How I EmbarrASSed Myself When I Met Jim Carrey

Last week I had the incredible opportunity to attend the press junket for the new Jim Carrey movie, Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Meeting Jim Carrey was beyond memorable, not only because he is a charismatic superstar, but also because I made an ass of myself. Watch this video for the full story.

Thankfully, in between my blunders, I was actually able to get in a few articulate questions. CLICK HERE to read more about my interview with Jim Carrey and CLICK HERE to read my “Sappy Mom” review of the film.


Mr. Popper’s Penguins opens in theaters on June 17th, 2011.

    After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any way you can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    if anyone can pull it off and make a How To video about it its YOU – forever adorable so where is YOUR agent BTW.

  6. I love you quirky vids! I think you are brave for doing what you did, even if you did feel a bit embarrassed. I’m sure he had a few moments like this in his day! Great job and thanks for not being too embarrassed to share with the rest of us.

    I adore you.

    have I said that before? Anyway, a few month’s ago I had a similar opp. interviewing Mr Funny- as- S*@T Russell Brand for his epic role as the Easter Bunny in Hop.

    I decided to ask him to compare Aldus Snow to his role as EB. Pregnant pause here.

    He made something up about them both being addicts or something, all the while I’m sure trying to figure out what exactly I had smoked before he walked into the room.

    LOVED your tips. If I ever get the chance to do it again, I’m taking your advice with me.

    Enjoy the weekend Super Mary!

    Orrr…not. But you know it made for an entertaining video so at least there’s that.

    OMG! I did NOT realize that you said “We’re her to a**”… That is hilarious! I’m still waiting for you to do your butt cheek move in front of him 🙂
