Turner: Dumb and Dumber To sillier

Kathleen Turner has said working on Dumb And Dumber To was a lot of fun, thanks to a silly script and her talented co-stars.

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are returning to their roles as two dim-witted friendsi n the sequal to the 1994 film Dumb And Dumber. This time they will set out in search of a long-lost child in hopes of gaining a kidney.

Romancing The Stone star Kathleen will also appear in the sequel, due out later this year, and said she had had a blast working alongside the comedians.

She explained: "Well, I love them both. Jim was in Peggy Sue Got Married (which Katheleen also appeared in) years ago. And Jeff I've known through New York and theatre for years, although I don't think we've actually worked together long term, we've done some readings, things like that.

"They're both very fine actors and it was good to be with them. It's very silly, very silly."

Kathleen, who voiced Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, added of how she chooses roles: "The script is always number one, but I think second to that would be the people because you know, I decided I'm too old to work with idiots any more, so it's got to be people I want to be with."

Kathleen is currently starring opposite Ian McDiarmid in play Bakersfield Mist in London's West End, as a woman living in a trailer park who believes she has stumbled across a Jackson Pollock artwork and invites an expert to view it.

:: Bakersfield Mist is at the Duchess Theatre in London from May 27.
