Apparently Jim Carrey Likes Solitude…When He’s Broken Up
It’s interesting how Jim Carrey has been seen saying that he prefers an isolated life and yet we see quite a few women entering and departing his life. He said this just a few months short of dating Ginger Gonzaga:
You could describe my home life as an isolated life. I spend a lot of time by myself but I like being by myself, so it’s OK. That might be strange to some people, but I enjoy it.
Perhaps, Carrey was merely being philosophical. But it’s still interesting how he chooses to cope with his adventurous dating life.
