Jim Carrey stopped to chat with E! News on the red carpet at a New York Fashion Week event and the final result is bizarre but also incredible.
Carrey begins the interview by stating, “There’s no meaning to any of this so I I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could find to come to and join, and here I am. I mean you got to admit … it’s completely meaningless.”
Reporter Catt Sadler responds, “Well, they say they’re celebrating icons and …”
“That is just the absolute lowest aiming possibility, you know, that we could come up with. It’s like icons. What, do you do believe in icons? I don’t believe in personalities. I don’t believe that you exist but there is a wonderful fragrance in the air.’
Sadler struggles, but she does a pretty good job of challenging Carey’s frame of reference.
“You don’t believe certain icons have the power to make change, to think differently, to be bold, to inspire others… artistry? You’re one of them!”
Carrey next gives some impersonations and voices.
“No, I don’t believe in icons,” he says. “I don’t believe in personalities. I believe that peace lies beyond personality, beyond invention in disguise, beyond the red ‘S’ that you wear on your chest that makes bullets bounce off. I believe that it’s deeper than that. I believe we’re a field of energy dancing for itself and I don’t care.”
Sadler bats backs, “But Jim you got really dressed up for the occasion you look good. Was that an accident?”
Carrey responds, “There’s just things happening and there are clusters of tetrahedrons moving around together.”
He continues, “So, what’s happening in our world right now cause there is a lot of news that actually is relevant that’s not that uplifting…”
“Here’s the thing,” he concludes, “it’s not our world. We don’t matter, we don’t matter. There’s the good news.”
