“I’ve never met anyone quite like Jay. And I will say, and I’m happy to say, that I think he’s the funniest guy I’ve ever known. … Therefore, the fact that he is also maybe the most insecure person I have ever known, I could never reconcile that.”
The full interview is set to air on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on Sunday, January 6 at 9 p.m. ET.
