The announced retirement of Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey, renowned for comedic and dramatic roles, has declared his retirement from acting after his appearance in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Carrey, known for iconic films like The Mask and The Truman Show, mentioned a desire for a peaceful life away from the Hollywood spotlight.

His decision follows a recent appearance where he declined a biopic role suggested by Dolly Parton, indicating he’s stepping back from acting. Despite critical acclaim, Carrey’s career lacked an Academy Award nomination.

Reflecting on his retirement, Carrey expressed contentment, saying, “I’ve done enough. I have enough.” His departure comes after the passing of his close friend, Bob Saget, whose memorial rights Netflix acquired for a documentary.
