Just imagine working on the red carpet for a big event and a lot of celebrities, models, industry giants are walking around you. You will have to catch them as they pass by for a quick interview and there’s probably a list of questions you have to go through, making some little changes depending on who you’re talking to. But if the person on the red carpet is Jim Carrey, then you can throw all the planning you did, out of the window.
When Carrey turned up at a red carpet event for New York Fashion week just a few days ago, one of these interviewers approached him to ask some questions. Even though no one would really expect to find him at this event, the E! News’ Catty Sadler ran with it. The interview began with him spinning around and circling her. Tell me, why am I not surprised…
The event was held at the Harper’s Bazaar Party which was meant to be celebrating icons this year. So, Sadler starts off by asking what was going on, or if he needed a date to the event. He insists that he’s fine and then things take a surprising turn…
“There’s no meaning to any of this,” he says out of the blue, and things only get stranger from there…
“There’s no meaning to any of this. I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am. You’ve got to admit it’s pretty meaningless?”
Then, she tells him that the meaning of this event is to celebrate icons.
“Celebrating icons, boy! That is just the absolute lowest-aiming possibility that we could come up with. Icons… do you believe in icons? I don’t believe in personalities. I don’t believe that you exist, but there is a wonderful fragrance to the air.”
Then, when she asks him whether he thinks icons have the ability to change the world pointing out that he has a similar role as an artist, he says:
“I don’t believe in icons. I don’t believe in personalities. 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’re a field of energy dancing for itself, and err… I don’t care.”

A lot of commenters think that this is a much-needed takedown of the fashion industry. Others are very worried about what he had to say and his emotional and mental condition.
He, signs out by adding:
“We don’t matter – there’s the good news,” and disappears off camera.
