One of the funniest and solid-seeming couples in Hollywood have called it quits. On Tuesday, Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy confirmed that they have parted ways after five years together.
“Jenny and I have just ended our 5 yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay!” Carrey, 48, wrote on his Twitter.
McCarthy, 37, echoed the news on her own page about ten minutes after Carrey’s post:
“I’m so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane [Jim’s daughter] and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.”
A rep for the actress confirmed to RadarOnline.com that the split was amicable and mutual.
The two were living together and famously said they had no plans to marry since they did not need a “piece of paper” to cement their relationship. Carrey even adopted McCarthy’s activism regarding autism, which her son Evan was diagnosed with in 2005. The two are both prominent spokespeople for Generation Rescue which advocates the view that autism and related disorders are primarily caused by environmental factors like vaccines.
