Jimmy Kimmel has again expressed his feelings about his late-night rival Jay Leno. Spoiler alert: Kimmel still doesn’t like the NBC ”Tonight Show” host.

In an interview with Playboy magazine, Kimmel addressed the fact that he’s slammed Leno on several occasions in recent years — most recently in a January issue of Rolling Stone when he said the NBC host “totally sold out.”

“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,” the ABC host said.

Kimmel said that he doesn’t “even like talking about” Leno, and only does so when he’s asked questions about him.

That may be, but Kimmel revealed to Playboy that he refuses to tell any joke that he can envision Leno telling.

Kimmel is much more complimentary of his childhood hero, CBS “Late Show” host David Letterman.

“Dave transcends any time slot; he is the father of comedy as we now know it,” Kimmel said. “I wonder if he knows what he means to every comedian under 50 years old. That ‘NBC Late Night with David Letterman’ show was a revelation.”
