JIM Carrey hates homophobia.
The Hollywood actor — who played a man who comes out of the closet and finds his soul mate while serving a prison sentence in the recent film I Love You Philip Morris — thinks it’s disgraceful that people are bullied because of their sexuality.
“This is a horrible thing to be bullied, and to feel like an outcast is a terrible thing,” he said. “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.
“Every time you look at somebody and think, ‘I don’t like that about that person,’ you just got to know that’s about you.
“Anybody who bullies anybody for any reason is no friend of mine. Frankly, I can’t imagine hitting a human being for any reason except self-preservation, if I was attacked. Your sensibilities are different when you’re a school kid and there’s gang mentality, but it ain’t cool.
“Some of the most valuable people in my life are gay.
“People that bring magical, amazing gifts and contributions to my life. I would say to kids out there when they’re engaging in these kinds of isolations of people, someday you’re going to want those people in your life. You’re going to need those people in your life, and you’re not going to want that on your conscience.”
Carrey recently recalled his favorite Christmas memory.
“My favorite Christmas memory is from my childhood,” he said.
“My big thing was that I couldn’t wait to lay under the tree and squint my eyes up at the lights.
“I also liked to listen to Johnny Mathis and all those other Christmas songs that just never got old as far as I was concerned.”[imagebrowser id=92]
