To occupy a high position at the “Dream Factory”, he had to overcome many failures. But Kerry walked his difficult path to fame with dignity, all his problems remained in the distant past.
James Eugene Kerry was born in Newmarket on January 17, 1962. He was the fourth child in the family of a successful accountant and singer. When the children appeared in the family, the mother of the future actor abandoned the career of a performer. She had to do housework, raising children. The father became the main breadwinner of the family, and he coped well with his duties.
Jim grew up an incredibly funny boy. From an early age he knew how to make people laugh, he was engaged in parody. At school, the boy made such funny faces that his peers and teachers simply could not help laughing.
At that time, the future star was only eleven years old. Jim waited a long time for an invitation to a television program, but he was never followed.
Three years after this event, a major trouble occurred in the family of the future actor. Father, the only breadwinner in a large family, lost his job. Finding a new job in Newmarket was not easy; the Kerry family had to travel around the country in search of work. My father did not manage to get a job in his specialty, but in the vicinity of Toronto, on a farm, he was offered the position of security guard. Earnings were small, for this reason the children also began to work, performed the duties of cleaners.
CAREER IN CINEMA
Jim was 20 years old when he made his debut appearance on television. He became a member of the humorous stand-up show An Evening at the Improv. Very soon, the comedian was invited to work in the night project The Tonight Show. Kerry rejoiced at his successes, but did not stop dreaming about more. He wanted to appear on the big screen as soon as possible, to star in a full-length film, to loudly declare his talent.
A year later, the comedian came close to realizing his dream. He was invited to a major role in the films Rubber Face and Mount Kupper. However, these films were low-budget, intended only for home viewing. Nevertheless, the young actor received invaluable experience, managed to show his talent to the general public.
The following year he was offered a role in the children’s animation sitcom “Duck Factory”. A month later, the show was closed, but in the framework of this program, Jim managed to make many useful acquaintances. Famous Hollywood directors drew attention to the young man. One of them, Clint Eastwood, invited the comedian to work in his own club, where the comedian was supposed to parody the owner himself and other celebrities. The work in the club was quite suitable for the artist, until he realized that parody was a little tired of him.
Kerry won real success and world celebrity in 1993 after the release of the comedy Ace Ventura: Searching for Pets. This ambiguous film from the very beginning was haunted by some setbacks. All the famous comedians invited to work, one by one, refused to participate in the filming. Kerry accepted the offer, but set special conditions – he demanded a thorough processing of the script, the image of the protagonist.
The picture became incredibly popular, box office exceeded the cost of it, the artist was awarded the first MTV Movie Awards. But film critics reacted very harshly to the film, and the actor himself was called the worst new star, conferring him an anti-award – Golden Raspberry. The following paintings, “The Mask” and “Dumb, Dumber,” in which Kerry took part, were welcomed by critics favorably. These films have turned into world hits, and the new Hollywood comedian has become extremely popular. In the film The Mask, where the protagonist is able to turn into the god Loki, Jim’s buffoonery proved to be very appropriate. also Cameron Diaz was in this picture

Kerry played Fletcher Reed, for the sake of working on this image, he had to refuse to participate in another wonderful film – “Austin Powers: The International Mystery Man”. In the film “Liar, Liar”, viewers saw for the first time the true color of the hair of a star actor. Previously, he always had to remove hair with unbelievable shades, or put on a wig with a monstrous hairstyle. Work in this film brought the artist another MTV award, a nomination for the Golden Globe.
In his youth, the comedian had a great love for the singer Linda Ronstadt, the relationship quickly exhausted itself. At 25, he became interested in Melissa Womer, an actress and a waitress at the Comedy Store. Young people met for less than a year, then got married, they had a daughter, Jane Erin. They loved each other, but too often quarreled. After another disagreement, both came to the conclusion that it was time for them to leave. The marriage lasted eight years, according to the court, Kerry paid seven million dollars to his ex-wife.
