Jim Carrey gags about I want to be awfully ordinary, 'slapping someone if I don't retire
The Comedian appeared to reference the Oscar drama of Will Smith / Chris Rock when he mocked his intention to leave the spotlight.
Jim Carrey is ready for some comfort and relaxation away from the spotlight! The Oscar-nominated actor/comedian has talked about taking a break from Hollywood during the promotion of his latest film Sonic the Hedgehog 2. "I have to get out of here before I can slap anyone," Jim said on the red carpet. He was referring to the recent Oscar Drama of Will Smith / Chris Rock.
Honestly, I think there are many things because I've been so busy for so long, the essential things I've overlooked, Jim said, showing his famous sense of humor. "Like, I have to grab the Mystery Science Theater from 25 years ago. And there's painting. I paint. I'm going out of NFTs. I'll announce it on Twitter soon. Also a kind of fun for me.
Also, I will try not to be unusual, he continued. I want to be very typical. Nothing is happening. Absolutely nothing.
The clear answer came about a week after Jim revealed that he was ready to retire in a recent interview. "I'm retiring. I'm very serious," On Thursday, March 31st, he said in a new interview with Access Hollywood. Jim warned that he would consider the scenario "important for people to see."
Depending on that - if the angels bring some script written in gold ink, which tells me that it would be essential for people to see it, I probably, he continued. I could have continued on the road, but I'm taking a break. I really love my quiet life, and I really like to paint on canvas, and I really love my spiritual life, and I think so - and that's something you haven't. And this is something you might not hear - never let another celebrity say that until the time was right - I have done sufficiently. I have sufficiently.
As far as Will Smith / Chris Rock is concerned, Jim had earlier conveyed his views on the incident where Will slapped Chris on the Oscar stage for making fun of his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. "It took a toll on everyone's shining moment," Jim told Gayle King . "A lot of people have worked hard to get to this place.
And to spend your moments in the sun, to get their award for what they worked for, it's no small feat to go through what you have to go through to be selected for an Oscar. This is the glove of devotion that you must make. But unfortunately, it was a selfish moment that threw a shadow over it all.
