Jim Carrey Has Clearly Learnt Nothing From #MeToo

This time he’s told a female journo he’d 'do' her.

It’s always sad when someone you really liked goes off the deep end, and Jim Carrey is a classic example of that for me. A childhood favourite who turned into an anti-vaxxer, and then got really weird around women in interviews all of a sudden. This time Jim Carrey has told a woman interviewing him that she was the last thing he had left to ‘do’.

In a press junket for Sonic The Hedgehog, reporter Charlotte Long asked Carrey: “I know your film Sonic has a bucket list, and I was wondering after all you’ve done in your career and your life, is there anything still left on your bucket list?”

You can probably see where this is going.

“Just you. That’s it. It’s all done now.”

When Long replied with “I don’t know what to say to that,” Carrey told her to “just own it.” 

No idea, buddy.

This comes just over a week after Jim Carrey was dragged for saying that Margot Robbie was only successful because of her looks. Sitting next to her on The Graham Norton Show’s couch, he said “It’s incredible that you’ve got as far as you have with your obvious physical disadvantages. It’s unbelievable, it’s really something. That’s pure talent right there!”

As with most men in Hollywood, Jim Carrey had made some pretty serious missteps before the #MeToo movement took off. Mainly the messy relationship he had with his ex-girlfriend Cathriona White before she took her own life, and the video he made confessing his love to Emma Stone in 2011.

But since the #MeToo movement took off in late 2017, any excuse that could have been made for telling women that you’d ‘do’ them in an interview has gone out the window. It’s well and truly established by now that this isn’t ok and we won’t put up with it anymore.

If he keeps insisting on harassing women in their workplaces, then his actions will catch up to him one day. And if he doesn’t know what to say to that, then maybe he should ‘just own it’.

Notorious Badass Princess Anne Is Set To Make History Taking Prince Harry’s Job

A true queen.

The last few months have been one hell of a ride for the Royals. Just when we thought it couldn’t get more dramatic than the Prince Andrew shitshow, Harry and Meghan threw the towel in and told everyone making their lives difficult to get stuffed. The fallout of both of these incidents has been ongoing, but we have a silver lining: everybody’s favourite Royal, Princess Anne, is going to make history by taking over one of Prince Harry’s positions. 

According to The Sunday Times, Queen Liz will soon make the announcement that Princess Anne will take over as Captain-General of the Royal Marines. She’ll be the first woman to ever hold the title.

Harry has only been Captain-General of the Royal Marines himself for a bit over two years, taking the role in December 2017 after Prince Philip retired from royal duties. Before that, Philip held the title for 64 years.

Remember Princess Anne getting in on a Trump gossip circle? Let the GOAT Team take you back…

Harry still has a couple of months left before he officially bows out and heads off with Meghan to live their best lives. There will reportedly be one final “farewell engagement” with the Royal Marines for Harry, and then Princess Anne will step into the role.

Princess Anne already has a long list of military titles to her name – she’s associated with 65 other military organisations – and is a notorious hard worker, so the extra workload is in safe hands. In 2019 she attended 506 engagements, coming second only to her brother Prince Charles, who attended 521.

Nice

It’s going to be quite a while before all the loose ends are tied up once #Megxit goes ahead, but I’m all here for this particular resolution. Although personally I’m on team ‘just give Anne the crown already’ so perhaps I’m biased. 

Either way, here’s to Princess Anne and her constant butt-kicking of life.
