Jim Carrey had already established himself as a popular stand-up comedian in Canada, when he caught the eye of Rodney Dangerfield in the late 70s. After opening for Mr. Dangerfield on tour, he moved to Las Vegas, and then California. All the while, he continued to build a following for his incredible impressions and wacky sense of humor. In the early 80s, the television and film worlds came calling. After appearing in a series of low-budget films, and starring on the short-lived series, "The Duck Factory", he began to gain higher profile roles in such films as "Earth Girls Are Easy", "Once Bitten", and "Peggy Sue Got Married". In the spring of 1990, he began appearing on the series, "In Living Color". The sketch comedy show would introduce him to an even wider audience, and bring a new level of fame. In 1994, he parlayed this television popularity into the lead role in the massive hit film, "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective". For the next ten years, he would dominate comedic film, appearing in a string of popular projects, including "The Mask", "Dumb and Dumber", "Liar Liar", and "Bruce Almighty", as well as a number of films that blurred the line between comedy and drama, including, "The Truman Show", "Man on the Moon", and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". Of late, he has gone back and forth between film and television work, including a guest-starring role on "The Office", and he recently made headlines when he decided to walk away from the sequel to his 1994 hit, "Dumb and Dumber". Along with walking away from "Dumb and Dumber To", as the film was to be called, he is also walking away from his very large Malibu mansion.
Jim Carrey's house in Malibu is on the market for $13.95 million. It is 2,800 square feet and contains five bedrooms and five and half bathrooms. The property has a great deal of outdoor space, and also sports massive windows to let in the California sunshine. Jim Carrey's house also has a rooftop deck, complete with a hot tub, an ample deck with walls that can be added or taken away depending upon the weather, a balcony attached to the master bedroom, two more decks, and stunning ocean views. Whether the move signals a change in direction for the successful comic in his professional life remains to be seen. For a fan of his comedic work, however, the chance to purchase Jim Carrey's house, might be an opportunity that is too good to pass up.
