In “Batman Forever,” Tommy Lee Jones was friends with Jim Carrey, but his off-screen friendship with his co-star apparently was not.
Initially, many business insiders denied the reports of the feud as mere hearsay.
Eventually, however, Carrey admitted to the rift and even said that Jones had once told him face to face how much he hated him.
In ‘Batman Forever’, Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones starred.
Batman Forever is the sequel to Batman Returns in 1992 and focuses on the superhero (Val Kilmer) and his fight with Jones and Carrey, respectively, against the villains Two-Faced and The Riddler.
Released in 1995, Batman Forever received mixed reviews from both fans and critics.
Nevertheless, according to Box Office Mojo, the movie was a massive hit at the box office, grossing over $330 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million.
The best (and worst) all-time Batman movies.
The relationship between Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones was not as it appeared,
Almost 20 years after the release of the film, Carrey revealed that on the set of Batman Forever, he and Jones clashed.
Carrey said during a 2014 appearance on The Howard Stern Show that he was originally looking forward to working with Jones, but when they met, Jones was “grumpy”
He did not know the exact explanation for the supposed attitude of Jones, but he believed that it had to do with his accomplishments, like Dumb and Dumber, which in 1994 had done better than Jones’ Cobb.
He said, “I think he was just a little freaked out because ‘Dumb and Dumber’ came out the same weekend as ‘Cobb’ and ‘Cobb’ was his big hit and that didn’t work and that freaked him out a little bit,”
When the two bumped into each other at dinner one night, Carrey said, tensions reportedly boiled over. “I went to a restaurant the night before our big scene in The Riddler’s Lair … I walked up to him to say hello and the blood was dripping from his face in such a way that I realized I had become the face of his pain or something,” he recalled.
He stood up, trembling a little bit, hugging me and saying, ‘I hate you. I don’t really like you,'”He stood up, shaking a little bit, hugged me and said, ‘I hate you. I really don’t like you,'” “I was like, ‘Wow, OK. What’s up, man?’ And he was like, ‘I don’t approve of your antics.’ At that point, he didn’t want to work with me anymore.”
“That was a hard blow,” Carrey added. “Going to work the next day was pretty tough.”
Hollywood has made many horrible Jim Carrey movie sequels; which is the worst?
Even, there’s no grudge Jim Carrey holds against Jones.
Carrey does not seem to harp on it, considering her history. “I still love him.”I still love him.
Apparently, Jones, for his part, never commented on his supposed falling out with Carrey. Since then, he hasn’t shared the television with him either and, if we had to say, he probably won’t.
