The biggest movie-maker of all time: Jim Carrey

When Jim Carreys first started shooting the big-budget blockbuster movies that would make him a star, he was a struggling actor who had just moved to Los Angeles from a small town in England.

“I was a very shy kid,” he recalls.

“It was all about me and how I was supposed to be.

I was not that outgoing.

It was just all about the acting.”

When he was 15, Carrey was cast as the lead in a sci-fi thriller called The Time Traveller, a film that he says he wanted to make but that his family were not supportive of.

“They said, ‘We’re not into that sort of stuff’,” he says.

“The thing about making movies is you can’t really be a big star without being a star yourself.”

A career in film It took Carrey six years to make The Time Traveler, but he was able to make a small but significant impact on his own career.

In 1986, he starred in the cult film The Day the Earth Stood Still.

It is a film which he says helped shape his life.

“In The Day The Earth Stampede, I played a young, unemployed man who is trapped in the middle of a forest, watching people die,” he says, “but I’m not a person that goes out of my way to make movies.

I like to watch them, and it’s the one thing I like about life that I didn’t get to experience that much as a child.”

Carrey says that The Day, which has a similar feel to his previous work, is “the first film I ever made that I thought I could be a part of, in a big way”.

It was an important step for Carrey.

“When I first started, I didn-I didn’t think that I would be able to play this character for 40 years,” he explains.

“But it’s been so great.”

For the past 40 years, Carreys career has been dominated by big-name roles in big-money blockbusters.

In 2015, he made his film debut as The Doctor in the blockbuster blockbuster Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

In 2018, he reprises his role as a young Harry Potter actor, playing Harry Potter himself in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The Doctor has also been an enduring favourite, with his portrayal of the dark wizard being recognised with multiple Academy Awards, including Best Supporting Actor in 2017.

“What I’ve learned as a kid, which is what I always tried to learn, is that you can never be famous without being famous in your home,” he tells New Scientist.

“You can’t be famous anywhere in the world without being seen by your family.”

Carreys latest film is The Master, in which he plays the villainous master of the Black Order.

“If you have a black man who does not have an evil soul in him, it’s just not possible for you to become the Master of the Universe,” he laughs.

“That’s what I’ve always been a believer in.

I’m going to go with my gut.”

“It’s a bit of a paradox,” he continues.

“To be a good actor you need to be a person who loves your job and you need people to love you.

If you are just a good person, then it’s a matter of life and death.

But if you’re an evil person, there’s nothing you can do.”

He adds: “It takes a special kind of person to be able take the black man as a servant and to put him in charge of the world.

That’s something that I’m very much aware of.

I’ve never tried to change myself as an actor.

I think I’m an actor that loves to have fun and have fun with the characters that I play.”

It’s the same message he’s tried to spread since he first appeared onscreen in a role as Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

“There’s so much in life that can be frustrating, and that’s why I’ve had the greatest success and why I’m still doing what I’m doing,” he adds.

“My parents would always say to me, ‘You’re too young to play the Doctor, you’ve got to take the Black Suit.

You’ve got better things to do than that’.” How does he stay motivated to perform?

“I don’t really have an answer for that,” he replies.

“This job is the only thing that makes me happy.”

In fact, Carrys success in Hollywood has come down to his belief in himself and his ability to overcome obstacles.

“We are a little bit like people in that we have these challenges,” he states.
