Actor Jim Carrey has blasted rumours that he and late comic Robin Williams were involved in a "bitter feud" while the comic was alive.

The Liar Liar actor was reacting to a report that came after the release of Robin, a recently published biography about Williams written by New York Times journalist Dave Itzkoff.

In one passage in the book about Williams' apparent jealousy of Carrey, Itzkoff claimed Williams was upset at learning the Dumb and Dumber star had landed the role of The Riddler in 1995 film Batman Forever - a part he had earlier turned down.

RadarOnline subsequently posted an article entitled "Robin 'Completely Freaked Out' Over Jim's Success: Their Bitter Feud Exposed" - a headline Carrey has since labelled "completely off base".

"RadarOnline is... creating a feud that didn't exist. Robin may have expressed insecurity about me and my rise to success but I have never had anything but the greatest respect for him and his genius," Carrey told Gossip Cop.

"He was also always respectful to me in person. He called me 'Maestro' and I called him 'Billy the Kid'. Let's get it straight: there's no feud if one side isn't aware of it."

Carrey also took to Twitter after making the comment, posting a painting he'd made of Williams - a man he labelled "the fastest gun in the West".

Williams, who starred in a number of much-loved films such as Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs Doubtfire, died by suicide in August 2014.
