Jim Carrey battled doubts before taking on a role as a homosexual convict in I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS in case he discovered he enjoyed kissing men.
In the film, inspired by true events, Carrey stars as jailed con artist Steven Jay Russell who falls in love with his cellmate, Phillip Morris, played by Ewan McGregor.
The two actors locked lips for the comedy drama, prompting the funnyman to wonder what effect it would have on him and his relationship with Jenny MCCarthy if he found himself enjoying it.
Carrey jokes, "I did find myself wondering what will people think? And what if I like it? And how will that affect me? And Jenny?"
But his co-star MCGregor didn't hesitate to go all the way, adding: "It wasn't awkward. You're not playing a gay or a straight character. You're playing someone who's in love... As an actor you're always looking for interesting stories. I've played gay characters so I've kissed men before.
"It's about getting on with it. And it all felt strangely usual."
