Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones had great chemistry as The Riddler and Two-Face in Batman Forever, but that didn’t follow them off-screen.
Carrey was on The Howard Stern Show yesterday morning and revealed that he didn’t get along with Tommy Lee Jones at all on the set of Batman Forever.
“I walked into a restaurant the night before our big scene in The Riddler’s lair. The [waiter] said ‘you’re working with Tommy Lee Jones aren’t ya? He’s in the back corner’. I said ‘oh great, I’ll go say hi’. I went up to say hi and the blood drained from his face in such a way that I realized that I’ve become the face of his pain. He got up, kind of shaking, and hugged me and said ‘I hate you. I really don’t like you’. I was like ‘wow, ok. What’s going on man?’. He said ‘I cannot sanction your buffoonery’.”
That’s pretty awkward! Listen to Carrey tell the full story in the audio player below.
