Jenny McCarthy is on the cover of the latest People magazine talking about her new book, Louder Than Words. McCarthy writes about her son, 5-year-old Evan, and how they have dealt with his autism through unconventional therapies.
“I don’t want to come across like a preacher,” she says. “All I’m doing is showing there are things you can do to ease autism. At 3 he had the skills of a 1-year-old. [Now] people are shocked when they meet him.”
McCarthy says that Evan’s autism affected her marriage with her ex-husband, however she now has a “beautiful relationship” with actor Jim Carrey. She said she was anxious about introducing Evan to Jim, “But Jim reacted better than anyone ever did. He was intrigued. He asked questions…Beyond doubt it was written in the stars that Jim and Evan were a pair. He’s actually helped Evan get past some obstacles I couldn’t.”
