Jim Carrey slammed for saying female reporter was only thing left to do on his ‘bucket list’

Jim Carrey was slammed on Twitter for telling a woman journalist in an interview that she was the only thing left for him to do on his “bucket list.”

Journalist Charlotte Long of Heat Magazine asked Carrey about his career :

Long - “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 - “Just you. That’s it, it’s all done now.”

Long - “Wow. I don’t know what to say to that!”

Carrey - “Just own it,”

Twitter users took Carrey’s comments in a predatory light.
Others defended Carrey’s “flirty” remarks.
Others admitted they just saw it as a joke.

If this was misconstrued, he could've cleared it up rather than making the situation uncomfortable.
He was an idiot on Graham Norton too. He basically said Margot Robbie is where she is only for her looks, but then praised Daniel Kaluuya’s acting.
Men so often do that and it’s infuriating. The number of times they’ll invoke a woman’s looks but of course never their male costars. I’ve heard a director call their lead a “beautiful, sexy girl”. She was 27. Always only about talent and being funny when it’s a guy. But a woman’s looks can always be commented on, too. I remember I complained about it once and people defended the male actor, saying he’d ‘also’ mentioned her talent 🙄
woof, what a dated remark. that absolutely would've been considered "smooth" in like the 90s, liek that baffleck whatever
...he meant that QUESTION. have y'all seen Jim Carrey in the past few years? he responds this way to everything
wow. now that's inappropriate.
This is one of those situation where i take my cues from the person it happened to.

I like dirty/skeevy jokes so in her shoes id have had a good laugh but i also would completely be on her side if she was uncomfortable. So really, her call on the level of grossness
I agree.
I totally agree.
i.. ew
Reading the situation a bit more carefully, I don't think he meant to be creepy. It's just poor wording in an attempt to flatter the interviewer and make her think that the interview went so well, it's the last thing he was happy to do.

I don't mind the dragging tho. Some men would still think he was being ~~smooth~~ and replicate this with less innocent intentions. If he addresses this, Jim Carrey will still come out unscathed anyway, hopefully with a better command of his words.
Ewww, I hope that was some little gag they worked out before hand. Otherwise creepy and sucks as a pick up line.

Creepiest thing I remember about Jim Carrey was when he went on a date with Anchal from America's Next Top Model.
Gross. Men need to stop hitting on people who are not even slightly interested in them.
He makes me uncomfortable in general.

he has really intense, desperate energy
I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF MEN omg. i'm tired of all men but especially predatory older men who act creepy towards women while they are AT THEIR WORKPLACE and cannot respond negatively and are basically trapped.

when i was in high school i worked at a retirement community serving dinner. most of the wait staff was in high school because they could get away with paying and treating us like shit. whenever we would serve chicken we'd have to ask the residents "breast or thigh?" and naturally the old men would say THE MOST DISGUSTING SHIT. i was 15 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME.

I agree that it's most probably a lame joke about the interview itself but he clearly has an issue with women. And in general I think he's a pretty messed up person that has burned a lot of bridges and is really bitter.
