James Eugene (“Jim”) Carrey is a prominent Canadian-American actor who has been a Hollywood mainstay for the past three decades. Originally born in Ontario, Canada, Carrey first gained acting recognition for his role in the TV series “In Living Color.” Later in the mid-1990s, Carrey played a leading role in a long sequence of noteworthy films: “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” (1994), “Dumb and Dumber” (1994), “The Mask” (1994), “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls” (1995), “Batman Forever” (1995), “Liar Liar” (1997), and “The Truman Show” (1998). Carrey won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his performances in both “The Truman Show” and “Man on the Moon” (1999). Some of Carrey’s notable 2000s-era roles include those in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (2000), “Me, Myself & Irene” (2000), “Bruce Almighty” (2003), and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (2004). Carrey has never been nominated for an Academy Award.
Much of Carrey’s acting appeal has traditionally come his goofy, lighthearted, comedic demeanor. For an entire generation of millennials, Carrey’s role as The Riddler in “Batman Forever” and his roles in the “Ace Ventura” films defined him as an iconic acting goofball. But Carrey has also had notable roles in more serious films, such as “The Truman Show.”
Carrey remains a dual citizen of the U.S. and Canada, and he has suffered from depression. He has been married twice, although he no longer is married to anyone. Carrey has publicly questioned the efficacy of vaccination, believing that it can sometimes cause autism. He is a public political leftist, and has gotten in hot water for some of his own graphic political cartoons about President Donald Trump and his administration that he has tweeted since Trump assumed the presidency. Carrey’s bloody political cartoon “artwork” have included graphic depictions of Trump and former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, among others.
