Jim Carrey Thought He Was Going to Die During the Fake Missile Alert in Hawaii

Jim Carrey is opening up about the terrifying experience he went through when a fake missile alert went out to people in Hawaii back in 2018.

The 58-year-old actor was talking about his new memoir on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon when he recounted what happened.

Jim said he was spending time in Hawaii and his assistant called him in tears to say they had just 10 minutes to live.

“It was completely real to us,” Jim said. He said he tried to get off the island with his daughter, but he couldn’t. He said his goodbyes and went to the beach to spend his final moments looking at the ocean.

“At that point I started going, ‘OK what can I do with this last moment of time’. I just decided to go through a list of gratitudes and honest to God I just could not stop thinking of wonderful things that have happened to me and blessings I’ve had,” Jim said. “It was lovely. And I got to a point of grace at about two minutes to spare when I found out it wasn’t actually happening. All I was planning to do was closing my eyes and be thankful because it’s been a good ride.”

When he found out the missile alert was fake, he joked, “I got pissed off and heads rolled.”

In another interview this week, Jim revealed which actress was the “great love” of his life.
