About to release his next film in theaters, Jim Carrey announced that he is retiring from acting. The winner of the Golden Globes for his work in films such as “The Truman Show” (1998) and “Man on the Moon” (1999), assures that in this instance of his life his dedication is mostly on his personal peace of mind.
“Well, I’m retiring… probably. I’m serious, yes,” said the actor, in dialogue with the Access program. And it is that a declaration of these characteristics tends to activate alerts in the public, followers and fans.
“It depends on whether the angels bring some kind of script that’s written in gold ink that tells me it’s really going to be something important for people to see,” he added, about what would make him change his mind.
“I could continue down the road, but I’m taking a break. I really like my quiet life and I really love putting paint on canvas. I really love my spiritual life and I feel like… and this is something that maybe I’ll never hear another celebrity say as long as time exists: I have enough. I have done enough. I am enough,” he said.
Carrey is about to be released in theaters “sonic 2” (directed by Jeff Fowler), the second part of the franchise that adapts the story of the video game character, where he plays the Doctor Eggman.
The actor’s decision comes after going through painful moments such as the suicide of his ex-partner, Cathriona White, and legal problems that he later faced. This generated a change of habits in his routine -such as dedicating himself to painting- that he prioritizes in his present. Situations that he captured in the documentary “I Need Color” (2017).
