Jim Carrey Says Yes Man!

Yes Man, Jim Carrey is back in action. It’s been three years since Jim Carrey’s humor lit up the screen and made us laugh out loud until we shed tears.

In the flick, Jim challenges himself to say "yes" to everything for an entire year.
He learned quickly that one word can change everything.

Hollyscoop caught up with the hilarious actor at the ‘Yes Man’ press junket in Los Angeles to get the low-down on his very eccentric character.

Hollyscoop: So is Jim a Yes man or a No man?
Jim Carrey: “I would say Yes even when I say No. You know sometimes saying no is saying yes to your own self word. You know what I’m saying? No, I like to enjoy life. I like to engage in life. So, I’ll say I’m a yes man. I said yes to so many things from a sex change to a gastric bypass surgery. So, it always paid off for me. I kept the weight off.”

HS: So why should we watch this movie?
Carrey: “Mostly just to have a good laugh, and to feel good in your heart. I think not only is it a funny movie, but I think you’ll really believe the love story and the friendships and so I think there is a lot to walk away with. But I guess the only thing is that if there is, then to just engage in life. Say yes more than you do know. Maybe a little bit more than you did before. And you know kinda life turns out alright. Usually you regret the things you say no too.”

HS: Why should people pay $10 to see this movie?
Carrey: “You know when people are not doing as well as they like to be doing, having a laugh is the perfect escape.”

HS: What’s the stupidest thing you’ve said Yes to?
Carrey: So many. I never said I regret doing this project.

HS: In this film one of your characters Carl and Renee are into doing spontaneous romantic things. What’s the most spontaneous and romantic thing you’ve ever loved?
Carrey: When I proposed to my wife I had no, I almost had no intention of doing it. And it really popped out of my mouth on a Tuesday at about 4 o’clock. I think your supposed to go somewhere and do something, but it just came out completely accidentally. It was a truly spontaneous moment and I suppose it was romantic when she did say yes and laughed at me, but she did say “Yes” so I think that’s a pretty safe answer to that question. It was not planned at all and it was Tuesday and I swear I was sitting in a chair and I turned, we had a particularly good day and I asked her to marry me.
