Who knew big name celebrities love Upstate New York as much as we do?

It's not often you see well-known singers or movie stars hanging around in Upstate New York. If anything, they are just in New York City and enjoying everything the Big Apple has to offer. But sometimes they venture a little further, all the way up to our neck of the woods.

And you won't believe who was up here this time.

No Way... Jim Carrey!

Yes... it's actually him. Not a lookalike, not a doppelgänger.

Jim Carrey was just recently spotted in Upstate New York, visiting Sound Healing Adirondacks in Old Forge. Anyone would be surprised to see him walking through the front door, but not as much as owner Andrea Lisette Villiere.

She's been an active and certified Sound Healing Practitioner since 2015, living her dream in Old Forge. Andrea just loves following her passion, little did she know she'd get the chance to meet "Mr. Grinch" himself.

As you can tell, she had a lot of fun with him too.

Though it is certainly not common, there have been quite a few celebrities spotted in Upstate New York over the past year. And all of them were enjoying their time here.
