The Oprah Winfrey Show
28 Sep 2008    

By Priya B (Web correspondent)

Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy were on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Wednesday, 24th. It was a show mostly about Jenny's new book 'Mother Warriors'. Jim wrote one chapter in the book.

The first half hour Oprah interviewed Jenny about her new book and how her son has recovered from autism. Then Jenny said her prayers were answered when Jim came into her life as he stood by her during tough times when she was dealing with her son's sickness. He also played an important part in her own coping up with this situation. Jenny said that at first she was nervous to tell Jim the truth about her son. But when the truth came pouring out she had a "nervous breakthrough", as Jim called it.

Then for the first time Jim spoke about his deep relationship with Jenny and her son Evan. Jim said at first he feared that Jenny has gone away from his life forever when she said goodbye to him after her son became seriously ill. But, he was glad that she was back in his life and they both took care of Evan together. Jim also said that Evan has made him realize that autistic children are here to teach us all a lesson in love. Gradually he and Evan got along together very well and Evan has recovered. They have a blast each time they are together as they play Star Wars impressions back and forth all day long. Over the years, Jim has been Jenny's shoulder to cry on, as well as a voice of reason. Jim believes that if you convince yourself that you deserve to be loved, it can and will happen. Jim credits Evan with bringing him and Jenny together.
