He doesn't believe Leno has feelings...
RadarOnline reports that Jimmy Kimmel's negative feelings toward Jay Leno still haven't changed.
Kimmel in a recent interview reportedly stated the following about Leno: "I always feel bad if I hurt anybody's feelings, but I don't believe Jay Leno has actual feelings, and he doesn't seem to be that worried about other people's feelings."
Kimmel then added: "I have a filter mechanism in my head every night when I put together the monologue for our show: If I can imagine Jay Leno telling a joke, then I won't do it, even if it's a good joke. There are three ways he does a joke, every single time, always with the same rhythm. The more I thought about it the madder it made me. I didn't want him to just get away scot-free with what was happening all over again. Keep in mind this was the second time he'd done this. The first time, he'd elbowed Dave out of the Tonight Show gig, and now he'd done it to Conan. I felt there had to be some kind of comeuppance — not that I knew I'd do what I did."
Kimmel did compliment Leno in saying, "I haven't met anyone who knows more than he does about how ratings and the business of late-night television work."
