Jim Carrey is known as one of Hollywood’s funniest men. But behind the scenes, things haven’t always been so positive for the star.
Jim Carrey is one of Hollywood’s best-loved actors.
He first rose to fame in gross-out comedy movies such as Dumb & Dumber and Ace Ventura, where his seemingly elastic face and never-ending supply of energy gained much fan acclaim.
Since then, he’s shown a remarkable range.
Carrey has starred in films across a wide range of genres, including a range of excellent romcoms like Bruce Almighty.
But Carrey doesn’t shy away from more dramatic roles, either.
He gained a lot of critical praise for his role in dystopian reality television satire, The Truman Show. He also played the romantic straight-man lead in artsy classic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Alongside his acting success, Carrey has had to deal with a certain level of fame.
Particularly in the ’90s, Carrey was one of the most recognizable faces in the celebrity world. His hugely successful film roles led to a legion of loyal fans.
