Jim Carrey has amazing stories about how much Tommy Lee Jones hated him

wenn21132843

I never saw Batman Forever, the one with Val Kilmer as the Batman and Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones as the bad guys (the Riddler and Two-Face). That one and the George Clooney Bat-nippled one just kind of escaped me. But I remember hearing stuff about the Batman Forever production and how tortuous the whole thing was everyone involved. Tommy Lee Jones was fresh off his Oscar win for The Fugitive and he clearly just signed on to the Batman movie for the money. And he was stuck doing scenes with Jim Carrey, who was at the height of his popularity/film stardom. Tommy was and is a “real actor” with a great education and real training. Carrey was just cut from a different cloth. So yeah, they hated each other. Jim is doing interviews to promote Dumb and Dumber To and he stopped by Howard Stern. Stern asked him about the Tommy Lee situation:

Jim Carrey, 52, was asked about his time with Jones when he appeared on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, Oct. 28, in promotion of his upcoming movie Dumb and Dumber To.

“When you were doing Batman Forever, when you were making that, the legend goes that you were on the set fighting with this guy Tommy Lee Jones the whole time,” Howard Stern began. “The two of you did not get along at all, you annoyed him, he annoyed you…”

The comedian did not deny the claims and reflected back to his time filming the superhero movie with Jones, now 68.

“I think what happened was, I was really looking forward to working with Tommy because he’s a fantastic actor and he still is to me, I mean he’s amazing, but he was a little crusty, he was a little crusty,” Carrey said, going on to joke about Jones’ Ivy League education. “Sometimes that Rhodes Scholarship is more of a weapon than an asset.”

“I think he was just a little freaked out because Dumb and Dumber came out on the same weekend as Cobb, and Cobb was his big swing for the fences and that didn’t work out and that freaked him out a bit I think,” the actor continued, referencing Jones’ 1994 Ty Cobb biopic, which opened to mixed reviews from critics and less-than-stellar box office numbers. Any suspicions Carrey had that Jones felt negatively about him were confirmed one night during the filming of Batman Forever.

“I walked into a restaurant the night before our big scene in the Riddler’s lair and the maitre’d said, ‘You’re working with Tommy Lee Jones, aren’t you?’ And I said ‘Yeah, I am.’ He said, ‘He’s in the back corner, he’s having dinner.’ I said, ‘Oh, great, I’ll go say hi.’” Carrey told Stern. “I went up to say hi and the blood drained from his face, in such a way that I realized that I had become the face of his pain or something.”

“He got up, kind of shaking, and hugged me and said ‘I hate you. I really don’t like you,’” Carrey added. “I was like ‘Wow, okay. Well, what’s going on man?’ And he said, ‘I cannot sanction your buffoonery.’ He did not want to work with me at that point.”

[From Us Weekly]

Ha!!! Jim makes Tommy Lee sound like Yosemite Sam. “Sir, I say SIR, I cannot sanction your buffoonery! Good day!” And yes, “crusty” is a great description for Tommy Lee. Even Harrison Ford was terrified of Tommy Lee and Harrison is one of the butchest, manliest actors out there. Tommy Lee really is the human version of Grumpy Cat. As for Jim… I think he’s being honest and I don’t really think this story is shocking or anything. Everyone knew Tommy hated Jim. Jim didn’t even diss Tommy that hard!

Oh, and there were some requests for Jim’s take on Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln ads. This is the best version of Jim Carrey!

Hannibal Buress didn’t think people would notice his Bill Cosby rape jokes

Hannibal Buress

This story is a real mess. Have you ever heard of stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress? The dude has enjoyed moderate success even though he’s not a household name. Hannibal wrote for SNL for a few seasons and did the same for 30 Rock for half a season. You may have seen his routines on Comedy Central or some late-night network talk shows (such as Fallon and Letterman). Hannibal’s also known for his Broad Street stint.

