Is JIm Carrey Headed For a Breakdown?

Funnyman Jim Carrey is reportedly heading for a breakdown.

The 51-year-old actor’s friends are worried that he is feeling down about his career and love life, reported Showbiz spy.

“Jim has suffered from severe depression in the past, and you have to worry those fearful days are coming back again. When you talk to him, he’s not as animated as he used to be. He seems at a low point – like a ship without a rudder,” a source said.

Carrey is also sad about his split with former Playboy playmate 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. There’s no shortage of young beauties who will throw themselves at Jim, but he’s been searching for real love, and there’s no one to replace Jenny,” the source added.

Jim Carrey is Officially a Sugar Daddy, Says Creator

Jim Carrey was spotted holding hands with a new mystery woman in Los Angeles this week. Less than 24 hours ago,New York Post revealed that the mystery lady is in fact Anastasia Vitkina, a 23 year old college student from New York who began dating Jim Carrey after his split with Jenny McCarthy last year. According to New York Post, Vitkina has been flying back and forth from New York to Los Angeles to see the actor.

Since the two were spotted together at a Guns N’ Roses gig in Los Angeles this past week, the media has been quick to analyze their relationship. So, how does one classify Jim Carrey’s relationships with Anastasia Vitkina?

Brandon Wade, the creator of, the largest sugar daddy dating website, announced today that the relationship between Jim Carrey and Anastasia Vitkina as described by the New York Post article is similar to the hundreds of thousands of romantic relationships formed between older Sugar Daddy and younger college Sugar Baby members of his website.

“If media coverage of their relationship is accurate, that would make Jim Carrey a Sugar Daddy, and Anastasia Vitkina his College Sugar Baby,” says Wade, who is also the author of The Definitive Guide to Sugar Daddy and Mutually Beneficial Relationships. “A Sugar Daddy is a successful, wealthy and usually older man who is willing to pamper a Sugar Baby in return for friendship, companionship or romance.”

Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey Still Friends Following Split

Jenny McCarthy is pleased her split from Jim Carrey was amicable — because the two stars are still great friends.

The couple ended their five-year romance earlier this year (Apr10), announcing the news to followers on their pages.
Actress/model McCarthy admits their relationship had run its course, insisting there was no drama involved in the split – and she’s thankful to Carrey for his support in raising her autistic son, Evan.
She tells U.S. news show Larry King Live, “Everything that we talked about in terms of, admiration for one another and respect and love was absolutely true and is true. In the moments, there were some great times.
“I’m so grateful for him standing by me through those autism years, and being so kind to Evan, and being an amazing boyfriend. But like with a lot of relationships in Hollywood, you don’t necessarily see what goes on when things aren’t maybe so great.
“The key that didn’t work was probably us both growing and changing like everyone does in opposite directions. And we kind of got to that point, rather quickly towards the end that said, you know what? We’re both seeing that maybe we’re not going in the same direction anymore. And let’s end in peace, not war.” McCarthy also reveals why the couple announced their split on Twitter, adding, “We got a phone call that said the magazines are coming out tomorrow. They found out. And so we both decided to do it on our own terms. We didn’t want to go through the media machine like when celebrities break up, you have to like make a statement, go through the press wire… we just said let’s do it in the new social media world… bow out gracefully with a lot of respect.”
