Jim Carrey gets serious about career, grandparenthood
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Jim Carrey has delivered more than his share of great performances. But this undercover act wasn't one of them.
While receiving press in a Las Vegas hotel room, he was wearing large sunglasses and a sparking gold patchwork blazer.
"This is my Vegas camouflage," he joked. "If I walk around town in this (jacket) no one can see me. It's fantastic. It's the way I blend in in this town. Isn't it nice? I mugged Gustav Klimt," Carrey said, referring to the Austrian painter whose early 20th century works featured gold galore.
That's about as funny as Carrey would get on this day in Sin City promoting The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, opening on Friday. The Vegas-set comedy is about a burned-out old-school magician (Steve Carell) threatened by a newcomer (Carrey) who'll literally risk his life to wow audiences and attain fame.
