Jim Carrey put his wacky humour into practice on Bruce Almighty co-star MORGAN FREEMAN - by giving him a bizarre welcome to his native Canada.

Freeman, who plays God in the hit comedy, recently arrived in Vancouver to begin filming AN UNFINISHED LIFE with Robert Redford and Jennifer Lopez, where he encountered an unusual welcome.

A fully outfitted Canadian Mountie rode up to Freeman on a horse on the set of the movie and told him, "I think you're neat, and according to the tracking, there are hundreds more that feel the same way. Now I have a hug for you sir."

After embracing an amused Freeman, the Mountie added, "Welcome to Canada, the home of Jim Carrey."
