Jim Carrey responds to Jenny McCarthy claiming he’s avoided her autistic son

While out promoting her new gig as Love in the Wild host Jenny McCarthy had some pretty harsh words for ex Jim Carrey in regards to his unwillingness to see her autistic son Evan.

I wrote about her comments made to Howard Stern yesterday. We got a lot of interesting feedback in regards to whether or not Jim should still be involved in Evan’s life considering that the two have been apart for a couple of years now and Evan is not Jim’s biological son.

In part McCarthy said:

“I’ve tried to ask Jim numerous times to see Evan, because my son still asks… But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up.”

Carrey didn’t remain silent about the comments made from the extremely outspoken former Playboy centerfold. Here’s what Jim had to say about the situation:

“I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan’s well being. It’s unfortunate that Evan’s privacy is not being considered.  I love Evan very much and will miss him always.”

Insiders with TMZ find it a little more than coincidental that McCarthy made these statements while out trying to drum up press for Love in the Wild which featured a much lower premiere rating than last year. Just for an idea of what the chat with Stern was like, here’s McCarthy talking about how good she is at certain sexual practices. We’re talking about Stern here after all (read – adult content and language bleeps):

Jenny’s never directly contacted Jim about this issue.
