Jim Carrey was born on 17th January 1962 in New Market, Ontario. His parents were Kathleen and Percy Carrey. While Kathleen was a homemaker, Percy had his profession in music and accounts.

John, Patricia and Rita are his elder siblings. His family was a Catholic and belonged to the French Canadian Origin. Carrey’s schooling was not consistent as he changed a few schools resulting into spending 3 years in grade 10.

Carrey started off his career with standup comedy and now he is well known actor. Not only has he excelled in comic roles but he has also shown his acting skills in some serious roles.

Films like The Mask, Liar Liar, Cable Guy, Me, Myself and Irene, Yes Man, Number 23 are some of his well known and critically acclaimed films. He got 3 Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in his career.
