LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jenny McCarthy and son Evan are still dealing with the fallout of her breakup from Jim Carrey.
The always-candid actress opened up about her 2010 split from the actor and its effects on her 10-year-old son.
“I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks,” she said on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show earlier this week.
The 39-year-old bombshell, who is currently dating Chicago Bears player Brian Urlacher, admitted to still having feelings for the box office star.
“I haven’t [reached out directly]… I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other… But I still love him,” she continued. ““I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. 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.”
Adding, “I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again…[but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.”
On Wednesday, Jim released a statement to Access Hollywood about Jenny’s comments.
“I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan’s well-being,” the actor said in the statement. “It’s unfortunate that Evan’s privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always.”
