Jim Carrey Regrets Earning Millions From Kick-Ass 2, Much To Producers' Delight

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | June 24, 2013 | Comments ()


Last night saw the sixth-season finale of "Mad Men," and I haven't watched it yet but am certain that the internet will soon spoil the ever-loving hell out of the fun. On a less spoileriffic note, our own Dustin Rowles sat down with USA Today for his latest conspiracy-oriented interview. (USA Today)

For those of you who don't mind the spoilers, Peggy Olsen finally got her due with this defining shot. (Warming Glow)

Ellen Page did not appreciate her likeness being ripped off for "The Last of Us" video game. Girlfriend means business. (Kotaku)

Scientists have a list of questions that shall continue to puzzle them for all of eternity. The freakiest one just happens to be the following: "Why do humans spontaneously combust?" (Mental Floss)

The following graphic illustrates the "Likeability Index" of good guys and villains from several popular television shows. There are not too many surprises involved in this chart, but it's still a fun exercise. (Popwatch)


Infographics are all the rage on the internets, so here are even more of them. These examine various Pixar flicks in both an educational and eye-pleasing manner. (Vulture)

Let the post-release analysis of World War Z commence with these 13 questions left unanswered by allegedly lazy script writers. (Film School Rejects)

Hey, it turns out that Anthony Weiner and Adolf Hitler have something in common. (Buzzfeed)

Scarlett Johansson just replaced Samantha Morton in a film role, and my mind is blown. (Slashfilm)

Jim Carrey would like everyone to know that he very much regrets his starring role in Kick-Ass 2 because he no longer condones "that level of violence" in film after the Sandy Hook tragedy. If Jim feels that strongly, he could always donate his salary to the victims. (Celebitchy)


"Baffled" Kick-Ass 2 producer Mark Millar has already responded to Carrey. (Millarworld)

To absolutely no one's surprise at all, Gerard Depardieu was found guilty of drunk driving. (Uproxx)

James Gandolfini gifs are the best after enduring an assortment of Man of Steel, The Bling Ring, and Poltergeist offerings. (Videogum)

Is The Bling Ring really a sociological treatise in which Sofi Coppola compares Emma Watson's character to "precisely the sort of unapologetic delusion " Kanye West "continues to express, say, about his attempt to steal a Moonman statuette from Taylor Swift"? (Grantland)

Some idiot gave Justin Bieber another monkey, and he's already misplaced the poor creature. Free Mally 2. (DListed)

We don't hear enough from the female gaming perspective, but that's about to change ... starting now. (Unreality)

This video imagines a terrible world wherein casting directors hired Zooey Deschanel and Michael Cera for "Game of Thrones."

Warning: This commercial might make you tear up just a little bit. Cute dog + widower = bittersweet.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    So why the hell didn't they just get Ellen Page to star in their game?

  • e jerry powell

    There are some women that have that bad boy weakness thing in their constitutions, and I like to ridicule them, which makes me a horrible hypocrite, because even in his dotage, I would still sell my soul for a couple of romps in the hay with Gérard Depardieu. Les valseuses ruined me for decent men.

  • ferryman

    "Jim Carrey would like everyone to know that he very much regrets his starring role in Kick-Ass 2"

    I never thought we would agree on anything, Jim and me, but as it happens I too regret his starring role; in everything he's ever done.

  • Maddy

    I CANNOT with all the Sansa hate it's such bullshit and I'm going to use the word: misogyny. Maybe it's my inner obnoxious feminist coming out but I think Sansa is awesome, she's just not as obviously awesome as other characters because apparently displaying stereotypically 'feminine' strength in withstanding physical and psychological abuse isn't 'cool' or 'badass' enough for some people. I love Arya, but if she were in Sansa's place she would be dead, it takes some pretty amazing emotional intelligence to survive in a snake's pit like King's Landing at such a young age and I foresee her becoming quite a formidable player in the future. Arrgh! Rant over!

  • F'mal DeHyde

    This Fancy Feast commercial isn't nearly as good as that darling Westie one but... KITTEN!!!


  • BWeaves

    Humans do not spontaneously combust! They die and then burn slowly like a candle. They only time a human has burst into flames was when they were wearing a bomb, or soaked in gasoline and lit a match. Since they need help in order to do that, it doesn't count as spontaneous combustion. Even lighting your farts doesn't count. If you are going to burst into flames, you have to do it just by yourself.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I found an encyclopedia on human death at a thrift shop, and gave it as a gift to my morbid roommate, who loved it. I did make the mistake of reading a few of the entries, including the one on spontaneous human combustion. Ew. One cited case had to do with how the fat in her body was chemically composed.

    (ooh, it might be this book: http://www.amazon.com/Final-Ex... )

  • apsutter

    I've thought it was weird for a while that the girl in Last of Us looks jut like Ellen while she's actually starring in a different game.

  • Bert_McGurt

    Herschel is less likeable than Rick? Than Carl? Than THE GOVERNOR?

    Also, where the f*ck is Hank? You've got Marie and Saul, but no Hank? Do you know something you're not telling us, EW? DID YOU F*CKING SPOIL BREAKING BAD FOR ALL OF US, YOU LAZY BASTARDS?!

  • apsutter

    Herschel was only unlikeable for the beginning of last season and then became one of my favorites.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    How is anyone more likable than Daryl? He is the Spike of that show. Its all cheekbones and emotional issues and violence. Also, he's the only thing that has me still watching the damn thing. So yeah. Pretty fucking lickable. I mean likable.

  • Mrcreosote

    Tim is more likeable than Raylan. Come on people, Raylan is a likeable ass. Tim is just likeable.

