Who Is Jane Carrey, Jim Carrey’s Daughter? American Idol Season 11 Contestant Background Info

Jane Carrey sure gave 'em something to talk about during the Season 11 San Diego. Jim Carrey's daughter took the stage in front of American Idol judges to sing Bonnie Raitt's classic song, "Something to Talk About", and soon the Internet was abuzz with chatter about the sweet-faced 24-year-old single mom.

Jane Carrey, who has the same wide smile as her pops, was born in 1987. Her mom, Melissa Womer, is an actress and producer. Jim and Melissa were married in 1987 and divorced in 1995. Melissa's most notable role was opposite Reese Witherspoon in her debut role in Man on the Moon.

Jane has a son with her ex-husband, Blood Money singer Alex Santana, who she divorced in May 2011, according to The Huffington Post. In her Facebook bio, Jane says she gets her playful spirit from her father. "I kind of grew up in a family of carnies," she says. "I definitely think I inherited that trait."

Unfortunately, Jane was cut during Round 1 of Hollywood Week.
