You know him for his quirky and captivating personality that's shone in dozens of movies since the early '80s. The Canadian star made a name for himself in Hollywood, and with that comes quite a bit of romantic mingling. Jim Carrey's past relationships include two marriages, a daughter and even a grandchild.

The 58-year-old Sonic the Hedgehog star was born in Newmarket, Ontario to a family of six. He got his start in comedy clubs in Toronto but really made it big when he decided to make the move to L.A.

Carrey's very first acting role was in The All-Night Show in 1980 where he provided "Additional Voices", according to IMDb

A few years later in 1987, Who's Dated Who claims that he married producer and actress Melissa Carrey. The couple were married until 1995. IMDb notes that they both appeared in Man on the Moon together in 1999. 

In September 1987, the couple had a daughter named Jane Erin Carrey, according to Closer Weekly. The news outlet notes that she has a nine-year-old son named Jackson Riley with her now ex-husband Alex Santana.

Carrey's second wife was actress Lauren Holly. Who's Dated Who writes that they were only married for a year in 1996 after they began dating in 1994 when they starred in Dumb and Dumber together.

At the turn of the century, Carrey got engaged to Bridget Jones's Diary star Renée Zellweger, but Who's Dated Who claims that they called it off. That same year, IMDb notes that the two starred in Me, Myself & Irene together. 

The year before his previous engagement, the Ace Ventura star dated British actress Charlotte Lewis for nine months.

In 2002, Carrey dated Spinning Out star January Jones and later that year was tied to Russian dancer Anastasia Volochkova. 

Perhaps one of Carrey's most famous relationships came in 2005 when he began seeing Jenny McCarthy. The two were together until 2010. PEOPLE reported that she said the relationship ended when it was no longer fun.

From 2012 to 2015, the actor dated an Irish make-up artist named Cathriona White. She tragically died from an overdose when she was 30 years old.

The same year of her death, White's family filed a lawsuit against Carrey claiming that he provided the drugs that she overdosed on. In February 2018, Global News reported that the wrongful death lawsuit was dropped.

Carrey's most recent relationship was with 35-year-old Ginger Gonzaga who he starred opposite in his comedy series, Kidding. They dated from January to October 2019.
