You have probably heard that the childhoodof this popular comedian was not so rosy. Jim Eugene Carrey was born on January 17,1962 in the Canadian city of Newmarket. He became the fourth and the youngestchild in the family of a housewife and accountant. His mother, Kathleen, wasa failed singer, and his father, Percy, was a self-taught saxophonist who had to giveup his musical dreams to support his family. The family was poor. Kathleen was oftensick and was addicted to pain medication. Her mental state made life more complicated:her hypochondria, combined with neurosis, led to the fact that Kathleen was considered crazy.Jim's mother often talked about how she would die soon. This placed in the soul of the boy a greatfear that his parents might suddenly pass away..
“I remember being seven years oldand my mother at the dinner table saying things like, 'My brain is deteriorating atan incredible rate!' or 'My angina's acting up; I could go at any time!'”…”Things likethat would just shake me to the core.” That’s why the little boy took all his timeto make his mother laugh, so that it would become a little easier for her – and that washow his first comical performances appeared. The future actor grew up closed and lonely,therefore creativity became an outlet for him: he painted, composed poetry and made funny faces.In an interview, Carrey admitted that the mirror was his only friend.”Well, I spent most of my time in my room staring at a mirror. I neverknew I was supposed to socialize,”.
Later he realized that he could bring smiles notonly to his family, but also to classmates and teachers at school. The love of grimacing was sostrong that the boy was allowed to make for his class a 15-minute performance every day.Jim began recording skits on camera, and even ventured to send 80 of his funny face photosto the popular comedy show Carol Barnet. At that time, Carrey was only 11 years old. But thefirst disappointment awaited him – he received neither an invitation, nor even an answer.The challenges for his family were just beginning. When Jim was 12, his father lost hisjob and they lost their home. Therefore, the Carrey family had to travel around the countryand look for any opportunities to earn money. So, having found a temporary shelter in thesuburbs of Toronto, Carrey Sr. went to work as.
A security guard, and his children after school,in the evenings, also worked as security guards and cleaners. Jim became insecure. He began toget angry at the whole world. Antidepressants and humor came to the rescue, which helpedto throw out internal aggression. At the age of 14, Jim got into a “bad company”and carried a bat with him everywhere. “I was angry,” – he remembered. “My fatherwas hurting, so I blamed the world.” At the age of 15, another disappointmentawaited the comedian. And this time it was about the stage: His father brought himto the local Yuk-Yuk’s club, where the young man was given the opportunity to speak to thepublic. The family needed additional income. Percy saw the ability of his son, so he suggestedJim use the humorists talent to earn some money..
An attempt to become a stand-up comedianfailed miserably – Jim left the stage booed. And this was the last straw for the young man: hestopped performing and withdrew into himself. Despite all the hardships, Jimremembers his parents with warmth. She was very sick in a lot ofways. She was lovely, too…she was always there for me, she wasalways there in the house,” – he said about his mother. And he even perceivedhealth problems as part of their lives, ending his memories of his mother with theconclusion: in a sense, we’re all abandoned. The comedian’s relationship with his fatherwas a little different: Jim admired him and wanted to be the same as Percy. He said hewas an incredible person: “My dad was the guy.
Who could just stand in the middle of a room andeverybody would be wrapped around his finger.” Both his parents and his three siblingssupported Carrey in his comedic endeavors. In one of the interviews, he admitted thatthey considered him a special child. “I was always from another planet but one thatthey enjoyed and encouraged. They’d all be like, ‘Yeah, drag Jim out here.'”The rough patch for the Carrey’s ended when Percy got a job at a steel mill in the portcity of Hamilton, Ontario. The family settled in the nearby town of Burlington, where Jim livedfor another 8 years. There he graduated from Aldershot High School and even formed the “Spoons”musical band, playing in “new wave” style. When Jim turned 16, he decided thathe had had enough of his studies..
