"There's no meaning to any of this," he told a surprised E! News reporter during a disjointed, awkward interview on Friday at a Harper's Bazaar party in honor of Icons by Carine Roitfeld. "So I wanted to find the most meaningless thing that I could come to and join and here I am."
Complimented on his appearance and how he got dressed up for the evening, he replied, "No, I didn't get dressed up. There is no me. There is just things happening and there are clusters of tetrahedrons moving together."
"It's not our world," he continued. "We don't matter."
He was in Italy last week to bring his film Jim and Andy: The Great Beyond to the Venice Film Festival. The emotional documentary, produced by Spike Jonze, offers a behind the scenes look at the actor's experience playing and becoming the late comedian Andy Kaufman for the 1999 movie Man on the Moon.
"This dream is so good, I'm tempted to keep sleeping," he tweeted with a video of Venice on September 6.
Netflix announced Monday that it has acquired worldwide rights to Jim and Andy.
