In perhaps the most bizarre red-carpet interview to date, comedic actor Jim Carrey throws E! News reporter Catt Sadler for a loop with a painfully awkward, two-minute nihilistic rant.
Sadler first approached Carrey at the Harper's Bazaar's ICONS party at the Plaza Hotel in New York City for Fashion Week on Friday. But the legendary comedian was not interested in speaking about or celebrating such "icons." He instead opted to mock the event and inform Sadler that nothing matters and that we aren't real.
As Carrey walked around the E! News host in circles, Sadler jokingly asked if it's "true" he's in need of a date.
Carrey decided to go left field with his reply: "There's no meaning to any of this. So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing I could come to, and join. And here I am. I mean, you've got to admit, it's completely meaningless."
"They say they're celebrating icons," said Sadler, doing her best to navigate the interview. "Do you believe in icons?"
"I don't believe in icons," Carrey replied. "I don't believe that you exist."
"I believe that peace lies beyond personality, beyond invention in disguise, beyond that red 'S' you wear on your chest that makes bullets bounce out," he continued.
Carrey would later explain, "There is no me. There are clusters of tetrahedrons moving around together."
As Sadler finally escaped the interview, Carrey patted her on the shoulder and said, "We don't matter. That's the good news."
