Brad Pitt has suggested that he might quit acting when he turns 50, which means that one of the world’s most famous film stars could be retiring in just three years’ time. But he also hints that he wouldn’t mind returning for the occasional gig, perhaps as a grump old man some way down the line.
It’s not clear what Pitt would be doing with his time if he gave up acting. Speaking in Australia to promote his latest film Moneyball, Pitt admitted that even he wasn’t sure of his plans. But he did suggest that he and wife Angelina Jolie might want to add to their current collection of six children.
One possible avenue for Pitt’s future career could be in producing. He has already helped get the likes of Moneyball, The Time Traveller’s Wife and World War Z to the big screen, and even if he gives up acting he’ll still have strong name recognition, which could help get projects greenlit.
