Jim Carrey has blasted Tom Cruise, branding him ''a jerk'' in a US TV interview
Jim Carrey has blasted Tom Cruise and Angelina Jolie.
The 'Christmas Carol' star appeared on US chat show 'Chelsea Lately' stating he wanted to cut some celebrities down to size, branding them "spoiled brats".
When host Chelsea Handler suggested he start with Tom Cruise, Jim replied: "Oh, set before me a meal - oh my God! A Christmas feast!"
He sarcastically added: "Tom Cruise - let me see - one of the hardest working people I've ever seen and, like, a total gentleman and *******. What a jerk!"
He was much keener on Chelsea's next suggestion, Brad Pitt, however.
Jim, 47, jokingly said: "Well you really can't say anything about Brad Pitt. Angelina Jolie? Oh yeah, so she's the problem for sure, we're ok with him, seriously, because he can do no wrong."
Jim also said that despite appearing in 'A Christmas Carol' as central character Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past , present and future, he doesn't have any paranormal connections himself.
Referring to his partner, model Jenny McCarthy, he added: "I don't really have that connection. Jenny is very much more connected to the ghostly realm. She sees things every once in a while, she'll yell, 'There's a naked wrinkled man in the bedroom, I think he might be dead and looking for the other side'."
'A Christmas Carol' is in cinemas now.
