Jim Carrey Finally Embraced Nihilism, As We All Should

September 13, 2017

Jim Carrey

You probably noticed that Jim Carrey kind of halted his Hollywood career lately and decided to paint his newfound life using some different colors. Quite literally, though.

The actor-turned-painter has recently been making headlines due to his personal life, and his latest public appearance during New York Fashion Week proved the star is finally starting to realize and embrace the pointlessness of human existence.

No Meaning To Any Of This

While Carrey was walking down the red carpet, an interviewer for E! stopped the Canadian actor for a quick interview and got much more than she bargained for.

There’s no meaning to any of this,” Jim told the unsuspecting reporter. “I just wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join, and here I am. You’ve got to admit, this is completely meaningless.”

The poor reporter needed a few moments to recalibrate and tried to move the conversation in the “right” direction by asking him about the icons the event was celebrating, to which Jim responded:

Celebrating icons? Oh boy, that is just the lowest aiming possibility that we could come up with. Icons. Do you believe in icons? I believe in personalities. I don’t believe that you exist but there is a wonderful fragrance in the air.”

I don’t believe in icons. I don’t believe in personalities. I believe that peace lies beyond personality, beyond invention and disguise. I believe we’re a field of energy dancing for itself. And I don’t care.”

There Is No Me, We Don’t Matter

Blatantly frustrated and baffled, the reporter then asked Carrey why he would get dressed up for the occasion if he doesn’t believe in any of what that event is representing, to which he replied:

I didn’t get dressed up, there is no me. There are just things happening… Here’s the thing, it’s not our world. We don’t matter, there’s the good news.”
