Should Jim Carrey Cut His Hair?

02/21/2007 at 01:55 PM ET

We’ve been watching Jim Carrey’s hair get longer and longer thinking “Huh. That’s an interesting look on him. Wonder if it’s for a part.” Last week we spotted him out with lovely girlfriend Jenny McCarthy at the premiere of his new movie The Number 23 and noted that now his hair is actually longer than hers. After seeing the rubber-faced actor on TRL yesterday, we’ve decided it’s time for a cut. Certainly in this day and age, there is no set length that men’s hair should be, but we just like Jim better with shorter hair. Tell us: Do you think Jim Carrey should cut his hair? Or do you like the longer locks on him?

Elle on

Definitely time for a cut. Although he can pull off anything – the short hair matches him better.

georgie on

ugh, what’s happening? does people have to comment on EVERY celebrity’s hairstyle now? booooring!

Katie on

It’s time for a cut. Actually, it was time for a cut a long time ago…

cruz on

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shannon on

yes definitely cut it, he looks older this way

deb on

Well, I’m going to buck the tide and say – DON’T CUT IT! He looks good – more casual, less anal.

Alice on

I like it better short, but if its for a role, than he doesn’t have a choice.

Kait on

Yes, he looks much better with it short, it makes him look younger.

sassy on

yes he should cut it its like longer than his girlfriends!

Kait on

Veronica on

Jim Carrey DEFINITELY needs a cut!

Victoria Knight on

Thank goodness for making this an issue! Jim Carrey thinks he can get away with anything, but he cannot. Please, Jim, follow Jenny’s footsteps and try to look sharp.

Didi on

He definitely looks different with long hair. But I agree that it makes him look older and since I was never a big fan of long hair on guys (unles they are rockers) ..prepare the scisors :)

Mel on

Yes, so past time for a hair cut!!

Jennifer on

YES! Ew… it’s WAY to long. It makes him look really creepy. And I don’t think a guy should have super long hair… it’s sexier to run your hands through shorter hair!!!

gladis on

NO i dont think that he should cut his hair..i think that i looks good on him…not all guys can pull that look so you go jim !!!

Tamara on

Yes, it is most definitely time for a cut. I saw the movie premier photos last week and at first wondered who the pretty girl with Jenny McCarthy was.

Pete on

He looks like a tard.

moviechic on

I’m going to be blunt, but yes. It looks terrible.

Jessica on

Yes, Jim Carey although you are very handsome…you need a hair cut desperately…sorry but it just doesn’t look good on ya!

melissa on

I don’t think it really matters what your hair looks like when you are dating somone notorious for burping and farting in public and laughing about it.

Marissa!!!! on

It doesn’t really matter to me. Jim Carrey can pull off any haircut! I really couldn’t care less and it’s his business anyway.

Kelli on

Past time for a cut….I like it a little shaggy, but he’s gone overboard now.
I agree…the longer hair makes him look old! People are gonna thing Jenny’s with her dad. 8|

Joni on

I think it would be great if he got together with Nicholas Cage and made a salon date of it all, snip-snip!

Elda on

I just love this man, i wish i could be his girlfriend for one day!!! He is just handsome period!! P.S. i bet he makes a great boyfriend!!

AMBER on

HECK YES ITS NASTY LOOKING!

melody on

to me it doesnt matter. because he’s a AMAZING actor and thats what matters. although I do think that his hair should be just above or at his ear. not 3 inches below! It does make him look older but whatever he likes.

ms. on

Yes, and he should give it to britney!

Carrie on

He looks like a 50 year old virgin-nerd who still lives in his mom’s basement — total loser, cut it now please!!

wildflower on

I do think he needs to cut it, only because it makes him look older than he is. Whether he does or not, is no big deal, whatever makes him happy and he appears to be on cloud 9 with Miss Jenny.

Christy on

NOOOOOOOOO! I love it!!!

j on

i like his hair this way. he and jenny look fab together–it doesn’t matter if his hair is longer than hers or not.

Karen on

Time for cut, Jimbo.

Lori Powers on

Definitely time for a cut. I think the long hair makes him look old.

Jaclyn on

Jims got that Tom Hanks look from The Divinchi code… yeah definatly like it shorter..

Emily on

No don’t cut it…it’s a different look for him and we all know he’s “different” but that special kind of different.

Judy on

Yep – you were handsome with short hair. Now you look like every other man with long hair

michelle on

keep it. It looks great on him. Everything does.

krissy on

Who really cares anyway? I say to each their own.

