Hollywood comedian Jim Carrey reportedly hired a look-alike to throw paparazzi off his trail during a trip to Israel. Carrey arrived in Israel unannounced last week, touring the country for several days. According to Yediot Achronot, he achieved privacy by having an Israeli look-alike, Amir Garfunkel, hole up in a luxury Jerusalem hotel usually favored by foreign celebrities.
