Jim hits red carpet after split with Irish girlfriend Cathriona

Newly-single Jim Carrey walked the red carpet alone last night at the premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone in LA.

Wearing aviator sunglasses, shiny silver boots and a pale suit jacket, Jim (51) smiled as he signed autographs and chatted with crowds of fans.

Earlier this week, the Ace Ventura actor confirmed that he had split from his Irish girlfriend – make-up artist Cathriona White (26).

Tipperary native Cathriona met Jim in LA before Christmas and the two fell head-over-heels for each other.

They were snapped frolicking in the waves and looking completely loved up on a beach in Malibu last year. The pair have since gone their separate ways, but Jim still speaks highly of Cathriona.

"I did go out with an Irish girl," he said. "We're not seeing each other anymore. But she is lovely."



Jim was joined on the red carpet by Olivia Wilde, Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi and Alan Arkin.

Irish-American actress Olivia (29) looked spellbinding in a plunging black backless Gucci gown.

Earlier this week, Olivia said Ireland made a lasting impression on her.

"I miss the people most," she said. "I even miss rainy days."
