Jim Carrey Responds to Ariana Grande After She Posts His Quote About Depression

Jim Carrey took a moment to respond to Ariana Grande after she posted about him over the weekend.

If you don’t know, Ariana took to her Instagram Story to share a quote that Jim once said about depression: “Depression is your body saying, ‘I don’t want to be this character anymore. I don’t want to hold up this avatar that you’ve created in the world. It’s too much for me.’ You should think of the word ‘depressed’ as ‘deep rest.’ Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you’ve been trying to play.”

On Monday (April 22), Jim tweeted to Ariana, “.@ArianaGrande I read your lovely mention of me and things I’ve said about depression. A brilliant teacher and friend, Jeff Foster was OG on the ‘Deep Rest’ concept. I admire your openness. I wish you freedom and peace. I feel blessed to have such a gifted admirer. Happy Easter!”

Ariana responded, “i can’t process this or breathe hold on…thank u so much for your kindness. 🖤 i don’t think u understand how much i adore u or what u mean to me. thank u for taking the time to share this w me. you are such an inspiration. i can’t wait to tattoo this tweet to my forehead. sending you lots of love & all things happy”
