Jim Carrey wants to retire from acting after many years of career.
“I feel like — and this is something you might never hear another celebrity say as long as time exists — I have enough. I’ve done enough. I am enough,” he added.
Jim Carrey retiring from acting
During his interview with Kit Hoover, Carrey explained that it would take something extraordinary to reel him back in.
“It depends if the angels bring some sort of script that says to me that it’s going to be really important for people to see. I might continue down the road, but I’m taking a break,” he said.
But what is he going to do now?
“I really like my quiet life, and I really love putting paint on canvas, and I really love my spiritual life,” he shared.
However, he noted that if Parton seriously approached him about a role, he would not turn down the offer.
“I would always speak to Dolly,” he said, candidly. “Another worldly talent that is just bigger than you can imagine.”
The actor’s latest movie, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2,” hits theaters on April 8 and could be his last.
Carrey also used the opportunity to promote his upcoming NFT project, coming in April, called Magic Hour. “It’s a mix of painting and spoken word that delves into my existential musings”, he said.
The comedian’s retirement comments come days after he slammed Hollywood for applauding Will Smith after the star slapped Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars.
“Hollywood is just spineless en masse, and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we aren’t the cool club anymore.” The actor told Gayle King in an interview with CBS This Morning.
Carrey added that he would have sued Smith for $200 million if he had been in 57-year-old Rock’s shoes.
