Jim Carrey will ''always'' miss Jenny McCarthy's son Evan.
The 'Mr. Popper's Penguin's actor is believed to have not seen the 10-year-old - who Jenny had with former husband John Mallory Asher - since they split in 2010, but he claims he has always had the youngster's best interests at heart.
According to TMZ.com, he said: ''I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan's well being. It's unfortunate that Evan's privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always.''
Jenny - who is now dating NFL player Brian Urlacher - has claimed she asked Jim to visit her son often because he regularly asks about him.
She said: ''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.
''I tell [Evan] that someday you'll cross paths, meet again. . . [but] it's hard. He's been in therapy. It's a process, he's working on it.''
