Jim Carrey says he is probably retiring from acting

In a recent interview, Jim Carrey announced his retirement from acting after he finishes filming Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

Jim Carrey is likely to close the curtains on his career after filming wraps up for the sequel to his 2020 film, Sonic the Hedgehog.

Speaking to Access, Carrey was asked about Dolly Parton wanting him for a new movie. “Well, I’m retiring,” he responded. “Yeah, probably. I’m being fairly serious.”

But Carrey softened his claims when the interviewer asked if he was serious, explaining he could be lured out of retirement in the future. “It depends,” he said. “If the angels bring some sort of script that’s written in gold ink 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.”

“I really like my quiet life and I really like putting paint on canvas,” the actor continued. “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.”

Likely to be Carrey’s final film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is in currently in cinemas. The film has received mixed reviews so far, gathering enough success for fans to almost forget about the dreadful first Sonic design.

Guess that means the rumours about a possible third instalment of the Ace Ventura films is off the cards.
