The 65-year-old comedian continued, "I think when, yeah, like, a lot of times I think to myself. Like, if I die, I'm just gonna have my body cremated. No funeral and anything associated with, like, all my mementos and stuff. You can just burn them and give them away. Like, who cares."

Carey told, "I learned how to believe in myself. Learned how to set goals, you know, self help books man. I just read every single one I can get a hold of and I still do. I read that stuff all the time still, I am always coming out bigger, better, stronger and happier."

The NCIS star shared  that he doesn't think success has made him "spoiled," while updating on his current situation.

"I'd be like, what the hell, coming after my money, you know, so yeah, that's all that's gone,"Carey added.