  • emmalita

    Raylan = torrid weekend
    Tim and his PTSD = keep forever

  • Horatio Postlethwaite

    Tywin hateable?! The man is epic!

  • Maddy

    An amazing character played incredibly well by Charles Dance, but he is a massive shit

  • Maguita NYC

    On a deliciously hateable level.

  • jennp421

    I thought people hated Bettie; also, I may be in the minority, but I actually like Mellie much more than I like Fitz.

  • Especially at this point. Fitz is kind of a monster.

  • luthien26

    I feel so bad for Sansa. Sure, she might not be the most likeable character, but hate? After all she's been through? Come on, people!

  • Nadine

    I agree entirely. I think she's a spectacular character, she was a spoiled little kid who has learned faster and with more skill than ANY Stark just how exactly to play the game and survive. There's a commendable job being done with her and I barely watch the show as it is.

  • Mrcreosote

    I think Eddard Stark and his really bad haircut would disagree with you. If Sansa had just kept her mouth shut, perhaps he'd still be able to sing "Bear and the Maiden Fair".

  • $32857398

    I'm lost. To what are you referring to?

  • Mrcreosote

    It was Sansa talking to Cersei about her father's concerns that led directly to Eddard losing his head.

  • Becks

    A little girl had no concept of the power of her words which were then turned against her by one of the most monstrous families in the history of literature (television) to murder her father and torture her. I think she could be forgiven by most reasonable people. Jamie is on the right side of likeable in the chart and he gleefully threw a child off a building to protect his incestuous affair.

  • $32857398

    Also, I'm pretty sure that what really compromised Ned and led to him losing his head was him going straight to Cersei and telling her he knew Joffrey wasn't Robert's son and he was sooo going to tell him.

  • luthien26

    That, and following it up with heading straight into the throne room and declaring that Joffrey wasn't the rightful heir to the throne in front of the kid's face. Once he did that, Joffrey wanted him dead no matter what. No, Sansa didn't make the best decisions, but she is in no way directly responsible. Ultimately the blame lies squarely on Joffrey, who went so far off script even his mother couldn't do anything but stare in disbelief.

  • Mrcreosote


  • luthien26

    I think the series should end with Hodor ruling the Seven Kingdoms! Hodor for all! :)

  • MikeRoorda

    I had a couple of those dogs growing up. (Westies!)

    So... uh... I'm just gonna sit over here and not do that.

  • People hate Sansa more than Pete Campbell??? Bull. Shit.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I don't even hate Hitler more than I hate Pete Campbell.

  • lowercase_ryan

    owning the downvote, because it's fucking Hitler.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Cool beans, I get you.

  • John W

    Somewhere the band members of Berlin read Carrey's comments and smiled.

  • Dumily

    Richard Harrow > Al Capone. I find the chart to be lacking.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    I hope we get so much more Harrow next season. He is so, so, so good.

  • Nadine

    That chart is on CRACK. Rachel is more hateable than FUCKING Winona?

    I'm with lowercase_ryan, someone has clearly never, ever, ever, ever seen the show.

    Also I have to contend, frankly, that Tim is at last as likeable as Arya.

  • JoannaRobinson

    What on earth is Olivia Pope doing on the right side of that Y axis?

  • Election fixing? Maybe. I don't know.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I admit I've not watched the show, but every description of what she does on it leads me to conclude she's at best an anti-hero, though she's probably a little too far into the bad than is fair.

    ETA: And she should rate higher on likability. You can't be played by Kerry Washington and not be adored.

  • DataAngel

    Not going near that dog commercial. Noooope. Nope nope nope. I have a policy against crying at work.

  • Maguita NYC

    Don't. Like someone so eloquently put it over the week-end: Since my bladder is close to my eyes, I teared-up easily.

    Made me want to hug my doggie. Very badly.

  • DataAngel

    Well thanks! Just reading this comment made my throat lump up.

    I'm a terrible person. I can watch/read/hear about terrible things happening to people. I can sit dry-eyed through anything tear-jerking/tender/sweet about people. Animals in danger? Animals being gently rescued? Animals getting reunited with their owners? Wild animals reuniting with the people that fostered them? .... Waterworks. Like a broken faucet. I'm no longer allowed to watch Animal Planet.

  • Maguita NYC

    Same here. I actually have to leave the room whenever that "donate to save the baby donkey" TV spot comes on. Also, mistreated proud elephants. Can not.

  • lowercase_ryan


    This is what happens when you speculate on a show you've never seen while you're drunk and smoking crack, but you've got that pesky deadline to deal with.

    Seriously, someone needs to get fired for this.

  • Ben

    My first reaction upon reading it was "I must complain about that in the comments" but looks like you've got that coverd for me.

  • JJ

    Fired? It's Entertainment Weekly. It's what they do.

  • lowercase_ryan

    decapitated then.

  • JJ

    Seems reasonable.

  • Maguita NYC

    It made me laugh out loud that Joffrey and Sansa were on the same level of Hateable: One for the bad side, the other for the good!

  • I feel like this is correct for the first season but by now I'm much more annoyed by Jon Snow than by Sansa.

  • Maddy

    Don't even get me started on how annoyed I am at hipster emo kid Jon Snow, I CANNOT deal. Ygritte is the only thing making his storyline bearable, which is weird because in the books I quite like JSnow (though he wasn't my favourite) and found Ygritte grating - shows what a difference acting makes

  • Aww, I think this is the first spam reply I've ever gotten. I feel like I've made it. I think it might be calling me fat, though.

  • Maguita NYC

    Also, Sansa completely redeemed herself with that last look she threw Tyrion in the season finale.
