Jim Carrey Explains Why He Disappeared from Hollywood

 

 JIM CARREY says he needed to take some time away from Hollywood, because, quote, "I just didn't want to be in the business anymore.  I didn't like what was happening, the corporations taking over and all that."

 

 Two decades ago, JIM CARREY was a sensation, and was commanding $20 million paychecks.  Then, he did some critically-acclaimed, 'serious' roles.  But in recent years, he hasn't done much at all.

 

 

In an interview with the "Hollywood Reporter", Jim said it was a conscious decision.  Quote, "I just didn't want to be in the business anymore.  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's talking about the paintings he's posting on Twitter, which are often social and political commentaries.

 

 

But he also has a new show coming to Showtime next month called "Kidding", which is a comedy-slash-drama where he plays the host of a children's show, whose real life is unraveling.

 

 

Now that he's back, Jim says it's on his terms.  Quote, "I don't feel I'm little Jim trying to hang on to a place in the stratosphere anymore.  I don't feel like I'm trying to hold on to anything."
