Unpleasantries during 'Batman Forever' filming

Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jo<130>nes were in “Batman Forever.”

In an interview on "The Howard Stern Show" this week, Jim Carrey talked about his time working with Tommy Lee Jones during the filming of "Batman Forever." Carrey came up to Jones in a restaurant to say hi and said Jones "got up, kind of shaking and hugged me and said, 'I hate you. I really don't like you,' " Carrey told Howard Stern. "He did not want to work with me at that point." Carrey surmises that Jones was "freaked out" by Carrey because his silly, yet successful comedy "Dumb and Dumber" came out the same weekend as Jones' serious biopic "Cobb," about baseball player Ty Cobb. " 'Cobb' was his big swing for the fences and that didn't work out and that freaked him out a bit, I think," said Carrey.
