      I was always a Jim Carrey fan until he became political. His antics in the past few years just appear to be attempts to keep his name out there, when I wouldn't have thought he would need to do so. He used to be a great punchline; now he's just a joke.

    surprised that Jim's appearance on the Norm Macdonald podcast wasn't brought up during the later part of the video, it's basically that "there is no me" bullshit except instead of it being only a minute, it's an hour and a half and Jim mostly just rambles cutting off anything Norm has to say.

    The Truman Show was hella dark. I think The Cable Guy paved the way for that to be a viable role for him. Also I always loved The Cable Guy, especially the part where he admits his upbringing and how movies and TV shows raised him. It hits home for a lot of people, myself included from shitty parents and how shitty parents creates maladjusted individuals who aren't generally dangerous and are just weird and well, maladjusted.

    "At the time no-one had seen something quite so over the top" Ding! Wrong!! What Jim Carrey was doing in his first film and many of his later films was a Jerry Lewis impersonation. People in the 40s 50s and 60s had seen these over the top spastic antics of someone with severe emotional, mental, physical issues before, again and again from Jerry Lewis.

    When I first saw the "Icons" interview I had a similar reaction to Jim. I mean what the fuck, "we're celebrating icons"? Could you be more vague? What the hell does that even mean? Yes he was condescending and his tetrahedron bit cracked me up but he spoke his mind. He said what anyone else would be thinking but no one else had the balls to say it. Love you Jim.

    I personally believe Jim Carey's humor is too comical for this current generation. Back then we could actually distinguish comedy and learn to actually grow as people. Yeah we all knew they were offensive but we knew the jokes were just jokes and nothing more. However I've also had friends growing up learning that concept. Even if we made a rude offensive comment we were properly called out on it and we learned the difference in a joke versus being an asshole. However I do also believe we need Carey's humor more than ever so the world can learn to lighten up a bit. I also firmly believe Carey's humor before he went self indulged was an outlet. It wasn't until years later he woke up to realizing he had some kind of depression. Now he realizes the comedy is what helped him. He is regaining his humanity for his healthy personal well being. And Mr. Poppers penguins was actually a really good film I watched with my niece years ago.

    I think that no matter what, The Mask is still emblematic of Carrey and his career. On the one hand, you have his take on Stanley Ipkiss, which you see in his serious films like Truman Show, The Majestic, and Eternal Sunshine; on the other you have the Mask, as in Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber, and Batman Forever. And you have the 'true nature' of the Mask from the comics, that filters into the Cable Guy, Number 23, and some of his more violent outbursts in the development of Man on the Moon. You'll see a mix of the latter two in both Me, Myself, and Irene as well as his take on Dr. Robotnik/Eggman. If The Mask were the last film he made, we'd call it a perfect capstone. As it is, it's a guiding light to his oeuvre. I wish that at some point in the future, he can join those two important, poignant, and valid parts of himself together. The lesson to take from the Mask isn't to get rid of the zany wild side of yourself, it's to embrace it. To let Stanley be a bit nuts sometimes without going to the extremes of the Mask. That's what I see in his Robotnik, and what I see in him as he's gotten a grip on who he finally wants to be again.

    i will say this, for sure: people of fame, no matter where it comes from, or how it comes about. once they get so big, they will have an identity crisis. they will try ANYTHING to see if the person everyone knew them as, can change into something else. for better or for worse. it happens to basically EVERY giant star. but, eventually, they come back down. they stop the roles. and they become themselves again. i loved jim carry for who he was. and that isnt gone! its just...pushed beneath. for now.

    Hot Take: While Comedian Jim Carrey is fine, I was blown away by his dramatic material and his awakening. I think his awakening is inspiring to me. As someone who has spent their life depressed, it was great to see him struggle so hard in the same way. I don't think he is crazy, I think he is actually really intelligent. The smartest people can act like idiots sometimes.
