Remember, in 1995, came out the movie "Batman Forever" by Joel Schumacher. Maligned by critics and fans, the director had been forced to apologize for "killing Batman." At the time, Jim Carrey interprets the Riddler, one of Batman's enemies that associates with Two-Face, played by Tommy Lee Jones, hoping to bring down the hero.

Guests in the podcast "Norm MacDonald Live" Jim Carrey is back on the set of the film somewhat difficult, and for good reason: his co-star Tommy Lee Jones so ... visceral hated! He remembers well that shortly before shooting a big scene together, he crossed by chance in a restaurant: "The server told me "Oh, I've heard that you are working with Tommy Lee Jones. It's just there having dinner." I went to see him and told him: "Hey Tommy, how are you?"And he became livid. He began to shake, he was dreaming of killing me or anything like that. Then he took me in his arms and said: "I hate you. I really do not like you". I answered him : "What's your problem ?" and I grabbed a chair, which was not very clever. And he told me: "I can not stand your buffoonery.""

It was not his thing. "Still, Jim Carrey said that the altercation had nothing marred the image he has of Tommy Lee Jones," It's a phenomenal actor. I still love him, "he concluded.
