She may have been unknown in India till just a few days ago, but Hollywood actor Jim Carrey’s Indian girlfriend, Anchal Joseph, is now hot property on the internet.
Hundreds of people have joined her fan-page ever since photos of her getting cosy with Carrey were published. Candid shoots of the model are being circulated among fansites and on Facebook groups. “Yay! I am your 1647th fan,” reads a comment on Facebook. “Keep up the good work,” wrote Pawan on her fanpage.
The limelight has also sparked controversy over a comment made by Joseph in 2006. She had said that she wore blue lenses as “people with lighter hair, skin and eyes were perceived better looking in India.”
“I’m sorry to hear about India’s self loathing over darker skin,” wrote user Munly Lwong. “She moved to America at six, what mindset is she talking about?” says Satish.
