Jim Carrey Injured Tongue Filming ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ Hot Dog Scene

0

Jim Carrey suffered a painful injury on his tongue while filming a bizarre hot dog scene for Dumb and Dumber To.

The actor reprises his role as the dimwitted Lloyd Christmas in the sequel to the beloved comedy, and his character’s offbeat high jinks are still the same 20 years after the first installment.

During a scene in which Lloyd comically shoves a mustard-slathered hot dog in his mouth, Carrey revealed that he literally bit off more than he could chew.

He tells Ellen DeGeneres, “I ate 36 hot dogs to do that scene. I thought it was a good idea to have them on the set and I ate a couple before it (filming) began.

“I actually bit entirely through my tongue during that take, but I just kept going – because we suffer for comedy. And I also inhaled a chunk of hot dog into my lung and for the next three weeks on the movie, I went around gagging – and I couldn’t get it out!”
