Jim Carrey is having a nervous breakdown

April 12th, 2010 // 72 Comments

Because chucking bricks at Elin Woods wasn’t enough Twitter fun for Jim Carrey, he’s taken to firing weird late night tweets where he refers to himself as characters from his movies. Not at all an exaggeration:

RT Breaking News!Jim Carrey’s ambassador to the world,is dead!He is survived by me,the actual Jim Carrey,who has opinions about stuff.—>
…I am grateful for my avatar’s many yrs of dedicated service, but nowone has ever won the Tour De France while peddling. —->
…so I killed him,I do not plan 2 bow to expectations or to be confined by the fear of losing altitude in the ‘statusphere’! (my word)—->
…I have freed Truman,at long last!I am now free 2 be my whole self,which includes a somewhat contemplative nature,a yen 4 sociology—>
..and a joyfully disarming(with a hacksaw if necessary)sense of humor.I promise 2 reflect all that I’m seeing,hearing,feeling,sensing—>
…and being fed by the media.I was almost out of Tiger untill E.T Supersized me!But I will wear cool shades and get my lips injected! p^m
word missing earlier. ‘Nowone has ever won the Tour De France by ‘back’ peddling. GET IT?! IT IS BETTER WITH THAT! HA HA! Sleeeeep! |^ozzz
Some folks out there are worried that I stay up too late but their fundamental mistake is in assuming that I haven’t moved to Fiji! |^osnore

Jim Carrey then goes on to respond to concerned followers that he’s not having a “nervous breakdown” which is exactly what someone says when they’re having a nervous fucking breakdown. Sort of like how I always say I don’t have a drinking problem right after someone points out I drove naked to work again. It’s called a penis, folks, you all have one. — Oh, right, women.

    Que beard con Jesus?

  2. Deacon Jones

    Sounds like someone’s developed a cocaaaaaine problem….

  3. Gueibor

    He’s going the “Joaquin Phoenix ca. 2009″ route. With some Charlie Manson thrown in foor good measure. Jesus? Yeah, why not.

  4. KIKI

    @ 2. Yes it is.

    I hope that Jim gets back on his meds. I really like him.

  5. dude

    how can this surprise anyone, other than how long it took. seemed painfully obvious even in his living color days that he was probably bipolar and on the brink. but it’s also the source of some insane good humor. i give him a pass, and hope he’s not a gun owner :-)

  6. anon

    Poor thing. Probably his depression acting up again. It was suspected anyway that this type of mood swings were what ended his relationship with Jenny. So sad.

  7. Go Jim! Keep bashing Elin, please! She’s a blonde gold-digging monkey-humping whore!

  8. Dn

    If Jim starts tweeting, “laces out! Laces out!” over and over, it’s time to call out the guys in the white coats with the butterfly nets. And he did do that movie, The Number 23… that could get dicey.

  9. Keith

    I dunno. His tweets makes sense to me. Who doesn’t feel like Truman?

    Go Jim, Go!

  10. I guess it hurts not be funny anymore and to lose a playboy model wife too

  11. LongTimeJimFan

    As far as I know, I’m the only one who mentioned concern given his breakup and past struggles with depression…One post on one website and the press interpreted that as saying that there was mounting fear he was having a nervous breakdown. How fucking pathetic is that? Sorry, Jim.

  12. zuzuspetals

    Looks like an episode of major depression with psychotic features. Yep, it’s sad that crazy people don’t know that they are crazy, just like Tea Partiers, most conservatives, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, and Rush/Hannity/Beck don’t know that they are retarded, idiotic, and insane.
    Funny how the world works.

  13. KIKI

    I have a revised opinion on this. I think self medication is fine for artists. What if everyone was always on medication? Would we all be normal then? I celebrate the “crazy” in Jim.

  14. me

    All the world is a stage. The actors are merely players…. Jim, take a break from life. You’re an amazing person. Don’t lose it. Just take a break from it. There’s kids somewhere that could use a good laugh. Giving love is the best way to beat the demon.

  15. TekMoney

    He’s a comedian, people…

  16. me2

    maybe he’s just trying to fill the John Mayer twitter void….

  17. kpatra

    sadly, it sounds like he is off meds. i hope he can get it back together.

  18. Nancy

    Somewhere in your bullshit is a potential 140 character tweet from him that we’d all read if you’d post but its more fun to read two paragraphs of your inane supposed bullshit SW.

  19. Cartman

    Jim Carrey is an idiot.

  20. It's Me Fuckers

    christ, he has had YEARS of having to behave and look respectable and having to keep his opinions to himself. Jenny is a beautiful woman but I think she curbed Jim’s uniqueness so it ‘wouldn’t look bad’ for her whole autism stance. Now he is like a kid in a candy store with no supervision! GO JIM!! Now he can cause controversy if he feels like it. No Jenny to stop him.