By this point, marks and relationships at schoolhad completely deteriorated. His father cried, but didn’t forbid him anything, although later CarreyJr. said that sometimes he really wanted this. After graduating from school, Jim went to workat the same steel mill. He later admitted that if he hadn’t had a career in show business, heprobably would have worked at the same factory and thought that this was “the best job in theworld.” But it was the support of his father, who took him to all the clubs in Toronto, thathelped him achieve more and become who he is. Carrey said the experience taughthim to look at failures differently. As his father's story showed, it's alwayspossible to fail at something that seems safe. After all, it's much better to fall down doingwhat you love to do and truly want to do..
LOCAL SUCCESS In 1979, Jim decided to try his hand again on thesame stage, at the Yuk-Yuk’s Club. This time the audience took his performance well. Since thattime, Jim began cooperation with the manager – Litras Spivak (прим.пер.: не нашла оригиналимени, так что перевод по транскрипции) , who took the guy under his protectionand made him a real local star. People from all over the neighborhoodcame to Jim's performances. The comedian quickly moved from open mic to paidperformances. Having conquered Toronto, the young artist moved to Los Angeles, where hewas just as readily accepted on local stages. And it was here, on this stage, that Jim wasnoticed by another eminent comedian Rodney.
Dangerfield and offered to act as his openingact during the tour. Of course, Jim agreed. But the collaboration didn’t last long: at the endof the tour, Dangerfield settled in Los Angeles, and Jim decided to take a crack at Hollywood.So the young man began to work in the club “The Comedy Store” and attended allavailable auditions at the same time. Among them there was an attempt topass the audition for the program “Saturday Night Live” channel NBC season1980-81, but it failed. In addition, Joel Schumacher arranged for him to audition forthe “D.C CAB” movie, but nothing came of it. In his performances, Carrey mostly parodiedcelebrities. He enjoyed success with the public, and in 1984, People magazine named himone of the best young American parodists..
After the experience with Rodney, Jim decidedto do something unusual for that time: he didn’t try to imitate hispredecessors, but
on the contrary: he discarded all the knowledgeand experience that he saw. And just let himself be who he actually was.There was a notable case when the twenty-year-old actor went on the stage of the club completelynaked, except for the sock worn on his penis. “Jim’s one of those people whocomedians talk about like he’s in a different business than the rest of us”- his friend Judd Apatow talked about him. It cannot be said that all of Jim'sappearances on stage were successful. In an interview, he spoke about an incidentduring a performance at The Comedy Store:.
The audience didn’t like what they saw on stage somuch that they began to throw chairs at the actor. They only calmed down when Jim announcedthat he was leaving the stage. “Then I crawled through the audience on myhands and knees, popped up behind the piano and started banging on the keys, singing, “I hateyou all, you gave me cancer.” …”And then I got in the car and I cried all the way home.”In 1982, Jim began to conquer television: he appeared in the stand-up show “AnEvening at the Improv”, and in 1983 he starred in the “All-Night” entertainment show.From this period, the comedian had new dream: not just to entertain people onstage, but from TV screens as well. Gradually, dreams began to come true,though not immediately successful. In 1981,.
Carrey landed the lead role of a young comedian in“Rubberface!, which became for him, in some way, an autobiographical film. The tape tells aboutthe merry fellow Tony, who temporarily works as a dishwasher in a nightclub and dreams of becominga stand-up show star in the club where he works. As you probably guessed, Tony was played by Jim.In 1983, a comedy musical with the participation of a young actor, “Copper Mountain”, wasreleased. Both films were low-budget and received extremely low ratings in the end. OnIMDb, “Copper Mountain” is rated 2 out of 10. In 1984, the artist was invited to thechildren's animated sitcom “The Duck Factory”. From that moment on, Jim had afeeling that his career was going up. He even invited his parents to Los Angeles.However, the program closed after 3 months.
