Who is Jim Carrey’s daughter Jane Erin Carrey?

Born Jane Erin Carrey on the 6th of September 1987, in Los Angeles, California USA, this 30-year-old Caucasian actress, singer-songwriter, writer and producer is, in spite of her own achievements in the world of arts, perhaps best known for being the daughter of the legendary Jim Carrey, and his now ex-wife, actress Melissa Wormer. She has been in and out of the public eye since her first appearance on a TV program in 2012.

Early Life and Education

Even though it’s regularly expected for children of the famous to be in the spotlight from their earliest years, this was not the case for Jane. Thus, her elementary/high school and her potential college degree remain unknown, as well as almost everything related to her youth, aside from the fact that her parents divorced when she was eight. Being the daughter of Jim Carrey himself, it’s likely that Jane got a taste of home schooling when it comes to stage performance, but the fact is that Jane didn’t use her parents’ glory to climb, since she actually worked as a waitress for at least six years before her big moment.

The Breakout

Jane’s debut came as a surprise to the TV audience, as no one was expecting to see Jim Carrey’s daughter on Fox’s “American Idol” in January 2012. Unsurprisingly most of the co-contestants were annoyed that Jane got the special attention when her identity was revealed during the filming of the show, which supposedly gave her an advantage over the others. The competition was broadcast in 2012, but it took place in Pasadena, California in 2011, at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, judged by Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson, but it seems that they didn’t appreciate Jane’s version of Bonnie Ratt’s “Something to Talk About” enough to let her pass, and so she never made it to round 2.

The Band

Even though she failed to impress the jury and the nation, the results of her performance didn’t discourage Jane at all, so much so that she formed her own band soon after of which she was the frontwoman, unsurprisingly calling it “The Jane Carrey Band”, and began touring the country with it. The great hits that she produced with this group are “ Oh Lover”, “Sticky Situation”, “Simple Beauty”, “Sexy Man in a Death Metal Band” and “Jim Carrey: I Needed Color” (in which Jim Carrey himself is the star), to name a few.


Even though her parents didn’t fare well in the matrimonial community, Jane married on the 14th of November 2009 to Alex Santana, the lead singer of the popular metal band entitled “Blood Money”, and their son Jackson Riley Santana was born on the 26th of February 2010. However, this event still didn’t save the marriage, and Jane divorced Santana in October 2011.


It’s public knowledge that Jenny McCarthy and Jane Carrey worked together on financing a few fundraisers for the purposes of battling autism, and the proof that these acts are purely selfless comes from the fact that they both have careers to pursue, and yet they’re focusing on benign goals at times. The main reason why this is unusual is the fact that Jenny McCarthy is the ex-girlfriend of Jane Carrey’s biological father.

Her Father’s Daughter

Even though Jane herself doesn’t have too much recognition as an actor, she will always be there to help her father. Thus, she was seen on the recent set Jim Carrey was shooting on in New York, for the movie entitled “Mr. Popper’s Penguins”.

What is Jane Erin Carrey’s Net Worth?

Have you ever wondered how high Jane Erin Carrey’s net worth is, as of early 2018? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that the current value of Jane’s total accumulated wealth career is around $2 million, greatly influenced by her achievements as a singer in the band she formed, and possibly also some of the minor stage performance jobs that might have come from the fact that she is Jim Carrey’s daughter.

Body Measurements, and Social Media

When it comes to the physical specifications of Jane Carrey, aside from the fact that her eyes are light brown like her hair, there are no digits whatsoever regarding her personal statistics.

Concerning her social media though, Jane is an actress and singer after all, and as such, she needs to maintain an active social presence. So far, she has amassed 1,600+ followers on Facebook, while her Twitter account stands at 161,000 current followers. As of yet, she doesn’t have an Instagram account, or it may not be visible to the general public.
