According to Radar Online, Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend was "in the beginning stages of becoming a Scientologist" before she took her own life -- perhaps by overdosing on pills, as evidence inside her home suggested.

"Cathriona was encouraged to explore Scientology by the singer, Beck, also a practicing Scientologist. That is how she was introduced to it, is what her friends told me. She had started in 2011, before she even had met Jim. It’s fascinating that she was dating Jim, because h...

12 Celebrities Who Used To Be Poor
Some of Hollywood's biggest and most successful stars come from humble beginnings. The following rags-to-riches stories include stars who lived in their cars, one who wore a dress made out of a potato sack, and another who took a janitorial job at age 15 to support his family.

Leonardo DiCaprio's parents divorced when he was one, and he stayed mostly with his mother in Los Angeles, Calif. He lived in a rough neighborhood and was exposed to drugs, crime, prostitution, and violence near Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue. His mother took several jobs in order to support them.

Why Fans Will Love (Or Hate) 'Dumb And Dumber To'
"Dumb and Dumber To" is in theaters now. Right at this very moment. If you wanted to, you could stop reading this (please don't) and jet over to the local multiplex to see how Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas have aged in the last twenty years.

Yes, the world needs a "Dumb and Dumber" sequel about as much as it does another Ebola outbreak or Competitive Baby Tossing in the next Olympics. But then... it's Harry! And Lloyd! God, those guys are just so lovable. It's hard to say no.

Which is why we've gone ahead and said all the yeses and nos for you. Because there's good and bad in "Dumb and...

Jim Carrey and Kate Hudson nailed impressions of Matthew McConaughey over the past week, with the actress taking on her "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" costar at the 28th American Cinematheque Award honoring the actor at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last Tuesday.

Carrey delivered his own take during a hilarious skit for "Saturday Night Live" this past weekend, poking fun at McConaughey's new Lincoln car ads.

"Sometimes you gotta go back to actually move forward," the actor said in McConaughey's southern drawl while driving the car. "And I don't mean go back and reminisce, or chase ghosts. I me...

Jim Carrey Takes On Matthew McConaughey, Halloween & Himself On
When Jim Carrey first hosted "SNL" in 1996, it was one of the times when the host temporarily revamped the show according to his own performance style. That can be a good thing or a bad thing; in Jim's case, it was very good. For his third hosting stint, he was not quite as unstoppable, but he was still quite the blast of energy. As he pointed out in his monologue, Halloween is the one day each year that he is able to blend in with everyone else, and with a plethora of mostly successful All Hallow's Eve-themed sketches, he proved to be the most apt host for the occasion. There were a few cl...

Top 10 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time
Hollywood loves a sure thing. So it's probably no surprise that when a film enjoys massive success at the box office, Tinsel Town executives immediately start planning the sequel. After all, audiences loved the original so just churning out more of the same is a bullet-proof plan, right?


While there have certainly been a number of great sequels that were as good as or even better than the original, there have also been quite a few times where the sequel failed to live up to expectations. Here are our picks in no particular order for the worst movie sequels of all time.

Jimmy Fallon, Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels were on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to promote the trailer of their upcoming film Dumb and Dumber To, but they may have upstaged that with a skit involving fake arms.

The recurring skit has guests use mannequin arms instead of their own while they act out a soap opera. This time, Carrey is a trainee at a burger joint and Daniels is the manager. Fallon wants a burger and fries, something fairly difficult to prepare with mannequin arms!

Jim Carrey really shines in the skit, as it involves quite a bit of ad-libbing and reminds us of the uni...

No more new films will be released in 2013 - but there's no need to fret! Check out why we're hyped (and why we're worried) for these highly-anticipated 2014 films:

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

'Kick-Ass 2': Not As Good As The Original

8/19/2013 11:15pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
DIY real-world teen crime fighter Kick-Ass is back in Kick-Ass 2 and though fans of the first film may line up around the block to see this film, chances are they will be disappointed. Directed by newcomer Jeff Wadlow, the sequel brings in star power from Jim Carrey this time around as opposed to Nicolas Cage and doubles down on the violence with an unexpected streak of nastiness. Yes, Chloe Grace Moretz is still the scene stealer, Mindy Macready’s Hit-Girl, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Kick-Ass, but the film suffers from a case of sequelitis. A lot of familiar faces are back along with chea...

Review: Second Helping Of 'Kick-Ass 2' Satisfies

Kick-Ass 2
Sequels are always tough sell, but follow-ups to cult flicks might as well have a bull’s eye attached.  In the case of the new "Kick-Ass 2" there is such a target but fortunately most of the characters, story and action hit the mark just right.  The result is a flick that stays right on par with its predecessor in terms of tone and entertainment value and gives fans of the original exactly what they crave – more of the same.

Young Dave Lizewski aka Kick-Ass is at a crossroads.  He’s been missing in the crime-fighting superhero scene, so he decides to get back in the game by enlisting the h...

8/15/2013 10:21am EDT
Kick-Ass 2
The creator of the Kick-Ass motion picture franchise is convinced Jim Carrey did him a favor by refusing to take part in the second movie's press tour as his boycott bought the film $30 million of free publicity.

Carrey has been fighting for a tightening of the country's gun control laws in the aftermath of a school shooting in Connecticut, and he subsequently withdrew his support for Kick-Ass 2 over its depiction of violence.
