The famous and much loved Jim Carrey has worked in the world of cinema for more than 40 years, and has therefore had the opportunity to really try his hand at works of all kinds. He has in fact achieved stardom for his performances in comedies such as Ace Ventura, The Mask, Liar Liar e The Grinchbut also for more dramatic films such as Number 23 e Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It is obvious, after so many years of career, that there are films of which he is most proud and others which, if he could go back in time, he certainly would not do again.

The actor’s official farewell to the world of cinema dates back to a year ago, even if a part of us hopes that sooner or later he will change his mind. These are his words about this (perhaps) definitive greeting: “I retire, I’m quite serious. If the angels bring me some sort of script written in gold ink, and tell me that script is going to really matter to people, I might as well come back. Now I’m taking a break. I really like my quiet life, and I really love painting on canvas, and I really love my spiritual life, and I feel good. And that’s something you may never hear another celebrity say again.
