Jim Carrey Claims He May Retire From Acting Following ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, 60-year-old actor Jim Carrey revealed he has plans to retire from acting.

He was promoting Sonic the Hedgehog 2 when he was asked to respond to recent comments made by Dolly Parton. The country music legend said she wanted Carrey to play her former music partner Porter Wagoner in a potential film about her life.

That’s when Carrey dropped a bombshell, claiming he was retiring from acting…

Well, that’s a lovely thing, but I’m retiring. I’m being fairly serious, yeah. 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.

So basically, he’s retiring until someone blows him away with a script he really likes, which means he could return at any moment.

The actor went on to talk about how much he enjoys his free time, which he dedicates to painting and making art…

I really like my quiet life and I really like 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.

Last checked, Jim Carrey’s net worth stands at nearly $200 million, so yeah, I’d say he has enough.

The First ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Trailer Has Arrived…And It’s Really Weird

We’re not sure what we expected from this live-action adaptation of the legendary ‘Sonic the Hedgehog‘ video game, but it wasn’t whatever the hell this is.

Why is ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ playing? And why do I kinda think it fits? WHY DO I LIKE ANYTHING ABOUT THIS TRAILER?

I mean, look at Sonic’s teeth…why the hell does he have perfect human teeth? I’m confused.

I don’t know what’s going on, but Jim Carrey is playing a villain and James Marsden is playing Sheriff Tom Wachowski.

It’s all so weird and so lovely at the same time. Check out the trailer below. Sonic the Hedgehog will hit theaters this November.


‘The Grinch’ Makeup Artist Claims He Needed Therapy After Working With Jim Carrey

Last year, Netflix released the hilarious behind-the-scenes documentary ‘Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond,’ which featured Jim Carrey in a serious state of method acting. He basically turned into Andy Kaufman, even when the cameras weren’t rolling, he was making everyone’s life hell on set.

And it was okay, because he was playing Andy Kaufman, one of the greatest trolls to ever live. It made sense for Carrey to act like that, and by the end of the film, it seemed like everyone appreciated his efforts.

But that type of behavior on any other set wouldn’t have been as hilarious…just ask makeup artist Kazuhiro Tsuji. He is one of Hollywood’s most renowned special-effects makeup artists. He’s been nominated for three Oscars, and he was the crazy genius behind Carrey’s costume in How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Sadly, the experience on set was a nightmare for Tsuji. During a recent interview with Vulture, Tsuji revealed he needed therapy after working with Carrey…

“On set, [Carrey] was really mean to everybody and at the beginning of the production they couldn’t finish. After two weeks we only could finish three days’ worth of shooting schedule, because suddenly he would just disappear and when he came back, everything was ripped apart. We couldn’t shoot anything.”

Things got so bad that Tsuji left the project temporarily, but when Carrey and the rest of the crew realized how important he was, they begged him to come back.

“I went back under one condition. I was talking with my friends, and they all told me, ‘You should ask for a raise before you go back.’ I didn’t want to do that — kind of nasty. Then I got the idea: How about I ask them to help me to get a green card?” 

He says Carrey managed to keep his temper in check for the rest of production, but he still needed therapy after working with the actor. It was a turning point in his career. He realized no amount of money is worth the abuse, so he focused on only taking projects he was comfortable with, and it seems to be working for him.

Jim Carrey Takes Method Acting To A New Level In Trailer For ‘Jim & Andy’ Documentary (VIDEO)

You know those awkward situations in social settings where someone asks, “If you had the chance to eat dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be?” Well, the answer I typically give is Andy Kaufman. I was once obsessed with Kaufman, to the point where I wanted to be exactly like him.

And I’m not the only one who had those dreams. Jim Carrey actually got the chance to be the late comedian in the 1999 drama/biopic Man on the Moon. Most people agree he nailed the performance.

So how did he get into character? He became Kaufman…on and off set. During filming, and even while promoting the movie, his body was taken over by the ghost of Kaufman. We have proof of this madness, thanks to the new Netflix documentary, Jim & Andy. The film shows exclusive footage of Carrey behind the scenes. We are seeing footage that was locked away for years, ’cause the studio was worried people would think Carrey was a huge a**hole.

