An article came across my email inbox this morning that really struck a cord with me. A man who needs no introduction, Mr. Jim Carrey recently completed an interview with MTV. The topic at hand, teen bullying.
Carrey plays a closeted gay man in upcoming ‘I Love You Phillip Morris,’ due to hit theaters on December 3 and says ‘to feel like an outcast is a terrible thing.’

Jim Carrey Calls Anyone Who Bullies ‘No Friend Of Mine’
“This is a horrible thing to be bullied, and to feel like an outcast is a terrible thing,” Carrey told us. “It’s just so an old thing, an old antiquated way of thinking that you can’t have anymore. It doesn’t belong in the new paradigm.
Carrey confessed he often felt like an outsider while growing up, but found “little tricks” to make himself popular. Now an A-list actor working in Hollywood, he’s found himself collaborating with movie industry insiders, some of whom are gays and lesbians – a situation that many bullying teens will also experience in the future. For that reason, at the very least, Carrey said teens would be wise to treat everyone with respect, regardless of any perceived differences.
