Jim Carrey Net Worth- Jim Carrey is hosting Saturday Night Live for the third time. The $150 million Hollywood standup comedian, actor and a producer has all the luck in his hands, and perhaps no one could ever imagine how the multi-million dollar actor once lived.

Jim Carrey or James Eugene in real life is a Canadian-American actor, born and raised in Ontario, Canada. He has always been known for his laughter and wit and for his vibrant comedy that's full of energy. And for this, no one would ever think that he lived a life before that's full of tribulation and loneliness.

Jim Carrey's net worth is too far from where he was in the past. His early years in Canada showed what Abraham Lincoln says, "I laugh because I must not cry." He grew up with a housewife mother and a musician father who struggled through life after losing his job. Money became obsolete and has always been an issue to his family.

At 15, he left schooling and started working as a janitor in order to support his family. Their family lost their home and began living in a van. With a little luck, he was able to return to school, but it didn't last very long when he had to quit study again. His mother had serious illness and that time, he had to balance his time caring for her while working full time.

It was during those years that spun a twist on his fate when he debuted in a standup comedy job. With timing not yet ripe for him, he put a rest for his aspirations to be a great comedian. It was when Rodney Dangerfield gave him a chance to do comedy shows on tour that made a 360 degree turn to his success.

From then on, Jim Carrey's net worth zoomed when he started his comedy career in Hollywood TV shows and movies. Following successful decades, Carrey starred in various movie and television hits, from "Rubberface" to "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and "Dumb and Dumber."

Today, Jim Carrey's net worth could not be taken less. The boy from Canada who struggled through his teens is now a $150 million worth Hollywood actor.