This documentary looks hilarious and oddly educational. If you’re an aspiring actor, this film will offer a rare look into the creative process of a legend. It will be released on Netflix November 17.

Keanu Reeves And Jim Carrey Joining Cannibal Love Story ‘The Bad Batch’

We are not sure if anybody saw this coming. Two huge stars just joined the cast of Ana Lily Amirpour’s cannibal love story, The Bad Batch. We knew the unique film had already added Jason Momoa last month, and we figured he would be leading the cast, wrongly assuming he would be surrounded with several newcomers.

But thanks to a report from TheWrap, we have learned that Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves and Suki Waterhouse will be joining the film. Those are some huge names, and it’s honestly made us more excited about this movie. It’s a post-apocalyptic story set in a Texas wasteland where a group of cannibals reside. And yes, The Bad Batch has been described as a love story between cannibal Miami Man (Momoa) and his food.

Waterhouse will be playing the female lead Arlen, Reeves will be playing The Dream and Carrey landed a character named The Hermit.

We don’t know any details surrounding their characters, but hopefully Carrey is able to display the wonderful acting skills we saw in Man on the Moon, The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

As of right now, no more information has been released. We don’t know when filming will begin, we don’t even know if this movie will make it inside theaters; however, we will do our best to keep you updated. It certainly sounds like an interesting project.

10 Incredible Actors Who Have Never Won An Oscar


The 87th annual Academy Awards will air live on ABC in just over two months, and for the great actors listed down below, it may be too painful to watch. We understand that there are only so many awards to hand out and not everyone can leave a winner, but we have to wonder why the voters have failed to recognize all the talent you see down below.

Who would you add to this list?



No. 10 – Glenn Close

Glenn Close, but no cigar. The 67-year-old actress has been nominated an impressive six times, but she never has received an Oscar. She was nominated three times for Best Supporting Actress and three times for Best Actress. Her most recent nomination came after her brilliant performance in Albert Nobbs. She lost to three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep.



No. 9 – John Cusack

John Cusack is an intense guy and he takes his job seriously. He believes in putting out a quality product, and for the most part, he has delivered again and again throughout his career. Starring in award-winning movies like, The Grifters and Bullets Over Broadway; however the Academy just doesn’t seem to appreciate his brilliance.



No. 8 – Jim Carrey

When most people think about Jim Carrey, their mind automatically jumps to his role in Dumb & Dumber. A classic comedy, but I think we can all agree shouting out the ‘most annoying sound in the world’ isn’t Oscar-worthy. But Jim Carrey is more than just a funny face. Who could forget his performance in The Truman Show? He won the Golden Globe award for Best Actor for his performance, but he wasn’t even nominated for the Oscars. And then the same thing happened the following year with Man on the Moon.

But wait, there’s more! Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was a brilliant film. Critics fell in love with the movie, and Carrey’s co-star Kate Winslet landed a nomination for her role in the film. But again, the Academy looked over Carrey’s wonderful performance.



No. 7 – Ian McKellen

Sir Ian was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1991, but he still hasn’t earned an Oscar. He is adored by millions around the world and has earned more than 50 major international acting awards, so he’s probably not that broken up about it. We certainly are though! This man deserves it! But with McKellen turning 76 next year, it’s more likely he will receive an Honorary Oscar Award.



No. 6 – Samuel L. Jackson

This man is a legend. He’s been in this business for over 40 years and has appeared in over 100 films; however, he has only received one Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the classic, Pulp Fiction. Even though he’s about to turn 66, Jackson is still working his ass off.  You will be seeing him in several films next year, so maybe he still has a fighting chance. We are certainly rooting for him.



No. 5 – Julianne Moore
(Won in 2015!!!)

Julianne Moore often gets overlooked when talking about Oscar-less actors, but there is no reason her name shouldn’t be included in this list. After all, she is among a small group of actors who have been nominated twice in the same year. She was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for The Hours and Best Actress for Far From Heaven in 2002. In total, she has received four Oscar nominations. Many people believe she will earn another nomination this year for her performance in Still Alice. Maybe she will actually win this time.



