How Jim Carrey Went From Being Homeless To Millionaire

Jim Carrey is one of the most famous comedians in the entertainment industry, known for his hialrious acting skills that have earned him many awards and accolades in his lifetime. But despite the stardom he enjoys today, Carrey’s journey towards success wasn’t an easy one. He wasn’t one of those  privileged actors to walk into the entertainment without facing some struggles.

Carrey grew up in a lower middle class family, and at one point they suffered from homeless and spent time in a caravan. At 15, he gave up his education to earn money to feed his family. Carrey didn’t take rejection as failure, but he refused to take it to heart.

The Bruce Almighty star practiced in front of his mother in times of economic woes when he tries to cheer her up. Poverty didn’t hold him for a long time when he went to different movie auditions. His audience mocked him the first time he tried performing at ‘Yuk Yuk’s comedy club.

With outstanding performances in movies like ‘Me, Myself & Irene’, ‘Liar Liar’, ‘Dumb and Dumber’, ‘The Mask’, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’, he dominated the comedy niche with his acting talent. Carrey transitioned from the persona of a joker to one of the most sought after actors in the world with a net worth of over $160 million. Rumour has it that Carrey wants to retire, but he is still here with us.
