Jim Carrey makes light of behavior

Jim Carrey doesn't mind being a big joke - because it makes him this year's Tom Cruise.
News flash: Tom Cruise is still tainted by his bizarre antics and reigns as king of bizarre in Hollywood.
Yet 'The Number 23' star insists he is not bothered that people are laughing at him, not with him.
Carrey told Time magazine: "Everyone gets to be the big joke for a year. That's this business.
"Last year it was Tom Cruise. But you have to say to yourself, 'Wait a minute, dude, that's not you.' "
The 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' star is planning to write an autobiography to reveal his true self.
He said: "It will be more representative of who I am than anything I've ever done.
"I feel like I know something. These thoughts make me feel like I'm wearing gold shoes."
Carrey has been accused of being difficult to work with after it was recently revealed he upset the cast and crew of 'The Number 23' by urinating on set.
The outlandish actor has been branded "unpredictable" by co-workers from several of his latest films due to his "bizarre behavior and on-set tantrums".
Director of 'Fun With Dick and Jane' Dean Parisot now calls the film 'Fun With Jane' - because "dealing with Carrey proved so harrowing".
An executive from 'Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events' said he was "scary".
