Jim Carrey (born 17.1.1962) Jim Carrey is a Canadian-American actor. Although Carrey started out playing largely comic roles, his career later progressed to taking roles in dramatic films such as Man on the Moon.
Childhood: Jim Carrey was born in Newmarket and raised in Ontario. He is the son of Maria and Mark. His mother was a housewife and his father was an accountant as well as a musician.
Carrey has previously remarked that if his acting career had not been successful, he would probably still be residing in Hamilton, Ontario.
Fledging Career: Carrey started in out in comedy by doing stand-up routines at Yuk Yuk's club in Toronto. At the age of 19, Carrey was already a headline act at the club and was managed by Leatrice Spevack.
Eventually, Carrey moved to Los Angeles and began working at the Comedy Store. Rodney Dangerfield discovered Carrey there and invited him to open his tour dates. Carrey also auditioned for a slot on Saturday Night Live but was unsuccessful at the time. Ironically, Carrey was chosen to host the show in 1996, once he had established himself by other means.
Jim Carrey's film debut was in Rubberface, in 1983, though at the time, the film was known as Introducing. Janet. A few years later, he landed a few small roles, in films such as Peggy Sue Got Married and Earth Girls Are Easy.
Breakthrough: Jim Carrey's mainstream breakthrough role was the lead in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, released in 1994. Although the film has been a commercial success, most film critics hated it and Carrey was nominated for Worst New Star at the 1995 Golden Raspberry Awards. That same year, Carrey appeared in The Mask and Dumb and Dumber. Both of these films were hugely successful and Carrey's reputation as a talented off-the-wall comic began to blossom.
Carrey's next film, The Cable Guy, confirmed his status as one of Hollywood's big players; the film reportedly earned him more than $20 million. At the time, it was unheard of for comedy actors to earn such a fee for a film.
The Cable Guy was swiftly followed up by Liar, Liar, which was seen as a return to his usual comic style.
In 1998, Carrey seized the opportunity to avoid being typecast as the goofy, rubber-faced guy, and took the lead role in The Truman Show. The gamble paid off and the film was nominated for three Oscars, though none were for Carrey himself.
The next year, Jim was cast as Andy Kaufman in the biopic Man On the Moon. He won a Best Actor Golden Globe Award for his stunning portrayal of Kaufman and many were surprised when Carrey was, again, not nominated for an Academy Award.
In 2000, Carrey starred in Me, Myself and Irene, which was directed by the Farrelly Brothers (who were responsible for Dumb and Dumber). The film, which also starred Renee Zellweger, was a huge commercial success. Continuing in his run of successful films, Jim Carrey took the lead role in Bruce Almighty, in which he plays a man that is temporarily granted the powers of God.
Carrey's performance in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind again left critics baffled when he failed to be nominated for an Oscar, though his co-star Kate Winslet did receive a nomination for her role.
2004 saw Carrey playing the role of Count Olaf in the film adaptation of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.
Continuing his trend for playing more series roles, Carrey then reunited with Joel Schumacher to star in the psychological thriller, The Number 23.
Personal Life: Jim Carrey's first marriage was to Melissa Womer, a waitress at the Comedy Store. They have a daughter, Jane Erin Carrey (b. 1987). After separating from Womer in 1994, he dated and married Lauren Holly, his co-star on Dumb and Dumber. Their marriage lasted under a year. Carrey has also been romantically linked with Renée Zellweger, the model Annie Bing, musician Courtney Love (his co-star in Man On The Moon) and actress Jenny McCarthy.
White was officially still married to cameraman Mark Burton when she died, though they had long been estranged and were about to begin divorce proceedings.
Cathriona White, the on-off girlfriend of Jim Carrey who passed away last week, was apparently married to another man at the time of her death, according to a new report.
A Medical Examiner’s official told The Hollywood Reporter on Monday evening (October 5th) that the 28 year old, who is believed to have taken her own life through an overdose of prescription drugs, was married to Mark Burton, a cameraman who she met in Los Angeles when they were working on an online comedy series.
Jim Carrey's ex-girlfriend was reportedly married at the time of her death
The actor’s former girlfriend Cathriona White was found dead on September 28th, following a suspected suicide.
The Church of Scientology has responded to claims the religion could have played a role in the suspected suicide of Jim Carrey’s former girlfriend Cathriona White. The 30 year old was said to be involved in the church since around 2010, but had recently partaken in a number of ‘purification’ regimes.
Jim Carrey’s former girlfriend Cathriona White was found dead on September 28th.
In an article by journalist Tony Ortega, it was claimed that White was a Scientologist who ‘took classes at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre, and was currently working on her “objectives” in the “Survival Rundown.”’
The 28 year old make-up artist was reportedly discovered at her L.A. apartment, just days after she had split with Carrey for a second time.
Cathriona White, the ex-girlfriend of Hollywood actor Jim Carrey, has been found dead at her home in Los Angeles at the age of 28. Reports are emerging that the beauty therapist and make-up artist, who broke up with Carrey for a second time just a matter of days ago, took her own life on Monday night (September 28th).
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that they believed White’s death was caused by an overdose of prescription drugs. Two of her friends discovered her body the previous night, with a bottle next to her, when they visited her apartment to check if she was okay.

