3 Good friends with Jeff Daniels, Ewan McGregor, Steve Carell, and Steven Tyler.
4 His role of Brad Peters in the 1989 CBS television film Mike Hammer: Murder Takes All (1989) turned out to be the final murder victim. Helen Durant (Lynda Carter) was his off screen murderer. The notable other deaths in that television film were Johnny Roman (Edward Winter), Barbara Leguire (Kelly Jerles), Bundy (Royce D. Applegate), Leora van Treas (Michelle Phillips), Reggie Diaz (Lyle Alzado), John McNiece (Jessie Lawrence Ferguson), and Carl Durant (John Calvin).
5 His ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, died from a suspected drug overdose on September 28, 2015 in Los Angeles.
6 Appeared on the final episode of Late Show with David Letterman (1993), wearing a personally made shirt saying "Spank You Kindly David Letterman".
7 Is good friends with Steve Oedekerk.
8 Has played the two most well known fictional characters who hated Christmas, The Grinch and Ebenezer Scrooge.
9 In several films he has played an extraordinary character for whom television plays an vital role. In Batman Forever (1995) he played The Riddler who devises a master plan to hypnotize and absorb knowledge from the population using television. In The Cable Guy (1996) he played a cable TV technician with a lifelong unhealthy obsession with television. In The Truman Show (1998) he played a man who discovers that his entire life was a hugely successful reality TV show. In Man on the Moon (1999) he played the TV comedy star Andy Kaufman who pushed the boundaries of his medium. And in Bruce Almighty (2003) he played a TV reporter who was suddenly granted the powers of God.
10 Pictured on one of a set of five nondenominated Canadian commemorative postage stamps honoring Great Canadian Comedians, issued 29 August 2014. In addition to the main portrait, he is shown in his roles as Ace Ventura, Stanley Ipkiss in The Mask (1994), and Lloyd Christmas in Dumb & Dumber (1994).

13 According to Biography, Jim wrote himself a check for $10 million dollars in 1983, post-dated 10 years, hoping to be able to cash it by then. The episode also featured a clip from a 1999 interview where Jim stated he put the check in his father's pocket after he passed away on September 13, 1994. [October 13, 2010].
14 Became a grandfather for the 1st time at age 48 when his daughter Jane Carrey gave birth to her son Jackson Riley Santana on February 26, 2010. Child's father is singer Alex Santana.
15 Jim and his girlfriend, Jenny McCarthy, have ended their five-year romance [April 6, 2010].
16 Lives in Los Angeles and Malibu, California.
17 He had never heard of Doctor Who (1963) until being offered the role of the Eighth Doctor in Doctor Who (1996), which was the key factor into turning down the role, as he felt he would cause outrage amongst Doctor Who fans if the role wasn't played by a Doctor Who fan.
18 Spoofed the Players' Club TV commercials, made famous by Telly Savalas in the 1980s, on In Living Color (1990).
19 Publicist is Marleah Leslie.
20 The characters played by him in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), The Mask (1994) and Dumb & Dumber (1994) later all became TV cartoons, whereas his "Grinch", "Horton" and "Riddler" characters were already cartoons.
21 As a kid, he was a member of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets.
22 Was considered for the role of Ted Stroehmann in There's Something About Mary (1998).
23 As of 2009, he is only one of six performers who won a Golden Globe Award as Best Lead Actor/Actress in a Motion Picture Drama without being nominated for an Oscar for that same role (his for The Truman Show (1998)). The others are Spencer Tracy in The Actress (1953), Anthony Franciosa in Career (1959), Omar Sharif in Doctor Zhivago (1965), Shirley MacLaine for Madame Sousatzka (1988) and Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road (2008).
24 Jack Nicholson has called him the "Jack Nicholson of the next generation".
25 Played a (fictional) man who is not (yet) aware he is on television on The Truman Show (1998) and a real-life man who believed he was always on television Man on the Moon (1999).
26 Has worked with two actresses from the TV show Friends (1994): Courteney Cox in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), and Jennifer Aniston in Bruce Almighty (2003).
27 A fan of Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969).
28 Is a vegetarian.
29 Studies acting with legendary coach Larry Moss.
30 With the exception of his "Ace Ventura" character, Carrey has a reputation of not repeating the same character twice in a sequel (Batman & Robin (1997)) or prequel (Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003)).
