I like Jim Carrey – I’ve been a fan for a long time – since he was on In Living Color – but I have to admit he’s never been my idea of a turn on. He’s hilarious in Ace Ventura and Dumb and Dumber and showed his acting chops in Man On The Moon, but who knew sexy stud was in his wheelhouse? I just saw a still from his new movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and he looks hot – there’s no other word for it. That man is finally sexy. And bad boy sexy to boot!
The film is about a pair of high school chums – Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi – who turn their obsession with magic into a Vegas career. In the previews for the movie, the two Steves look like they’re channeling Sigfried and Roy with their glittery costumes and dramatic hair. Carrey plays their nemesis – he’s a buff and sexy street magician – obviously channeling Criss Angel or David Blaine.
Carrey’s character, Steve Gray, is a rising Vegas magic star whose built his rep on elaborate stunts and street work. Carrey has the look of this character perfectly – he’s got extensions or a wig – the beautiful head of hair he has is obviously not his, nor are the extensive tattoos he’s sporting. What is real is the neat little sexy goatee he’s rocking, along with thick arm muscles and six pack abs. I just got to say – the man is hot. Of course, once the wig comes off and he starts pulling goofy faces, the allure will no doubt diminish, but if he would just stand there flexing his biceps and showing off his toned torso in absolute silence, it would be a real treat.
Not being a sex god hasn’t stopped him from bagging some pretty hot babes though – most recently Jenny McCarthy and Carrey also romanced January Jones and Renee Zellweger. Carrey was spotted this summer looking thinner but still toned – but nowhere near as ripped and fit as he looks in the movie promos. Filming ended earlier this year, so I’m guessing the holiday beach shots are him letting all that buff musculature melt away. He’s a skinny guy so it’s probably tough enough for him to bulk up and get toned and harder still to maintain.
But come on Jim – what about the ladies? Once they see you looking smoking hot in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, they’re going to be let down by seeing regular old you. Ah well – better to have been sexy and lost it, than never to have been sexy at all!
