Jim Carrey's Daughter Auditions for American Idol

Originally posted 01/23/2012 01:40PM



Having a celebrity parent doesn't automatically open the doors to Hollywood – at least for Jane Carrey, the daughter of Jim Carrey, whose audition for American Idol aired on Sunday.

Jane, 24, says she's a mom and has been a waitress for six years, but is now ready to take her shot at the big time. "It was definitely fun growing up with him as a father," Jane said on Idol. "He's not the most extravagant celebrity so it's been fairly normal, fairly."

Jane, who auditioned in San Diego by singing Bonnie Raitt's "Something to Talk About," said she’s eager to make her own mark in the entertainment industry and that it's been difficult to live in her famous dad's shadow.

Jim Carrey Sends Love Letter to Emma Stone | Emma Stone, Jim Carrey

Emma Stone Is Subject of Video Love Letter by Jim Carrey

Emma Stone has a not-so-secret admirer.

Jim Carrey has sent the star of The Help a video love letter, posted on his new website, Jimcarreytrulife.com.

"I think you're all the way beautiful," Carrey, 49, tells to the actress, 22. "Not just pretty but smart and kindhearted."

But age, apparently, does matter to Carrey.

"If I were a lot younger I would marry you and we would have chubby little freckle-faced kids. We'd laugh all day long and go camping and play Yahtzee and tell ghost stories by the fire," he says. "And everyday for the rest of your life you would thank God that I was the appropriate age for you. But I'm not. I'm 49. I have lines on my face. Sometimes a little gray in my beard and it takes me a lot longer to pee than it used to."

• New couple alert? Paris Hilton may have recently called things off with beau Cy Waits – and the heiress has been getting cozy with the Hangover director Todd Phillips. The two headed to Beacher's Madhouse, the vaudeville show inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where they met up with Nicky Hilton and sat at a secluded table toward the back of the club. But the duo wasn't hiding their affection: they shared kisses and kept their eyes locked on each other despite the setting. Earlier, the two started their night at the Chateau Marmont, where they enjoyed wine on the patio with friends.

What's It Like Working with Penguins? Cold! | Jim Carrey

What's It Like Working with Penguins? Cold!

Originally posted 06/15/2011 07:45AM

One of the biggest challenges of working with a bunch of penguins is – well, you might call it cold feet.

The new movie Mr. Popper's Penguins, starring Jim Carrey and Carla Gugino, features the work of eight live penguins (in addition to some CGI penguins), and to accommodate the subarctic creatures, the film set had to be kept between 45 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit – at all times.

"Basically, the set was so cold that I was fighting pneumonia the entire time," Carrey said at a press conference for the film. "I don't even think it's really about the health of the penguins. It's cause they're method [actors]. That's what I found out."

"It was sort of selfish on their part," Gugino remarked.

Jenny McCarthy is newly single and ready to mingle – but not with just anyone.

The actress, writer and TV personality, 38, says experience has made her more picky when it comes to the opposite sex.

"I can't do any celebrities," McCarthy, who most notably dated Jim Carrey, told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM morning show Friday. "I need normal folks. I'm officially done [with Hollywood guys]. It was on my bucket list. Maybe I can check that one off my list."
