While on the show last week promoting his new movie I Love You Phillip Morris, David Letterman, 63, asked Carrey, "Do you worry about your image as a heterosexual leading man playing a homosexual?"

Carrey responded, "We haven't grown at all, have we? We're still children in the schoolyard."

However, at Monday night's NYC screening of Carrey's comedy (hosted by Cinema Society and DeLeon Tequila), the funnyman said there are no hard feelings.

"You know what he said to me?" Carrey told UsMagazine.com. "He honestly said to me that he's been watching me for a long time and that this movie was really special and he thought it was the best thing I've ever done."

"[Letterman] was super, super, super supportive of it," Carrey added.
