jim carrey: i needed color

We all know Jim Carrey as an actor who excels at comedic performances—from his days in the tv show In Loving Color to his crime solving skills for animals in the Ace Venture: Pet Detective movies, but this video shows us a side that not many have seen before. He shows us how painting, drawing and sculpting has really come to help him heal from emotional wounds that life has a tendency to throw at you, to helping him express the feelings that he is experiencing, as well as helping him realize what he needed to know about himself. This quote really resonates with us and helps explain the drive that all artists feel when they create:

“I think what makes someone an artist is they make models of their inner life. They make something physically come into being that is inspired by their emotions, their needs or what they feel the audience needs”
