Two Guys and a Girl
star Traylor Howard
reveals that she briefly
pictured herself dating Jim Carrey
. But the actress who appeared
opposite the Grinch
star in last summer's comedy disappointment Me,
Myself & Irene
says that someone else planted the romance bug in her
"Before I did the movie, my friend said he could see me and Jim going out,"
Howard tells the TV Guide Channel. "I'm like, 'Yeah, maybe.' [But] then there
was [his Irene leading lady] Renee [Zellweger], so
apparently that worked. Nothing for me."
Howard still managed to get some action with the $20 million-a-movie man. In
the film, the two share a kiss. And when the cameras weren't rolling, Howard
who admits she came into the film thinking Carrey would be "really out there"
says the actor was funny, professional, yet slightly obsessive. "He'd call the
director at four in the morning over, like, one line," she recalls.
Back on the small screen, Howard's Two Guys and a Girl character is
adjusting to married life with new hubby, Johnny (Nathan Fillion). "We
seem to be fighting a lot in the episodes," she notes. "I don't know if that
happens in marriages... but then they always have us make up."
In addition to her alter ego's new domestic situation, Howard is also getting
used to her changing wardrobe. "I get to wear lingerie this year," she points
out. "Last week, I looked practically naked in the entire episode.
"We're not going to do that anymore," Howard adds. "My parents called me and
they were like, 'You looked like you were naked.'"
