Top 11 Jim Carrey’s Red Carpet Dates Finally Explained!
Jim Carrey has been a familiar face in Hollywood for decades, which means that red carpets are just a part of doing business for him. While he’s occasionally shown up on his own, he’s just as likely to have an equally intriguing lady by his side.
Carrey went mainstream in 1990 when he joined the cast of the sketch comedy show In Living Color. It took another four years for him to become a full-blown A-Lister when, in 1994, he starred in three smash hits: Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber. By this time, he’d already separated from his first wife Melissa. She accompanied him to a few red carpet events prior to his big breakout, although photos of the pair from that time are hard to come by. The two met when Jim was a struggling stand-up comic, and Melissa was a waitress at the Comedy Store. They married in March 1987 and had a baby girl named Jane Erin six months later.
The Carreys officially divorced in 1995 after separating in 1993, supposedly due to the effect that burgeoning fame and fortune had on the actor. Melissa talked with Rolling Stone the year they divorced, revealing that she had told her husband,
“You must come home and put your feet back on the ground and take your garbage out like everyone else, or I can’t be married to you.”
Instead of changing his ways, he called her bluff, and with that, their wedded bliss was over. Watch the video for All Of Jim Carrey’s Red Carpet Dates Finally Explained.
