better than ever. Check out the trailer for "The Number 23".
