Red carpet interviewers be forewarned… Jim Carrey appears to be in a bit of a weird, existential place right now.
Stopping the actor for a chat at the glitzy Harper’s Bazaar event for New York Fashion Week, Catt Sadler of E! News got a little more than the casual banter she was probably after.
Things started ominously when he began circling her a number of times, and then went downhill from there.
“There’s no meaning to any of this, so I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join, and here I am,” he explains.
“I don’t believe in personalities. I don’t believe that you exist. But there’s a wonderful fragrance in the air.”
After a short while of this less than network-friendly badinage, Sadler’s eyes take on a pleading quality, as if she is, perhaps, praying for it all to end.
“I mean, you gotta admit it’s pretty meaningless,” Carrey goes on.

He then barks out a bizarre catchphrase, explains that ‘we’re a field of energy dancing for itself’, before concluding with the bombshell: “We don’t matter. There’s the good news.”
She was probably hoping he’d just do some funny faces and say ‘alrighty then’. But no. Not today.
