Jim Carrey credits girlfriend Jenny McCarthy's son, Evan, for teaching him how to love.
As he led 8,500 people through the streets of Washington, D.C., Wednesday, hand-in-hand with his daughter, Jane, McCarthy and Evan, the actor told PEOPLE, "He taught me how to love. And without Evan I might never have seen the greatness of Jenny's spirit."
Carrey added to the families, lawmakers and other activists gathered to raise awareness about toxins in vaccines that McCarthy is "the source of all that is good" in his life.
That, he explained to PEOPLE, is how he ended up on the front line of a political movement. "Jenny's friends would kind of hint around and say, 'Hey, it would be kind of cool if you got involved in this,' and I thought to myself, 'This is just so inevitable. This just can't not happen. If you care about the planet and about children, you have to."
I love seeing people of all kind, celebrities or not getting involved in environmental events. It was so great that all of them including the children were out to support this event and raise awareness for this issue. It seems that both of them are so happy and its truly great to see that. Both of them are funny people but I never thought that in either of their personal lives they were happy, now you never see them without a smile.
