Movie star Jim Carrey might be a joker, but apparently, he’s “fairly serious” about calling time on his career.
During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, the Sonic the Hedgehog 2 actor who plays Dr. Robotnik mentioned how he felt he had “done enough” and that any future projects would depend on the script.
Here’s exactly what he had to say, courtesy of Variety:
“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.
“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.”
And you can see the full exchange in the video below:
Paramount Pictures has already confirmed a third Sonic the Hedgehog movie – leaving many fans questioning Carrey’s future involvement.
With any luck, he’s already signed for three Sonic movies, and his statement in this latest interview means he’ll no longer be taking on new movie contracts.
If we hear any updates, we’ll let you know.
