Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy call it quits

In the oh they seemed so happy department: Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have split.

The Dirty Love star, 37, and her longtime comedian beau, 48, were together five years.

In a statement released to the press, Carrey’s publicist Marleah Leslie said, “They are grateful for the many blessings they have shared and wish each other the very best.”

In fact, they did seem pretty nice about the whole thing, if you believe their Twitter posts.

“Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to [his daughter] Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.”

Leading man in my heart? Sounds like a Hallmark card.

So what happened? The Canadian funnyman just became a grandpa — maybe Jenny didn’t want that role. Or maybe he didn’t want to get dragged around to all the charity functions — she is an advocate for autism awareness.

When they were down in Miami for the Super Bowl, they seemed happier than most Hollywood couples.

And Jim doesn’t seem like he is capable of a sext scandal.

Though they did seem a bit of a mismatch — Jenny, who has a 7-year-old son with her ex, director John Asher — is a former Playboy pinup. Jim seems a little wacko.

The duo kept the relationship pretty low key, though McCarthy told Ellen DeGeneres in 2008 that they were living together and were basically married.

Carrey has been hitched twice before, to Jane’s actress mother, Melissa Womer, and to his Dumb and Dumber costar, Lauren Holly. The latter marriage lasted only a year. He was also briefly engaged to his costar in Me, Myself & Irene, Renee Zellweger.
