Los Angeles, March 5 : Hollywood actor Jim Carrey went on a strict diet for his new film, "The Bncredible Burt Wonderstone" but didn't quite like the experience.
The 51-year-old feels getting in shape was difficult, reports contactmusic.com.
"It was tough to get in shape to play street magician Steve Gray, but now that we are done with shooting, I can regain the weight I lost," said Carrey.
Carrey, who appears shirtless in few scenes in the film, insisted that it won't be a regular thing, and joked: "I figured that its Matthew McConaughey's thing."
Carrey is not the only actor to undertake a tough diet for a role, Hugh Jackman had consumed nothing but water for 36 hours to prepare for "Les Miserables".
