Early Life and Career
Actor and comedian James Eugene Carrey was born on January 17, 1962, in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. Carrey got his start with a spot doing stand-up at a Toronto comedy club when he was just 15 years old. By 1979 he had left the factory job as a janitor he had taken in 1978 to help support his family and was making his living as the opening act for successful comics Buddy Hackett and Rodney Dangerfield.
Jim Carrey has a romantic personality, but his love is more impersonal as he tends to be focused on her dreams instead. When not in harmony with his true nature, Jim can fall to moodiness, or become aloof, and withdrawn. He can also become timid, uncertain, and ungrateful, putting the blame for his troubles on others or the world. He is often disappointed by the realities of life, her own shortcomings, and those of others, and is relentlessly driven to improve upon it all - striving for greater accomplishments. This is Jim's life-lesson - to accept the natural limitations of the world and its habitants in order to make it possible for him to enjoy life more fully.
