Jim's 'Flying High'29 Jan 2008
By Nicola West (Editor/Writer (UK))
'Suicide Bridge' in Pasadena was the location of another spectacular jump recently as Jim hurled himself off Colorado Bridge. Strapped up and resembling Bananaman, our 'bold hero' swan dived off the bridge as legions of press and public alike looked on in shock.
No, it wasn't in response to the news that he's up for a Razzie you'll be relieved to hear but a scene from "Yes Man". Carrey told movie reporters the scene comes after "my girlfriend tells me to jump off a bridge". Although the insurance premiums for a lead actor doing their own stunts are usually prohibitive, the film's producers managed to "swing" the Carrey stunt by doing it after what is technically defined as the filming period. A terrified Jim brought Jenny and Jane along for moral support, "This is about the most dangerous thing I've done as a stunt," he said after.
Luckily The Insider Online were there to catch it all on film.
Out on December 19th 2008 "Yes Man" is based on the memoir by Danny Wallace, based on his time spent saying yes to every opportunity presented. For further stills check out Gettyimages where you'll find 45 new bungee jump pics.
