Jim Carrey got his start on the sketch comedy show “In Living Color” in the early 1990’s. $3.8 billion dollars later he is a box office machine who cranks out $100 million movies like humans convert oxygen into carbon dioxide. The 47-year-old recently starred in “Yes Man” which has currently made $95 million domestically.
On Friday, Jim hit his Twitter page where he defended the golfer, who returned to the course this week professionally to compete in The Masters, Tiger's first tournament since his infidelity scandal broke in November of last year.
"Tiger Woods owes nothing 2 anyone but himself," Jim Tweeted. "2 please his father he gave up his childhood and his freedom in the world. That's enough!"
Earlier this week, Nike unveiled a new ad featuring a solemn faced Tiger, who faces the camera as the voice of his late father, Earl Woods, asks, "What did you learn?"
It has since been revealed Earl Woods' words were taken out of context from a 2004 quote about Tiger's mom Kultida.
"No wife is blind enough to miss that much infidelity," he wrote. "Elin had 2 b a willing participant on the ride 4 whatever reason. kids/lifestyle."
On Wednesday, Jim made several other pro-Tiger posts.
"If you really wanna see sexual disfunction get 2 know your favorite basketball star! Curling is the only safe sport 4 a married man!" he wrote.
