So this… this is creepy. According to The AV Club, Jim Carrey (he of the talking butt routine, as well as the “watch me be really serious and dramatic in this movie and please forget that I used to talk out of my butt” routine) has released a video on YouTube wherein he professes his love for young actress Emma Stone, and then proceeds to describe how he would seduce her, were he not pushing 50.
Weird, no? Check it out:
While it seems Carrey is simply kidding (but, as the AV Club points out, it appears to be “like when you’re barking up the tree of a hot female acquaintance that clearly has no interest in you, and you’re like, ‘Ha ha, wouldn’t it be funny if we slept together? That would be hilarious,’” kind of way), it’s still a little, well, odd. Carrey made an explanation via Twitter:
“Yes, my msg to Emma Stone was a comedy routine and the funniest part is that everything i said is tru [sic].”
You know, I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that not every celebrity needs to celebrate the wonder that it social media—I just can’t get his creepy, unblinking stare out of my head (ok, that’s more because of the terrible The Number 23 film, but still).
What do you think of Carrey’s video?
