Jim Carrey, the man who made looking like a fool cool, is still one of the most beloved comedy stars today.
He's funny, philosophical, brilliant, inspirational, and questionable, all at the same time.
How does that work, we're not sure, just like how we are not quite sure how his brain works.
Aaaaaalrighty then! Here are 15 things you've always wanted to know about the legend himself!
1. He wrote letters to Tupac Shakur when he was behind bars.
To lift Tupac's spirits, Carrey wrote letters to Tupac because he had previously said that Carrey was his favorite actor.
2. He started his comedy career in Canada.
His dad was super supportive and always drove him from Newmarket to Toronto to pursue his career in comedy. His first gig was at Yuk Yuk's Comedy Club.
3. He was forced to quit school when he was 15 to help support his family.
He took a job as a janitor to help make ends meet.
5. He mailed his resume to Carol Burnett.
When he was 10 years old, Carrey wrote a letter to The Carol Burnett Show that mentioned his talents why he'd be great on the show. Unfortunately, he got rejected.
6. He used to wear tap dancing shoes to bed.
“I had a sick mom, man. I wanted to make her feel better […] Basically, I think she laid in bed and took a lot of pain pills. And I wanted to make her feel better. And I used to go in there and do impressions of praying mantises, and weird things, and whatever. I’d bounce off the walls and throw myself down the stairs to make her feel better," Carrey said.
7. He could have been Captain Jack Sparrow.
He turned down the role because he already had a role in Bruce Almighty.
