"I've tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks, I haven't [reached out directly]. I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other. But I still love him. I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up."
McCarthy, who's a former Playmate, announced she will be posing nude in Playboy again.
It's never easy to suffer through a break up with someone who you used to truly love, but if Carrey bonded with the son before he shouldn't let his feelings for his ex affect their relationship.
On the other hand we think McCarthy should try and contact her former boyfriend directly if she really wants him to see her son - that's the right thing to do!
Regardless, it isn't a fun situation for anyone, but the children should never suffer!
