'The Founder' star tells The Hollywood Reporter he couldn't get on board with Joel Schumacher's take on the Caped Crusader after two films with Tim Burton, and walked away from a reported $15 million payday
Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever is often overlooked in the pantheon of Batman movies — but it’s one of the most visually brilliant of any of the Dark Knight’s big screen adventures.

The gracious and soft-spoken Sydney, Australia native, 47, shared stories with us from the past 25 years of her celebrated career, which includes three Oscar nominations, one Oscar win for The Hours, 10 Golden Globe nods, and the world record for longest continuous film shoot ever.
Tommy Lee Jones has fashioned an amazing career out of playing gruff, angry men, a character archetype not all that far removed from his off-screen demeanor.

Carrey, who stars in the upcoming Dumb and Dumber To, worked alongside Jones in the 1995 sequel, playing the Riddler to Jones’ Two-Face.
The terrifying Two-Face! My most recently finished colored pencil drawing. I know this is not everyone’s favorite portrayal, but I have a soft spot for him. It is also important to create things outside the realm of what is popular now.
