While sitting down with Access Hollywood to promote his new film Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Carrey mentioned the possibility of stepping away from his career in show biz.

During the conversation, he told interviewer Kit Hoover that he is "probably" retiring from acting, which he claimed to be "fairly serious" about.

"It depends, if the angels bring some sort of script that's written in gold ink that says to me that it's gonna be really important for people to see, I might continue down the road," he stated, "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," Carrey added.

The Yes Man star continued: "I feel like — and I feel like 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."

Following the Sonic film, which hits theaters later this month, Carrey doesn't have anymore movies lined up other than a Netflix special honoring Bob Saget, where he will appear alongside Chris Rock, John Mayer, John Stamos and Jeff Ross to pay tribute to the late comedian who passed earlier this year.

Carrey recently hinted at being disenchanted with Hollywood following the Will Smith Oscars debacle at the 94th Academy Awards over the weekend, where the King Richard star slapped presenter Chris Rock on stage for making an offensive joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

In giving his own two cents on the situation, Carrey claimed to be "sickened" by the standing ovation from the crowd when Smith was awarded Best Actor even after his violent outburst.

"I feel like Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like, 'Oh, this is a really clear indication that we're not the cool club anymore," Carrey candidly pointed out.
