"I've tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks," she said on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show earlier this week.

The 39-year-old bombshell, who is currently dating Chicago Bears player Brian Urlacher, admitted to still having feelings for the box office star.

"I haven't [reached out directly]... I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other... But I still love him," she continued. ""I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up."

Adding, "I tell [Evan] that someday you'll cross paths, meet again...[but] it's hard. He's been in therapy. It's a process, he's working on it."

On Wednesday, Jim released a statement to Access Hollywood about Jenny's comments.

"I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan's well-being," the actor said in the statement. "It's unfortunate that Evan's privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always."
