Legendary comedian Jim Carrey says he’s done enough and had enough of acting.
The 60-year-old stand-up comic-turned-Hollywood icon first told “Access Hollywood” about his decision to take a break from the spotlight Thursday night.
“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,” Carrey admitted during an interview for his latest movie, “Sonic the Hedgehog 2.”
Per US Weekly:
After noting that he is “probably” retiring, the Canada native explained, “It depends, 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.”
His response showed exasperation with Hollywood’s narcissism and praised Rock’s restraint.
As Insider’s Kirsten Acuna reported at the time:
When King floated the idea that anyone else would’ve been escorted off the stage by security or “maybe even arrested,” Carrey said, “He should have been.”
“You do not have the right to walk up onstage and smack somebody in the face because they said words,” the “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” actor added.
According to a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department, Rock declined to file a police report against Smith over the incident.
