The Man Of A Million Faces
?The Man of a Million Faces?
Jim Carrey is a man who excels at the field of comedy and acting. The reason that he excels is that he is very down to earth, his personality personifies how a lot of teenagers act and feel today, and he is extremely popular.
James Eugene Carrey seems to be one of the most down to earth people that you will ever see on television. Whether it is on the Tonight Show or Entertainment Tonight, Jim can turn any dull moment into something comedic. When I was recently reading about him I found out that although he is a superstar he enjoys many of the same things that us ?regular people? like. For example Jim's favorite kind of food is sandwiches, chips, and a little bowl of ice cream for dessert. He really is not in to the whole glamorous celebrity thing. He enjoys the simple things in life. I also learned that Jim loves cartoons and his favorite character is Deputy Dog. Jim also wears something that a lot of men and women wear, Fruit of the Loom underwear. According to my reading they are the undergarments of choice for a lot of celebrities. Finally, and I think this is more than anyone needs to know, Jim prefers Charmin toilet paper. I do not know why anyone would really care about this but it was listed as a fact about him.
Another reason that he is so good at what he does is that he acts just like the kids that are watching his movies. After a Jim Carrey movie is released I suggest that you listen to a few conversations among teenagers. You are almost assured the latest Jim Carrey quote, and you can be sure that an impersonation is not far behind. There is just something about what he says that sticks in teenagers' minds. Something else that sets Jim apart from all the rest is his uncanny way of making faces. Sometimes you have to wonder if his jaw is dislocated. He can do things with his mouth no other human can accomplish. It is unbelievable. I think that the biggest reason that he is so well liked is his performance in ?Ace Ventura; Pet Detective?. He did something that a lot of teenagers and adults wish they could do. He talked to his bus through his ?behind?. Most employees feel like doing that at least once a week, if not more.
The last reason that he excels is the demand to have him in movies and to appear at your function, whatever it may be. For example recently he appeared on the MTV Video Music Awards. Jim has nothing to do with music, but is name alone as a headliner could have been the cause of the huge crowd. His presence in a movie can literally make or break it. He has starred in the blockbusters, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber, The Truman Show, Man on the Moon, and the upcoming How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Since 1982 Carrey has starred in 20 movies and numerous television shows. He also has won and been nominated for many awards.
So as you can see Jim Carrey is a very good actor and comedian. He is in high demand and is loved by many.
