Jim Carrey Causes Havoc on ‘Today’

To promote his new movie “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” Jim Carrey appeared on NBC’s “Today” this week, and what an appearance it was.

Larry King: “The Scene was So Romantic, I Almost Lost My Heterosexuality”

Larry King is reflecting on his tub-sharing moment with Jim Carrey on the Late Show last night. On his blog, King writes, “The tub was slippery.

The Champagne wasn’t bad either. The bubbles were very…bubbly. All it lacked was music. Sinatra would have been nice.”
