Ever wish a celebrity would put their fist right through the glossy, plasticine sheen of Hollywood award shows and offhandedly unveil their complete and utter contempt for the saccharine talking heads asking who made their dinner jacket?
Your wish has been granted in the form of actor Jim Carrey, who at least proves these sorts of events can still be entertaining to watch.
“There’s no meaning to any of this,” he says pointedly to E! host Catt Saddler during a Harper’s Bazaar fashion week party ostensibly celebrating “Icons.”
Saddler tries to reel Carrey back into her tangled web of boilerplate red carpet queries, which only inspires him to slime her with a bit of off-the-cuff nihilism:
“I believe we’re a field of energy dancing for itself. And, uh… I don’t care. I don’t believe you exist. But there is a wonderful fragrance in the air … It’s not our world. We don’t matter. There’s the good news.”
As far as making these sort of events worthwhile again, it’s certainly a step in the right direction.
