Why Jim Carrey Says He Can't Support His New Movie TMZ
Actor Jim Carrey is putting the word out that he doesn't support his new movie, "Kick-Ass 2." TMZ.com reports that the actor took toTwitter to discuss his sentiments in response to December's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
"I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence," Carrey wrote. He added, "My apologies to others involved with the film. I am not ashamed of it but recent events have caused a change in my heart.”
The film is slated for release in August, and is a highly anticipated sequel to a film that grossed almost $100 million. The lack of support from Carrey, who is the film's biggest star, is a blow to the film, the story points out.
Universal, the studio behind the sequel, didn't get back to TMZ with a comment, the story notes. Carrey plays Colonel Stars and Stripes in the movie.
