Jim Carrey may have spent most of his time in Batman Forever cackling maniacally as the Riddler, but apparently no laughs were had behind the scenes. Carrey has mentioned in the past that he and Tommy Lee Jones (who costarred as the villainous Two-Face) did not get along. Hence he talked a little about it again while chatting with Norm MacDonald this week.
In the third season of Norm MacDonald's online talk show (via EW), Norm MacDonald Live, Carrey recalled, "I was the star, and that was the problem". "Phenomenal actor, though. Still love him". I really don't like you.' And I said, 'What's the problem?' And pulled up a chair, which probably wasn't smart.
Carrey said the blood drained from Jones' face when the two ran into each other at the same restaurant before shooting the biggest scene they had together in the movie. "And I went over and I said, "Hey, Tommy, how ya doin"?' And the blood just drained from his face, like he had been thinking about me 24 hours a day". "He started shaking and he got up and... he must have been in mid-kill-me fantasy or something". He went to hug me and said, 'I hate you. He might have been uncomfortable doing that work, too. "And I said, 'Gee, man, what's the problem?' And I pulled up a chair - which probably wasn't smart - and he said, 'I can not sanction your buffoonery'". "That's not really his style of stuff".

They are loose and confident, and that could help a young team playing in Yankee Stadium , as well. Led by rookie slugger Aaron Judge , the Yankees captured the top AL wild card with a 91-71 record.
Sure, saying he was "the star" isn't quite fair because he wasn't the one tasked with playing the Dark Knight, but aside from all the buzz surrounding Val Kilmer filling Michael Keaton's shoes, I do remember one of the bigger talking points around that time being that of Carrey's involvement.
Carrey also said that Jones "might have been uncomfortable" and out of his element filming "Batman Forever".
Regardless of Jones' comments, Carrey still had nice things to say about him.
