Canadian-American entertainer Jim Carrey, known for his comedy and acting, is selling his 12,700 sq ft Los Angeles home for $28.9 million as part of his retirement transition. Born in Newmarket, Ontario, in 1962, Carrey found his passion for comedy at a young age. Despite facing personal tragedies and financial challenges, he became a beloved comedic performer.
In his late teens, Carrey ventured into stand-up comedy, gaining fame for his energetic acts. He moved to Hollywood in the early ’80s, catching the eye of producers. His breakthrough came with “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” in 1994, followed by hits like “The Mask,” “Liar Liar,” and “Bruce Almighty.”
Carrey’s ability to portray quirky characters earned him acclaim, and he used his fame to support charitable causes. Despite his success, he faced struggles with depression and a challenging childhood.
Carrey announced his retirement in April 2022 to focus on painting and spiritual pursuits, putting his cherished five-bedroom mansion on sale. He hopes someone else will enjoy its enchanting ambiance as he did for over three decades.
