Tommy Lee Jones Really Hated Working With Jim Carrey on ‘Batman Forever’

Apparently Tommy Lee Jones is quite the cranky old man. At least he was back in the 90s when he played Harvey Dent, AKA Two Face in Batman Forever.

Jim Carrey, who played The Riddler, was recently on Norm McDonald’s YouTube show, Norm Macdonald Live. During the interview Carrey spills the beans on just how much Jones didn’t like working with him. Jim said:

I went over and said, ‘Hey Tommy, how are you doing?’ and the blood just drained from his face. He got up shaking . . . he must have been in mid-‘kill me’ fantasy or something like that. He went to hug me and he said, ‘I hate you. I really don’t like you.’  And I said, ‘What’s the problem?’ and I pulled up a chair, which probably wasn’t smart.  And he said, ‘I cannot sanction your buffoonery.'”

But the friendship was not completely lost as Carrey added:

“He’s a phenomenal actor, though. I still love him.”

You can see the full video below. Fast forward to one hour and eight minutes for the Tommy Lee Jones stuff. Be warned, it’s full of f-bombs.
