He split from long-term girlfriend Jenny McCarthy last April after five years together, and has remained resolutely single since then.
But now it seems Jim Carrey may have found love again, judging by photographs of him leaving a theatre in New York hand-in-hand with former America's Next Top Model contestant Anchal Joseph.
And it's no wonder the 49-year-old actor struggled to hide his delight as he and Joseph left the cinema as, at just 24, the beauty is 25 years his junior.

And, despite being eliminated seventh in the competition, she is currently pursuing a modelling career in New York.
But while Carrey is undoubtedly keen to flaunt his new relationship, it seems the actor is well and truly back on the dating market, as he was reported to have gone on another theatre date last Wednesday night - this time with a pretty blonde woman.
A source told the New York Post the pair had gone to see Fuerza Bruta: Look Up in New York’s Union Square, but had arrived with two burly bodyguards to ensure they would not be photographed together.

The Canadian-born actor - star of hit comedies including Dumb and Dumber and Liar, Liar - started seeing the 37-year-old actress in 2005.
McCarthy later also posted a message on Twitter, writing: 'I'm so grateful for the years Jim and I had together.
'I will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.'
Twice-married, Carrey was previously engaged to Bridget Jones star Renee Zellweger.