31 At one time, Carrey was slated to star as the lead in Meet the Parents (2000) and even contributed jokes to the screenplay, such as the main character being named "Focker".
32 Is a huge fan of the cartoons Johnny Bravo (1997), SpongeBob SquarePants (1999) and Dave the Barbarian (2004).
33 Nicole Kidman calls him her best male friend.
34 Turned down the offer to induct Jerry Lawler into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2007, for he believed the people in the audience would have come to the ceremony to see him, not the legends being honored that night.
35 Often his protagonist (or antagonist) roles are associated with the color green. The Mask (1994), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), "The Riddler" in Batman Forever (1995), the alias 'Mr. Red Green' in Fun with Dick and Jane (2005). The Red Green reference in Fun With Dick and Jane might have been a nod to a Canadian comedy, The Red Green Show (1991).
36 Along with his girlfriend Jenny McCarthy, he was among the guests at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's wedding.
37 On September 13th, 2006, Carrey fired his agent of 15 years, Nick Stevens.

39 Possibly out of slapstick to his nationality, his "Dick Harper" character of Fun with Dick and Jane (2005) has been compared by fans to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
40 Fellow Canadian comedian Mike Myers was chosen over Carrey to play in Saturday Night Live (1975).
41 He has been nominated for 5 Golden Globes, but although more recognised for his comedic performances, the only two Globes he's won were for dramatic performances. (The Truman Show (1998) and Man on the Moon (1999)).
42 Before Martin Scorsese's The Aviator (2004), he spent years trying to produce and star in a film of Howard Hughes' life as Hughes himself.
43 Was a straight-A student until he dropped out.
44 Was originally offered the lead role in the movie The Master of Disguise (2002).
45 His performance as "Ace Ventura" in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) is ranked #97 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
46 Was considered for the roles of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) and Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), both of which eventually went to Johnny Depp.
47 He was originally cast as "Dr. Evil" in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), but he had to drop out of the role due to a scheduling conflict with Liar Liar (1997).
48 Bought a Harley Davidson motorcycle and got a vanity license plate for it which read "NO TAG" as a joke. This resulted in Jim receiving numerous traffic tickets in the mail that were meant for other people. As it turns out, when filling out a ticket, police officers write "no tag" in the license plate number slot on the ticket when the offending vehicle has no license plate. In some cases, this was interpreted as the actual license plate number, as it was in Jim's case, which caused the tickets to be routed to him.

58 Owns his own $25-million plane.
59 Has said that his least favorite movie is The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969).

#Quote
1 So many of us chose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn't believe that was possible for him. So, he made a conservative choice and instead he got a job as an accountant. When I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job. Our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which is that you can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.
2 These mass shootings and daily body counts are an invitation for us to become more civilized and to deal with our addiction and entitlement to violence. Not to shut our eyes and ears and scream at those with a different opinion than ours to 'fuck off and go back to Canada'.
3 [on Ireland] I love the whole culture, obviously. You have the best musicians, the best poets. Great artists come out of Ireland.
4 My focus is to forget the pain, mock the pain, reduce it.
5 (2001, on his first comedy show) My mother dressed me in a polyester suit, and I got booed off the stage, and I didn't go back for two years. But then when I went back, I was gangbusters.
6 I was always trying to make my mother laugh because she was sick or depressed or whatever. Many comics start out by trying to heal their family. That's how you get good. Your drunken grandparents leave and you turn around as a seven-year-old child and imitate them. That is how it began for me, bringing comic relief to my family. It really is comic relief, people don't just want to see it, they need it. I need it more than they do and that is why I am on this side of the camera because I am a really needy person.
7 It is as if I am starting out every time I make a film. And I swear to you I don't feel any more secure than I used to, or jaded in any way. There was a moment when I thought 'I am not sure I want to be part of this big thing that is Hollywood.' I looked at it cynically for a minute. Then I sat on my couch and realized the value of what I do. We free people from concern. It is what everyone needs in this day and age. There is nothing better and it started out that way.
