But life has a way of showing you."

When he was interviewed by ScreenSlam in 2014 leading up to the release of "Dumb and Dumber To," Jim revealed that Jane had prevented him from walking away from acting on more than one occasion. "There's been a couple of times when I've said, 'I don't know if I want to do this anymore,'" Jim said. He then stated that in response to this, Jane said, "Dad, you gotta. It's what you do.You don't have it; it has you." Jane likewise has a passion for performing.

Prior to her audition, Jane detailed how her love for entertaining began early on in her life. "I've been singing for as long as I can remember," Jane said, via an archival "Idol" interview. "I was always in school plays. I'm a huge ham. I always liked to be on stage." The singer next discussed positive memories of being raised by Jim. "It was definitely fun growing up with him as a father. I mean, he's not the most extravagant celebrity, so it's been fairly normal — fairly," Jane said. She made it through to the following round after singing Bonnie Raitt's hit song, "Something to Talk About," but was sent home during the show's Hollywood round, per CBS News.

Per Discogs, Jane additionally led a band called The Jane Carrey Band, and they released an album in 2009.
