Hollywood star Jim Carrey has slapped a law suit on an Australia magazine for falsely suggesting that he sexually harassed a number of actresses. In a Woman's Day article, published last year, it was claimed that actresses Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Tilly, Drew Barrymore and Courtney Love all refused to work with him because of his outlandish behaviour. The Truman Show star scored a minor victory in the court case this week when a Supreme Court judge rejected a submission by the magazine's lawyers that the article headlined 'Hollywood Stars Ban Groper Jim' meant that Carrey was "psychologically unstable". Justice John Hedigan said "the phrase psychologically unstable is so wide as to be virtually meaningless", and disallowed this aspect of the defence. Carrey is suing for defamation, claiming the implied he was crude, lewd and behaved badly in both his personal and professional lives. The case is expected to go before a jury at a later date.
