In a new Access Hollywood interview, Jim Carrey says that he’s “pretty serious” about giving up acting because he’s “done enough.”
Carrey was on the show to promote Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and he was asked how he felt about what Dolly Parton had said about him playing her former music partner, Porter Wagoner, in a movie about her life.
Carrey was surprised by the news. “Well, that’s nice,” he said, “but I’m leaving my job.” Carrey said, “I’m pretty serious, yeah,” when asked if he was serious. He said that he might not retire after all. “If the angels bring me a script written in gold ink that tells me it’s really important for people to see, I might keep going, but for now I’m taking a break.”
Carrey, who spends a lot of time painting and making art, said, “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’m good enough. “
Carrey also talked about his late friend Bob Saget and the recent memorial party for the beloved Full House star full of famous people. Carrey said, “It was a very nice night.” “I don’t understand why everything needs to be a Netflix special. I find that a little odd. “
Recently, producer Mike Binder said that Netflix had bought the taped memorial celebration for an upcoming special.