No. 4 – Johnny Depp

Most people just assume Johnny Depp has won an Oscar. He’s one of the most talented actors of his generation, how could he not have an Oscar? Good question. Unfortunately, we don’t have an answer for you. Some people have questioned his range as an actor, but it’s hard to forget about the amount of great films he starred in back in the 1990s and early 2000s. He’s been nominated for Best Actor three times, but lost each time to some stiff competition; Sean Penn, Jamie Foxx and Daniel Day-Lewis.



No. 3 – Amy Adams

Again, you hear someone mention Amy Adams and you just assume she has won an Oscar. And considering she has been nominated five times in the last ten years, it’s not hard to understand why so many people believe that. The good news is that she still has a long career ahead of her, and she is smart when it comes to picking the right movies to star in. I would bet big money on her winning an Oscar before she retires.



No. 2 – Brad Pitt

You all know his name, his wife’s name and the names of his 20 children. You could also probably name at least 10 films he has starred in. That’s just how popular Brad Pitt is. Almost every movie he stars in is a success, simply because his name is attached to it. He’s been nominated three times, most recently for his performance in Moneyball, but he still hasn’t received that special solo award. As one of the producers of 12 Years A Slave, he did receive a win for Best Picture.


No. 1 – Leonardo DiCaprio

No words are needed. Just this one GIF…


Movie Review: Dumb and Dumber To (2014) – Carrey and Daniels almost pull it off despite a Horrible Script


Before I get started on this review, I should state I’m not one of those uptight people who hated the original Dumb and Dumber. I’ve been known to enjoy my share of crude humor. The original, that came out more than 2 decades ago was great, while this one was just a little…sad.

In their heyday, the Farelly Brothers turned moronic humor into something almost graceful. They slapped the romantic comedy genre in the face with “There’s Something About Mary”. They made the absurd enjoyable in “Stuck on You.” They made the common cold interesting with “Osmosis Jones.” In the 90s, everything those brothers touched turned to gold. Then, they released Fever Pitch and it all went downhill from there.

In this rendition, we again meet Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) as they prepare for another road trip. This time around, Harry is desperately in need of a kidney transplant. You ever heard that saying, “about as funny as a heart attack”? Yeah, replace “heart attack” with “kidney transplant” and you’ll feel the same way. Anyway, lucky for Harry, it turns out he has a lost love child. Luckily for Lloyd, that lost love child is a hottie. So they hit the road to find her. Of course, that’s not all there is to it. A murderer who’s in league with her adoptive mom is also hunting for Harry’s lost love child.

The script could have used a few more drafts. This is not the crisp clever storytelling of the Farelly Brothers we’ve grown accustomed to. Instead, it’s filled with contrived coincidences and forced plot lines that make the movie confusing and hard to follow. It seems strange, but it’s almost as if the Farrelly’s have unlearned anything they knew about staging and script composition.

dumb and dumber couch ap

Or maybe they outsourced the script to someone who never saw the original and spoke English as a second language?

I must give both Carrey and Daniels props for their excellent job. With a better script, they might have pulled this movie off. They haven’t lost any of the sparkle they had twenty years ago and both seamlessly slipped into their characters as though they’d just stopped filming Dumb and Dumber a few months ago. These two carried the movie.

The problem was that most of the jokes fell flat. Some jokes you could see coming miles away, while others made you barely let out a chuckle. The surprise ending is just as obvious and really should come as no surprise if you’re familiar with the characters. While it does have its sweet moments, for the most part the movie just falls flat.


I’d say the best part comes at the end, when an announcement for Dumb and Dumber For is put out, with a release date of 2034.

All in all, this movie is just funny enough to make you realize how much better it could have been if real work was done on the script. In the first movie, the coincidences were clever and there was an actual exciting thriller element. In this one, it seems a little recycled.

It’s not terrible. It’s just not that great. If you’re a die hard Farelly brothers fan, then this movie might be worth the watch. Otherwise, I’d just wait another 20 years for the third sequel.

8 Movie Stars Who Hated Their Own Films


Most movie stars will promote and praise every movie they appear in, even if they know it’s actually a terrible movie. Anything to sell a few tickets, right?

