Famous Failure – Jim Carrey

James Eugene Carrey is famously known as Jim Carrey:-

Born on 17th January 1962 in Ontario, Canada, he is one of the most popular comedians, actors, writers, producers, and entrepreneurs, before becoming the most comic person of our time, the early years of his life were trapped within failures.

“You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”

He spent his childhood in poverty, circumstances also didn’t favour his cause to build up his ambitions into reason. Carrey was selected to be the opening act for Goddo at the Roxy Theatre in Barrie, but got something called discouragement, his passion prevented him from suppressing his dreams.

In the struggling period of his life, he got a chance to debut at a comedy club Yuk Yuk’s. A perfectionist in observational comedy, physical comedy, surreal humour, character comedy, satires, and slapstick.

Carrey was first accentuated in 1990 after performing a regular role in the American sketch comedy “In Living Color”. He had his first lead in motion pictures with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective(1994), The Mask(1994), and many more. The year 2000 highlighted him more for his portrayal of the Grinch in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and for the comedy “Me, Myself and Irene”, “Dumb and Dumber To”(2014) and the list goes on.

Carrey shined as a great comic actor in dramatic roles. He later starred in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”(2004), the finest performance and the most important in Carrey’s career for which he was nominated for both the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role and another “Golden Globe Award”.

“My dad was like a stage mother. He always pushed me to do what I wanted.”

Carrey got married twice but both marriages didn’t go long. He stayed in woe and was on Prozac(an antidepressant), failures and many other impediments were there in his journey but he dealt with them pragmatically, being an unstoppable guy towards his dreams, he kept on going and his work turned into an unmitigated triumph.
