Jim Carrey: David Letterman Is Not The Jerk He Looked Like On TV

It’s no big deal David Letterman asked him “Do you worry about your image as a heterosexual leading man playing a homosexual?,” says Jim Carrey. Despite that truly awkward line of questioning on Friday, during an interview to promote Carrey’s I Love You Phillip Morris, the actor says he and the late night host are still seeing eye-to-eye: “You know what he said to me?,” he tells Us. “He honestly said to me that he’s been watching me for a long time and that this movie was really special and he thought it was the best thing I’ve ever done. [Letterman] was super, super, super supportive of it.”

    And this is why I hate it when hets get involved in anything gay.

    i think carrey is in fact gay but doesn’t dare or know how to work with the subject. letterman, for all his quirks, is always looking for good gay things to support. he may only be patronizing this project if it’s not good, but that’s what a host does.

    It’s actually a really good movie.

    So. I was right. They’re both pretty obnoxious and we really had nothing to get riled up over here. Good to know.

    Let’s get one thing right – Jim Carrey is a brilliant actor, comedian and entertainer. Dumber and Dumber, The Mask, The Truman Show, Ace Ventura, Eternal Sunshine…

    See this film, it’s good fun. Carrey makes the role his own and shows why he’s survived so long in Hollywood.

    Sometimes they give Emmy’s for talk show guest appearances. I remember bette midler winning one for an appearance on the johnny carson show.

    jim carrey should win an Emmy for that appearance. I could write a long narrative about why, many reasons, but I’ll just put it out there. No way around it, jim carrey should be nominated and win an Emmy for that appearance.
