Jim Carrey admires Kanye West

Hollywood star Jim Carrey says rapper Kanye West is one of the great characters of our zeitgeist. Carrey opened up about his admiration for West in an episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, reports a website. During the conversation, the 58-year-old star spoke about his semi-autobiographical new book, Memoirs And Misinformation, which is about a character named Jim Carrey and includes other characters like Nicolas Cage, Charlie Kaufman and Gwyneth Paltrow. One of the characters is West, who speaks to Carrey’s character about an alien invasion. “At the end, Kanye West says, ‘You need not be afraid. They speak to me in supernatural voices. I am one with their jam’. And I am not sure he didn’t say that this week,” Maher told Carrey. The comedian laughed and said: “It’s a very strange thing where parody becomes very parallel with reality. But we’ve got to make these things, you know. (Kanye West) is one of the great characters of our zeitgeist at this moment and I wanted him to have a place in it.” “No matter what he’s doing. I can’t figure it out,” Carrey added. (IANS)
