What a legend, & I don’t say that lightly. Jim Carrey has a profound sense of humor, some would say from a bygone era, where it was ok to make mature jokes, not insensitive jokes mind you, & it didn’t matter the audience. pic.twitter.com/bhMIjOPBvp— Thirsty4Chicken (Nick) (@Thirst4Chicken) January 17, 2022
Carrey's hilarious leading roles in 'Dumb and Dumber,' 'The Mask,' and 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' have earned him a fan following since his breakout in the early 1990s sketch comedy series 'In Living Color.'
The actor made an appearance on singer The Weeknd's fifth studio album, 'Dawn FM,' which he narrates as a soft-rock radio DJ, earlier this month. He also returns as Doctor Eggman in 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2,' which hits theatres on April 8.
Carrey had earlier discussed why he's kept away from the spotlight in recent years and how he's turned to painting as a creative outlet. "I just didn't want to be in the business anymore," he told The Hollywood Reporter in 2018.
"I didn't like what was happening, the corporations taking over and all that. And maybe it's because I felt pulled toward a different type of creative outlet and I really liked the control of painting — of not having a committee in the way telling me what the idea must be to appeal to a four-quadrant whatever”, he had said.
