JIM CARREY – $180 M
Jim Carrey’s journey going to the film industry is one that is similar to a rags-to-riches story. When he was 12 years old, little Jim and his parents had to live in a van while he and his sibling worked overnight shifts as janitors and security guards for a nearby factory. By the age of 15, being the natural comedian that he is, Jim Carrey gave stand-up comedy a shot. With his natural sense of humor being one of his greatest investments, Jim Carrey eventually gained popularity for his lead roles in films like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb and Dumber, to name a few. Safe to say that all his hard work finally paid off.
