Jim Carrey brought Christmas to the French Riviera on Monday (18May09) after transforming the Cannes Film Festival into a winter wonderland to promote his new movie A Christmas Carol.
The funnyman arrived at a yuletide-themed photo call in a horse-drawn carriage before frolicking in the fake powder at the sun-drenched Carlton Hotel beside the Mediterranean Sea.
Carrey, who plays Ebenezer Scrooge in the Disney film, even scooped clumps of the pretend flakes into snowballs, which he pelted at castmates Colin Firth and Robin Wright Penn.
Studio bosses have launched a seven-month promotional campaign for the 3D remake, which will even feature a train tour across the U.S. leading up to the film's November (09) release.
