11Lives in Los Angeles and Malibu, California.
12He 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.
13Spoofed the Players' Club TV commercials, made famous by Telly Savalas in the 1980s, on In Living Color (1990).
14Publicist is Marleah Leslie.
15The 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.
16As a kid, he was a member of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets.
17Was considered for the role of Ted Stroehmann in There's Something About Mary (1998).

19Jack Nicholson has called him the "Jack Nicholson of the next generation".

21Has 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).
22A fan of Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969).
23Is a vegetarian.
24Studies acting with legendary coach Larry Moss.
25With 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)).
26At 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".
27Is a huge fan of the cartoons Johnny Bravo (1997), SpongeBob SquarePants (1999) and Dave the Barbarian (2004).
28Nicole Kidman calls him her best male friend.
29Turned 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.
30Often 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).

32On September 13th, 2006, Carrey fired his agent of 15 years, Nick Stevens.

34Possibly 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.
35Fellow Canadian comedian Mike Myers was chosen over Carrey to play in Saturday Night Live (1975).
36He 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)).
37Before Martin Scorsese's The Aviator (2004), he spent years trying to produce and star in a film of Howard Hughes' life as Hughes himself.
38Was a straight-A student until he dropped out.
39Was originally offered the lead role in the movie The Master of Disguise (2002).
40His performance as "Ace Ventura" in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994) is ranked #97 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
41Was 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.
42He 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).
43Bought 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.
44Briefly attended Aldershot High School in Burlington, Ontario.
45Wrote letters to Tupac Shakur when Tupac was in prison to help him laugh and smile. Tupac said that Carrey was his favorite actor.

51He has said that Joel, his painfully shy, lovelorn character in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), is closer to what he's like when he's not "on," and that making the film led him to reflect on his past relationships and why they didn't work out.

53Owns his own $25-million plane.
54Has said that his least favorite movie is The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (1969).

#Quote
1So 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.
2These 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.
4My 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.
6I 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.
7It 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.
8Even 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 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.
14The 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.
15If there'd been Ritalin when I was a kid, I wouldn't be here now.
16The 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.
19I 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.
20I 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.
21I'm charming, but I dip into the Prozac now and then.
22That'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.
23Maybe 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.
24I'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.
26Until Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), no actor had considered talking through his ass.
