Jim Carrey On Air With Ryan Seacrest23 Jul 2020
By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
Yesterday Jim Carrey had a zoom conversation with host Ryan Seacrest for his radio show. They talked about Jim's book "Memoirs and Misinformation" and how Jim is now a best selling author.
About what the book is, Jim doesn't hesitate:
"It's apocrypha. It's basically the same thing that was done with King Arthur and recently - you know, we've got nothing but time here - I'm reading the classics and I'm reading Bram Stoker's Dracula, the Old English version, and I'm realizing, 'Oh my God, this is another example of what we did with the book.' We took a real history and we embellished. We just made a myth out of me. The point is the entire book is geared towards freeing you from yourself so in doing that with myself, I'm hopefully through osmosis freeing you from yourself. Freeing you from grasping of things and trying to create a character you can drag through life that would be a winner."
For those who may not read the book yet, there's a lot of celebrities that show up in the novel and Ryan was curious to know how they reacted:
"It's funny; I'm in the process right now. I'm waiting on several people who have told me they're sending me letters. Tom Hanks is sending me a letter; Anthony Hopkins is ending me an email of some sort so I don't know how they're going to react.
It's all done with love. There really honestly is no one in this book that I don't respect as an artist... It was really fun playing with the characters and basically having this band of concerned celebrities fighting for the good of the planet in earth's darkest hour."
