Jim Carrey Was Told He Had '10 Minutes Left To Live'

Jim Carrey Was Told He Had '10 Minutes Left To Live'

Jim Carrey has shared an incredible story of the time he was told he had just '10 minutes to live'.

The actor was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new book when he was asked about the inspiration behind its front cover which is of his face.

The 58-year-old then revealed how he was writing his autobiographical novel Memoirs and Misinformation on an island of Hawaii when his assistant called him in tears to tell him they had 'ten minutes left' and the 'missiles are coming'.

He said: "The cover is actually my face after being told I have 10 minutes to live. It was completely real to us."

The Ace Ventura star said that after frantically trying to get off the island to escape impending doom, he accepted his fate and said his goodbyes to friends.

He recalled: "At that point I started going, 'OK what can I do with this last moment of time'. I just decided to go through a list of gratitudes and honest to God I just could not stop thinking of wonderful things that have happened to me and blessings I've had.

"It was lovely. And I got to a point of grace at about two minutes to spare when I found out it wasn't actually happening.

Sandler was chatting away on Jimmy Kimmel Live! from inside his own personal lockdown, and regaled the host with the tale of his last trip to the cinema, before social distancing rules came into effect and closed them all down.

He told Kimmel: "I saw Jim Carrey's movie, Sonic. I noticed that people were spread out, there were only a few of us in the theatre and I was laughing very loud. The people behind us were laughing, too.

"I called Carrey from the theatre. I was telling him how funny he was while it was going on.

"I didn't know it was going to be the last movie I ever saw at a movie theatre."
