‘I’ve Done Enough,’ Jim Carrey says of his retirement.

In a recent interview, Jim Carrey stated that he is “fairly serious” about retiring from acting.

While discussing his new film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, with Access Hollywood, the actor stated that he has “done enough.”

When asked about recent comments made about him by Dolly Parton, the Ace Ventura actor revealed his retirement plans. In a Parton biopic, the country music legend stated that she would like Carrey to play her former music partner Porter Wagoner.

Carrey was unaware of Parton’s remarks. “Well, that’s lovely,” he said, “but I’m retiring.”

When asked about the seriousness of those remarks, the actor responded that he’s no stranger to cracking a joke or two. “I’m being fairly serious, yeah,” he admitted to the publication.

What could entice Carrey to come out of retirement? “If the angels bring some sort of script written in gold ink that says to me that it’s going to be important for people to see, I might continue down the road,” he said of potential future acting projects.

Currently painting and creating art, Carrey explained that he enjoys his “quiet” and uneventful life.

“I like my quiet life, I like putting paint on canvas, I like 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,” he explained. “I’ve had enough. “I am sufficient.”

In addition to discussing the film for which he is doing press, The Mask actor spoke about his late friend Bob Saget. Carrey confirmed that he was attending the Full House actor’s memorial service.

The memorial was described as “a very lovely night” by Carrey. “I don’t understand why everything has to become a Netflix special. That strikes me as strange.”

According to Deadline, producer Mike Binder recently stated that the taped Bob Saget memorial celebration had been sold to Netflix for an upcoming special.

Following Saget’s death, Carrey paid tribute to his friend on Twitter. “Beautiful Bob Saget died today at the age of 65,” the tweet says. “He had a huge heart and a wonderfully warped comic mind. He brought joy to the world and lived his life for the sake of goodness.”

We can only hope that golden typescript lands on Carrey’s desk soon. Until then, we’ll remember Carrey’s remarkable career, including roles in comedies and dramas.
