Jim Carrey Net Worth

Born on the 17th of January 1962 in the Toronto suburb of Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, to Kathleen (née Oram), a homemaker, and Percy Carrey, a musician and accountant, James “Jim” Eugene Carrey is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, producer, author, and artist known for his role as the Batman villain the Riddler in the Joel Schumacher-directed superhero film Batman Forever.
He was raised a Roman Catholic and has three older siblings, John, Patricia, and Rita. He discovered his talent early in life by making faces in front of the mirror and doing impressions.
At age ten, Jim took a bold step and wrote a letter to Carol Burnett of the Carol Burnett Show pointing out that he was already a master of impressions and should be considered for a role on the show; he was overjoyed when he received a form letter reply.
He attended Blessed Trinity Catholic Elementary School in North York, Toronto before the family moved to Burlington, Ontario where they spent eight years.
In 1977, James “Jim” Carrey took the first step to a full comedy career with the help of his father who drove him to downtown Toronto to perform at the newly-opened Yuk Yuk Comedy Club and his mother who chose the attire -a polyester leisure suit- for the stage performance which was described as a “bad Rich Little” by the club owner.
His career, however, failed to build on that due to his family’s financial struggles. Which ultimately improved when they moved to Jackson’s Point.
In 1979 came his first paid gig; a 20-minute performance at the Hay Loft Club on Highway 48 in Scarborough. He was paid 20 Canadian Dollars on the night.
Determined not to rest on that, Jim went back to the scene of his first ever performance -the Yuk Yuk Comedy Club and went from open mics night to regular paid shows and building his reputation in the process.
Jim built a fanbase in Toronto over the years that followed and made a decision to join Hollywood in 1983 where he performed regularly at The Comedy Store without forgetting his goal of getting on The Tonight Show which happened briefly in November of the same year.
Jim appeared in different productions which include but not limited to Finders Keeper, Once Bitten, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy before his rise to fame in 1994 when he played a lead role in the movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective -a movie that grossed $72million in the United States and Canada.
The success of the movie led to more opportunities including portraying the Batman villain the Riddler in the Joel Schumacher-directed superhero film Batman Forever, The Mask -a movie that earned him his first Golden Gobe nomination, Dumb and Dumber and The Cable Guy which made him the first actor to be paid $20million.
In 2004, James “Jim” Carrey was inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame.
Jim has been married twice -the first of which happened on the 28th of March 1987 to former actress and Comedy Store waitress Melissa Womer and produced a daughter, Jane Erin Carrey.
They divorced in 1995, and on 23 September 1996, Carrey married his Dumb and Dumber co-star Lauren Holly; the marriage lasted less than a year.
From 1999 to 2000, Carrey was engaged to his Me, Myself and Irene co-star Renée Zellweger, and was in a relationship with January Jones in 2002. Carrey met model and actress Jenny McCarthy in 2005 and made their relationship public in June 2006 before it ended in April 2010,
Carrey met Cathriona White in 2012,, a makeup artist from County Tipperary, Ireland, and they dated between 2012 and 28 September 2015 when White was found dead from a prescription drug overdose; a case which was termed as suicide by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner.
