Jim Carrey outraged some feminists this week by telling a female interviewer that she was the only thing left on his “bucket list.”
The Hollywood actor and frequent critic of President Donald Trump spoke with Heat magazine reporter Charlotte Long on Tuesday ahead of the release of his new film, “Sonic the Hedgehog.”
“I was wondering, after all you’ve done in your career and in your life, is there anything still left on your bucket list?” Long asked Carrey.
“Just you. That’s it. It’s all done now,” Carrey said.
Long, laughing, replied: “Wow, I don’t know what to say to that!”
“Just own it,” a smiling Carrey advised.
Carrey’s remarks were characterized as “sexist” by some media outlets and users on social media.
Much of the criticism Carrey faced came from fellow liberals.
@JimCarrey your comment to the reporter was beyond rude and sexist. Own that

“Such a huge of @JimCarrey but lost respect for him today. This is really unacceptable,” tweeted one commenter who identifies as feminist.
Several Twitter users called him a “sleazeball.”
Carrey, 58, gained attention as a prominent Trump critic after he began uploading photos of his anti-Trump paintings to Twitter.
Liberals effusively praised Carrey’s artwork, which took shots at the president and various figures in his orbit, such as Rudy Giuliani.
Last month, the “Dumb and Dumber” star announced he was done making political paintings.
