Jim Carrey, the famous Hollywood actor from movies like "The Mask", "Dumb and Dumber" and "The Truman Show," told an amazing story a few years ago involving the Virgin Mary. The video went recently went viral.
In Dec. 2014, Jim Carrey appeared on BBC One's "The Graham Norton Show," with actors Jeff Daniels and Jude Law, among others.
Carrey discussed his performance in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" where he performed alongside actress Kate Winslet.
The film is about an estranged couple who, through memory-erasing treatment, forgot each other and met again.
In this context, the show's host asked Carrey if he would like to revisit a particular memory from his past.
The actor then recalled a childhood memory in which he asked the Blessed Virgin Mary for something special.
Jim Carrey prayed to the Virgin and got a big surprise
This was the actor's story:
"There was an Irish teacher I had in second grade who said, 'When I want something, I pray to the Virgin Mary and ask her to ask God for it. I promise something in return, and I get whatever I want.'
"And then I thought: I need a bike!
"I went home and I prayed for a bike, and two weeks later, I walked into the living room, and there was a brand new Mustang bike with a banana seat and chopper handlebars sitting in the middle of the living room.
"I said: 'what's this?'
"And they said, 'you won it in a raffle!'
"And it turns out, I won it in a raffle that I never entered.
"A friend of mine went into a sporting goods store, and put my name into the raffle as well as his. And that was two weeks later.
"I've kind of been doing that a lot ever since."
Although, according to Beliefnet.com and other sources, Carrey was raised Catholic and later became a Presbyterian, the actor is not known to be a Christian.
In 2004, speaking to CBS's 60 Minutes , he told the interviewer: “I'm a Buddhist, I'm a Muslim, I'm a Christian. I am whatever you want me to be."
