Number 23, opening February 23 from New Line. There, amidst the usual
questions of character, career trajectory and, yes, hairstyle (he’s currently sporting
a longish, shoulder-length mane), Carrey was peppered with queries about Valentine’s
Day, past and present. He hemmed and hawed a bit, but was finally goaded into a
reflection in order to stave off specifics of this year’s celebration with current
beau Jenny McCarthy. His response? Classic.
“You know, I remember a lot of Valentine’s Days having to
act, and that’s a horrible thing to feel,” said Carrey. “I think Valentine’s
Day should be a moving thing — it should pop up when you feel the most loving.
But because it’s a set thing with a date, it doesn’t coincide with how people
feel most of the time.”
Take that, Lauren Holly!
