Jim Carrey turned 60 this year and he declared that he’s retiring from the acting. He made the career announcement during an interview with Access Hollywood, shocking the world in a big way.

While speaking to Access Hollywood, Carey said that retirement is plan unless he gets a call from Dolly Parton. After all, if anyone can change his mind it’s Dolly.

“I am retiring. I am being fairly serious” he said. Carrey didn’t say the door is closed for good on other projects though, explaining that he would consider a script that was “important for people to see”. That includes a Dolly Parton biopic. The singer has previously said she would love Jim to portray her music partner Porter Waggoner.

“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,” the Canadian-born star noted to a stunned Kit. “I might continue down the road, but I’m taking a break. I really like my quiet life, and I really love 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.”

“I love Dolly Parton” Jim beamed when talking about a potential film about her. “We were born in different eras and it’s a shame….Cause I’d have chased her” he added, then declaring, “I’d have caught her.”

Jim has had one of the most successful comedy acting careers in history. Carrey got his start as a stand-up comedian and first found screen fame in 1990 after he nabbed a role in US sketch comedy program In Living Color. Jim continued the momentum into the early 2000s with Bruce Almighty co-starring Jennifer Aniston, and of course, the forever-Christmas classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
