This slideshow features pictures of young Jim Carrey, including baby, childhood, and high school pictures of one of the world's most famous comedy actors. Hailing from Canada, this impressionist, screenwriter and stand-up comedian first caught our attention on the hit 90s show “In Living Color.” He was raised in Ontario, Canada with three siblings and never graduated high school. His family had economic difficulties and his mother was in poor health, so he stayed home and helped take care of her. Carrey has starred in some of the biggest comedies in the movie industry, including “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Dumb and Dumber,” “The Mask” and “Liar Liar.” He has also starred in several dramas that were extremely successful, such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “The Truman Show,” for which he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. Before he became a major figure in Hollywood, Carrey began performing comedy sketches at clubs in Toronto. Enjoy these photos of Jim Carrey when he was young, and smile along with one of the biggest goofballs at all time.
