Jim Carrey –The life of your beloved comedy star has been a little more twisted than you’d imagine. And he’s got more talent than any of us could be wholly aware of.
We have all enjoyed movies like ‘eternal sunshine of the spotless mind’ and ‘The Truman Show’ because of Jim Carrey’s mind-numbing performance. You remember how true to life and equally bizarre watching these movies feels, right?
Carrey’s movies take you through crazy scenarios and make it seem surreal in a way you won’t experience elsewhere.
Here are some facts about the extraordinarily genius Jim Carrey-
He dropped out of High School
Jim Carrey dropped out of high school at the age of 16. He was known for his entertainment even at school. So much so that his teacher would let him perform to entertain the class after the lecture ended – if he did not disturb the class earlier on.
Carrey is an extrovert
Jim is a Truman extrovert (pun intended). He has been well known to make light of situations, being cheerful in general.
Wherever he goes, Jim spreads happiness in one form or the other, making everyone comfortable and happy.
Jim is dealing with depression
The man behind many of the best comic roles is depressed.
Perhaps, the saddest people want to spread happiness more than the rest after all.
How does he cope? He has been open about taking anti-depressants. At this point though, he does not consume drugs in any form, not even coffee.
Carrey holds dual citizenship
Jim holds citizenship for both USA and Canada. Since Trump being elected, he has chosen to stay in his home country. But he is still vocal about his opinions.
Jim Carrey was offered the role of Dr Who
Jim was left clueless when he was offered the role because he knew nothing of the show. It would have been a sight to behold, seeing him in the avatar of the Doctor who saves dimensions travelling in his phone booth.
He wanted to act at age 10
Jim Carrey sent a resume to Carol Burnett at age 10. He wanted to showcase his amazing impressionism skills and acting. Sadly, he did not get the job.
The first actor to be paid $20 Million
Carrey became the highest-paid actor in the industry when he bagged $20 Million for his movie, The Cable Guy.
The effort Jim Carrey puts into his work is well worth the $20 Mill price.
He usually gets paid the same per movie at this point. He sure as h*ck deserves it.
