Carrey Questions Sarah's Faith, Releases "Artwork" Only a Sick Mind Would Create

Path 27

There are occasions I feel bad for Jim Carrey. Among the long list of people for whom Hollywood and fame have not been good for their mental health, Carrey is certainly at the top of the list.

Carrey’s craziness once seemed of the playful sort; when The Onion referred to him as a “rubber-faced fartsmith,” we all assumed that was just a persona. And it was — for a while.

Now Carrey doesn’t really star in anything, mostly due to the fact that he seems to have lost contact with the planet earth and gives interviews so incoherent they would even give Jaden Smith pause.

Oh, and he’s also doing artwork. Political artwork. Because if there’s anyone I think should be making grand, nuanced political statements, it’s the guy behind “Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls.”

His usual targets are members of the Trump administration, surprise of surprises. And his latest target is White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who he portrays as a sort of ghoul:

“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” Carrey said along with the release of the portrait.

Now, quite frankly, it’s slightly difficult to take the artistic pronouncements on anyone’s religion seriously when:

a) the portrait looks like it was done in ten minutes on a glitchy iPad 2, and…

Do you think Jim Carrey's portrait is offensive?

b) it comes from someone who once said, and I quote: “As an actor you play characters, and if you go deep enough into those characters, you realize your own character is pretty thin to begin with. You suddenly have this separation and go, ‘Who’s Jim Carrey?’ Oh, he doesn’t exist actually. There’s just a relative manifestation of consciousness appearing, and someone gave him a name, a religion, a nationality, and he clustered those together into something that’s supposed to be a personality, and it doesn’t actually exist. None of that stuff, if you drill down, is real.”

Yeah, man. Yeah.

The point is that our dime-store Chinese-knockoff Hegel probably isn’t the guy to be judging other people’s religious beliefs or whether they “lie for the wicked.” But hey, if “none of that stuff, if you drill down, is real,” what is a lie anyway?

So that disqualifies him from talking about religion, but we should also consider that his past “artwork” regarding the Trump administration should probably also disqualify him from any serious consideration as a political artist.

Again, I feel slightly bad about this. This is not a well man.

Then again, Trump has exposed a lot of people in Hollywood who aren’t particularly well-adjusted. If you don’t believe me, follow Cher’s Twitter account.

In Jim Carrey’s case, I can only fall back on the sage wisdom of that eminent psychiatrist, Lucy Van Pelt: “The mere fact that you realize you need help indicates that you’re not too far gone.”

Jim Carrey, apparently, does not believe he needs help. I’m just going to leave that out there for summary judgment.
