Actor Darren Barnet, who is known for playing ‘Paxton Hall-Yoshida‘ in the fan-favorite Netflix series ‘Never Have I Ever,‘ recently shared a post on Instagram about his admiration for Hollywood star Jim Carrey since he was little.
The actor who also played a leading role in 2020 dated ‘American Pie Presents: Girls’ Rules’ posted a TBT photo of himself, in which he is looking exactly like Jim Carrey with the actor’s signature mimics and his ‘Dumb and Dumber’ haircut.
Alongside the photo, Barnet wrote that seeing the 1994 American comedy movie starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels led him to change sort of things regarding his appearance:
“Fun fact: I was obsessed with Jim Carrey as a kid. After seeing ‘Dumb and Dumber’ I forced my mom to cut my hair like his character Lloyd for months.”
Admitting that he was obsessed with the well-known actor, Darren Barnet’s writings went on like this:
“I would then run around the house impersonating him tirelessly. It was a lifestyle.”
It should be very hard to deal with a figure like ‘Lloyd’ in real life and Barnet is aware of that because he thanks his mother for her ability to endure this kind of struggle:
“Thanks for putting up with that, Mom. 🤷♂️”
