How Jim Carrey Avenged Chris Isaak’s Forcible Kiss on Cameron Diaz

The Mask, starring Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz, was one of the most popular comedies of the 1990s. Both young actors’ careers were greatly aided by the success of the film. Carrey was even nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance.

Carrey cemented their friendship at the 1995 MTV Movie Awards by avenging Diaz after singer Chris Isaak forcibly kissed her on stage.

A shocking moment occurred at the 1995 MTV Movie Awards, decades before the Me Too movement. The incident resurfaced recently on TikTok and other social media platforms.

Diaz and Isaak were presenting the award for Best Kiss. The “Wicked Game” singer leaned in and wrapped his arm around her. She drew back and raised her arm to stop him. “Come here, baby,” Isaak said.

Diaz continued to speak her lines and present the award even after Isaak grabbed her wrist. She told the audience that the kisses nominated for the award occurred “at the director’s request,” implying that Isaak’s advances were not welcome.

As Diaz continued to lean away from him, Isaak said, “Excuse me,” stepped in front of her, and kissed her forcibly. Then he made the embarrassing remark, “I knew you’d come around.”

Jim Carrey hilariously retaliated against Cameron Diaz by giving Chris Issak a taste of his own medicine.

That year, the Best Kiss award went to Jim Carrey and Lauren Holly for Dumb and Dumber.

So, Carrey took advantage of the situation to exact vengeance on the singer. The Mask star embraced Isaak as he walked onto the stage to accept the award.

Although there is no footage of Carrey kissing the singer, it appears he did. As Carrey walks away, an agitated Isaak turns and wipes his mouth.

Fans have speculated that Carrey planted a smooch in retaliation for Isaak’s unwanted kiss since the video resurfaced.

Years later, Jim Carrey weighed in on another infamous awards show incident.

Over the years, many cringe-worthy moments have occurred at award shows. Will Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage at the 2022 Academy Awards, the most recent incident.

Smith won the Best Actor Oscar later that evening. He received a standing ovation, which sparked outrage.

Carrey was particularly shocked by the audience’s reaction: “I was sickened by the standing ovation. I felt like Hollywood is just spineless en masse,” he told CBS Mornings. “It really felt like, ‘Oh, this is a really clear indication that we’re not the cool club anymore.”
