On Monday, he surprised fans when he stepped out sporting a new clean-cut look, after shaving off his notoriously bushy beard.
And Jim Carrey continued to sport his far less hirsute makeover on Tuesday afternoon, when he stepped out at the Venice Film Festival.
The 55-year-old screen star – who is currently embroiled in a wrongful death lawsuit surrounding his late ex-girlfriend Cathriona White – appeared to be in decidedly jovial spirits as he flashed a broad grin while waving at onlookers.

Jim has sailed into Venice for the world premiere of his documentary Jim and Andy: The Great Beyond, which recounts the creative process he masterminded during production of 1999 Andy Kaufman biopic Man On The Moon.
The star received critical acclaim for his portrayal of the late entertainer, winning a prestigious Golden Globe.

On Monday, Jim shocked onlookers when he stepped out sporting his new clean-shaven look, after wearing mounds of facial hair.
Back in May, the then-bearded star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he joked about his facial hair, saying: ‘It’s a bigger star than me. It has its own Twitter.’
The comedian then went even further during his late night TV show interview.
With host Jimmy looking on, he joked: ‘The question is not, “Why are you growing a beard?” The question is, “Why am I growing a beard and still shaving my b***s?”

Away from his work commitments, the Canadian-born star has been embroiled in a wrongful death lawsuit surrounding his ex Cathriona, who took her own life on September 25, 2015.
A year later, her mother and estranged husband filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Hollywood actor.
In documents obtained by DailyMail.com last month, Cathriona told her therapist she wanted to ‘have it all stop’ as she struggled to eat and sleep while dealing with constant vomiting that was caused by the anxiety she was experiencing from her relationship with the actor.
That admission was made on July 18, 2013 and included in medical records from White’s doctors that have been subpoenaed by lawyers for both Carrey and White’s mother Brigid Sweetman in her wrongful death lawsuit against the actor.

Session notes and text messages obtained by DailyMail.com that span from October 2012 to July 2013 reveal that Cathriona White had been seeing Carrey for just six months when he suddenly broke off the relationship, a move that came after White had been tested for STDs but before she had received her results.
The results came back positive soon after, and White told her therapist that she had contracted the STDs from Carrey, claiming that she questioned bumps on his genitals before her first outbreak but he dismissed them as irritation from shaving.
Text messages from White to Carrey show a similar exchange as well between the two at this time.

‘These contemporaneous notes prove what we have said along and show what kind of person Carrey really is,’ Sweetman’s lawyer Michael Avennati told DailyMail.com in a statement. ‘His claims of innocence relating to Ms. White are bogus and shameful.’
The notes from January 30 also reveal that White ‘wishes [Carrey] would marry her as her promised so that she can work and be more self-sufficient.’
That surprising admission came just 15 days after White wed estranged husband Mark Burton in Las Vegas.
‘The thing that becomes clear is that she is extremely upset because she wanted Jim to marry her,’ said a source close to the case. And the reason she wanted to Jim to marry her is so that she could stay in the country.’
