Hollywood actor Jim Carrey has left his friends worried. Sources close to the star feel the 51-year-old actor-comedian is feeling down about his career and love life, according to IANS.
“Jim has suffered from severe depression in the past, and you have to worry those fearful days are coming back again,” said a source. “When you talk to him, he’s not as animated as he used to be. He seems [to be] at a low point — like a ship without a rudder.”
They also said that the Dumb and Dumber star still longs for the love of his life, former Playboy girl Jenny McCarthy. “Jim thought he and Jenny were going to be together for a lifetime. He was like a father to her autistic son Evan and even hoped to have a child with her someday,” the source said.
According to the website survivingdepression.com, Carrey has been battling with depression for years. Carrey dropped out of school at an early age to take care of his ailing mother while his father was unemployed and it was difficult to make ends meet. Amidst a trouble childhood and marriages that ended up in divorce, the actor was constantly fighting with chronic depression and was even on medication. Recently it was believed that he has learnt to cope with the problem through spirituality but it seems that limited work and another broken relationship have brought the inner demon alive.
