Jim Carrey and Ewen McGregor

Actors Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor were honored Monday as knights in France’s prestigious National Order of Arts and Letters.

The two are currently in Paris to promote their upcoming gay romance, “I Love You Phillip Morris.”

Carrey plays a con man who meets the love of his life (McGregor) in prison, then comes up with elaborate escapes and masquerades to free himself and his man. The film is based on a true story.