Hannibal performed last Thursday in Philly. He went off on Bill Cosby. The rant was based on rape allegations made against Cosby over the years. Vulture has published a handy comprehensive timeline of these abuse charges, which were rehashed after the Cosby: His Life and Times biography came out in September. That book avoided the allegations against Cosby that gathered dust for over a decade. Most of the cases were civil in nature and settled out of court by Cosby. It’s worth noting that Cosby has never publicly responded to the allegations. Nor has he been charged in a criminal court.

Hannibal decided to make these accusations part of his comedy routine. The video (with NSFW language) of Thursday’s performance can be watched here. This is what Hannibal said:

“Thirteen [women]. It’s even worse because Bill Cosby has the f—ing smuggest old black man public persona that I hate. He gets on TV, ‘Pull your pants up black people, I was on TV in the 80s! I can talk down to you because I had a successful sitcom!’ Yeah, but you rape women, Bill Cosby, so turn the crazy down a couple notches. ‘I don’t curse on stage!’ But yeah, you’re a rapist though, so…

“I guess I want to just at least make it weird for you to watch Cosby Show reruns. Dude’s image, for the most part, is a public Teflon image. I’ve done this bit on stage and people don’t believe me, people think I’m making it up. ‘Bill Cosby has a lot of rape allegations.’ ‘No, you do!’ When you leave here, Google ‘Bill Cosby rape.’ That sh-t has more results than ‘Hannibal Buress.’”

[From YouTube]

Some of these allegations against Cosby date back to the 1970s. Pre-internet awareness. A lot of people haven’t heard these things about Cosby and only know him as the affable, kooky fatherly figure on network television. Cosby is preparing to return to primetime, so Hannibal’s routine is timely.

Hannibal’s remarks went viral. People took notice, and many learned about these Cosby allegations for the first time. Hannibal visited Howard Stern to discuss the fallout. He says the attention was “unexpected. It wasn’t my intention to make it part of a big discussion. It was just something I was doing at that venue, right there. It’s just information that’s out there. I said it and I gotta stand on it, but it is an interesting situation.

Yes, it is interesting. Hannibal also said this on Twitter:

Does Mark Wahlberg hate that his brother Donnie is marrying Jenny McCarthy?

wenn21506568

I guess Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy got married this weekend. There’s no confirmation about their wedding except for this TMZ story, which is getting wide play – apparently, Mark Wahlberg doesn’t care for Jenny McCarthy so Mark skipped the wedding. So… did the wedding take place? I honestly don’t see anything about it anywhere and it’s 8:30 am on Sunday.

If you’re looking for Mark Wahlberg this weekend, don’t go to Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy’s wedding — TMZ has learned he won’t be there, and we’re told it’s because he and his wife aren’t fans of the bride.

According to multiple Wahlberg sources, Mark is not as close with Donnie and Jenny as Jenny has made it seem. Or at least, not with Jenny. We’re told Mark’s wife Rhea did not like a recent interview Jenny gave with Howard Stern where she talked about her relationship with Mark.

We’re told brother Bobby won’t be at the wedding either … and ditto for mama W, but that’s because she doesn’t fly.

We contacted Mark, and one of his reps told us he wasn’t attending because he needs to be at a birthday party for his daughter Ella today in L.A. Her 11th b-day is actually Tuesday, but Mark will be filming that day in Boston.

Our sources say there’s absolutely bad blood with Jenny. For what it’s worth … brother Paul will be in attendance. More cake for him.

[From TMZ]

Wow, no Mark, no Bobby and no Mama Wahlberg? Donnie must be the only Wahlberg who can handle Jenny McCarthy for any amount of time. To be fair… eh, I got nothing. I have no shade for Mark and Rhea if they don’t like Jenny. Jenny is a terribly annoying person. After TMZ reported this, Mark did get on Twitter to write this:

So all is well with the Wahlberg clan. Probably not though.

Mark Wahlberg Not Attending Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg Wedding

mark wahlberg, donnie wahlberg & jenny mccarthyBrace yourselves: it’s the last weekend of the summer, and more than a few celebs are said to be tying the knot this weekend. Here’s our first celeb wedding story. Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are said to be getting married this weekend! Jenny’s cousin, Melissa McCarthy, has already said she likely won’t be attending the nuptials. Now word has it Mark Wahlberg also won’t be attending the wedding in NYC. RELATED: Is Melissa McCarthy skipping Jenny McCarthy’s wedding?

