Carrey credits his tenacity partially to his Canadian heritage and says he sees the same trait in many Australians.
â€˜â€˜All the Australians I know are really cool people,'' the lanky 46-year-old says. â€˜â€˜They remind me a lot of Canadians -- they have the same kind of vibe, the fun-loving, cool vibe. â€˜â€˜Certainly a lot of amazing talent is coming out of there -- Jesus, it's incredible. I think it comes from a desire to do something extraordinary. I think you try harder when you come from a place like that, you try harder to be good.''
â€˜â€˜I read him (Evan) The Grinch every night for a long time because he's autistic and kids who have autism, when they get something in their head, it's all they want,'' he says. â€˜â€˜So literally every night I would read The Grinch to him, and he didn't know the actual Grinch was reading The Grinch to him. â€˜â€˜He got to see pieces of the movie and it's funny because he'll come up and start saying the lines to me.'' â€˜â€˜We've introduced Evan to Horton Hears a Who! now,'' Carrey says. â€˜â€˜And we're getting him ready for the premiere. Every night he's like, â€˜Horton, Horton, Horton'. He's addicted to it.''
â€˜â€˜Cause Doctor Seuss is f--king alternative to me -- for a kid, it's as punk as you get. It's really kid punk.'' â€˜â€˜When I did The Grinch, I'm like â€˜I'm the f--king grinch!' '' he says, his voice dropping to an awestruck whisper.
