Ariana Grande Thanks Longtime Idol Jim Carrey for Advice on Depression

70

Ariana Grande is living proof that even the world's biggest pop stars get starstruck. 

Two days after the "Thank U, Next" singer shared a quote about depression from Jim Carrey on her Instagram story, she received a response from her idol publicly over Twitter — and didn't hide her excitement. 

In his tweet, Carrey shares a quote from his "brilliant teacher and friend" Jeff Foster about a concept called "deep rest." The actor also expressed his respect for Grande, saying, "I admire your openness" and, "I feel blessed to have such a gifted admirer." 

"I can’t process this or breathe hold on," the 25-year-old songstress tweeted upon seeing his response. 

Grande — who previously admitted she once held "jimcarreyfan42" as an AIM username — shared Carrey's message on her Instagram and thanked him for his kindness in a follow-up tweet, calling him an "inspiration." 

"I don’t think u understand how much i adore u or what u mean to me. thank u for taking the time to share this w me," she said. "I can’t wait to tattoo this tweet to my forehead."
