Jim Carrey has gone ahead and proven that he’s still the hilarious human he’s known to be, by uploading his own birthday video.
Rather than doing the obligatory social media birthday celebration move of reposting adoring messages from loved ones and fans, Carrey has acknowledged his latest milestone with his own video.
Staring straight into the camera, Carrey acts as though he has no teeth and says, “I’m 60 and sexy! And tonight, I’m having creamed corn and strained peaches.”
“It’s ma birthday! Whoohoo! I’m old but I’m gold! I Love you all!!!” He captioned the funny vid.

“Happy birthday Jim. Thanks for the decades of laughs and inspiration,” commented American comedian Joe Gatto.
Carrey’s celebrity birthday messages weren’t limited to his video either. The actor and comedian received a special message from Beyonce herself. The singer posted a throwback photo of Carrey on her website, with the message: “Happy Birthday Jim Carrey”.
Thankfully, Carrey made it to the milestone, considering he recently shared that he thought he had “10 minutes to live” after a missile alert was accidentally broadcast in Hawaii in 2018.
Appearing over webcam on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his book Memoirs And Misinformation, Carrey revealed that the image used on the book cover was actually taken during those panic-stricken 10 minutes.
“The cover is actually my face after being told I have 10 minutes to live. It was completely real to us,” the 58-year-old said.
Carrey went on to explain that he had been in Hawaii with his daughter two years ago when his assistant called him crying to tell him about the missile believed to be headed toward the island and that they had “ten minutes left.”
“My brain started winding,” the Truman Show star told Fallon. He added that after he decided against driving to say goodbye to his loved ones because he “didn’t want to die” in his car, he had a moment where he just “looked out at the ocean” and pondered what he could do with “the last moment of my time.”
In 2018, Hawaii’s emergency alert system sent an island-wide a text that read: “Ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill.”
As fear and chaos unfolded across the state, a second alert was sent 40 minutes later clarifying that the original warning was sent in error because an employee pressed the wrong button.
