American kamaki? This role was more or less “played” (or was it not played?) by the tempter Jim Carrey in 2010!

While French network TF1’s Eight O’Clock News presenter Claire Cazale turned around to talk to the Hollywood actor about his new film, she found him sitting a few… inches away from her, instead of in the guest seat. He was looking at her with longing in his eyes, as if hypnotized. “I don’t know if people realize how beautiful you are. From here, you’re really great,” she said. “There should be more lights and cameras on you to show that.”

Press Watch on YouTube to see the video:

Laughing, the dainty Kazal, then 53, asked him to turn around in the interviewer’s chair, “where you’ll be more in the light,” and he complied… rolling in his seat.

He managed to talk seriously about his new film, I Love You Phillip Morris, for about two minutes, but he couldn’t resist another chance to flirt with the presenter. When asked about his co-star Ewan McGregor, he lovingly replied: “Not even… compares to you.”

And Carey informed French viewers that he is part Frenchdescendant of a Saint-Malo pirate.

As the end credits rolled and the cameras zoomed in on Kazal, Carrey rushed into her shot and screamed, “Au revoir! Paris, je t’aime! Paris, je t’aime!”, blowing kisses to the viewers!
