"I had no idea really what I was doing until maybe about a year ago, when people started telling me [that what was special about me is that] my face is… real weird," Carrey said.

Back then, Jim was known solely for his stand-up comedy routine and countless spot-on impressions.

"All my life I've really wanted to do this, so it doesn't seem like I've been in the business for a short time," said Jim, "It's all I've ever wanted to do. It's all I've ever done."
