Actor Jim Carrey has been making the rounds speaking to various media outlets trying to drum up business for his new movie Sonic the Hedgehog.

Carrey, 58, plays the villain Dr. Robotnik in the film, but his comments to Charlotte Long of Heat magazine that are being called sexist by many have cast him as the villain in real life.

At one point during the four-minute long video, Long says to Carrey, “In the film, Sonic has a bucket list. I was wondering, after all you’ve done in your career and in your life, is there anything still left on your bucket list?”

Carrey replied back, “Just you. That’s it. It’s all done now.”

Long then busts out laughing at the joke, and replies, “Wow. I don’t know what to say to that.”

To which Carrey replies deadpan, “Just own it.”

Those remarks by Carrey to Long (who has since made her Twitter account private after posting the interview) quickly sent many people into a frenzy, commenting on how offensive and outraged they were.

“Look up ‘sleazeball’ in the dictionary and there’s a photo of @JimCarrey,” wrote one Twitter user.

Another wrote, “It’s not a cute moment. As a former reporter, I would be very embarrassed and offended if someone said this to me in an interview.”

And on it went.


Not everyone took offense, however, as several people took offense at people being offended by Carrey’s remarks.

As usual, the internet is divided on how it feels about something.
