They say that the funniest people often tend to be the saddest. Legendary comedian Robin Williams, who was also battling depression, took his own life a little over a year ago. Like so many in the same profession, Jim Carrey too is gifted with a great talent and cursed with a depression-infusing life.

He has been known to pull off some great roles.
