Hollywood star Jim Carrey considers himself lucky he's not serving a lengthy jail sentence after a job in a tyre manufacturing plant turned him into an angry young man - with a baseball bat.

The funnyman admits he struggled to enjoy life when he was working at TITAN WHEELS in Canada because his fellow workers used to make his life hell.

He recalls, "They'd taunt me. They'd pile their chicken bones two feet high in the corner of the cafeteria because they knew I'd have to clean it up. Or they'd take a s**t in the sink.

"(They were) constantly trying to push my buttons to the point where I walked around with a cleaning cart and a baseball bat, just waiting for my opportunity to crack a skull. It was bad. I wanted to hurt somebody. I was caught up in anger."