TMZ reports that “multiple sources” claim:

Mark is not as close with Donnie and Jenny as Jenny has made it seem. Or at least, not with Jenny. We’re told Mark’s wife Rhea did not like a recent interview Jenny gave with Howard Stern where she talked about her relationship with Mark.

We’re told brother Bobby won’t be at the NYC wedding either … and ditto for mama W, but that’s because she doesn’t fly.

When TMZ contacted Mark’s rep, the rep explained that Mark wasn’t attending the wedding because he had to be in LA for his daughter Ella’s birthday. Her birthday is actually on Tuesday, but they’re celebrating it today because Mark has to be in Boston for filming on Tuesday.

Well, that makes sense. Who knows what’s really going on behind closed doors? Paul Wahlberg will be at the wedding. Hopefully Jenny and Donnie have a beautiful day, and Ella has a great birthday party!

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Is Their Divorce A “Done Deal”? (Fact Or Fiction)

Nick Cannon & Mariah Carey Celebrate Their Anniversay In Paris - FILE PHOTOSThe media’s giving the Beyonce and Jay Z marital problems stories a rest, it looks like. Now the focus is turning to Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, who married in 2008 and are the parents to twins Moroccan and Monroe. According to TMZ, their divorce is a “done deal.” RELATED: Here’s Mariah Carey’s new album!

Sources reportedly told TMZ the couple have been living apart in NYC since last May and see each other only when Nick visits the twins. Divorce lawyers are said to be negotiating a property settlement and custody agreement. Sources claim:

Nick’s appearance on Big Boy’s radio show in March was the beginning of the end. Nick played Big Boy’s game — name the 5 celebs you’ve slept with. Nick named 5, but our sources say the one that made Mariah insane was Kim Kardashian.

We’re told Mariah tore into Nick for weeks … feeling humiliated and the relationship never recovered.

We’re told it went from bad to worse when Nick went on Howard Stern and talked about Mariah not giving it up before they got hitched. She went nuclear.

Our sources say Mariah feels Nick has abandoned her by taking every gig that’s on the table … when they don’t need the money. She’s especially angry because it keeps him away from their kids.

For Nick’s part … we’re told he feels Mariah has become impossible because she surrounds herself with “yes men.” He says she can’t handle it when he dares to disagree with her.

We’re also told Nick is incredulous Mariah is bitching about his work ethic … he says he’s generated $75 million since 2011 for the family.

My goodness. I hope this isn’t true. We’ve never seen a lot of Mariah and Nick, so I’m not sure what to make of all of this. On one hand, I can see Mariah being upset about what Nick’s been saying in interviews (especially the “no premarital sex” claim). I’m not sure why she’d be upset about him discussing Kim Kardashian; it’s public knowledge that they dated.

The whole “working” issue sounds like a common marital issue. The husband wants to earn money while the wife wants family time. Who doesn’t know that debate?  I’d hope they’d be able to work it out, especially since kids are involved. I’ve gotta ask…

Zach Braff Labels Taylor Swift Dating Rumors "Internet Bullsh-t"

Zach Braff wants to be clear:

Yes, he’s at the center of one of Hollywood’s most beloved bromances.

But, no, he’s never been involved in a certain rumored romance.

In a chat with Howard Stern today, Braff was asked if he has ever dated Taylor Swift, responding in the extreme negative and taking a swipe at the celebrity gossip rumor mill in the process.

  • Zach Braff Red Carpet Photo
  • Taylor Swift in Japan

“I’ve met Taylor a few times and she’s a sweet girl…but that was all Internet bulls–t,” the ex-Scrubs star said. “They [the tabloids] said I was dating her, I met her twice, she’s a cool girl, but I was not dating her.”

Braff’s dating resume isn’t shabby, of course.

The comedic actor has gotten it on with Bonnie Somerville and Mandy Moore, to name two hotties. But they’re in the past and he doesn’t want his future filled with any other celebrities.

