In 2020, Jim Carrey tried his hand at writing and came out with a novel called “Memoirs and Misinformation.”While it was officially fiction, “The Truman Show” star drew on his personal life to fashion the story, and one part of the book harkened back to his relationship with Renée Zellweger, whom he characterized in the book as the love of his life.
Howard Stern spoke with Carrey on his SiriusXM radio show that year, where the Canadian funnyman admitted, “She definitely was special to me, very special, I think she’s lovely.” When Stern added that he felt Carrey was saying that he regretted messing up the relationship and that Zellweger was “the one that got away,” the “In Loving Color” star made sure to clarify, “I don’t regret, I don’t have those things, but I do appreciate the people that have come through my life for the good that they gave me.”
The “Judy” star went on have romances with a slew of famous names after Carrey. She walked down the aisle with country crooner Kenny Chesney in 2005 (and divorced him the same year), and also had a two-year relationship with “A Star Is Born” director Bradley Cooper after meeting on the set of “Case 39” in 2009, per Harper’s Bazaar. She was also linked to White Stripes frontman Jack White in 2003 after they met on the set of “Cold Mountain,” per People.