And his relatives had to be sent home. Butduring its existence the show managed to give Jim a lot of useful contacts andattract the attention of directors. In 1984, another story withhis participation was released. It was “Finders Keepers” by Richard Lester. Thefilm was an adaptation of Charles Dennis' novel “The next-to-last train ride”. There Jim gota small role as an empty-headed teenager named Lane Biddlecoff. The film receivedmixed reviews. The average viewer didn’t really understand the picture. Ithas just 2 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics warmly received the movie. James Monacoreviewed the film in his book, The Movie Guide, writing “a crazy, quirky comedy from directorLester that starts slowly and warms up to provide.
Some funny moments. Finders Keepers benefits fromthe well-judged performances of its energetic cast, with Wayne in particularly good form. Intypical Lester fashion, the movie is so frantic that viewers have no time to rest their eyes”In 1985, a comedy “Once Bitten” with elements of horror films was released. It was about thedifficult vampire life in modern realities. The role of the teenage virgin Mark, played by Carrey,gave a boost to his acting career and became the first step to celebrity and recognition.But the closure of the Duck Factory wrecked Jim. There began a rough patchin his career, he was forced to send his relatives back. And fell into depression.In 1986, the actor received the episodic role of Walter Goetz in the film “Peggy SueGot Married”, directed by Francis Coppola..
Despite the difficulties of filming – 20-hourdays, 6 days a week, conflict and problems with Nicolas Cage – the film received good reviewsafter the release. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film received 8 out of 10 from film critics, andgrossed over $41 million at a cost of around $7. It was Coppola's box office success.In 1987, the film got 2 Golden Globe Nominations for Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musicaland Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical: KathleenTurner. And 3 Academy Award Nominations. Soon the actor had the opportunity to take partin the musical melodrama “Earth Girls Are Easy” by Julian Temple. There Jim got the role of an alienWhiplock with the skin color of the Chinese flag. Carrey's colleagues on the set were Geena Davis,Julie Brown, Jeff Goldblum and Damon Wayans..
The film was originally scheduled forrelease in 1986, but funding problems, finding distributors, and Temple's meticulousattention to detail delayed the release. As a result, it was releasedonly in 1989 and didn’t pay off, earning a little more than a third ofthe amount that was spent on production. Film critics also didn’t appreciatethe final result. For example, Leonard Maltin called it an “infectiously goofymusical” and went on to cite some “good laughs and an endearing performance by Davis.”In 1987, Jim Carrey married Melissa Womer, a waitress from The Comedy Store. They metright in that club, where Jim periodically performed with his concerts. After dating fortwo years, the couple decided to tie the knot..
Melissa once told Rolling Stone thatit was an “absolutely perfect day” and that she and Jim “were crying like idiots”at the prospect of being together for life. By the time of their wedding, Womer waspregnant with their daughter, Jane Carrey, who was born on September 6, 1987. And thefirst period of their marriage was not easy: Melissa “worked two jobs” and “Jim wasmaking $25 a night performing stand-up.” Despite the fact that the comedian's stagenumber was very peculiar: he imitated a cockroach and stuffed himself inside a children's pianowhile another comedian was performing on stage. The public was dismayed. But Melissafirmly believed in her husband's talent, she knew one day he would become a legend.The same year, their daughter, Jane Erin.
Carrey was born. Jim sometimes hadbouts of uncontrollable aggression, the couple quarreled all the time. Inaddition, the higher Jim's career went, the worse his relationship with Melissa became.After the death of the actor's parents in the nineties (his mother passed away in 1991 anddad – in 1994), he was crippled by depression, and his wife's attempts to help wereunsuccessful. Antidepressants also gave little relief. The only thing thatcould help Jim was a healthy lifestyle. The path to fame was also not easy: beforethe first real success in Hollywood, he worked for it for 9 years, andonly at 28 things finally got better. In 1991, the comedy “High Strung” by RogerNygard was released. There Jim got the unusual.
