Jim Carrey fired up the internet when he gave a bizarre interview during his attendance at the #New York Fashion Week on Friday. The actor-comedian, who arrived in a shiny blue suit, dubbed the Harper's Bazaar Icons party "completely meaningless" while goofing around with an interviewer.

Comedian worries fans over bizarre interview

According to Hollywood Reporter, the celebrity stated that he was looking for the "most meaningless" event he could attend and found himself at the New York Fashion Week.

"That is just the absolute lowest aiming, you know, possibility that we can come up with. I don't believe in personalities. I don't believe that you exist. ... I believe we're a field of energy dancing for itself and I don't care. I didn't get dressed up. There is no me," he insisted.

The comedian said the same thing when he was playing as Andy Kaufman for "Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond"- "The Story of #Jim Carrey & Andy Kaufman Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton" documentary that premiered at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month.

He claimed that "Jim Carrey didn't exist" during the filming process and described the whole experience as "psychotic at times." The public weighed in on the comedian's recent statements and took to social media to share what they think of him.

Carrey steps out after controversial statements

After his attendance at the New York Fashion Week, the 55-year-old actor was seen at a TIFF talk where he joined Chris Smith and Danny Gabai for a chat session. Jim Carrey channeled a leather jacket paired with a white printed shirt and black pants for an overall dandy look.

On the same day, he attended the "Jim And Andy: The Great Beyond" premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada.

The scandal-ridden comedian shocked the attendees and the media when he kissed a Tony Clifton impersonator on the lips upon his arrival at the venue.

Meanwhile, Jim Carrey recently opened up about his personal struggles and how he managed to handle them with "food and sex and noise and gadgets," until he eventually learned to accept them.

"I've gone through it and I'm telling you, you don't survive it. You don't come out of it on the other side. You might come out of it with a body, but there's no you attached to it," he said. #Twitter
