Jim Carrey Slammed Over 'Creepy' Joke To Margot Robbie (Photo Credit: Twitter)
New Delhi :
Funny man, Jim Carrey has found himself in some situation over his comment to Margot Robbie on the sets of Graham Norton show. The 58-year-old on Friday shared the famous red-coach with Margot Robbie, when, in an attempt to compliment the Aussie star, Carrey said, "You're really something, Margot Robbie. It's incredible you got as far as you have with your obvious physical disadvantages. That's pure talent there. That's a talent override there’’.
Margot appeared to take the joke in good humour laughing away, some viewers, however, did not see the joke in the same light going on to brand the Mask star 'rude', 'awkward', and 'creepy.'
"Did Jim Carrey just tell Margot Robbie she's got where she is because of her looks? Can't stand the man tbh’’ a user commented.
Another wrote: "Did anyone else think Jim Carrey comment about Margot Robbie on The Graham Norton Show was not okay. She's an amazing actress and now a successful producer, had it been a male actor in her seat I doubt Jim Carrey would have commented on their 'obvious physical disadvantages'."
'That joke Jim Carrey make towards Margot Robbie about her looks and talent was so awkward’ another shared.
I see I'm not the only one bothered by Jim Carrey's comments on the @TheGNShow. Margot Robbie creates her own opportunities through a production company she set up and this guy implies she's only successful because of her beauty. #notfunny #cringeworthy— Greta (@enquireGC) February 1, 2020
Weird night on #GrahamNortonShow Jim Carrey suggesting Margot Robbie only got where she is because of her looks, Lewis Capaldi high as a kite and Jodie Turner-Smith’s first modelling story which sounded like a chapter from Harvey Weinstein’s playbook. #TheGNShow— Matt Brown (@TheTweetinMatt) February 1, 2020
Margot Robbie looks proper annoyed with Jim Carrey. He’s a massive creep though so can’t blame her. If your daughter brought him home you’d leave him in the yard. Fact— Rich Jowitt (@RichJow) January 31, 2020
Robbie, meanwhile was praised for her 'classy' reaction, with one person posting, "Shameful moment. I cringed but Margot handled the idiot with grace and poise!"
"How Margot Robbie kept her composure when Jim Carrey almost flat out said she'd only got where she was on looks alone I'll never know."
'Well I for one think @MargotRobbie was very gracious in the face of huge condescension and blatant rudeness from Jim Carey’ another added.
