Jim Carrey showed he’s not lost his sense of humour as he posted an amusing clip to celebrate his 60th birthday.
The Hollywood actor is famed for his jokey behaviour on movies such as Liar Liar and Dumb & Dumber and he took to Twitter on Monday to wish himself a happy birthday.
He posed as an old toothless man as he recorded the funny skit. In an elderly man’s voice he quipped: “‘I’m 60 and sexy! And tonight I’m having creamed corn and strained peaches.”
He pulled an array of funny faces as he shot the short clip in a casual grey t-shirt.
He touched on the milestone birthday in the caption for the post too as he wrote: “‘It’s ma birthday! Whoohoo! I’m old but I’m gold! I Love you all!!!”
Fans were quick to share their appreciation on his post while also leaving birthday wishes.
Comedian Joe Gatto, who recently left The Impractical Jokers, wrote: “Happy birthday Jim. Thanks for the decades of laughs and inspiration.”
American YouTuber Kian Lawley penned: “Happy birthday dad, It’s been a long time since we’ve spoke. Hope ur well && enjoy ur corn.”
And even restaurant chain The Cheesecake Factory’s Twitter page was getting in on the act, writing: “Happy birthday to an icon.”
Many other fans took to the post to share their artwork of the star to mark his birthday.
The Canadian–American actor, whose real name is James Eugene Carrey, has been a star on the big screen for decades, with other movies on his CV including The Mask, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and The Cable Guy.
It was Ace Ventura: Pet Detective that helped him establish himself as a worldwide star as he played the role of the eccentric animal detective who is tasked with finding an abducted dolphin.
He also starred in the hit movie’s sequel Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.
Jim recently paid tribute to former Full House star Bob Saget following his death.
The 65-year-old, who was best known for starring in the sitcom, was pronounced dead in his hotel room in Orlando, Florida, a week ago.
Writing on Twitter, Jim said: “Beautiful Bob Saget passed away today at 65. He had a big, big heart and a wonderfully warped comic mind. He gave the world a lot of joy and lived his life for goodness’ sake.”
