Jim Carrey glasses david letterman shoes

Jim Carrey's hitting the talk show/late show circuit (making an appearance last night on David Letterman) to promote his upcoming film I Love You Phillip Morris about a man who comes out of the closet and finds his soul mate in prison.

Carrey has used the film as a vehicle to discuss the hot topic of bullying saying, "It is a horrible thing to be bullied and to fell like an outcast is a terrible thing. It's just so an old thing, an old antiquated way of thinking that you can't have anymore. It doesn't belong in the new paradigm," Carrey told MTV News recently.

Meanwhile, Carrey is expressing his artistic side through painting ... it was reported recently that the actor has rented studio space from Julian Schnabel while he shoots Mr. Popper's Penguins in New York.

Who knew the funnyman had such an edgy, artistic side?