8 Even if I am being over the top or crazy, I want to do something original. There is nothing that makes me happier than when someone says: 'I watched The Mask (1994) 300 times when I was a kid.' I look forward to when I am 80 and people come up to me going: 'It was you, dude.' That's an amazing feeling.
9 (1996) I dyed my hair black just before I started shooting The Cable Guy (1996) and immediately got completely in the doldrums. I couldn't lift myself out of it, because every time I looked in the mirror, I didn't like myself. It definitely put me in a weird place.
10 (1996) I'm just a freak like the rest of us. I'd say I've had an even flow of neediness through my whole life, and I got kind of clever about it early. I remember starting out imitating records in the back of the classroom, and when the teacher singled me out and tried to make me feel embarrassed by saying, 'Get up and do that in front of the whole class,' it marked the end of all normal life. I got up, did it in front of the whole class and learned that committing myself to getting a reaction was very addicting. For sure, I have an unnatural need to be noticed or liked. But I don't necessarily gear everything to an audience, going, 'What are they going to want?', I'm not afraid to become a different thing, because I believe talent finds its audience. It's just like The Beatles. They didn't stay put. They changed, made a lot of enemies, lost fans, gained new ones.
11 (1996) Money doesn't faze me at all. It goes into an account and then I basically do what I need to do with it. The money takes a little of your fear away-you know, fear of the future. This country is pretty scary if you don't build some kind of nest egg for yourself. I don't go buy Maseratis, because I've never been impressed with stuff like that at all. I'll probably end up with two houses, someplace to escape to and someplace in the city, I'm pretty basic. I understand the dynamic of people who medicate themselves with things, but it always seemed hollow to me.
12 (1996, on $20 million paydays) See, the number in the paper is one thing, but then there's 35 percent off the top for commissions, then there's taxes, so the $20 million check becomes $5.5 million. That's amazing money, but it's not $20 million. Believe me, I don't gloat about the money. People have lost fortunes that make mine look microscopic. You can never count on it for sure. People that do that are asking for trouble.
13 (1996, on choosing projects) Very rarely do I jump up and say on my own, 'I must do this!' I have a lot of people who look at material and give me their opinions. It's like the President-he doesn't make a move without his aides, which is a smart way to be if you trust the opinions of the people on your team.
14 The best possible thing you can get out of a relationship is that you're with somebody who encourages you to be the best version of yourself.
15 If there'd been Ritalin when I was a kid, I wouldn't be here now.
16 The power of the subconscious mind! With the power of the sub-conscious mind I can learn how to do anything...I could...learn how to dance, or, yodel like an Austrian.
17 [on being asked what his personal motto is] Always turn your wheel in the direction of the skid.
18 [after recording a cover of The Beatles' "I Am the Walrus"] There! I did it! I defiled a timeless work of art! For my next trick, I will paint a clown face on the Mona Lisa while using the shroud of Turin as a dropcloth.
19 I have no intention of giving up my Canadian heritage, and all those who loved and supported me. My upbringing in Canada made me the person I am. I will always be proud to be a Canadian.
20 I don't believe in this fairy tale of staying together for ever. Ten years with somebody is enough. In ten years, you can give a lot of love.
21 I'm charming, but I dip into the Prozac now and then.
22 That's the trouble with being me. At this point, nobody gives a damn what my problem is. I could literally have a tumor on the side of my head and they'd be like, 'Yeah, big deal. I'd eat a tumor every morning for the kinda money you're pulling down.
23 Maybe there is no actual place called hell. Maybe hell is just having to listen to our grandparents breathe through their noses when they're eating sandwiches.
24 I've been dubbed the man most responsible for the dumbing of America, so obviously I don't put much stock into thoughts like (the theme of the 'dumbing down' of contemporary comedy). People love to laugh, and most people can find humor in just about anything, which is great. Trying to label or categorize comedy is ridiculous. I mean, if you laugh at a fart joke, does that make you a moron? I don't think so.
25 [about his chances of winning at the 1998 Golden Globes Awards] It's insane . . . I mean, [Jack Nicholson], [Dustin Hoffman], [Samuel L. Jackson], [Kevin Kline]--I don't see how I can lose.
26 Until Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), no actor had considered talking through his ass.
27 I tend to stay up late, not because I'm partying but because it's the only time of day when I'm alone and I don't have to be on, performing.