Role of Death, who moonlighted as a driver andoffered to take the main character to his goal. There were rumors that Jim accepted this tinyrole only because of his friendship with Steve Oedekerk, who played this most importantrole of children's writer Thane Furrows. Their union as screenwriter and actorcontinued in such films as “Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls” and “Bruce Almighty”.Despite the fact that the film was shot in just 13 days and was not particularlypopular at the box office, it pleased with the director's approach to creating anatmosphere of urgency and visual tension. Despite positive reviews and winning awards,the producers failed to secure theatrical or home-video distribution. According to RogerNygard, “I learned the film industry is like.
Selling shoes-they all want brand names, and wedidn’t have a brand name. Steve Oedekerk is quite well known as a stand-up comic, but that didn'tmatter to exhibitors. They wanted film names.” 1992 gave the world another movie with Jim.It was “Doing time on Maple Drive” by Ken Olin. It was the actor's first dramaticrole after a series of comedic characters. He played an “imperfect” son Tim, whogrew up in a supposedly ideal family. Later, in an interview, director Ken Olinsaid that if he knew about Jim's comed
ic past, he probably never would have cast him as Tim. Buteverything worked out as it should. Jim flawlessly portrayed the alcoholic Tim and gave the world theopportunity to see him in a different way, to look at his dramatic talent, which later was able tobe seen in all its glory in his other works..
At the same time, Carrey starred in thecomedy television series “In Living Color”, which aired on Fox channel in 1990-1994.Thanks to the non-standard sketch show, Jim became loved by the audience in such animage that played into his hands for a long time: a lot of antics, reincarnations, and farfrom gentle humor. One of the most popular was the image of security inspector BillBurns and female bodybuilder Vera DeMilo. In addition, in 1991, his own projectwas released. It was the show “Jim Carrey unnatural act”, which he dedicatedto his mother, who died shortly before. Another interesting fact indicatesthe purposefulness of the actor: And if by this moment it was not a realisticamount for the actor, then soon everything changed.
Dramatically. Either Jim had a presentiment,or faith in his own strength helped him, but…CAREER RISE But already in 1993, Jim got a rolethat radically changed his life. Who has already guessed what role I'm talkingabout? Pause and write in the comments. Well, He began filming “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”,a low-budget film directed by Tom Shadyak. The future hit went through a difficultpath before being released to the screens: no one wanted to sponsor the script, none ofthe eminent comedians wanted to take part there. Therefore, Jim himself became a screenwriter: hecame up with the image of Ventura, including his famous hairstyle and tried to improvise duringfilming. In addition, he invited his favorite.
Musical band “Cannibal Corpse” to participatein the filming. The set was shared with Jim by Courteney Cox, Sean Young and Dan Marino.Carrey said of his approach: “I knew this movie was going to either besomething that people really went for, or it was going to ruin me completely. From the beginningof my involvement, I said that the character had to be rock 'n' roll. He had to be the 007 of petdetectives. I wanted to be unstoppably ridiculous, and they let me go wild.”Jim's goal was simple, but at the same time unusual – to make fun of themain character. “My plan was not to join Hollywood, it was to destroy it,” – he said.And a few days before release, Carrey’s manager invited him and broke the news: two of the mostinfluential film critics – Siskel and Ebert,.
Strongly criticized the filmafter a preliminary review. But Jim's plan worked: the picture came out on thescreens and made a real “Boom effect”. His hero became a pop icon and entered the hundred immortalcharacters according to the Empire magazine, and this role brought Jim real fortune and worldfame. The actor was bombarded with offers. The film brought a big final box office ofmore than 100 million dollars at an expense of 15 million – and the well-deservedMTV Movie Awards presented to Carrey. The Los Angeles Times reported, “Audiences areresponding enthusiastically to Carrey's frenzied antics… [The film] is especiallya hit with the 10- to 20-year-old age group it was originally targeted for.Box-office grosses indicate that many fans.
