Jim Carrey plans to retire.

The ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’ star feels he has had “enough” with his career and is ready to live a “quiet life” out of the spotlight, though he admits being offered a “very important” project could change his mind.

Asked about Dolly Parton’s recent comments that she wanted Jim to play her musical partner Porter Wagoner in her biopic, the 60-year-old star told ‘Access Hollywood’: “Well, I’m retiring. Yes, maybe. I’m getting pretty serious. .

“It depends, if the angels brought some kind of script written in gold ink that told me it would be very important for people to see, I would probably continue on my way but I’m going to take a break.

“I really like my quiet life and I really like painting on canvas and I really love my spiritual life and I feel, and this is something you probably won’t hear any other celebrity say while time is around – I’ve had enough. I’ve had enough. I’ve had enough.”

But the ‘Dumb and Dumber’ star admitted that, if the ‘9 to 5’ singer contacted him about the project, he would “always talk to Dolly”.

Jim recently branded the Hollywood community “helpless” when he denounced the rapturous applause Will Smith received when he won Best Actor at the Oscars, less than an hour after he hit Chris Rock for a joke he made about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Jim said: “I’m sick of it. I’m sick of the applause. Hollywood is powerless en masse and I feel like this is a very clear indication that we’re not a cool club anymore.

“I’m going to announce this morning that I’m suing Will for $200 million because the video is going to be there forever, it’s going to be everywhere. The insults are going to go on for a very long time. If you want to scream from the audience and show disapproval or say something on Twitter [that’s fine]. But you have no right to go on stage and hit someone in the face because they said the words.”

However, the ‘Mask’ actor insisted that he had “nothing against” Will.

He added: “[The slap] appeared out of nowhere because Will had something going on inside of him that was frustrating. I wish him the best. I’m not against Will Smith. He’s done great things, but it’s not a great moment. It overshadowed everyone’s shining moment last night… It was a selfish moment..”
