Who is Jim Carrey?

Jim Carrey is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, writer, producer, and artist, who is best known for his energetic comedic performances.

The chances are that if you have landed on this page from an internet search, you already know all about Jim Carrey and his career, but let’s touch on the basics points first before delving a little bit deeper.

Jim Carrey was born on 17 January 1962 in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. He is currently 58 years old.

Over the last few years, Jim has become known for his spiritual beliefs and he is an advocate for the ‘law of attraction’.

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in 1997, Jim revealed that he often used visualisation techniques to get work while he was a struggling actor.

So, it is clear that Jim Carrey is known as one of Hollywood’s top actors in recent years. But what about his lifestyle away from the silver screen?

Is Jim Carrey Vegan?

It’s time to take a look at the main question in this article – is Jim Carrey Vegan or not?

The simple answer to this question right now is, we’re not sure. In terms of his nutrition, it is fairly clear that he has not followed a plant-based diet, or at least he has not confirmed it in public.

The most recent time Jim spoke about his diet in public was back in 2013, when he revealed that he was undergoing a ‘detox’ diet on his official Twitter account.

During that time, he clearly was not following a plant-based diet, as he revealed that he was eating eggs, meat and fish, as well as honey.

On March 5 2013, Jim tweeted: “Clarity! Contentment! Youthfulness! Longevity!This diet, though tough at first, gives me that! I eat eggs meat fish n veggies cooked in olive oil fruits nuts water tea with honey or stevia gluten free crckrs n almond butter 4 snack.

“End of day 14. Diet is kicking in. Feeling relaxed content and even blissful, like i just got up from a good nap. Protein veg legumes rice fruit nuts water contain all we need 2b healthy happy n sharp minded.”

Of course, the thing to bear in mind here is that these quotes were taken from 2013, and Jim may well have changed his diet and lifestyle since then.

Despite rumours to the contrary, there is no official confirmation that Jim Carrey follows a vegan diet or lifestyle.

Jim has often spoken out against the cattle industry and climate change, but as far as we know, he has not spoken about cutting out animal products or following a plant-based diet.

So, to wrap this part up: No, Jim Carrey is not vegan. Despite rumours to the contrary, he has not spoken about following a vegan lifestyle or plant-based diet in public in recent years. The last time he spoke about his diet, he was not following a plant-based nutrition plan.

What Is Jim Carrey’s Diet?

As we have mentioned above, there is not much known about Jim Carrey’s diet and nutrition.

One of the few times he spoke publicly about what he eats was through his series of tweets in 2013, as quoted above, when he revealed that he was enjoying eating eggs, meat, fish and vegetables, as well as fruit, nuts water and tea.

Jim has clearly opted to keep his diet and nutrition plan behind closed doors for the most part.

Does Jim Carrey Have Any Other Lifestyle Secrets?

As we mentioned above, Jim is an advocate of the ‘law of attraction’, and he has revealed how visualisation techniques helped him when he was a struggling actor.

Jim has also become somewhat renowned for his philosophy when it comes to life in general in recent years, with lots of his quotes circulating widely on social media, for example.

Here are some of his most popular quotes from over the years:

• “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer.”

• “As far as I can tell, it’s just about letting the universe know what you want and then working toward it while letting go of how it comes to pass.”

• “I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I go, ’Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.”

• “So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach so we never dare to ask the universe for it. I’m the proof that you can ask the universe for it”

• “Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything, or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting.”

Anything Else I Need To Know?

As we mentioned above, Jim has been somewhat private when it comes to his diet and lifestyle in his private life.

Instead of talking regularly about his life away from acting, Jim often chooses to follow a more private path away from the media spotlight.

This article has been updated with the latest information we could find regarding Jim’s lifestyle and diet, based on what he has said in previous interviews and on social media.
