Update: This story has proven to be inaccurate as recent interviews have proven that Carrey was indeed a fan of the band.
Every metalhead's favorite scene in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is the one where Cannibal Corpse is playing in the club and Carrey gets up on stage and parties with them (embedded above). For the longest time, it was rumored that Carrey himself asked for the band to appear in the movie as he is a big fan. Well, rumor SMASH! Carrey is not a fan. Jim's son-in-law, who himself is in the metal band BLOOD MONEY finally put the rumors to rest in a comment on a Blabbermouth post:
"For the record, Jim hates death metal… He'd never heard of CANNIBAL until doin' that movie. Trust me, it's the first thing I asked him when we met."
There you have it! After years and years, all it took was a metal dude shtooping his daughter to find out the true answer to the question Is Jim Carrey a metal fan.
Update: Actually, there are reports to the contrary.
