Jim Carrey issues a statement on his recent tweets

Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey may have let loose some interesting tweets in the past week - first announcing his split from Jenny McCarthy, and then commenting on Tiger Woods's marital issues - but in a statement regarding the recent press coverage of his Twitter feed, Carrey said he didn't mean any harm.

β€œTo anyone whose grievances have chosen me as their cause, I would say first, that I recognize that tendency in myself, but if you knew me well, you'd see that your resentment has been misplaced," the actor said.

"I wish every human being nothing but love and immeasurable happiness," his statement continued. "Now, I'm going to re-enter the Twitter stream and see if there is anyone left to offend!"

Earlier this week, his flurry of tweets caused some to express concern, but Carrey has assured everyone that he's not having a breakdown, but rather a breakthrough.

    Thank you for every other excellent post. The place else may anyone get that kind of information in such an ideal method of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I'm at the look for such information.

    Don't some of you have someone more deserving of your hatred?
    Jim Carey?
    Are you kidding?

    I'd be saying much worse things than that about women after some breakups I've had.

    Look into his life before you slam the guy, it's not deserved.

    Looks to me like some low life lawyer wants to make this an issue to get a new pool in his yard.

    I loved Dumb and Dumber. I wish Jim would stick to what he knows, which is making a total fool of himself and getting paid for it.

    From a woman's perspective that was cheated on... I tend to agree with Jim Carrey.. Elin had her "I love my Husband and he would never cheat on me" blinders on. Been there... It just stinks that the world found out with her. Jim Carrey just said what many people were thinking and not saying out loud.

    We need to thank Mr. Carey for his expert insight into matters of this nature because of his own success in his relationships. Where would we be without the moral guidance and collective wisdom of folks like Jim, Joy Behar, Sean Penn.
    Here's a funny idea Jimmy. Put 2 or 3 softballs in that big mouth, keep them there of a couple of month and then swallow!

    Come on guys its Jim Carey hes an awesome comedian and a great person. I'm sure his tweets were only what he was feeling and it seems like thats the whole point of twitter is to share what you are doing and how your feeling. The press should be greatful for twitter that way they can really get inside the celebs brains... I say leave the man alone he is already gone through a break up let him get back to normal.

    Who cares as long as it doesn't affect my family then I CANNOT judge. However, if i'm not pleasing my husband in ALL means then I havea problem. There is a reason why every person strays in a relationship/marriage. Communication is the KEY to every relationship

    well, I personally think tiger woods is a dweeb and this is just another in the series of unfortunate events that is becoming his legacy – BUT I think Jim Carey is a Brilliant Man, maybe twisted a bit about the girl/boy relationship – tigers wife certainly doesn't deserve to be poked at because tigers poking every chick in his vicinity but Jim – if you read this – really, you are brilliant – this comment from you is beautifully woven and made me laugh – and Jenny needs to put on her big girl pants and beg you to smooch her lips before some other fortunate soul gets the privilege

    I agree with Denizen Kate. Let's accept Jim's apology at face value and call it a day. He is one of the funniest actors in Hollywood and made some hillarious and enjoyable movies. Not to mention his tv work especially on, In Living Color. Jim is awesome, keep up the good work!

    Unfortunately, when you have any kind of celebrity, even if your career is pretty much washed up, the general public will hang on your words as though they are gospel. Carrey's comments were stupid, unnecessary, and hurtful, but "celebrities" who tweet already know that but think it still OK to run at the mouth. He's a loser.

    wow, some express concern about his tweets. oh no, maybe they should come out with a new law. if anyone is offended by a tweet, they can sue. i would not be suprised if this actually happened, everyone is so touchy nowadays and ready to jump on someone for what they type. wow again

    although he shouldn't have put his two cents in...what he said wasn't offensive. He spoke what we all already thought. There is no way that she didn't have an idea what was going on...

    Who would ever take seriously anything Jim had to say about anyone's relationships – look at his record in that department. He just needs to mind his own business. Totally outta line to comment on Elin. What is he – a mind reader? Lots of folks, male & female, get blind-sided by a cheating spouse. And by spouses with a lot less resources to manage a cover-up... some of you posters better be on the lookout for some serious karma with your unsubstantiated remarks in that department...

    The whole show Elin put on will soon come to an end when the world finds out she was getting some on the side as well... Tiger was just stupid and got caught!!!! She is the smart one, he was gone for a long time, she was getting money without working and getting some while he was out playing. C`mon people....

    OK Jim Carey – go away now. You were out of the limelight pretty much for a while so please go away again. You really do not make much sense. But, guess now that you are once again on your own with nothing to do you will make unnecessary comments about others. Bye now Jim!! πŸ™‚

    I like how everyone one in the world has talked and shared opinions about the Tiger Woods scandal. But if Jim Carrey shares his opinions he's wrong? In that case everyone on this post who said Tiger Woods is wrong should also mind their own business. It's a free country, he can say whatever he wants on his personal page, it's not like he was making anti-semitic or racial remarks like some idiot actors out there. He had an opinion, and it wasn't even that bad!

    I think Jim Carrey is a great funny guy and theres nothing wrong with him tweeting any more than any other person out there tweeting. What i dont get is why does Elin even bother to concern herself with his opinion ? Doesnt she have more important things to deal with – like her philandering husband ? Sheesh ! Get a grip ...

    Honestly, he just broke up with his girlfriend, cut him some slack. Can you imagine the responses we would all get after going through something like that? The only difference between him and us is that he is famous.

    I often make comments on my FB page that leave my family and friends wondering. After so long, they realize it's just my way to blow off steam, write some new jokes to test responses, etc. But when people first 'friend' me, I can get some hilarious phone calls like "Are you ok?" or "I know this really good counselor." He's just that personality type...no worries. Just more people reading his tweets and more to be concerned about it.

    He is an Idiot- I really feel for Elin that has to listen to this morons speak of her life as if it were a matter of fact. The one to blame is Tiger he is a pervert and the one who stood to lose everything. Unfortunately for him he gambled and lost. Sadly, Jim Carey's tiny brain fails to understand that- Elin was living a happy life, married, children and a successful husband. Then, boom- his comment places the obvious women will always be judged, men compensated.
    Lets face it, everyone was disgusted by Tiger however, his a man. what would Jim Carey have to say if the roles were reversed.
    I think Jim Carey should Tweet less and mind his life more.

    I think when these women marry these men (professional athletes, moviestars, etc) they KNOW to a certain degree that there is a strong chance of infidelity. I think after awhile it becomes to much to bare especially if they truly love the guy. SO I TOTALLY AGREE WITH JIM CAREY, it is no way she didn't notice something was not right. She took all she could before she just exploded! Leave Jim alone those were my thoughts as well.

    I think Jim Carrey is a bit of a troubled soul who ultimately means no harm to anyone. I think he needs to make us laugh, but sometimes he gets a little too "buried in the part" and it rankles some folks. Let's accept his apology at face value and leave it at that.

    Jim Carry's tweets are spelled with numbers. This tweet looks to be by a more elegant hand. $100.00 says his publicist wrote it, and told Carry that all further 'tweets' must be approved before submission.

    Besides, he's only saying out loud what most of us musta have already thought about (does anyone really believe that Tiger's wife didn't even have a clue?).
