Jim Carrey


Jim Carrey’s a complicated guy. Between the Netflix documentary “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond” and his own candid remarks, the last year has revealed more and more about the actor’s inner world — which isn’t always funny. Carrey’s proclivity for art has also made headlines, and yesterday he tweeted his latest creation: an unflattering portrait of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whom he describes as “monstrous.”

“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” he wrote alongside the painting, which almost makes Sanders look like a character from “Beavis & Butt-Head.” Sanders has a contentious relationship with the media and anyone else who questions the erratic actions, tweets, and attitude of her boss; the problem, it seems, is always the press and never the president.

Carrey’s Twitter feed is largely devoted to his art. Earlier this week he unveiled a far more flattering portrait of Stephen Hawking, “the greatest mental athlete of our time,” upon the physicist’s passing at age 76.
