So, Jim Carrey was joking in that seemingly creepy video he made declaring his love for Emma Stone. Except that, he also was completely serious.
The star took to Twitter on Thursday to address what he said to Stone, in which he said, "I just wanted to let you know that I think you're all the way beautiful. Not just pretty, but, you know, smart and kindhearted. And if I were a lot younger, I would marry you, and we would have chubby little freckled faced kids."
"Yes, my msg to Emma Stone was a comedy routine and the funniest part is that everything i said is tru," he tweeted, before continuing, "People often ask me if i'm being funny or serious. The answer is "YES". ?;^]"
Well, that clears it up.
Carrey, of course, has always been willing to experiment with humor; he idolized and later played avant garde comedian Andy Kaufman in "Man on the Moon," for example.
In any case, even if it doesn't win Emma's heart, the video served its marketing purpose; it garnered so many clicks for his site, JimCarreyTruLife.com, it crashed the server.
