But here is where the hypocrisy really raises its head. Carrey writes:
I would trade my money, my fame, my reputation and legacy if there were the slightest chance of preventing the anguish of another Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, or Sandy Hook Elementary School. I ask you, truly, what manner of human being would not?But not his life (see the reference to having an armed bodyguard, above). And, considering the glorification of violence in Hollywood films, whether Carrey would trade his money and fame, it is clear that Hollywood as a whole would not.