Kim on

Yes! It makes him look old and uncool. Get out the scissors Jim. Don’t be afraid!!!

Christie on

CUT IT….IT IS PAST TIME!!!!!!!

Tina on

Leave him alone, it’s his hair!

CJ from Canada on

It’s getting too long. Definitely time for a cut!!!

Kathy on

Yes, please cut!

kristin on

Cut it!

JenB on

Shorter is better. I don’t like the “midlife crisis” long hair on him. Then again, I don’t like long hair on any man.

Carlie on

No! He looks sexy:)

Angie on

I agree that the long hair makes him look older, He needs to get a trim.

justme on

No – let it grow!!!! I love to see guys with long hair. I can’t wait until it’s long enough to pull into a ponytail, I bet he would look hot!

Nancy on

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hannah boo on

he looks better with short hair!

kh on

he’s a good-looking man but not with this hair. Clean cut and shaven and he’s a 10.

Rachel on

If he cuts it, he should only get a trim. I agree he looks better with longer hair than he does with the short hair.

katy baty on

no cut. def.

Abby on

Why is this even a question?

cIL on

I was just thinking to myself the other day how ridiculous he is looking these days with that long hair and bony face! :)

diana on

i think he looks great no matter what length his hair is…he should keep it the way HE wants.

Jen on

Yes, cut that hair! I like long hair on a guy but, it doesn’t fit him. I also watched him on a tv interview yesterday and he kept playing with his hair. It was annoying!

Bowee05 on

don’t like the fabio loooooooooooook

CMFULLER on

don’t like the Fabio loooooooooooook !!!!!!!!!

Alex on

PLEASE CUT IT ALL OFF!

Candy on

It is time……..but he should give it to Brittany, she looks horrible…..and please…..enough with her! Tired of hearing about it, move on!

lu on

HE HAS A WEIRD LOOKING FACE

Melanie on

Jim Carrey is so sexy!

nella on

long hair on guys is attractive..if the guy is in his 20’s. not so much past that.

a.j. on

work that hair…after you cut it !!!!

R on

Wow, I never noticed his hair got that long. I actually like it long but I think it’s time for a trim.
Maybe about 3 inches off?

Leslie on

I think it makes him look younger so–No, don’t cut it!

Macy on

YES! Very VERY few men can pull off the “Long Hair Look”. As much as I love this guy, He just can’t. Shorter hair is MUCH better.

lindy on

its time for acut…pleaseeeeeee!!!!!!!

Mony on

Short hair looks better on Jim; please cut it!

Nighthag on

A haircut and some botox around his eyes would be a good idea.

Tayme on

Elda, I couldn’t agree more. I love Jim Carrey. I’ve always had a celeb crush on him. I’ve always said the same thing, he would make a terrific boyfriend. He is so funny, you would think you would have such a good time with him. I bet there is another side of him that is loving and caring and knows when to be sensative. I just love how he just doesn’t take life too seriously. The movie “Number 23″ looks interesting. We’re always used to seeing him in comedies, so this movie looks like it could be good, in more of a serious role.

As for his hair, I think he should cut it. I’d take him either way, but since I’m NOT his girlfriend, and you want an opinion, I’d like him with short hair, he just looks more younger. (LOVE YA JIM!)

Jen on

Yes!!!

Doca Lane. on

No Way. He’s Hot Either Way. But He Can Pull This Look Off. =]

lisa on

UNLESS HE IS GROWING IT FOR A MOVIE PART…THEN YEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! DEFINITELY CUT THAT MOP!

jessica on

hes so ugly anyways…. so theres not much he can do to fix it one way or the other!!!

Night on

I like him, but don’t care for the hair. He looks like a man trying to re-capture his youth…but missing the mark. But if HE likes it, then who care what anyone thinks.

Robin on

Jim Carrey is so talented and funny, I love all his movies,an actor sometimes has to changed his look or hair for a certain role, I think he grew it for his latest movie 23 and just has kept it for awhile. But when a man gets a certain age he can no longer look good in long hair, it ages him, he looks better and more youthful with short hair.

Karen on

Wack it OFF, Jimmy Boy. Or at least get some layers, or something…

Monique on

Yes. It makes him look too old. “Jim, please cut your hair.”

Rusty on

Thank goodness for making this an issue! Jim Carrey thinks he can get away with anything, but he cannot. Please, Jim, follow Jenny’s footsteps and try to look sharp.