“When you date another famous person that’s when they really hound you,” Braff explained.” That’s when the paparazzi are outside your house and that’s when you can’t ride your bike through Manhattan because they follow you.”

Braff cited friend Harry Styles as an example of someone “can’t walk two f–king feet or a crowd forms and paparazzi forms” and, although Styles is the “sweetest kid,” Braff “I don’t want that existence.”

As for who has dated Taylor Swift? Well…

Jake Gyllenhaal


Jake Gyllenhaal allegedly took Taylor Swift’s v-card, then dumped her via text. TEXT.

Chelsea Handler Netflix

This is huge news for Chelsea Handler and Netflix.

The comedienne and late night talk show host has officially decided to take her considerable talents, and audience, to Netflix! Chelsea alluded to this move in an interview with Howard Stern in March, saying “If I was going to continue working in this industry, I knew I had to do something outside the box to keep myself interested. I wanted to sit with the cool kids at lunch so I approached Netflix to make sure they were as cool as I thought they were, and when I confirmed my suspicions, like with any other future lover, I made my move.”

In addition to moving her talk show over to Netflix, Chelsea will also be getting a stand-up comedy special, as well as four “docu-comedy” specials.

Kim Kardashian in a white column dress in Cannes: flattering or ridiculous?

FFN_Kardashian_Kim_BRK_061814_51454729

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian in Cannes last night. She was attending a yacht party thrown by The Daily Mail/Mail Online, which she has said in the past is her favorite media outlet. The Mail loves Kim too – they always buy the exclusive photos of her vacations and such.

As for these photos… for the love of God. This is horrible styling and a bad dress. Remember how thin Kim looked before the wedding? I guess it was liposuction or something and the weight came back quickly. The back zipper looks incredibly strained. Hang on, Zipper! You are doing God’s work. As for the styling… God, I hate it when she does center parts. It makes her face looks extra plastic/Botoxy.

Would you like to know what Kim got Kanye for his 37th birthday last week? According to Us Weekly, she got him a brand-new customized Monopoly game. Us Weekly says it cost her $19.99 (I don’t believe that) and that Hasbro allowed Kim to “make [her] own Chance and Community Chest cards, property spaces, and game pieces.” Kim personalized Kanye’s game by changing Park Avenue to the Palace of Versailles, etc.

Oh, and Howard Stern asked Donald Trump who he would rather bang, Jennifer Lopez or Kim, and Donald dissed Kim, saying: “In the old days, they’d say she has a bad body.” When Stern pressed him on who he would choose, Trump said: “I’d pass on both of them.” I know you guys love it when anyone disses Kim, but really… why does Donald Trump matter? At all?

Jonah Hill Apologizes Again For Gay Slur on Tonight Show, Makes Emotional Plea

An emotional Jonah Hill went on the The Tonight Show Tuesday night to offer a second, sincere apology for his homophobic outburst at a photographer.

Hill lost his cool after being followed by several photographers while walking with a friend in Los Angeles’ Larchmont district over the weekend.

When one paparazzo tried to elicit a response by teasing him about his outfit, Hill, who admits he “sucks at being a famous person,” took the bait.

Jonah’s gay slur – “suck my d–k, you f—-t” – went viral immediately.

He won praise for his prompt and sincere apology on Howard Stern’s radio show yesterday, and offered an encore of sorts to Jimmy Fallon.

Acknowledging the gravity of his anti-gay language, Hill asked The Tonight Show host if he could talk to the audience on his program as well.

The actor looked mortified as he tried to explain that he was upset and just wanted to use “the most hurtful word I could think of at that moment.”

“I didn’t mean it in the sense of the word, I didn’t mean it in a homophobic way,” he said, his voice cracking with emotion. “I think that doesn’t matter.”

“How you mean things doesn’t matter. Words have weight and meaning. The word I chose was grotesque and no one deserves to say or hear words like that.”

“My heart’s broken and I am genuinely and deeply sorry to anyone who has ever been affected by that term in their life,” the 30-year-old star continued.

