Leave it to Jim Carrey to tell his truth best through fiction.

 

Considering his flexible filmography, which ranges from the face-contorting comedy of “Ace Ventura” to the tormented surrealism of “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” it’s clear that the 58-year-old actor has never been one for convention.