But there are some honest celebrities out there. The actors you see down below weren’t afraid to admit they starred in some truly awful films.


No. 8 – David Cross: Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked

David Cross, the actor who once suffered from ‘Never Nude’ syndrome on Arrested Development, is not afraid to speak his mind. After bashing, ‘Alvin and the Chimpmunks: Chipwrecked’ on Conan, telling the audience not to go see it. He then later admitted on his website that he only took the role because he had been out of work for six months and needed the money.


No. 7 – Charlize Theron: Reindeer Games

It wasn’t all fun and games for the cast of Reindeer Games. The 2000 film, directed by the late John Frankenheimer, featured stars like Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron and Gary Sinise. But all that talent couldn’t save this clunker. “Reindeer Games was not a good movie.” Charlize Theron admitted.



No. 6 – John Cusack: Better Off Dead

Steve Holland’s ‘Better Off Dead’ had John Cusack wishing he was dead. He disliked the film so much that he walked out of the screening and told Holland the film was the “worst thing” he had ever seen. He also said he would never trust him as a director again, which must have been awkward considering they were filming ‘One Crazy Summer’ at the time.



No. 5 – Mark Wahlberg: The Happening

During a press conference for his film, ‘The Fighter,’ Mark Wahlberg talked about a conversation he had with Amy Adams during lunch. He admitted, ‘The Happening’ was a terrible movie, saying, “F*** it. It is what it is. F***ing trees, man. The plants. F*** it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher.”



No. 4 – George Clooney: Batman & Robin

Joel Schumacher’s 1997 ‘Batman & Robin’ disaster almost killed the Batman franchise, and now almost 20 years later, George Clooney is still apologizing for his role in the film. He played Batman in the movie, which currently has a 3.6 rating on IMDb. “Sorry about the nipples on the suit. Freeze, freeze, I apologize for that.” He said during the ‘Tomorrowland’  Comic-Con panel.

No. 3 – Jim Carrey: Kick-Ass 2

It’s usually all about the laughs with Jim Carrey, but after the sickening Sandy Hook shooting, the comedian admitted he could no longer support such violence in films. ”I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.” He wrote on his Twitter account.

No. 2 – Katherine Heigl: Knocked Up

Unlike most of the films on this list, ‘Knocked Up’ was a huge hit. Taking in a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It helped solidify the movie careers of Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl. However, Heigl didn’t like how the film portrayed women. “[It’s] a little sexist. It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys.” She said after the film was released.

No. 1 – Sylvester Stallone: Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot

It’s clear all the stars on this list hated their movies, but Sylvester Stallone probably hated his the most. He claims ‘Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot’ could be used as a torture device. “If you ever want someone to confess to murder, just make him or her sit through that film. They will confess to anything after 15 minutes.” Stallone said.

Chloë Moretz Says Piracy Killed Hit-Girl And ‘Kick-Ass 3’


Fans of the Kick-Ass films will likely be disappointed after hearing what Chloë Moretz told Digital Spy recently. The 17-year-old actress was asked if she would be returning to her role as Hit-Girl in the Kick-Ass franchise.

She replied with a very honest and gloomy answer.

“Sadly, I think I’m done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.”

Before we show you the rest of her quote, we need to take a moment to defend our fanboys. There were a number of reasons Kick-Ass 2 didn’t deliver at the box office. The critics disliked the film. It didn’t even crack the 30% mark on Rotten Tomatoes. That certainly didn’t help.

You know what else didn’t help? Jim Freakin’ Carrey. He refused to promote the movie, and publicly denounced his involvement in the violent film.

“I did Kickass a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence.”

Remember that? That probably did more damage than piracy. As Moretz mentions down below, Kick-Ass 2 did have a big problem with piracy, but it’s not the reason it only took in $28 million in the United States.

”‘Kick-Ass 2′ was one of the number one pirated movies of the year, but that doesn’t help us because we need box office figures. We need to prove to the distributors that we can make money from a third and a fourth movie – but because it didn’t do so well, we can’t make another one. If you want more than one movie, everyone has to go and see movies at the cinema. It’s all about the numbers in the theater.”

What do you think? Did piracy defeat Kick-Ass?
