Jim Carrey slammed for 'creepy' comments about Margot Robbie's looks
Jim Carrey has found himself in hot water after certain comments he made towards Australian actress Margot Robbie during their appearance on BBC's The Graham Norton Show.
While promoting his upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog movie, Carrey took a moment to discuss his excitement at meeting the Oscar-nominated actress. However, after revealing he had never been to Australia himself, Carry made a comment about Robbie's looks that several viewers have branded "creepy"
You can watch the uncomfortable moment in the video below:
Despite Robbie laughing off the comment and continuing with the show like a professional, many viewers took to Twitter to slam the Liar Liar star for the remark.
Arnie Maloney tweeted: "So there we have it. @JimCarrey is a sexist, objectifying piece of crap, claiming Margot Robbie’s success is down to her physical attractiveness and nothing else. Incorrect. She’s a fecking great actress. What the hell was he thinking?"
Twitter user @zwaslike said: "That joke Jim Carrey make towards Margot Robbie about her looks and talent was so awkward. Kudos to her for just laughing and taking it on the chin, I’d have slapped him."
Another viewer by the name of Ali tweeted her thoughts on the show, saying: "I always thought Jim Carrey was funny, but watching him talk to Margot Robbie, rude and creepy".

And viewer Paul Maddock shared on Twitter: "Jim Carey is difficult to watch. Not keen on his insinuation about Margot Robbie’s looks being her talent. She is a bloody Oscar nominee!"
To which, one person with the Twitter handle @Channers17 and who claimed to have been in the audience for the recording of the show, responded: "I was in the audience last night, it wasn't just that comment that pissed her off. The part he said he has never been to Australia he cracked another joke asking her whether she's aboriginal! She was taken aback by that [as well] but [the BBC] cut that part out"
Robbie appeared on the show to promote her upcoming Harley Quinn movie, Bird of Prey. The 29-year-old actress is also nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this year's Academy Awards for her role in Bombshell.
