Jim Carrey is one of the most talented and versatile actors our world has. He came in the 80s, ruled the 90s, mastered the 2000s and then reinvented himself in 2010s. Carrey is known for having the most pliable face in Hollywood and has done, what many failed to achieve and perform.

His movies in itself are a work of art, they can be comic or extremely mind blowing because there’s nothing in-between for the ‘Mask’ actor. Carrey floats in the world of extremes and has seen and been through a lot with a smile on his face. None of his contemporaries can pull off his roles in Dumb & Dumber, Ace Ventura or Me, Myself and Irene.

Jim Carrey turns 54 today and we would like to congratulate and thank him for making our film life wonderful. We have gathered a list of some of the most amazing and astonishing performances by Carrey, which everyone should witness at least once in their life.
