LARRY'S REFLECTIONS ON THE BATHTUB SCENE WITH JIM CARREY FEATURED IN LETTERMAN'S TOP 10. IT WAS NUMBER 1:
The tub was slippery. The scene was romantic...so romantic that I almost - almost, lost my heterosexuality. And to tell you the truth, I think Jim felt the same way. The lighting was perfect. The Champagne wasn't bad either. The bubbles were very...bubbly. All it lacked was music. Sinatra would have been nice.
The scene was somewhat hampered by having a crew standing around with cameras, and lights, and sound equipment. Jim did wear a bathing suit. I wore a shirt, suspenders, and a tie, which was a good stunt, but wasn't the most comfortable thing in the world. Try swimming in a tie and suspenders when the suspenders aren't attached to anything.
We both were wondering if this was a career-maker. Were any talent scouts watching? After we were dry and ready to leave, someone from the Letterman staff said "do you want to get back in the tub for some bump shots?" The answer was a rousing "no thanks." I just couldn't handle the temptation again.
