“Jim Carrey Is 100% Pro Doggie Adoption”
Who is Jim Carrey? Jim Carrey is a Canadian-born actor who became a naturalized American citizen in 2004. Carrey is known for his rubbery body movements and flexible facial expressions. The two-time Golden Globe-winner rose to fame as a cast member of the Fox sketch comedy “In Living Color” (1990) but leading roles in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), Dumb & Dumber (1994) and The Mask (1994) established him as a bankable comedy actor.
Following his time on “In Living Color” (1990), Carrey appeared in roles that capitalized on his physical comedic ability, breaking out as a star with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), a film that proved to be a box-office smash. Later, his performance in Liar Liar (1997) earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor, and would mark a turning point in his career. Two films that followed, The Truman Show (1998) and his turn as Andy Kaufman in the biopic Man on the Moon (1999), each netted Carrey a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. Although Carrey maintains a foothold in the comedy world with films such as Bruce Almighty (2003) and Mr. Popper’s Penguins (2011), he’s also capable of turning in nuanced dramatic performances, as demonstrated in films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) and the drama/comedy Yes Man (2008). In 2013, he co-stars with Steve Carell in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013).
Did you know…?
When Jim Carrey got his two cute pups, he kept their names a secret. He did not want the paparazzi digging into his dogs’ personal life! Now that’s respect if you ask me!
Jim Carrey Is Pro Dog Adoption
Jim Carrey adopted a Great Dane not too long ago from the date of this article (October 2013). Carrey realizes that around 2.7 million dogs are euthanized each year in the United States simply because too many people give up their pets, and too few people adopt from shelters. Because there is limited space at shelters, staff members sometimes need to make very hard decisions to euthanize animals who have not been adopted. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them and this is exactly what Carrey did. Kudos to Carrey!
