Does Jim Carrey Do BJJ?

There’s a rumor that JIm Carrey trains BJJ. He’s supposed to be a brown belt under Royce Gracie. However, these rumors are probably false.

I searched extensively on the internet, and the only ‘proof’ of JIm Carrey doing BJJ is a forum comment that somebody once saw him at a local MMA gym. And there’s the video below which has ‘Jim Carrey’ and ‘Jiu Jitsu’ in the title, but it’s about a Jim Carrey lookalike, as clearly the guy in the video is not Jim Carrey.

So Jim Carrey training BJJ is probably a myth. I couldn’t trace down where this myth originated from. Jim Carrey never commented on BJJ at all.

Jim Carrey BJJ Belt

Jim Carrey is said to be a BJJ brown belt under Royce Gracie, but this is probably false. There’s no photos or videos of Jim Carrey training BJJ. If he actually trained BJJ, there would probably be information available on it, given how famous Jim Carrey is. In all likelihood, Jim Carrey never trained BJJ a day of his life.
