Why I admire Jim Carrey
I admire Jim Carrey because of his acting skill. Jim Carrey’s movies always making me laugh and they are really funny. The Truman Show is a movie that worth to make us ponder.

In this movie, Truman is a man whose life is a fake one. The place he lives is actually a big studio with hidden cameras everywhere, and all his friends and people around him, are actors who play their roles in the most popular TV program in the world which called The Truman Show.
