By Priya Baboota (Web correspondent)
On the American late night comedy talk show on E! "Chelsea Lately" Chelsea Handler interviewed Jim Carrey on November 9th.
Jim made his entrance walking backwards. He waved to the audience and also pointed at some fans saying "Hi how are you doing?" After getting settled on his chair he even said to Chelsea "I love you", which embarrassed her a little. He further added, "He likes this show because it gives a chance for serious comedians like him." He was joking of course about that.

Jim told Chelsea that she could ask him about any actor and she asked him about Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Clearly poking fun at popular misconceptions, starting with Tom Cruise, Jim replied: "Oh, set before me a meal - oh my God! A Christmas feast!"
He jokingly added: "Tom Cruise - let me see - one of the hardest working people I've ever seen and, like, a total gentleman and *******. What a jerk!"
Chelsea asked Jim about an incident outside his London hotel during the 'Christmas Carol' junket. He explained that in the early hours Jenny and he saw a couple 'en flagrante' from their hotel room window. Tweeting that a couple were "going through the tunnel to France", he told everything in detail, even acting out some of the scene.
Later, Chelsea asked Jim about his official website and the Better U Foundation and Generation Rescue websites. Jim praised Jenny for all her hard work helping autistic kids all over the world. He also encouraged sponsoring kids through Generation Rescue to help support their treatments and medicines.
Jim proceeded to talk about his new movie "Disney's A Christmas Carol" explaining how he played the different characters of Ebenezer Scrooge. The three ghosts and the technology and lycra suits involved. Clips were then shown.
Finally, Chelsea wanted to know about his next movie "I Love You Phillip Morris" and discussed playing a gay character with Ewan McGregor and how, despite being straight, he could be irresistible to gay men if he swung that way.
