Actor Jim Carrey, who celebrated his 49th birthday on Jan. 17, is dating young model Anchal Joseph, aged 24.
The new couple was photographed together on Thursday in New York when he was leaving from Broadway play Time Stands Still, starring Laura Linney and Christina Ricci.
The actor’s new flame was born in New Delhi, India. She had a few weeks of glory in 2006 when she participated in the reality show America’s Next Top Model. She didn’t, however, won the coveted title.
Anchal Joseph is a year older than her lover’s daughter, Jane Carrey, 23, who gave birth to a boy last year. Jim Carrey then became a grandfather for the first time. His grand-son, Jackson Riley Santana was born in Los Angeles on February 26, 2010.
Last April, Jim Carrey announced his split from actress Jenny McCarthy on his Twitter page.
“Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best!” he wrote.
It was on a very friendly tone that McCarthy confirmed the news, a few minutes later. “I’m so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.”
Since then, Jenny dated bodybuilder Jason Toohey for four months before hooking up with sports agent Paul Krepelka.