  21. smashboogie

    Stephen King has aged well.

  22. fifteenpiecesofflare

    Re: Elin. It’s as simple as this. Jim Carrey wishes he could hump her. She is totally his type. But he has the maturity of a six year old, so all he can do is pull her hair.

  23. Saxballs

    @2 hit the nail on the head

  24. gesi

    Hey…you’d be babbling too if you lost a PlayBoy Bunny pussy. Poor bastard.

  25. small asian penis

    Dos thus have thou a mug of ale for me and me mate, for he hath been pitched in battle for a fortnight and has the king’s thirst for the frosty brew dos thou might have for thus!

  26. mensa

    I wonder if the breakup w/Jenny is the cause of his weird behavior or if his weird behavior is the cause of his breakup. Hmm how to tell….*turns on Ace Ventura: Pet Detective II” .

  27. You’re the man Jim, but we need you to do another movie!

  28. SATAN

    he must be banging tila tequila and she snuck onto his laptop or something, cuz this is straight crazy talk and not one iota funny

  29. Ally

    He just has an oddball sense of humour and always has. He’s made a career out of his sense of humour so whatever people want to say about it and his ‘sanity’ it’s worked for him.

    A lot of people have no sense of humour and therefore can’t take a joke or realise that comedians try to act in quirky ways to get a laugh out of people. I bet any money he isn’t crazy. I mean no one called him crazy when he walked along a beach wearing Jenny McCarthy’s swimming costume.

    Jim is hilarious but most people are just way to straight to understand he’s just trying to make us laugh.

  30. el ces

    Weird seeing him with facial hair.

  31. MadRabbit

    Damn! Just when you thought it was safe…he busts out that damned Mask again! I mean, can’t you all tell that that’s Loki in Jom’s body now? The beard is a dead giveaway…LOL

    I guess it could be worse…he could be redoing the Majestic…


  32. timmy the dying boy

    I’ll be really surprised if he ever appears in another movie.

  33. He needs to grow up & stop tweeting like a little girl

    jim carrey needs to STFU. His latest movies have tanked, his girlfriend has left him and now he’s becoming a stupid twitter junkie. I hate anybody who arrogantly thinks the world revolves around their every move so they have to tell everyone about it. Stupid arrogant assh*les…

    ATTN, JIM CARREY: Grow a pair & shut your stupid mouth. Also, be a man & stop tweeting like a little girl.

  34. Mary

    Some people highlight anything in another person that might distract us from truth. In this case, the writer makes much of nothing, ignores the obvious, then spotlights personal issues nobody needed to know! This is Jim Carrey, folks. If you honestly did not get the schtick he did you are way too literal or just not smart. Carrey refers to past characters and pop-culture curios in an obvious and Gump-like “close one door, open the next” COMIC ACT. (Get that? ACT?)
    Try A.A., please.

  35. Pat

    # 34,
    Take your own advice and SHUT UP. Clearly your little world is heavily influenced by (maybe even revolves around) Jim Carrey. You certainly got worked up and emotional over silly piece of COMEDY! What is it with you people, no crash on the road to gawk at? The dude is a multi-millionaire because he makes people LAUGH. IT’S a freaking joke!

    I do think that an even better joke is the fact that you MISSED THE POINT and LOST YOUR MINDS when a COMEDIAN acted COMICALLY. HAHAHAHAheeheeheeheeHOHOHOHO…ROFLMAO!

    Mary, you’re brilliant but sadly, AA won’t work because this bunch is brain dead.

  36. I’ve always wondered what the father of Jenny’s kids thinks. I wonder if it is him who has the Asperger’s gene or Jenny. Most kids who are autistic usually, not always have a parent on the Asperger’s spectrum, at least all the ones I’ve known. There’s always been one parent who was out of reality in some social way. Hard to explain.

    With that being said, the REAL problem w/Jim is that he’s uneducated. There’s a link on Celebitchy from 9/09 in which he’s looking for spiritual guidance like Scientology. Another hallmark of the uneducated.

    I remember on E! or MTV channel years ago w/a countdown of some sort. Jenny came right after Anna Nicole Smith (who had true facial beauty) and what a let down that was. Jenny was just a makeup, bleach and boob job. Then she proved to be arrogantly stupid on her ant-vaccine tour. The fact that he chose her w/all of his millions says something about him.

    Holy crap I am cracking up right now.

    People, people, people! Take a chill pill. Take a handful of chill pills and relax. If a person makes an incredible living on being silly then why is it so wierd if that person acts…silly?

    Actors bring characters they are developing, performing, or perparing to debut to many public appearances. Twitter is a stupid thing, but it is no different. Why are you so greedy for a person to suffer that you gleefully cluck that this man is insane just because he does what he does for a living? Is life really that sad in your universe?

    Pat, AA might still work. you do mean Asses Anonymous, right? No? Oops, MY BAD!!

