However in a red carpet interview, the 55-year-old actor said: ‘There’s no meaning to any of this. So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am.’

When E! host Catt Sadler pointed out the at the party celebrates icons Jim bluntly replied with the phrase: ‘I don’t believe in icons.’

He continued with a paraphrased version of the commencement speech he gave at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa in 2014: ‘I don’t believe in personalities. I believe that peace lies beyond personalities, beyond invention and disguise, beyond the red S you wear on your chest, that makes bullets bounce off.’

The Bruce Almighty actor, who was dressed in a black shirt and a rather jazzy blue printed blazer for the event also claimed that he had not dressed up.

Yeah right, Jim!

He claimed: ‘I didn’t get dressed up.There is no me. There’s just things happening.’

We aren’t really sure what he is referring to but he ended that statement with ‘we don’t matter.’

In spite of his unusual interview, we couldn’t help but notice that he was without the magnificent bushy beard he has become famous for wearing. 

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would’ve known that Jim’s beard has been becoming more famous than him but he now looks like he did in his 90s/noughties heyday without the beard, and smiled for the waiting paps on the red carpet.

While beard lovers may be mourning the loss of such an impressive example of facial hair, we’ve gotta say, Jim is looking brilliant right now.

The Mask actor is currently promoting the amazingly titled Jim Andy: The Great Beyond – The Story of Jim Carrey Andy Kaufman Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton.

The documentary features footage from when Jim went full method actor to play Andy Kaufman in Man On The Moon.

While Jim has been promoting several projects over the past few months, including TV show I’m Dying Up Here, he has also made headlines for different reasons as he is set to stand trial next April in a case regarding the death of his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White.

Cathriona took her own life in 2015, with the Tipperary native’s mother Brigid Sweetman and her estranged husband Mark Burton filing wrongful death lawsuits against Jim.

Mrs Sweetman alleges that Jim gave her daughter three sexually transmitted diseases and supplied the drugs she used to overdose.

Carrey denies all the claims.

The trial is expected to begin on April 26, 2018.
