This weekend, the pop culture news cycle confirmed what we’ve all been thinking for awhile now: Jim Carrey isn’t just eccentric, he appears to be unwell.
Complex reports that during an incredibly awkward Fashion Week interview with E! News‘ Catt Sadler, Carrey questioned the meaning of Fashion Week, the entertainment industry, and human existence, all in a two-minute interview on the red carpet at a Harper’s Bazaar party. The goal of the party was to celebrate icons, a theme which Carrey described as the “absolute lowest aiming possibility that we could come up with.”
Sadler, who impressively kept her cool throughout the interview, fired back and asked Carrey if he doesn’t believe that “certain icons have the power to make change, to inspire others.” She then acknowledged that he’s one of those such icons (which is probably how he scored an invite to the party), to which he replied “Get on the Good Foot,” in a James Brown-esque voice. Sadler was noticeably confused, but she attempted to steer the interview back on course, to no avail.
“I believe we’re a field of energy dancing for itself,” Carrey said, later insisting that he’s not real and nothing in the world matters. He then abruptly left, leaving Sadler visibly shaken.
