One of the biggest perks of having your mom date Jim Carrey has got to be the ability to channel Horton from Horton Hears a Who for a private performance, just about anytime you wish. Jenny McCarthy’s son Evan Joseph Asher is almost certainly taking advantage of that perk these days, as the 5 ½-year-old recently figured out that Jim does indeed provide the voice of the lead character in the new film.
We took a walk around today, and he said, ‘You know, you’re Horton. You’re in the movie. You did the voice.’ As if I needed to know that information. It was cool.
Jim says that he’s been reading The Grinch Who Stole Christmas to Evan "forever" but Evan is unaware that Jim played the title character in the film version of that Dr. Seuss classic in 2000. Besides, Jim doesn’t need to name drop to impress Evan, he says.
I think he thinks I’m pretty cool anyway. It’s pretty great.
Evan is Jenny’s child with ex-husband John Asher; She and Jim have been dating since 2005. Jim also has a daughter, Jane Erin, 20.
