In his latest comedy Yes Man, Jim Carrey must say "yes" to every opportunity that comes across his path. In real life, the comedian, 47, has already said yes to a lifetime of love with girlfriend Jenny McCarthy, 36. While these two are happily content to stay unmarried, McCarthy tells OK! that Jim is truly the love of her life and credits him with helping her son, Evan, (who was diagnosed with Austism at 2) get better.
"Jim is a natural therapist," she explains. "Evan had a lot of anxiety issues, and Jim would soothe his fears by letting him know that it was safe to try something new."
The party of three seem pretty tight. So what do they do when Jim is away making movies? According to Jenny, she and her funnyman pick up right where they left off at home!
"We text about four times a day. And we talk about three times," she reveals to OK!. "I go online and check him out. I tell him his outfit looks cute!"
Jenny says she and Jim also use a web cam from time to time!
"I haven’t done any dancing, but I make him do that!" she says. "It’s nice! With the iChat, we’re always afraid that there’s a third party watching! We’re a little bit careful, but it’s a great way to have that face connection!"
You’d think with two comedians in the house, life would be non-stop laughter, but Jenny says she and Jim are much more serious than people think.
"It’s not that we are that funny — like ‘ha, ha, ha,’ when we are with each other" she explains. "I think that’s because we have to do that so often — Jim now more than me. I’m a little more serious now with my work. We talk about real issues."