Are going back to see the film again.”Surprisingly, film critics called Carrey the worst rising star and awarded him the “GoldenRaspberry” for the role of an eccentric detective. “…Carrey plays like he's been put in a dynamo,and the fee is paid for the calories that he spent. He's a hyperactive weirdo who makesweird faces and twists his speech.” – Roger Ebert said about him.No less popular were two more works by Jim this year.Following “Ventura” came “The Mask” directed by Charles Russell, wherethe actor got the main role of a modest, unfortunate bank clerk Stanley Ipkus, who, thanksto a magic mask, turned into an omnipotent evil. Carrey's partner was Cameron Diaz, for whom thisrole was a debut and launched a further career..
Later it became known that due to the fact thatCarrey's previous film was crushed by critics, creators didn’t want to take him for themain role. When the director suggested bringing in Carrey, the New Line Cinemathought he was “out of his mind”. By the way, The Mask was originally conceivedas a horror and was based on the rather bloody Dark Horse comic book written by John Arcudi.However, when Russell decided to hire Jim Carrey, he decided to turn this story into acomedy, which indirectly indicates how the actor was perceived in Hollywood.Jim brilliantly coped with the dual role, and it was there that thefeatures of his talent appeared. I’m talking about a thorough command of facialexpressions and body, flexibility and plasticity,.
And the plausibility of images.According to the original idea, the huge teeth of the Mask were to be used onlyfor silent scenes. However, Jim showed a knack and learned to talk with these “overgrown teeth”,which gave additional eccentricity to his hero. Carrey associated his hero with his father,Percy. And the flamboyant costume worn by his character The Mask was inspired by a costumeonce made by his mother, Kathleen, for Jim's first attempt at stand-up comedy.In an interview, he recalled: “My character in ‘The Mask’ is talking aboutme. When I put on my mask, I can do anything, be anything. We all wear a mask and whenone guy takes his mask off, suddenly everyone’s mask just looks like a mask.”And even taking into account the fact that the.
Film has a number of shortcomings: problematicdialogues, not fully developed characters and sometimes offensive stereotypes, harsh filmcritics couldn’t help but appreciate the “Mask”, which has become a cult film.Especially for Jim's career. But at the same time, the film turned out tobe very unusual. It all adds up to something that’s part musical romantic comedy, partcomic book crime flick and special effects showcase. There’s juvenile humor and nodsto Tex Avery, literal eye-popping visuals, swing music and “Cuban Pete,” a subplot aboutcrooks making their play to take over a city, and a very smart Jack Russell terrier.Russell recalled that when he showed the script to Jim, he said, “My God, it was like itwas written for me,” the role was so fitting..
The film grossed $350 million and receivednominations for many prestigious awards: MTV Movie Awards, BAFTA, Golden Globe(for Carrey) and even an Oscar. And Carrey received a fee of 450 thousand dollars,which seemed unthinkable before. For Jim, the nomination for the Golden Globe was thefirst serious recognition from film critics. The next film that continued Jim's successwas the famous film by the Farrelly brothers “Dumb and Dumber”. The actor got the role ofa young limousine driver Lloyd Christmas. Not to say that the picture was distinguished bythe sublimity of dramatic thought. There were flat “below the belt” jokes, eccentric adventuresof the main characters and Сarrey's energy. To make Lloyd Christmas look funnieron screen, Jim removed a filling from.
Two of his front teeth. Jim also scoredthe film's final scene. And it worked. The film was well receivedby critics and audiences alike. And Carrey received $7 million and hisfirst MTV Award for Best Comedy Performance. However, he didn’t copewith the role of husband. Constant quarrels, lack of money, and then -the actor's tour schedules, finally undermined the relationship between Jim and Melissa. Therewas another reason: they say that the actor’s romance with actress Lauren Holly stirred the potafter the filming of the “Dumb and Dumber.” In the ninth year, the marriage broke up. Jim himselfbecame the initiator: according to Melissa, the day before they celebrated their 6thwedding anniversary, Jim rented a hall for.
