Mike Myers and Dana Carvey's relationship was apparently anything but excellent for years.

In an interview on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday, Carvey opened up about the rift that existed between the two "Saturday Night Live" alums and "Wayne's World" co-stars over the fictional character Dr. Evil.

For years, he felt angry toward Myers for allegedly stealing Dr. Evil to use in the "Austin Powers" movies. Carvey claimed that he was the first "SNL" cast member to do an impression of executive producer Lorne Michaels. Myers, he said, took that and ran with it for Dr. Evil.

"The pinky thing was a made-up thing," Carvey said of the impression. "Lorne doesn't do that, but somehow it fit. The pinky thing, I did do."

Myers told The Hollywood Reporter in 2017 that Dr. Evil was based partially on Michaels, but also on another actor.

"The Dr. Evil voice is a little bit Lorne Michaels, there are no two ways about it, but there is a lot more Donald Pleasence in there than Lorne. Lorne has a pinky thing, but he doesn't do it anymore," Myers said then.

Carvey admitted he's never confronted Myers about Dr. Evil.

"I talked about it to the therapist," he said. "There are a lot of moments in my life I wish I was more directly straightforward."

He added, "I've basically let it go."

And it seems the relationship between the two is better, since they appeared together on stage at this year's Oscars.

Carvey also hasn't told Myers he forgives him. "I haven't done that. I would like to do that on national radio," he joked.
