Jim Carrey was seduced into starring in the remake of Fun With Dick And Jane by his feisty co-star Tea Leoni.

The rubber-faced star confesses he hates remakes, but was convinced when told he would get to star alongside the 39-year-old blonde.

Carrey says: "Oh I hate remakes most of the time, but I was seduced by the idea.

"I thought it would be really fun for me and a really good actress to have a rebellious romp with.

"I love Tea, she's a total gamer who is willing to do anything and go anywhere, and I love the idea of a couple just throwing the rules out. I thought that was the fun thing about the movie - they get to throw the rules out and show the white collar creeps what it's like to get shafted."

Fun With Dick And Jane was originally made in 1977, starring George Segal and Jane Fonda.
