Jim Carrey Is ‘Probably’ Retiring From Acting: “I Have Enough. I’ve Done Enough. I Am Enough.”

He enjoys his tranquil life, doing art, and spending time with his family, according to the 60-year-old.

In a new interview with Access, Jim Carrey announced his retirement from acting. During a discussion about his current film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, the 60-year-old revealed that his decades-long Hollywood career is “definitely” coming to an end. “Fairly serious,” Carrey said when interviewer Kit Hoover asked how serious he was about putting acting behind.

“So, I’m stepping down… Probably. Yes, I’m taking myself seriously “He confessed. “It depends on whether the angels send some kind of gold-inked calligraphy stating that it’s highly vital for humans to see. I’m not sure if I’ll continue down the road, but I’m going to take a break. I enjoy my peace and quiet, and I enjoy putting paint on canvas. I genuinely enjoy my spiritual life, and I feel like… and you’ll never hear another celebrity say this as long as time exists, ‘I’ve had enough.’ Enough is enough. ‘I am enough.'”

Carrey went on to say how much he enjoys life away from the spotlight. “I love my quiet life, and I love putting paint on canvas, and I love my spiritual life, and I feel like — and this is something you’ll never hear another celebrity say as long as time exists — I have enough,” he remarked. “Enough is enough. I am sufficient.” Dolly Parton recently stated that Carrey would be perfect for the role of Porter Wagoner in her upcoming biopic. “I admire your talent,” Hoover said. “I’m hoping you’ll keep making us laugh and smile.” “No matter what happens, I’m going to stay in the world,” Carrey stated. “We have a greater impact on the world than we realize. To have an impact on the world, we don’t have to be multi-hyphenates.”

In the 1990s, the actor earned his debut in the series In Living Color. Following that, he starred in comedies such as Dumb and Dumber, The Mask, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective on the big screen. Bruce Almighty, The Cable Guy, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and Liar, Liar are among his other cinematic credits. He’s also had memorable performances in dramas including The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Fans are used to seeing the actor take a vacation from his work. In fact, since the 2014 sequel Dumb and Dumber To, Carrey’s involvement in Sonic the Hedgehog in 2020 will be his first major role in a studio film.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2018, he stated that he was spending more time painting. He stated at the time, “I just didn’t want to be in the business anymore.” “I didn’t like what was going on, with the corporations taking control and everything. Maybe it’s because I was drawn to a different kind of creative outlet, and I enjoyed the control of painting—not having a committee telling me what the idea should be to appeal to a four-quadrant audience or whatever.”
