Jim Carrey Tells His Favorite Bedtime Story As Only Jim Carrey Can

Sorry parents, Jim Carrey just set the bar really high for bedtime stories.

The actor and comedian recently appeared on "Ellen" to promote his new children's book called “How Roland Rolls”. It tells the story of a wave named Roland who is afraid of crashing into the shore.

Carrey said his inspiration for the book came from his father who used to tell his own bedtime stories. But as expected in the Carrey household, simply reading a book just won't do. He retold one of his dad's stories -- animated faces and all.

Obviously, we hope his next book comes with an audio edition, too.