Two and sang a serenade to her. Then he wentto shootings in Florida and never returned. He told his wife about the breakup by phone.Jim didn’t deny his guilt: “It’s hard to live with me,” – he once
admitted. Peopleclose to the family confirmed his words. They say that the actor is a great guyon the first date, but at the same time, Jim “desperately needs to be with someone, andthen just as desperately needs to be alone.” My first marriage failed because wecouldn't have a normal, quiet life. It is very difficult to film, to create, toexperience all this craziness every day, and then just return home. After emotional overload,it is very difficult for me to calm down. Divorce was not easy. There was a conflictbetween the former spouses on financial grounds..
Melissa claimed that Jim tried to fake the dateof their divorce so that the ex-wife would not receive part of the royalties for The Mask.“He says (we) split June 15 (1993), which oddly enough just happens to be the dayhe signed on for $7 million for ‘The Mask,”’ Carrey nevertheless paid his wifecompensation and promised to pay extra $10,000 each month for their child support.According to Melissa, Jim showed complete disregard for their little girl and called heronly once a week during the filming of The Mask. In addition, she argued that the $10,000 thatKerry was obliged to pay was not enough for their daughter to lead a decent life. In itscontent, the ex-wife of the actor included, among other things, bodyguards,riding lessons and a luxury car..
“It’s a very tired Hollywood cliche – but it wasuppermost in his mind to be a star instead of having an intact family. We knew the pitfalls,but he didn’t keep his end of our bargain. Melissa moved to New York and remainedalone for a long time. And Jim had a rather public romance with Lauren Holly.In 1995, another film was released where Carrey played the role of a bad guy – “BatmanForever” directed by Joel Schumacher. The image of Riddler became another successfulimage in Jim's piggy bank, just look: he seems to be copied from him. But later,Jim told that the role was not easy for him: The actor's partners on the set were suchstars as Val Kilmer, Tommy Lee Jones, Nicole Kidman and Drew Barrymore.The film was a follow-up to 1992's Batman Returns,.
But the film's tone was changed from Burton'sbleak delivery to a family thriller variant with an exuberant amount of color and scenery.That was where Jim's talent came in handy. Unfortunately, the shooting was overshadowed bythe conflict between Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones: Tommy literally hated Jim and told himthat right during the conversation. “And he went to hug me and he said,'I hate you. I really don't like you.' …'I cannot sanction your buffoonery.'”“I was the star and that was the problem,” – he said. And this was not far from realityby that time: after all, the actor very quickly rose to the level of a star and was thecenter of attention in any room he entered. Despite this, Jim always stated in variousinterviews that he had a lot of respect for.
Lee Jones as an actor. It’s possible that thereason for the disagreement was ordinary envy: “Dumb and dumber” where Carrey took part came outsimultaneously with the work of Lee Jones “Cobb”, which failed at the box office.The Batman was met with mixed reviews from audiences, but did well at the box office with$336 million and was the second highest-grossing film in 1995. It received Oscar nominations forBest Cinematography, Best Sound and Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing. Jim was nominated for anMTV Movie Award for Best On-Screen Villain. The series of victories was continued by thesequel “Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls”, which grossed twice as much as thefirst film and a number of awards: the actor received the Kid’sChoice Awards as “favorite actor”,.
Two MTV Movie Awards at once in the categories”Best Actor” and “Best Comedy Role”. However, on the set of this film, things werenot so rosy. They say that Carrey didn’t want to act in any sequel at all, therefore, when hewas persuaded, he created awkwardness on the set and slowed down the process in every possible way.Since then, for almost twenty years, Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls has been the only sequelto the film where Carrey starred a second time. Carrey ruined this statistic only in2014 with the movie Dumb and Dumber 2. 1996 gave viewers another comedy filmwith Carrey's participation – “The Cable Guy” directed by Ben Stiller.The actorplayed in tandem with Matthew Broderick. At the time of release, it was believed that thepicture would bury the careers of both actors:.
