Jim Carrey – Be Yourself


I was on Prozac for a long time. I’m not sure, it may have helped me out of a jam for a little bit, but people stay on it forever. I had to get off at a certain point because I realized that, ‘You know, everything’s just okay.’ “

“No peaks and valleys.”

“There are peaks, there are valleys, but they’re all kind of carved and smoothed out. It feels like a low level of despair you live in. Where you’re not getting any answers, but you’re living okay, and you can smile at the office. But it’s a low level of despair.”

“It’s all very close to the surface.”

“Yeah. It is. I’ve decided to be there. I only act in the movies. I just want to be myself. I want to be the greatest actor that every lived, frankly. You know? I’d love that. But I don’t need to be. I just really want to be here, that’s it. Life is too beautiful.”
