During an appearance on Australia’s “60 Minutes,” Brad Pitt said he plans to stop acting by age 50 so he can focus on working behind the scenes on films. When asked how long he plans to continue acting, the 47-year-old star replied, “Three years.”
Pitt went on to detail his future career plans, adding, “I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together … getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times otherwise.”
In an interview with The Sunday Times’ Culture magazine, Pitt expands on how he sees his future, adding, “We all have a shelf life, and mine is coming — although there are a couple of things I’d still like to do. I am looking forward to playing a foul-mouthed grumpy old dude one day, that’s for sure.”
Pitt has several producing credits to his name, including “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “Eat Pray Love,” and this year’s “The Tree of Life,” which he also starred in.
