Jim Carrey declares love for Emma Stone [Video] [Poll] [Updated]
If Jim Carrey ran Abercrombie & Fitch, the A&F proposition to the Situation last week might have looked a little more like the video below -- it's Carrey's love letter to actress Emma Stone, and while Carrey doesn't ask Stone to take off any clothing or offer any money like A&F, it's bound to draw as many or more eyeballs as the retailer's publicity-stunt letter did last week.
The 49-year-old Carrey, who broke up with longtime girlfriend Jenny McCarthy in April 2010, pours his heart out to Stone, saying:
If I were a lot younger I would marry you and we would have chubby little freckle-faced kids. We'd laugh all day long and go camping and play Yahtzee and tell ghost stories by the fire. And every day for the rest of your life you would thank God that I was the appropriate age for you.
The video was posted to Carrey's personal site, jimcarreytrulife.com, which was crashed Thursday morning under the weight of the attention drawn to the video. His official site was crashed as well.
"I just wanted to let you know how I felt," Carrey said in the video to Stone. "I think you're pretty special. I wish you continued success and artistic fulfillment but most of all I wish you love and contentment. That's all."
[Updated, 2:30 p.m. Aug. 25: "Yes, my msg to Emma Stone was a comedy routine and the funniest part is that everything i said is tru," Carrey said on Twitter (for those who were wondering). He later mentioned that the site -- which has other videos from the actor's everyday life including visits to Brazil and Haiti, allows for comments on the videos, and is intended as "a more immediate way" for him to connect with fans -- had "crashed temporarily. Back up soon. ?;^\"]
Emma Stone turns 23 in November. No word on whether Carrey, who is a grandpa, will be releasing disappointing quarterly earnings later on Thursday. Check out the video for yourself, below, and then vote in the poll even further below.
