In a recent interview, @JimCarrey got emotional while recalling a harrowing moment he experienced during a trip to Maui  https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/books/story/2020-06-30/jim-carrey-book-memoirs-misinformation 

In 2018, an emergency alert accidentally warned of an incoming ballistic missile attack.

After trying to call his daughter, he made a “gratitude list.” Staggered by the bounty of his life, he closed his eyes and waited for the missiles


During an interview with The LA Times, Carrey wiped away tears and explained what he realized about his life when he thought he had 10 minutes to live  https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/books/story/2020-06-30/jim-carrey-book-memoirs-misinformation 

The image on the cover of his new book "Memoirs and Misinformation" incorporates the experience.

“That’s the cover of the book, my actual face after being told I had 10 minutes to live,” Carrey says


Jim Carrey’s strange new book is a work of autofiction, satirizing Hollywood’s self-absorption.
