Surely, Carrey isn't being held hostage by a 14-year-old vlogger, too embarrassed to gush over Stone himself?
A sample of Carrey's confession to Stone:
"If I were a lot younger, I would marry you, and we would have chubby little freckle-faced kids," Carrey says, in extreme close-up. The actor's rep insists to Entertainment Weekly that the video - posted on Carrey's site, JimCarreyTruLife - "was intended to be comical."
Obviously, Emma Stone is one of the more crushable actresses working in Hollywood today. (It worked, Jim!)
Or maybe—just maybe—Jim Carrey has the blistering hots for Emma Stone. We like to throw around words like ‘creepy’ to make it seem like Carrey is somehow coming apart, but if you watch the video, the man is clearly having fun with it, albeit more subtly than, say, this Jim Carrey. If the video came with a Funny or Die imprint attached, we’d all laugh, and welcome Jim Carrey to the age of viral videos. Jim Carrey, the rubber-faced comedian, is trending on Twitter, and unfortunately, it’s not because of a hit movie, new TV show, or even a brilliant joke. It’s because of his video love letter to flame-haired actress Emma Stone, star of The Help and Easy A.
The video was posted on Carrey’s Tru Life video website, which is currently so overloaded, I can’t even get on it. But don’t worry, you can see Carrey’s trembling homage below.
Stone herself can’t seem to decide. After reading about the digital mash note, I was prepared to be outraged at the craggy, middle-aged Carrey wooing a woman just out of her teens, but Carrey is clearly not remotely serious. “Is Jim Carrey’s Bizarre Video to Emma Stone Sincere or a Prank?” asks BlackBook.
Writes Ben Barna: “If the video came with a Funny or Die imprint attached, we’d all laugh, and welcome Jim Carrey to the age of viral videos.” “I’m 49,” says Carrey, a catch in his throat. I would have been more impressed if Carrey had played it straight.
