Jim Carrey withdraws support of his latest movie

Kick-Ass 2 will be in theaters August 16 but its star, Jim Carrey, has withdrawn his support of the film, pointing to its excessive violence for his ambivalence.

The 41-year-old actor made his remarks via Twitter, making mention of the impact that the Sandy Hook tragedy had on him.

Carrey has been outspoken on the issue of gun control, over the last six months, calling for increased measures that would prohibit massacres like December's Sandy Hook shooting.

An executive producer of the film, Mark Millar, wrote on his personal blog that he was "baffled" by Carrey's statements, defending the picture while pointing out that it "isn't a documentary." Millar also calls Kick-Ass 2 "fiction fun" in the post.
