JIM Carrey was once a star of $ 20 million per film.
After Ace Ventura: Pet Detective catapulted him to international renown, he was suddenly a bona fide foreman. Follow-up hits such as Dumb and Dumber, The Cable Guy, Liar Liar, The Truman Show and Bruce Almighty – along with a series of high-profile friends including Renée Zellweger and Jenny McCarthy – kept him firmly in the spotlight.
But in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter the winner of the Golden Globe admitted that he had never taken anything seriously.
"My plan was not to come to Hollywood, it was to destroy it, like, take a giant sledgehammer for the leading man and for all seriousness."
