Brad Pitt Will Retire From Acting When He Turns 50
Brad Pitt told Australia's 60 Minutes that he will forsake acting three years from now when he hits the "Big Five-O."
By retiring from acting, Pitt does not mean another Ocean's installment or a sequel to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Having spent enough time in the public eye, Pitt now wants to live the quiet life with Angie and the kids.
"I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together," he told correspondent Tara Brown, "and getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times otherwise."
With Coogan's Trade, World War Z, Voyage of Time, and Twelve Years a Slave in various stages of pre and post-production, it's a safe bet Pitt's name will be adorning marquees for years to come. Besides, after a few years of isolation in his Bayou boarding house with nothing but a high-maintenance hausfrau and six screaming kids to occupy his time, Pitt will be kicking down Gore Verbinski's door begging for a sequel to The Mexican to reboot his career.
