We can’t think of anyone more perfect to play Curly in the upcoming Three Stooges movie. Unfortunately, Jim Carrey decided to drop out for reasons unknown until now — he was worried that the weight he would have to gain for the character could cause drastic health problems.
"There wasn't any creative difficulties that led to this exit, but rather the weight gain for the role. For me, I don't really want to do anything halfway, and I don't feel like a fat suit does it. I started experimenting with it a little bit, and I gained 35, 40 pounds. I wanted to gain another 30, 40.”
Carrey explained that he was concerned that because of his age he would have trouble losing the weight when the movie finished:
"When you're (Robert) De Niro in your 20s or early 30s, you can kind of come back from that (weight gain). It's a tough thing to come back from when you're upwards of 30. Your body can't carry it or you can have a cardiac arrest."
We support his decision to pull out, even thought he would have been great!
Who do U think should replace him?
