Actor Jim Carrey has insisted he doesn’t exist, saying we are all just ideas…
Speaking to The Talks, Carrey talked about his interpretation of life, and admitted he was an ‘idea’ given to him by his parents.
He said: ‘ It took me a while and I was depressed going back into my concerns and my politics. But there was a shift that had already happened. And the shift was, ‘Wait a second, if I can put Jim Carrey aside for four months, who is Jim Carrey? Who the hell is that?”
He continues: ‘I know now he does not really exist. He’s ideas…Jim Carrey was an idea my parents gave me. Irish-Scottish-French was an idea I was given. Canadian was an idea I was given. I had a hockey team and a religion and all of these things that cobble together into this kind of Frankenstein monster, this representation. It’s like an avatar. These are all the things I am.’
Carrey has gone through some tough times lately, and is under investigation following the death of his ex-girlfriend.
