Jim Carrey just turned the big 6-0 and is celebrating the only way he knows how: by making fans laugh out loud. The comedic icon honored his latest milestone with a Jimesque Tweet and one very hilarious video. Keep scrolling for all of the details on his big day - plus, why we'll be seeing the actor back on our screens sooner than you might expect.
Mr. Carrey rang in his 60th year on Earth on January 17. Lucky for us, we got to celebrate with him. Well, at least in the Twitterverse we did. But we'll take what we can get! "It's ma birthday! Woohoo! I'm old but I'm gold! Love you all!!!" the man, the myth, the legend tweeted. But the poetic message was accompanied by a hilarious video that was hands-down the cherry on top of the LOL-worthy post. Carrey imitated an elderly man's voice and pretended to have a toothless mouth as he said, "I'm 60 and sexy! And tonight, I'm having creamed corn and strained peaches." Check out the masterpiece for yourself below.

While Carrey has been a bit MIA in the last few years, he'll soon be making a comeback. The In Living Color star has reprised his role as Doctor Eggman in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which is set to hit screens come April 8. And Jim has also been dabbling in music: he narrates as a radio host on The Weeknd's latest album, Dawn FM. And while we can't wait to see the legendary actor back on our screens, we love to see him continue expanding his artistic aspirations. In case you missed it, Carrey has been spending his free time in recent years painting!
"I just didn't want to be in the business anymore," he told The Hollywood Reporter a few years back about why he took a step away from the spotlight. "I didn't like what was happening, the corporations taking over and all that. And maybe it's because I felt pulled toward a different type of creative outlet, and I really liked the control of painting - of not having a committee in the way telling me what the idea must be to appeal to a four-quadrant whatever." Happy 60th birthday, Jim!
