David Letterman Finally Exasperates Even Jim Carrey
On Friday, during an appearance on The Late Show to promote "I love you, Phillip Morris," Jim Carrey finally had enough with Letterman's 50s frat boy attitudes toward gay people, prompting the following exchange, which starts at 4:47 in the video above.
Dave: And, in terms of a leading man, a heterosexual playing a homosexual, do homosexuals say "well, that shouldn't have been a homosexual" or do you worry about your image as a heterosexual leading man playing a homosexual?
Jim Carrey: Boy, we haven't grown at all, have we? We haven't grown at all. [To cackles from Paul Schaffer.] We're still children in the schoolyard. Honestly. No offense Dave, for god's sakes, have you ever seen a gay man? Are there gay people in Indiana? Is it ok to be gay there, is what I'm asking. There's not a policy against gay people there or here?