Jim Carrey was rocking his beard - which is looking incerasingly bushier - as he arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York for the last episode of 'The Late Show with David Letterman'. He was also sporting a T-shirt with the slogan 'Spank You'; a catchphrase of his from the 'Ace Ventura' movies.
'Dumb And Dumber 2' star Jim Carrey is spotted rushing out of the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, following the last ever episode of 'The Late Show With David Letterman', holding the hand of his young girlfriend Cathriona White. He hastily stows her away in an awaiting car before returning to pose for photos for the paparazzi.
Be warned: this is a movie meant only for hardcore fans of the 1994 original, and other moronic comedies in which plot, character and filmmaking coherence aren't important. If any fart joke makes you laugh, don't miss it. Everyone else probably already knows that they should avoid this movie, which is even more idiotic than it looks. Although for those forced to suffer through it, there's at least a strand of witty, absurd comedy faintly running through each scene.
After an utterly pointless 20-year practical joke, old buddies Harry and Lloyd (Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey) are once again a team, causing chaos everywhere they go due to their inability to understand pretty much anything that's happening around them. Now Harry needs a kidney transplant, just as he discovers that he fathered a child with Fraida (Kathleen Turner) nearly 23 years ago. So he and Lloyd head off to find his daughter Fanny (Rachel Melvin). She has been raised by a Nobel-winning scientist (Steve Tom) and his money-grabbing wife (Laurie Holden), who's plotting with the handyman (Rob Riggle) to steal his millions. All of them converge on an inventors' convention in El Paso, where Harry is mistaken as a genius, Lloyd falls in love with the wrong woman and everything climaxes in a vortex of mistaken identity and wacky slapstick.
While absolutely everything about this film is painfully stupid, filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly have learned from making solid comedies (like There's Something About Mary and Stuck on You), and the script has an underlying wit to it that hints at a much better movie screaming to get out. But the Farrellys simply leave everything as mindless as possible, using a strangely clunky directing style that feels cheap and underplanned. While there's a steady stream of amusing throwaway gags, the plot and characters never develop into anything engaging, mainly because both Carrey and Daniels are encouraged to overplay every moment so badly that we begin to wonder how anyone could think this was even vaguely funny.

'Dumb & Dumber To' has beaten 'Big Hero 6' at the box-office, though it will surrender that position to 'The Hunger Games' this weekend.
Dumb & Dumber To, the sequel to Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels' classic comedy movie, has posted $38.1 million on its opening weekend at the box-office. The movie edged out the critically acclaimed Disney animation Big Hero 6, which took $36 million for its second weekend.
Dumb & Dumber To took over $38 million at the box-office
Christopher Nolan's visual epic Interstellar had to settle for third place on the back of criticism of its sound. Some viewers have complained that sections of dialogue are difficult to hear - as was the case in The Dark Knight Rises - though the director told the Hollywood Reporter that was intentional.

They're here, they're weird, they're... not quite as funny.
You knew it was coming, I knew it was coming, but we were NOT prepared. Dumb and Dumber To is in cinemas this weekend. Naturally, the first instinct of most critics was to RIP IT TO SHREDS. With just 27% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, the question of the day seems to be: “Why, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, WHY?”
It's just not the same, guys.
So what exactly is wrong with it? To quote Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers, “Time can be cruel, especially to sequels.” According to Travers – as well as a host of other reviewers, gags have an expiration date and the ones in D&D are way past theirs. But it’s not like the sequel is completely irredeemable – it just falls far short of the original. “. This isn’t some cynical piece of garbage like Another 48 Hrs. Carrey and Daniels are in there working hard and almost getting their tricky rhythms back. On paper, the premise sounds more than serviceable,” David Edelstein writes for Vulture.

The critics didn't like it, but it seems audiences were willing to give ‘Dumb And Dumber To’ a chance.
It might not be clever, but Dumb and Dumber To looks like it could end up being a pretty big movie, after taking $14.2 million at the box office on its opening Friday. The comedy sequel is now predicted to earn between $30 and 35 million in the US over the following two days, just less than its $40 million budget.
Harry and Lloyd are back in Dumb and Dumber To
Starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as the dimwitted Harry and Lloyd, the sequel comes 20 years after the original movie. Back in 1994 Dumb and Dumber had managed $16 million in its opening weekend, going on to gross more than $247 million worldwide.
Dumb & Dumber To should take a solid $30 million at the box-office - though the critics are not impressed.
We get the feeling this Dumb & Dumber sequel could have been a lot cleverer - a lot slicker than this. The return of Harry and Lloyd probably represents a considerable payday for Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, though the classic original has a legion of quote-loving fans and you can't help but think they deserved a little more.
Twenty years since their first adventure, Lloyd and Harry go on a road trip to find Harry's newly discovered daughter who was given up for adoption.