Hill insists he’s not looking for forgiveness as he doesn’t think he deserves it, but does hope his actions can serve as a life lesson to his young fans:

“Use me as an example of what not to do,” he urged, “and don’t respond with hatred or anger. Because you’re just adding more ugliness to the world.”

Kobe Bryant


Kobe Bryant immediately addressed sexual assault charges in 2003. Seated alongside wife Vanessa, he tearfully said he was guilty of adultery, not rape.

Jennifer Esposito sort of slams ex Bradley Cooper as ‘mean, cold, arrogant’

wenn942576

Before Bradley Cooper was a two-time Oscar-nominated actor and one of the most in-demand leading men in Hollywood, he was the fourth lead in a TV show and he had a quickie marriage and quickie divorce to Jennifer Esposito from December 2006 to May 2007. Both Bradley and Jennifer have always remained pretty quiet about what went down between them, but there were always stories/rumors/gossip. I remember hearing stuff about Jennifer finding him in bed with another person (sometimes a guy, sometimes a lady). I remember rumors of violence too. And of course, there are rumors of bearding. But that happens with nearly everyone.

Anyway, Jennifer is sort of down on her luck as an actress these days. So she decided to write a tell-all memoir, but I guess she’s afraid of being sued, so she doesn’t name Bradley Cooper explicitly. So we just have to use the context clues to figure this out.

Jennifer Esposito is trashing ex-husband Bradley Cooper in her new book, a source tells Confidenti@l. While the “American Hustle” star isn’t named, anyone who checks the film website IMDB can safely assume he’s the guy she unceremoniously slams in her memoir, “Jennifer’s Way.” The 41-year-old “Blue Bloods” actress mainly chronicles her lifelong struggle with celiac disease, which included losing teeth on set, having panic attacks, horrific stomach cramps and unsightly rashes.

But about a third of the way through the book, Esposito describes meeting a man who asks her out, and even though there were “an entire marching band squad of red flags,” she chose to ignore them because she didn’t think the relationship would progress. She describes the mystery suitor as, “funny, smart, cocky, arrogant and a master manipulator,” adding that she didn’t “necessarily find him that attractive.” They quickly became a couple, although the actress says her boyfriend had a “mean, cold side” and “his personality could flip on a dime.”

Esposito claims the relationship was an unhealthy one, focused primarily on his needs and nothing else and that she was “a nonissue.” Esposito also writes that she felt “sidelined” from her own health and needs.

“I became very sad and I felt very alone,” Esposito adds, but she stayed in the relationship just the same. The union came to an impasse when Esposito attended a seminar at the Agape International Spiritual Center in L.A. “Within days, my relationship hit an all-time low, and within a week it was over,” she wrote. “Abruptly, rudely, and with the exact callousness that I’d come to expect from him.”

The very next page, Esposito writes of landing a role on a Christina Applegate sitcom, “Samantha Who,” that was on the air in 2007. Her very brief marriage to Cooper was from late December 2006 until May 2007.

Neither party has had much to say about each other since their divorce. When Howard Stern pressed Cooper about the brevity of the marriage in 2011, Cooper vaguely replied, “It was just something that happened. The good thing, we both realized it. … Sometimes you just realize it. It just wasn’t right.”

Esposito was briefly engaged to Aussie tennis player Mark Philippoussis (who starred in a reality dating show for NBC) and is now happily engaged to Brit model Louis Dowler. The two are partners in Esposito’s bakery on E. 10th St., Jennifer’s Way, which serves a variety of gluten-free breads, cookies and muffins.

[From The NY Daily News]

Yeah. I’ll believe this is about Bradley Cooper. This is how he’s always seemed to me too, which is why I’ve always found it hard to believe him as a leading man. I get the “mean, cold side” vibe from him – which is fine when he was a character actor playing douchebags. But he just doesn’t have the warmth to be, say, a romantic lead. What I don’t really understand is this idea of B-Coop as “a master manipulator.” Like, he’s emotionally manipulative? Or he manipulates his public image? He likes to be in control so he dates really young models? Be more specific, Jennifer!
