Ginger Gonzaga’s Ex-Boyfriend
Although Ginger has not disclosed much about her dating life, she dated actor Jim Carrey for nearly a year in the late 2010s. Jim and Ginger met sometime in 2018 on the sets of ‘Kidding.’ They quickly took to each other and began dating. Interestingly, their respective characters also date in the show. Both of them were open about their relationship in public and made several appearances together at events, premieres, and award shows such as the 2019 Golden Globes.
At the award ceremony, Jim only had good things to say about Ginger. “I feel very lucky. … She’s not only beautiful, but she’s wickedly talented and amazing and smart,” the actor-comedian said. However, due to reasons likely known only to Jim and Ginger, the pair broke up in late 2019 after dating for less than a year. Nevertheless, the two have moved on and always been very respectful towards each other after their split.
