The Oprah Winfrey Show
24 November 2004    

By Marissa (Web correspondent)

A different side, the side that everyone is used to seeing, was in full force today as Jim licked, joked around with, and entertained Oprah. Oprah had a huge cake brought out to congratulate him on becoming a US citizen. He was very touched.

He also talked about his eating habits, his life "Life is good, I am happy", and of course, "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events". He said that he had a really good time with this one and that it was an honor to work with Meryl Streep.

Thanks to Oprah.com, here are a few quotes from the show:

Oprah Winfrey: Is it true you're on a real health kick now?

Jim Carrey: You know, I live a monastic lifestyle. No, I do. I do live in extremes, basically. I go back and forth. Once every six months, I'll have a day where I eat more chocolate than has ever been consumed by a human being.

Oprah Winfrey: So what was it like for a critically acclaimed actress like Meryl Streep to work with a comedic genius like Jim Carrey?

Meryl Streep: Well, you just try to swim as fast as you can to keep up. I mean, it's wild. And, you know, [there are] no stimulants. Don't need coffee. Don't eat anything. Just go to the set and plug in to Jim.

Jim Carrey: She loves to play, which is great. That's the thing about her. I was so excited about the fact that she comes [to the set] like a kid to the sandbox.

Jim Carrey says he had a great time playing multiple characters in the Lemony Snicket movie—one in particular.

"I really kind of loved Stephano," Jim says. "I mean, I loved all of them, but Stephano was just kind of a magical creation. He was the guy who thinks everyone tells him he looks like Antonio Banderas."
