Last year, Jim Carrey had left the world shocked after he posted a rare picture on Twitter looking completely unrecognisable.

Sporting long hair and a huge grey beard, fans were in disbelief over his change in appearance.

But the Canadian-born actor seems to be back to his old self again, as he stepped out looking all loved up with his Kidding co-star, Ginger Gonzaga, at the Golden Globes yesterday.

Appearing relaxed and happy in a simple black suit, Carrey looked a world away from his past selfie supporting a fresh haircut and a cleanly shaven face.

The funnyman also went on to steal the show during the ceremony, after hosts Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg ejected him from the movie section of the audience.

The 56-year-old star played along with the skit - storming off to the TV section with his dinner, quipping that he doesn't want to "leave any DNA in the film section".

Talking about his life away from Hollywood in a candid interview at the end of 2018, twice-married Carrey said" "You could describe my home life as an isolated life. I spend a lot of time by myself but I like being by myself, so it’s OK. That might be strange to some people, but I enjoy it."

It has been a tough couple of years for Carrey, who found himself in the public eye a lot following the death of his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White.

While the Mask actor was left distraught when his on-and-off girlfriend took her own life, he was soon hit with a lawsuit by her mother and her ex-husband being blamed for her unexpected death.

In October, Brigid Sweetman filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Carrey, claiming he gave her daughter STD's during their relationship.

In December, Carrey filed legal documents demanding that the court dismiss the lawsuit, and said the allegations were for the purpose of harassing, embarrassing and humiliating him.

The case against him was dismissed at the beginning of 2018.
