When you think of New York Fashion Week, you probably don’t think of Jim Carrey. And apparently, he isn’t a big fan of the event either. Carrey gave a hilariously awkward interview at an NYFW party on Friday night thrown by Harper’s Bazaar, and we have questions.
It was the kind of interview that makes you question why he even bothered showing up to NYFW.
Hmm. To quote Jim Carrey himself: Alrighty then.
The New York Fashion Week party was certainly a star-studded event. Other celebrities in attendance included Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner, and Nicki Minaj. But Carrey said he didn’t even connect with the theme of the event: Harper’s Bazaar Celebrates ICONS by Carine Roitfeld.
The whole thing was pretty awkward. Interviewer Catt Sadler handled it as best she could. At the end, Carrey just touched her shoulders and walks off.
Here’s the bizarre interview in full.
In fairness, Carrey has had a rough time as of late.
In 2015, his girlfriend Cathriona White died by suicide, and her family sued him for her wrongful death. He could go to trial next year.
It sounds like the actor is working through some tough circumstances. We wish him the best — but maybe he should sit out next year’s NYFW parties.
