Jim Carrey gives cringe-worthy NYFW interview, calls everything 'meaningless'

That interview went south super quickly.

E! News reporter Catt Sadler spoke with Jim Carrey at a New York Fashion Week party and was, understandably, surprised by the comedian's responses—though she kept her composure like a pro.

The interview, which was conducted outside of Harper's Bazaar's ICONS event in Manhattan, began with Carrey circling Sadler like a shark. Then, once the man came to a stop, Sadler asked how the Dumb and Dumber star came to be at NYFW, given that he's not exactly known for his passion for fashion.

"There's no meaning to any of this," Carrey responded. "So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am. You got to admit, it's completely meaningless."

When Sadler countered that people were there celebrating the night's icons, Carrey, 55, exclaimed, "Celebrating icons? Boy, that's just the absolute lowest aiming possibility that we could come up with … I don't believe that you exist but there is a wonderful fragrance in the air."

"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," Carrey continued, after he attempted a James Brown impression.

And, when Sadler tried to steer the conversation back to fashion, complimenting Carrey on his stylish suit, the actor said, "I didn't get dressed up."

"There is no me," he explained. "There's just things happening. And there are clusters of tetrahedrons moving around together."

…Okay?

Maybe Carrey's just trying to joke around, embracing the absurd and the existentialist in an attempt to find humor? Or maybe the death of his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White—and the subsequent wrongful death lawsuit filed against him—is just taking a toll on him.
