He instructed Variety: “‘The Mask’ was the first film I ever went to see in a theatre — my mom took me when I was four, and it blew me away…
“I texted him the handle of my condominium in L.A., and he stated, ‘I can actually see your home from my balcony,’ and we obtained out telescopes and had been waving to one another.
“And when I told him about my mom taking me to see ‘The Mask,’ he knew the theatre!
“Anyway, on my birthday, he known as and instructed me to look out my window, and on his balcony he had these large crimson balloons, and he picked me up and we went to breakfast. It was surreal.
“Jim Carrey was my first inspiration to be any kind of performer, and I went to breakfast with him on my first day of being 30.”
The ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ hitmaker – whose actual title is Abel Tesfaye – admitted his current birthday has led to some “self-realisation” and he is excited concerning the subsequent chapter in his life.
He stated: “I think people say your 30s are your best years because you’re becoming the person you’re supposed to be. And this is the beginning of not just a new chapter but my second decade [as a performer]. I feel like my career is just starting.”
