Well, that was weird. Jim Carrey made fans’ heads spin when we launched into a super awkward rant while chatting with E! News’ Catt Sadler at a New York Fashion Week party. In his bizarre mutterings, the 55-year-old actor suggested that the world we live in is merely a figment of our imagination.
"There's no meaning to any of this," Jim told Catt, 43, on the red carpet for Harper's Bazaar's party celebrating Icons by Carine Roitfeld on Friday, Sept. 8. ”So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am.”
In response, Catt told the comedian that the fashion fête was meant to celebrate today’s icons, to which Jim shot back, “I don’t believe in icons.” Later in his conversation with Catt, the Mask star inexplicably broke into a James Brown impression. He then echoed sentiments he made during his commencement speech at Iowa’s Maharishi University of Management in 2014.
"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,” he said, paraphrasing the oration he gave at the school, which offers a "consciousness-based education.”

Seemingly unsure of what to say next, Catt then complimented Jim on the eccentric blazer he decided to wear to the event. "I didn't get dressed up. There is no me. There's just things happening,” he responded, adding that “the world is not our world” and that “we don’t matter.”
OK, then. Despite his oddly negative outlook on life, Jim actually has something to smile about. It was recently announced that his Showtime series, I’m Dying Up Here, was renewed for a second season.
