Jim Carrey, never change.
The funnyman, known for his hilarious personality on and off-screen, gave E! News’ Catt Sadler a very awkward and memorable interview on the red carpet at Harper’s Bazaar‘s party celebrating Icons by Carine Roitfeld at the Plaza during New York Fashion Week Friday.
Carrey started off circling her while staring at her intently. Mid-interview, he did a brief James Brown impression.
“There’s no meaning to any of this,” he said. “So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am.”
Sadler pointed out that the party celebrates icons.
“I don’t believe in icons,” Carrey deadpanned.

“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 a commencement speech he gave Maharishi University of Management in Iowa in 2014, when he received an honorary doctorate for his achievements in the arts. The facility offers a “consciousness-based education.”
Carrey wore a zany patterned suit to the event.
“I didn’t get dressed up,” he said. “There is no me. There’s just things happening.”
This world, he added, is “not our world.”
“We don’t matter,” he said.
Despite his pessimistic outlook, Carrey actually has something to celebrate; Hours before the party, it was announced that the Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here, in which he serves as executive producer and which is based on his own experience in the stand-up comedy world in the ’70s, was picked up for a second season.

Jennifer Garner is using her star power to help kids in need.
On Friday, the superstar and mother of three paid a visit to Save the Children in Houston after Hurricane Harvey, the most powerful hurricane to hit Texas in more than 50 years, wreaked its havoc on the Lone Star State.
During the trip, Jennifer, who is on Save the Children’s Board of Trustees, visited Hilliard Elementary to help hand out donations to families who have young children in need.
After the visit, Jen took to her Instagram to share photos with her fans and write a touching message, “Today I was inspired by the huge hearts in Texas. There is a generosity of spirit that gets lost in political rhetoric, but– people come together in a time of crisis. You know what’s beautiful? Children look for light.”
The A-lister added, “Terrifying things have happened to these kids in the past couple of weeks, but they don’t want to dwell on those stories. They want to tell you that their neighbor’s puppy was found. That they saved their mother’s life by throwing her a rope when the flood water overcame her and now she’s ok. That they all celebrated when power came back on. We have to protect our kids and we have to learn from them.”
A rep for Save the Children tells E! News, “Jennifer was there for a day visit with children and families benefiting from Save the Children’s response. Our emergency response team has been on the ground in Texas since before the storm hit, working to meet children and families’ immediate needs. We also established child-friendly spaces in evacuation shelters and have been distributing essential supplies to those impacted.”
According to the organization’s press release, “Save the Children is the national leader in helping restore child care and early education centers after emergencies, and helped lead such efforts in Texas in 2008 in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike and in New Jersey and New York in 2012 in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.”
But Jen’s not the only celebrity who has donated time and/or money to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. JJ Watt, Kevin Hart, Pink and Sandra Bullock are just some of the famous faces who have given huge sums of money to help Hurricane Harvey relief.
Check out the other celebs who have given what they can to Harvey relief efforts…
