Jim Carrey's creepy history with women: From wanting babies with Emma Stone to dreaming about killing his own mom
The 'Bruce Almighty' actor has quite the record when it comes to displaying all sorts of inappropriate behavior where women are concerned.
On Wednesday, February 12, Jim Carrey was slammed on Twitter for telling a female journalist that she was the only thing that was left for him to do on his bucket list. The 'creepy' exchange happened when the 58-year-old comic actor was being interviewed about his role in the upcoming movie, 'Sonic the Hedgehog' by Charlotte Long of Heat Magazine, who later posted the interview on Twitter, Page Six reported.
“In the film, Sonic has a bucket list. I was wondering, after all you’ve done in your career and in your life, is there anything still left on your bucket list?” asked Long, to which Carrey replied, “Just you. That’s it, it’s all done now.”
At his response, Long burst out laughing and covered her mouth. “Wow,” Long responded. “I don’t know what to say to that!
“Just own it,” Carrey added, as he too joined in the laughter.
People on Twitter reacted strongly to the video of the interview, calling Carrey 'creepy' among other things.
“Look up ‘sleazeball’ in the dictionary and there’s a photo of @JimCarrey,” one user wrote on Twitter, while another said, “Such a huge [fan] of @jimcarrey but lost respect for him today. This is really unacceptable, I wish and hope he apologizes to you. But you handled it really well, more power to you!”
As it turns out, the 'Bruce Almighty' actor has quite the record when it comes to inappropriate behavior where women are concerned.
Carrey's creepy compliment to Margot Robbie
When Carrey appeared on the 'Graham Norton Show' to promote his movie last month, alongside Robbie – who was promoting her latest film, 'Suicide Squad' follow-up Birds of Prey' – he said, jokingly: “You’re really something, Margot Robbie. It’s incredible you got as far as you have with your obvious physical disadvantages. That’s pure talent there. That’s a talent override there.”
Although the Harley Quin actress chose to let the comment slide and did not react to it on the show, many social media users ripped Carrey online for the tone-deaf joke.
“Margot Robbie should win an Oscar for pretending to like Jim Carrey," one tweeted.
Carrey wanting to have babies with Emma Stone
In 2011, Carrey professed his love for actress Emma Stone in what many thought was done in an inappropriate way even though it was done as a joke.
“Emma, I think you’re all the way beautiful. Not just pretty, but smart and kind-hearted. And if I were a lot younger, I would marry you. We would have chubby little freckle-faced kids, we’d laugh all day long, go camping and play Yahtzee. Tell ghost stories by the fire," he said in the video.
He added: "And every day, for the rest of your life, you would thank God that I was the appropriate age for you. But I’m not. I’m 49. I have lines on my face, sometimes a little gray in my beard, and it takes me a little bit longer to pee than it used to."
Carrey publicly shamed Tiger Woods's ex-wife
After the news broke that at Tiger Woods cheated on his Norwegian wife, Elin Nordegren, Carrey took to Twitter to call out the latter for not realizing sooner that her husband was cheating on her.
"No wife is blind enough to miss that much infidelity. Elin had 2 b a willing participant on the ride 4 whatever reason," Carrey tweeted.
Lastly, he had dreams about killing his mother
In a 1995 interview with Rolling Stone, he said that after his family down from Canada to live with him, following his first big break on the NBC sitcom Duck Factory, all was not smooth-sailing. When things got rough and Carrey didn't want them to live with him anymore, he began thinking about murdering his mom.
"I ran out of patience, and I had to move them back to Canada. I was having bad dreams – I was strangling my mother in my sleep. I still supported them until I ran out of money. I went bankrupt," he said.
