Jim Carrey's art is yet more proof that Hollywood stars should avoid the canvas

By Jonathan Jones

The comic actor's short film about his paintings is painful viewing, but he's not the first star who has tried, and failed, to moonlight as an artist

This is not a scientific law, probably, and I cannot suggest what causes the phenomenon, but the most embarrassing and talentless of all celebrities who try their hand at art tend to be Hollywood actors. Talentlesss at art, I mean. Jim Carrey may or may not be a great comic actor. He is an astonishingly bad painter and sculptor. Carrey has released a video of his artistic efforts that makes for painful viewing. Can he be serious? Is this all a build-up to a film in which he plays a deluded character who thinks he's an artist?
