With a sequel to the twenty-year-old film 'Dumb and Dumber' on the horizon, Jim Carrey has begun to show off his chipped tooth to let his inner "'Lloyd' hang out".
Jim Carrey let his inner "'Lloyd' hang out", by choosing to not cover up his famously chipped tooth in public. The dental deficiency gained attention almost 20 years ago, when Carey used it to show off the lovable but stupid nature of his character, Lloyd Christmas, in the cult comedy 'Dumb and Dumber'. With a sequel on the horizon, the film funny-man has decided to show off the tooth, to lighten to moods of his fans.
With Carrey and co-star, Jeff Daniels, filming in Georgia, the famous tooth has been proudly on display both on and off the set. While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her television talk-show, Carey revealed that "I just decided there's a moment in your life when you just gotta let your 'Lloyd' hang out. I have a bonding on it most of the time and now I don't. But I've decided to just live with it - it's fun. Because wherever I go, people laugh in my face and ask me to open beers for them and stuff. It's really kind of a blast."
'Dumb and Dumber To' is set for release throughout November and December of 2014. Following on almost two decades after the original, the new 'Dumb and Dumber' will try to capture the magic of the first film, leading to Carrey's lovable promotion through his tooth.
