Funnyman Jim combines comedy and fatherhood in Malibu

7 JULY 2008
These days Jim Carrey is as well known for his role as family man with beautiful girlfriend Jenny McCarthy and her young son Evan as he is for his zany, larger-than-life antics. And over Independence Day weekend in Malibu, the comedian found a way to combine the two.

No doubt ensuring there were laughs aplenty, the screen star played in the sand with the autistic six-year-old he credits as having taught him "how to love".

Earlier he'd entertained the holiday weekend crowds by donning Jenny's swimming costume. During a romantic stroll with his girlfriend the Truman Show star left onlookers stunned after popping into a beach hut and emerging wearing her sexy bathing suit.
