Jim Carrey  ‘fairly serious’ about  retiring from acting

After Bruce Wills, it is actor Jim Carrey who is “fairly serious” about quitting acting. The actor, who will be seen in Sonic the Hedgehog 2 this year, has said that the film will mark his last on-screen appearance. 

Jim Carrey is best known for his roles in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Dumb and Dumber, The Truman Show, and Ace Ventura, among others. 

Jim Carrey has announced that he will be retiring from acting after his appearance in the upcoming film Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

“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,” Carrey, 60, said during a recent interview with “Access Hollywood.”

“I really like my quiet life and I really like putting paint on canvas and I really love my spiritual life and 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.”

In between, the actor appeared in the indie films “The Bad Batch” and “Dark Crimes.” Carrey’s recent roles also include Showtime’s comedy series “Kidding,” which ran for 20 episodes across two seasons before being canceled. 

The comedian also guested on “Saturday Night Live” as Joe Biden for six episodes in 2020. 

Fans of Carrey are used to the actor taking extended acting breaks. The release of “Sonic the Hedgehog” in 2020 marked Carrey’s first major role in a studio movie since the 2014 sequel “Dumb and Dumber To.” 

“Well, I’m retiring. Yeah, probably. I’m being fairly serious,” Carrey said.
