Jim Carrey and Ariana Grande just became besties. The comedian has recently commended the singer for posting a quote by him regarding how to deal with depression.

Grande shared the quote on her Instagram Story this past weekend.

“Depression is your body saying, ‘I don’t want to be this character anymore. I don’t want to hold up this avatar that you’ve created in the world. It’s too much for me,'” it read. “You should think of the word ‘depressed’ as ‘deep rest.’ Your body needs to be depressed. It needs deep rest from the character that you’ve been trying to play.”

Carrey was quick to thank Grande for mentioning him in her post. He wrote, “@ArianaGrande I read your lovely mention of me and things I’ve said about depression. A brilliant teacher and friend, Jeff Foster was OG on the “Deep Rest” concept.”

The actor went on to compliment Grande on her "openness" and wished her "freedom and peace." “I feel blessed to have such a gifted admirer. Happy Easter!” Carrey finished.

Grande recently shared alarming scans of her brain which showed she was suffering from anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder on her Instagram Story, likely after the bombings which killed 22 people at her concert in Manchester, U.K. in 2017, along with the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller in 2018.
