Canadian-American actor Jim Carrey attended a Ney York Fashion Week party despite thinking it’s such a meaningless thing to do.
While at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party, the actor told E!’s Catt Sadler in an interview that he was only present at the event because it was “the most meaningless thing that I could come to.”
Apparently, Carrey was looking for something useless to do with his time and the party was just there to help him out. At the event celebrating icons by Carine Roitfeld, Carey gave what could be considered one of the most awkward interviews in the history of celebrities.
When Sadler from E! News and Daily Pop stopped the Dumb and Dumber actor on the red carpet to find out why he ventured out to a NYFW event and well, he made it clear he doesn’t have any idea why he even bothered to come.
He started off by saying that he wanted to “find the most meaningless thing I could come to and join and here I am.” The actor said, adding that “It’s completely meaningless.”
Nevertheless, Sadler tried to make him understand that the event aims at celebrating icons, but Carrey had something even more bizarre to chip in – “that is just the absolute lowest aiming, you know, possibility that we can come up with.”
Carrey then asked a dumbfounded Sadler if she believed in icons. However, before she had a chance to answer his question, he beat her to it and said; “I don’t believe in personalities. I don’t believe that you exist. … I believe we’re a field of energy dancing for itself and I don’t care. I believe that peace lies beyond personalities, beyond invention and disguise, beyond the red ‘S’ you wear on your chest, that makes bullets bounce off, I believe that it’s deeper than that. I believe we are a field of energy dancing for itself and I don’t care.””
Things got even more awkward when Sadler tried to turn things around by complementing Carrey on his fancy patterned suit.
The 55-year-old concluded: “I didn’t get dressed up. There is no me. We don’t matter.”
By the time the interview was over, Sadler looked like she’s in need of counseling.
