Jim Carrey knows that Ewan McGregor is a great kisser, after having to share kissing scenes with him.
Carrey and McGregor star in I Love You Phillip Morris, a film about two men who fall in while in jail.
Carrey told Parade, “I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser.”
Carrey admitted he wasn’t sure how he’d be able to kiss a man, but explained, “As Ewan said, ‘When you’re kissing another guy it can get a little prickly. Actually, you had to put out of your mind your own sexual preference and just try to understand that you were loving another person who just happens to be a guy. It wasn’t about male or female, love is love.”
Carrey admitted that he’s facing some ups and downs since his split with Jenny McCarthy in April.
“There’s always some sort of deep undercurrent running under things for me. I’ve had peaks of kind of enlightenment where I felt like, ‘Oh, wow. I’ve got to figure it out. This is it. Okay. I have peace. I have bliss.’ And, then, boom, off the wave into the surf, and you’re struggling again. I definitely have those scared to death moments, but they’re what make you interesting,” Carrey said.
