Jim Carrey might look like he just got into a tumble, but he is only in costume for his latest film, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. The pretty girl by his side is daughter Jane Carrey who has recently dominated headlines for trying out on reality tv show American Idol. At 24-years-old, Jane has been impressing audiences for as long as daddy Jim can remember and now she did the same for AI judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Randy Jackson.
I think its great that Jane is trying to make it in music by her own merit and not just for being the daughter of someone so famous!
“The last name definitely helps and hurts,” Jane said on the show. “There’s this pressure to be better because if I make it somewhere, I run the risk of people saying ‘you only got there because of [your name].’ I’m here to make my place in the world.”
Her rendition of Bonnie Raitt’s “Something to Talk About” earned her a spot on the Hollywood stage! I have a feeling she will become the sweetheart of the season with that voice.
Also on set was Jim’s co-tar Steve Carell, who stars as a famous but jaded Vegas magician who fights for relevance after breaking up with his longtime stage partner. Especially after the arrival of Steve Haines (Carrey), a “hip” street magician who starts making waves!
Check out the video below of Jane’s audition on Idol. Do you think she could possibly win the competition?
