Cavs news: LeBron James praises Jim Carrey’s talent for the arts

If you grew up in the 90’s or early 2000’s, there’s a good chance you caught at least one of Jim Carrey’s films. From his early days with In Living Color to his first leading role in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the Canadian-American actor, comedian, and producer has continuously blessed the airwaves with humor.

While his on-screen brilliance is evident, there is one aspect of Carrey’s personality that movie buffs may not be aware of: his affinity for painting. On Sunday, Carrey released I Need Color, a fantastic six minute mini-documentary in which he explains his path to canvas.

“What you do in life chooses you,” Carrey said in his documentary. “You can choose not to do it. You can choose to try to do something safer — your vocation chooses you.”

“When I really started painting a lot, I had become so obsessed that there was nowhere to move in my home,” Carrey continued. “Paintings were everywhere, they were becoming part of the furniture, I was eating on them. I found myself looking around at one point at a really bleak winter in New York, and it was just so depressing. And I think I needed color.”

Like many others, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was surprised when he saw Carrey’s inspirational video. The King, a man who is known to be a connoisseur of all things art and music, sent out a personalized message on Twitter to praise Carrey’s talent.

Staying true to his comedic form, Carrey politely replied to James’ message with a spot of humor.
