The well known actor Jim Carrey, mostly known for his comic roles is taking a retirement from the acting career. The Sonic The Hedgehog 2 will be his last working piece which is set to premiere this year. Jim announced this not long after Bruce Willis‘s decision came of stepping away from the acting life after being diagnosed by aphasia. Jim Carrey built his fame through a 1990’s TV show In Living Color portraying a comic character on the show. Later on he played many iconic comic roles throughout his career in films like The Mask, Dumb And Dumber, Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty and A Christmas Carol. He’s most recent seen as Dr. Robotnik in Sonic The Hedgehog.
Other than his comic roles, Jim can also be seen in some crucially dramatic performances for which he won Golden Globe Awards .The Truman Show and Man on the Moon can be listed down in this category. The Guardian named him as one of the best actors never to have earned an Oscar nomination in 2009.
While being guest on Access Hollywood along with singer Dolly Parton, Jim laid out the surprising news out in front. He told the news while replying to Dolly Patron on her joke that she’d love if Jim would star in her biopic. Jim said, “Well, I’m retiring. Yeah, probably. I’m being fairly serious. 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.”
On adding further to his announcement, Jim 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 am enough.”
