Running around promoting I Love You Phillip Morris, Jim Carrey popped up on David Letterman’s program on Friday night. And boy did Mr. Letterman manage to step in it!
Asked by Letterman whether he “[worries] about your image as a heterosexual leading man playing a homosexual?,” Carrey responds: “Boy, we haven’t grown at all, have we? We haven’t grown at all. … No offense Dave, for God’s sakes, have you ever seen a gay man? Are there gay people in Indiana? ‘Is it okay to be gay there?,’ is what I’m asking. There’s not a policy against gay people there or here?”
“I’m just asking,” says Dave, “what I think is a fairly routine question.”
At least Dave didn’t ask Jim to make his best gay face?