Melanie on

He looks cute with long hair, but I like it better shorter.

sofia on

he looks awfull anyway..so the hair is up to him

rachel b. on

he’s ready to cut his hair, anytime, now.

fafa on

yeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssss he is ugly ! i prefere went from prison break hmmmmm

Kristin on

No, I am digging this look on him.

Doreen on

I think we should leave it up to Jim!

kaybee on

YES – its gross

Karen on

Dear God YES!! He looks awful – and while we’re at it, the Zack character on Desperate Housewives should cut his hair too. Creepy!

LIZ on

I HAVE REALLY ALWAYS LIKED JIM CARREY AND HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT HE WAS SO SEXY! HERE LATELY I JUST AM NOT FEELING THE LONG HAIR I THINK IT MAKES HIM LOOK OLDER. HE NEEDS TO CUT IT!!!

Erin on

Yes! He looks like one of the cavemen from the Geico commercials!

kim on

Well . . . I think he should cut it, but not short, he looks hot in long hair.

Trish on

I think he just do just what he wants to do. It’s his hair!

Special Fred on

Yeah he should like totally cut his here. Some people can pull off the long hair look and he isn’t one of them. What’s wrong with short hair-do’s?

Lauren on

Who cares what his hair looks like….Jim Carey is not sexy either way.

Lauren on

Who cares what his hair looks like….Jim Carey is not sexy either way.

kaykay_twinz on

He looks really old…

Rachel on

yes he needs to he looked a lot better with a shorter hair eventhough he’s got nice set of hair………….

Christine Charles on

Although I am pretty positive that what any of us think will have zero effect on whether Jim Carrey cuts his hair I must go with YES.

Kristen Y on

Jim Carey can wear a mohawk for all I care, the man is simple hilarious!

Pat Robinson on

I think Jim hair is fine, he should wear his hair the way
he want to and know one should have to do anything they do
not want to do. Go ahead Jim and rock your hair do.

Brandy on

I think he looks cool so everybody else please shut up.

Amanda on

I think he looks positively goofy. As an actor I really like him, but he definitely needs to cut his hair.

Donia on

YES! PLEASE!

christine blasucci on

Yes, I think Jim should cut his hair. He looks better with short hair.

Jaimie Leigh on

I love his new do! You know everyone needs to enjoy their phases and there’s only so long one can wear certain styles.

jennifer lo. on

Jenny on

I really don’t think he is handsome but would look better with shorter hair.

saltcitybabe on

i give him props for not looking dirty with that long hair, but i still think he needs a cut

JEWELS on

WELL – YEAH!!!
CUT IT OFF – ALTHOUGH THE SHAG LOOK IS IN, IT IS IN FOR THOSE AROUND 20 YEARS OLD. THIS ISNT WORKING FOR JIM!!

kaitlin on

Okay well it’s definetly time for a cut. The long haired surfer guy works for some people but not for actors like him.

Kathie Hand on

Long hair on guys is GREAT! It’s nice to see him giving it a try! He wears it well!

Ally on

I love Jim, but the hair is a big NO!!!!Cut that crap off and hurry.

Tiffy on

No, he should not cut his hair, my friends and I think he is hot like that!! NOOOOOOOO! It would change his personality!!!

Lara Maria on

he is good with short or long

i lovee him

Kim on

I think he looks really cute that way but I like long hair on men. As long as he keeps it trimmed he should keep it long.

aeia on

NOOOOOOOOOO

ac on

i think it looks better when a mans hair is longer than his girlfriends it is time to cut the hair

Ashlee on

Oh yeah…really…he needs it

Robin on

No I don’t think he should cut it!!

Coree on

NO WAY! I think its the sexiest he has ever been. The short hair, and his funny ways made a great combo but, Now I think his new look will open more doors for him.

alex on

I think he should do what ever he wants to do. I have my hair long like his

Tiffy on

NOOO, he is not going to cut it. I would know. I KNOW HIM. HE WOULDN’T DO IT AT ALL. He is way to cool to cut it. HE IS MY FRIEND FOR GOD’S SAKE. DON’T DO THIS TO HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lauren on

yeah whats up with tiffy anyways his hair looks fine the way it is leave the guy alone! losers

Nickling on

I hate it, the long hair including that plaid shirt makes him look like he was lost in the 80’s and just caught up with time, well except for that look. The short cut is much hotter.

someone on

Well I’m not to shour if he should. I think he looks cute with his hair longish.

Caroline on

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David on

I cant believe some of you want to change Jim Carrey =0

Jennifer Meyers on

I think Jim Carrey looks good either way. Long hair or short. He’s a good looking guy.