The beloved comedy joke actor got a ratherunusual gloomy role – the cable guy Chip, who abruptly turned from a charming weird guyinto a maniac who pursued the main character. The image turned out to be too lively,close and at the same time – frightening. The film itself swings from thriller tocomedy, and sometimes to romantic drama. By the way, Jim had the right to vote on makingedits to the script. So, during one of these discussions in a bar, Carrey came up with the ideafor the Midnight Express parody that appeared in the movie, simply writing, “T*ts on glass,” on abar napkin. During a scene in the Medieval Times, Jim Carrey improvised by taking MatthewBroderick's chicken skin and impersonating Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs.If you look at Matthew's reaction, you can see.
That his laughter and surprise were genuine.The Cable Guy didn’t get huge popularity, but brought Jim $ 20 million and a number of awards:”Kids Choice Awards” in the category “favorite actor”, “MTV Movie Award” in the categories “bestactor” and “best screen villain”. And also – a nomination for the “MTV Movie Award” for the bestfight – in a scene with Matthew Broderick. In the same year, Carrey took part in the programSaturday Night Live. Here the actor shot humorous sketches and parodies of popular films andcelebrities, and also created musical parodies. In the show, Jim was able to show his artistryin all his glory: he sang, danced disco, pretended to be a tourist, played the role of afitness trainer and even improvised ballet steps. The Roxbury Guys sketch, in which hestarred with Will Ferrell and Chris Catten,.
Gained great fame, which would later be madeinto the film A night at the Roxbury. A year after the divorce, Carreywas again trying to build a family. Relations with Lauren Holly developedrapidly and already in 1996 the couple decided to legalize their relationship.The actress denied her involvement in Jim's breakup with his first wife:”They keep calling me a home wrecker,”…”I feel for Melissa, but theywere completely apart when Jim and I met.” Jim's divorce from his first wife createdso much noise that the paparazzi pursued the lovers all the time: and instead of a chicwedding, Lauren got a modest registration. Their relationship lasted only9 months. An attempt to save the.
Marriage was unsuccessful. There were severalreasons why feelings subsided so quickly. In one of the interviews, Jim admitted that hecould be too quick-tempered and during a quarrel he could throw various objects at walls. Anotherreason was Holly's love for noisy parties, which the actor didn’t appreciate.In an interview, Lauren claimed that the reason for their breakup was theobsession of the paparazzi. Jim's rise in popularity didn't end there. In1997, the cult comedy with him in the title role Liar Liar by Tom Shediak was released. This timecan be called the peak of his career. For this film, the actor turned down the role of Dr. Evilin Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. The story follows a successful lawyerwho mysteriously cannot lie anymore..
And this feature has two sides: destroyinghis career, it saves his family. By the way, the role of lawyer Fletcher Reedwas originally offered to Robin Williams, but in the end they settled on Carrey. Andthey made the right decision – do you agree? Jim Carrey later revealed that constantly beingexpected to give increasingly manic performances during the film's shoot eventually took itstoll on him. He was so dedicated to his work that in the famous bathroom scene,we don'
;t hear an overdub of sound – Jim actually banged his head on thebathroom, the floor and the urinals. In one of the interviews, he confessed“It was this constant suppression of angst, completely freaking out all the time,” …“I would go home with total exhaustion.”.
There is another interesting detail. Even thosewho watched the cult comedy many times didn’t immediately notice that Jim played not one,but two characters in the film. In addition to being the main character, Carrey also madea brief appearance as Fire Marshall Bill, who can be seen in the background witha walkie-talkie in one of the scenes. Liar Liar was a huge box office success, earningover $300 million on a budget of $45 millions. The reviews also pleased the performers, with anaverage rating of 8 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes. Even Roger Ebert, who was critical of allof Jim's previous work, praised the film: “I'm gradually developing a suspicion or perhapsit's a fear that Jim Carrey is growing in me” But by this moment, Carrey understood that hewas cramped in the image of a cheerful wimp..
He began to dream of a bright dramatic image thatcould reveal his talents, his soul and potential. And the next role became the first stage ofchange in the career and life of Jim Carrey. Changes that led to a series of tragicevents in the life of an actor. Why did the famous comedian begin togradually disappear from movie screens?
