Jim Carrey Quits ‘Dumb And Dumber’ Sequel

Jim Carrey just pulled out of the sequel of “Dumb and Dumber” just a few months after the project was announced. The reason: Carrey became progressively more frustrated with New Line and Warner Brothers’ apparent lack of enthusiasm for the project (according to ETOnline sources).

“I would have thought ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ [the sequel's title] was a no-brainer, after all it’s implied in the title,” a clever Carrey told ETOnline through his spokesperson.

In early April, director Peter Farelly confirmed that both original leading men, Carrey and Jeff Daniels, would reprise their roles in a “Dumber” sequel to begin shooting in September.

Carrey hasn’t completely burned his bridge with New Line and Warner Brothers: He appears next year in their film “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” ”Dumb and Dumber” was the third in a string of hit comedy films Carrey starred in during the year of 1994 — launching him from mere comedy skit show actor on Fox’s “In Living Color” to A-list movie star. “The Mask,” and “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” preceded “Dumber” that year.

UPDATE (6 p.m. PST): Sources close to the project tell Yahoo! Movies the film will not be made without Carrey.

Should Jim Carrey have stuck with Dumb and Dumber? Would YOU watch that sequel even if he didn’t star in it?

Jack Osbourne: I Have Multiple Sclerosis

Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Just two weeks after he and fiancée Lisa Stelly welcomed daughter Pearl Clementine, Osbourne, 26, was dealt the shocking news. In an exclusive, sit-down interview and photo shoot with PEOPLE magazine, Jack and his mother Sharon open up about their emotional ordeal.

“I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’ ” Jack tells PEOPLE. “I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.” This reaction, of course, is understandable. Having a disease like MS is definitely a big hurdle, especially for a new father like Jack.


Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord – and can cause problems with muscle control and strength, vision, balance, feeling, and thinking. MS differs in each case, with some people going through life with only minor problems and others becoming seriously disabled. Most people fall somewhere between those two extremes.

‘Matilda’ Child Star Reveals Why She Quit Acting

Nineties child star Mara Wilson has revealed why she quit performing for cameras in a recent blog post: “Here is something no real celebrity will ever tell you: film acting is not very fun.”

In the post, a seemingly frustrated Wilson discusses her childhood career—she appeared in films such as “Matilda” (1996), “Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993) and “Miracle on 34th Street” (1994)—indicating the beauty standard for today’s big screen is too contentious for her, and the talent pool is impressive:

I think that there are many much more talented, much more conventionally attractive actresses out there who are taking the roles I would have been offered. To paraphrase the showtune, anything I can do, Anna Kendrick or Ellen Page or Jennifer Lawrence (or any actress from the plethora of actresses waiting to be “discovered”) can do better.


Wilson addresses the continued enthusiasm her fans have, many of whom ask her to return to film. She compares her early success to finger painting: “It’s flattering, but you haven’t finger-painted in years, and it seems like something you did a long, long time ago. You’ve realized you don’t particularly enjoy getting your hands dirty and that there are other outlets for your creative urges. But people are adamant: are you going to finger-paint again? When? Wait, you’re not? Why not?… That’s what it feels like.”

The former child star, now 24, attended New York University and now works as a playwright, according to Us Weekly. And yes, she does still act in theater productions and for voice-over work. But: “…no, you will not ever see me on “Dancing With The Stars.” Sorry.
