Jim Carrey is one of the funniest actors in the world. He can bend his face so skillfully, that very often film directors don’t use any computer graphics; Jim can look natural without any equipment. During the years in movie business he saved $150 million net worth and got two Golden Globes. His salary per “The Cable Guy” was $20 million (according to Celebritynetworth) and for “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls” he got $15 million. But in spite of incredible success and enormous wealth, Jim Carrey’s fate is not so cloudless as it seems at first sight.

He was born in a family of 2 musicians. Both of his parents were successful in their career and the family lived from hand to mouth. But Jim didn’t notice any difficulties as he had spent long hours in front of the mirror, depicting famous actors and politicians.

He tried to monetize his talent at the age of 15, when he performed as a stand-up comedian in the nearest night club. But he was not accepted with a public and fell in long term depression because of it.

He finally started his career in Los Angeles in early 80-s. He waited for his big break for almost a decade, when finally he got the role, which made him a star. In 1993 he portrayed the leading character in “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”.

Jim Carrey earned multi million salary per roles in comedies. But he dreamed about depicting dramatic heroes. That’s why he was incredibly happy, when he got the role of Joel Barish in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. This movie is a real gem in Jim Carrey’s film list.

“People” magazine called Jim Carrey one of the most talented parodists in the world.
