Comedy star Jim Carrey, a favorite of the public without an Oscar, talked to The Hollywood Reporter on the eve of his return to the movies after years of relative calm due to suicides of his lover Catriona White.
This year, the 56-year-old actor will appear in the TV series “Shuchu”, in which he will play the role of a desperate comedian. The series will begin broadcasting in early September for the joy of Jim’s fans.
In his interview, the star of the movie “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” explained that he disappeared from Hollywood simply because he “did not want to do business anymore”. He “stretched himself to another type of creativity”, that is, to art, where he controls the process, and not a certain higher committee.
Recalling his first success in the film “Ace Ventura”, the actor made it clear that even then, in the 90’s, he was critical of the big cinema. “My plan was not to join Hollywood, but to destroy it. As, say, take a huge sledgehammer and bring it to your boss in all seriousness. ”