  38. Rebecca

    Wow!! I bet all the 1.5 MILLION Americans living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will be glad to know they all have at least one parent with Asperger’s (or at least “out of reality”).

    Genius! You have found a cause for ASD where thousands of medical experts, researchers, scientists, and scholars have failed! Surely you know the cure too, right? No?

    Your limited and uneducated “expertise” about ASD ruins any chance for credibility you might have had. See, the problem is that there is NO trend among people with Autism indicating the parental correlation you claim exists in “most” cases. You almost recovered by adding the qualifier “at least all the ones I’ve known” but again fail.

    If you have known more than 2 people with autism and they have both had “out of reality” parents, then you really must check the water in your neighborhood and look for power lines. Could be you need to run off the dope dealers. Or put down the crack pipe.

    You insult millions and misinform a handful and you think it’s acceptable? Hmmm… Why don’t you post your address so the 1 in 110 children (1 in 70 boys) with ASD can stop by with their “out of reality” parents and thank you personally for the enlightenment?

    By the way, your facts are WRONG but here is one fact you can believe:
    Jerks–100% of all jerks–have at least one parent hoping for a cure and at least 2 parents who are ashamed of them. Poor jerk.

      Understanding diseases and why some get it and some don`t is very difficult. We are very complex.
      One thing that is sure is that the medical world properly checks out a medicine before its being used on people.
      I am not a medical expert and even if i was the best one in the world, there would still be complicated diseases.
      DNA has a lot to say, some diseases pass on, some skip a generation like with appearances, u can sometimes see that people resemble older people in the family.

      World health organization has written that about this vaccine and tests that have been taken.

      Understanding medical world is difficult, sometimes the cure looks worse then the disease.
      Its that old saying cure the bad with the bad.

      So that might explain why the vaccine looks bad?
      When in fact they are using reliable and tested amounts of drugs.
      For somebody to have a statement like this, they need to have substantial evidence and not just a hunch.
      A hunch is not enough to state something.
      Its ok to have a question about something and look into it, but in this case you have 1 ONE! Doctor against World health organization and many other doctors.
      Are you saying that all those other doctors are wrong?

      One more thing i want to add here is that in history there has been many things that have been proven over time to be bad for people.

      Cocaine was sold and used legally by people until it was proven it was addicting. The same with absinthe.
      I think that testing of meds is stricter now then ever, after earlier mistakes.
      There once was a medication that was bad for pregnant women to take and caused their children to be disfigured.
      (Many years ago in around about the sixties)
      How do you know that Jenny hasn`t taken anything during pregnancy?
      How do u know its not something inherited?
      This vaccine has been given to so many people so why aren`t more people sick?

      Its not up to me to take a decision about this matter, but for me i think this whole vaccine scare sounds like it is based on too weak facts when there could be so many other reasons.

      Do i believe that doctors or scientist can make a mistake? YES!
      Do i believe that this vaccine is one of them? NO!

      Do i trust doctors opinions? Most of the time.

      A drug that has been tested many times, used many times, is more likely to be safe.
      If someone wants to make a rant about it and say that it isn`t then they need clear evidence.
      Surely someone competent in this area must have read about this, so why hasn`t the vaccine been stopped????

      After all the other things that has been stopped over the course of time, after been proven they were bad. Surely this must mean that the vaccine hasn`t been proven bad!

    @39 You have a valid point but it was lost somewhere in all that vitriol. Learn to make your point better or nobody will take you seriously.

  40. No buddy knows that why jim carrey done this with his wife . Its looked so weird and and he happy to done this .

  41. maria

    mental illness is NOT funny!

    The man is making sense and transcending all of the pathetic bullshit the film industry and its shallow following thrives on. This blog my be ironically titled The Superficial but I suppose that doesn’t make it self-aware.

    Me? I come on here every once and a while to check up on the dregs of American Pop every once and a while. No shame about it. I don’t read anything except the headline. This one however got me to looking at a bit more than I usually would. I read Carrey’s tweets and I’m glad I do.

    How could you not understand where this guy is coming from? Did you read what he tweeted on Easter? How is his intelligence not apparent? He’s being cohesive, he is making sense.

    If you can’t wrap your head around it I’m going to make the grandiose assumption that you’ve got a lot to learn. Please look within and without and you might find some answer. Look for broader contexts… perhaps realize the relativity of the word ‘definition’.

    For the stagnantly unwilling: go back to your mediocre and truly superficial lives. Keep paying your taxes and recycle your trash. You remind me of Tea Party protestors.

    (tl;dr, gfy.)

  45. sine_eyes

    …and I sometimes repeat phrases in the same sentence. Nice. That definitely helped to convince the shallow masses I’m sure.

  46. jon

    It is also what people who aren’t having nervous breakdowns say.

    maybe jenny infected him with the ‘stupid’ virus…
