Hollywood funnyman Jim Carrey is thrilled Playboy model CARLA ALAPONT refused to marry DAVID SCHWIMMER - because she's now the LIAR LIAR star's girlfriend.

The actor, 42, is inseparable from the 24-year-old and has helped her through her depression following her break-up with the FRIENDS star last Christmas (03).

A close friend says Carrey has "put a smile back on Carla's face" ever since.
