JIM CARREY has revealed he would like to star in a drama again - if it was the right role.

The 52-year-old funnyman is best known for his comedic roles in Dumb And Dumber, The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, although he has shown off his serious side in The Truman Show, Man On The Moon and I Love You Phillip Morris.

“I hope to, sure,” he said. “Those are the types of things I like for something special. I like the idea to be a special effect in itself.”

Jim - who has reprised his role as Lloyd Christmas in Dumb And Dumber To - said all his dramatic roles were special to him.

“As far as dramas go, I’ve been in several and I like them all. They’re like my kids!” he said.

REBEL WILSON has revealed how SACHA BARON COHEN kept trying to persuade her to strip off for his new film, Grimsby.

The Pitch Perfect star, who shares screen time alongside the British funnyman in the forthcoming comedy, had to fend off his requests for her to bare all.

“I didn’t quite know what to think but Sacha is completely outrageous. Every day, he tried to get me to go naked. Every day!” she said.

“And I’m like, ‘Sacha, no! I told you, I’m a classy actress’.

“He just keeps pushing you and pushing you and pushing the comedy in every single scene, which is why his stuff is so out loud funny.

“Grimsby is certainly going to get a lot of attention, let me put it that way. It’s highly outrageous.”

RICKY WHITTLE has revealed how he learned to ride a horse especially for his role as Grounder Lincoln in The 100.

The former Hollyoaks hunk returns in the new series of the US show, which follows 100 chosen youngsters sent down from space station The Ark, to try and start a new life on a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Ricky revealed: “It is true I learned to ride for the show. It was great because I love horses.

“You get better shots if it’s you and not a stuntman on a horse. If they can see me rearing a horse, doing all these different things, then that’s more visually effective than a wide shot of someone else doing the work.”
