Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor Have Windblown, Key West Romance


Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor (who’s now a strawberry-blonde) were spotted have a windblown moment off the Florida Keys while shooting their film, I Love you Phillip Morris. In the film, Carrey stars as Steven Russell, a married father/conman who finds himself in the Texas prison system where he falls in love with his cellmate Phillip Morris, played by McGregor. The romance prompted four escape attempts and a lifetime jail sentence for Russell.

According to Metro UK, “In this scene, the two stars are filmed during a fumbling man on man moment aboard their dinghy, bobbing off Florida Keys. Carrey was left with his legs sprawled in the air and his pants around his ankles, as McGregor looks on suspiciously.”

Earlier this week, Carrey and Rodrigo Santoro were spotted shooting a scene in Miami Beach. The three actors were seen the week before at a popular gay ‘martini’ night at Halo Lounge in South Beach doing research.

    Oh good. Another gay themed movie staring non gay actors camping it up.

    America is so enlightened. I’m glad it’s there to show the world how gay issues should be treated…

    …in 1978 perhaps.

    It seems like all of the shots from this film look ‘gay’ in a totally creepy way. They kind of freak me out. They’re like cardboard cut-outs of ‘gays’, or at least someone’s perception of teh gayz. Ugh.

    Jim Carrey playing gay is more repulsive than I care to dwell on right now.

  4. Wheezy says

    The idea of seeing these two in ANY kind of love scene with ANY one makes me throw up in my mouth.

    If they wanted to cast this movie properly they should have dialed up whoever did the casting for OZ or better yet just got Chris Meloni and Lee Torgeson just for the eye candy.

    It’s based on a true story about a guy (Carrey’s character) who fell in love with his cell mate (Ewan). The cell mate was released and the guy kept escaping to be with him. Maybe these two look like the real guys did, I don’t know. Carrey usually gets on my nerves.
