Jenny McCarthy stopped by Howard Stern’s radio show today and when he asked about her ex-boyfriend, Jim Carrey and Jenny got emotional. She said that her autistic son, Evan asks for Jim almost weekly and she has reached out to Jim to contact Evan and he won’t! Jim and Jenny dated for 5 years, but broke up 2 years ago.
“I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks,” the Love in the Wild host, 39, told Stern, adding that Evan tells her he misses Carrey “almost weekly.”
“I haven’t [reached out directly] . . . I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other,” she explained. “But I still love him. I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up.”
“I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again. . . [but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.”
“Jim’s a dark guy,” Stern remarked during their discussion.
“As you get older, Howard, you kind of get to see things more clearly,” McCarthy explained about moving on from her ex-love. “Hopefully you get happier [over time], and I am so much happier.”
