Last night on American Idol, the judges came face to face with Jane Carrey, a 24-year-old mother, waitress, musician, and Hollywood hopeful. Did we mention that she’s also Jim Carrey’s daughter?!!
During the San Francisco auditions, the self-professed “ham”, who loves to be on stage, performed Bonnie Raitt’s hit single, “Something to Talk About”.
Jane also shared what it was like having the funny-man for a father.
“It was definitely fun growing up with him as a father, he’s not the most extravagant celebrity, so it was fairly normal. Fairly,” she said in her pre-audition interview.
“The last name definitely helps and hurts, I feel like there’s this pressure to maybe be better because if I make it somewhere, I run the risk of people saying, ‘Oh, you only got there because of this.'”
Adding, “I’m here to make my place in the world.”
Tell us! Did Carrey’s performance earn her a ticket to Hollywood?
