Jim Carrey Explains Why He Disappeared from Hollywood

posted by Drew - 

 

 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."
