I love Jim Carey.
I love his huge heart and his enormous sense of humour.
I love the story about a 10 year old Jim Carey sending a letter to Carol Burnett, asking to be hired for the Carol Burnett Show as a sidekick to Harvey Korman and Tim Conway. When he told about receiving a rejection letter from the show, he said, "I felt like I'd made it! A letter from Hollywood? Wow!"
I love how he and my son look like they are twins who have been separated at birth.
Most of all, I love Jim Carey because of something he said tonight on an interview on Entertainment Tonight Canada.
He was speaking about the new movie, Horton the Elephant Hear a Who, in which he is the voice of Horton. He talked about reading Dr. Seuss books to his partner Jenny McCarthy's 5 year old autistic son. He was asked if the little boy likes the Dr. Seuss books...his response was enchanting...
" I'm not sure if he actually gets it that he'd being read The Grinch by the grinch!"
That's why I love Jim Carey.
