Growing up, one of my favorite actors was Jim Carrey. He was charismatic, a breath of fresh air in Hollywood, and a man who truly stood out as a star. Although his acting career may not be what it used to be, he continues to work hard on numerous films which are scheduled for release over the next several years. These include ‘Deep Cover,’ ‘Bruce Almight 2,’ and ‘Dumb and Dumber for.’
While his work life is keeping him busy, it’s his personal life which has just taken a major turn for the worse. Carrey, along with the rest of us, has just found out that his ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White’s body was found in her Los Angeles apartment along with an apparent suicide note next to it. The note has reportedly referenced their recent breakup.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of my sweet Cathriona,” Carrey stated. “She was a truly kind and delicate Irish flower, too sensitive for this soil, to whom loving and being loved was all that sparkled. My heart goes out to her family and friends and to everyone who loved and cared about her. We have all been hit with a lightning bolt.”
White, who had dated Carrey back in 2012 for a few months, reportedly got back together with the star in May of this year before Carrey broke up with her just last week. Reports indicate that earlier this month the breakup took place and around that same same White posted the following tweet, stating, “Signing off Twitter, I hope I have been a light to my nearest and dearest.”
This followed a rather worrisome and cryptic message that she had posted to her Instagram account reading as follows:
“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the dishevelled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame. W.B. Yeats. #faeries #pixies #flowers #reflections #poetry #yeats #love #ireland #california #californiadreaming #ilovetea”
White, who was a makeup artist for the Tv series, ‘The Online Gamer,’ as well as a number of shorts such as ‘Solitude’ and ‘Firefly,’ will sorely be missed by those who were close to her. This is certainly a tragedy for all of White’s friends and family, and our hearts go out to Jim Carrey and all of those individuals close to this beautiful young woman whose life end much too soon.
