Jim Carrey says he is going to use his break from acting to focus on becoming “frighteningly normal”.

The 60-year-old actor, known for starring in titles such as The Truman Show, The Grinch, and Ace Ventura, announced his intention to take a break from acting last week.

In an interview with Access Hollywood (via Us Weekly), Carrey said he was “fairly serious” about stepping away from acting.

“Well, I’m returning. Yeah, probably. I’m being fairly serious.” He continued, “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,” he added. “I really like putting paint on canvas and I really love my spiritual life and I feel like – and this something you might never hear another celebrity say as long as time exists – I have enough. I’ve done enough. I am enough.”

Now, speaking with Entertainment Tonight during the premiere of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Carrey joked about the reasons behind his decision.

“I gotta get out of here before I slap someone,” he said, referencing Will Smith’s infamous Oscar’s slap. “Honestly, I feel like there’s so many things, because I’ve been so busy for so long, important things that I’ve ignored. Like, there’s 25 years of Mystery Science Theater I have to catch up on.”

“And there’s painting. I do paint. I’m gonna be putting out NFTs. I’ll announce that on Twitter soon. And that’s kinda fun for me still.”

Carrey continued on a slightly more serious note, “Other than that, I’m going to strive for un-exceptionalism. I want to be frighteningly normal. Nothing going on. Whole lotta nothing.”
