Jim Carrey is one of the most iconic comedic actors of modern cinema. While we have still continued to see him on-screen lately, he is also in the public eye with his popular self-drawn political cartoons criticizing the Trump administration. While Carrey is outspoken politically, he often stays mum on his personal life, leaving his fans to wonder if the actor is currently in a relationship. He has recently been doing a hectic round of press (creating controversy during one interview for an inappropriate remark directed at a female reporter) for the recently released Sonic the Hedgehog movie.
Amidst the press tour, fans have been clamoring for info about Carrey’s personal life. After all, Carrey is no stranger to relationships with famous girlfriends. He has previously dated multiple starlets, drawing widespread public attention each time. He famously was briefly engaged to Renee Zellweger, who recently took home the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Judy. He also dated former model, actress, radio host, and The View panelist Jenny McCarthy in the late 2000s. They split in 2010, with McCarthy subsequently marrying former New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg.
Jim additionally has been married twice. His first marriage was to Melissa Womer (with whom he has a daughter, Jane) from 1987-1995 and his second time down the aisle was a brief marriage to his Dumb and Dumber costar Lauren Holly from 1996-1997. The last time he was publicly spotted with a new flame was at a Golden Globes Party in 2019 with then girlfriend Ginger Gonzaga. They met while filming the Showtime comedy series Kidding, continuing Carey’s trend of coupling up with his costars.
The newly minted couple fizzled out quickly, however, and broke up in October of last year. Since then, all has been quiet publicly regarding Carrey’s love life. A source once described Carrey as “someone who desperately needs to be with someone, then just as desperately needs to be alone.” This paradox has foiled his relationships of the past unfortunately and has fueled speculation as to who Carrey might be dating now. This period of being single is a change from Carrey’s normal routine.
His social media does not reveal many clues- Carrey does not have an official Instagram and his Twitter feed is filled with mostly his drawings and doodles. He rarely posts a picture of himself or anyone he is with. Thus, the mystery remains if Carrey is flying solo or in tandem throughout his latest stage in life. Carrey will stay in the limelight as the second season of Kidding is currently airing on Showtime, with the first few episodes already airing.
