Jim Carrey “Desperate For Hit,” Begged Jeff Daniels To Do Dumb and Dumber To?

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes




Jim Carrey is “so desperate for a box-office hit that he cajoled pal Jeff Daniels into doing Dumb & Dumber To,” claims Star.

The tab then quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “Frankly, this kind of silly film is the last thing Jeff needs at this stage of his career,” unnaturally adding, “He won the Best Actor Emmy last year for HBO’s ‘The Newsroom’ and is perfectly content continuing with the hit series and living life quietly in Michigan with his wife.”

It’s pretty odd for someone in normal conversation to say things like, “He won the Best Actor Emmy last year for HBO’s ‘The Newsroom.'”

The “source” adds in yet another seemingly made-up quote that Carrey “craves the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and is desperate for another hit.”

Star even claims Carrey spent a year talking Daniels into making the film.



Gossip Cop checked in with a rock solid source who says it’s “not true,” noting how both Daniels and Carrey wanted to make the sequel.

Once again, only Star looks dumb.
