Brad Pitt says he'll retire in three years
We hear actors talking about taking early retirement all the time, but either they're really old and tired of it all (Sean Connery), or really young and too naive to know better (Amanda Bynes).
But you don't get any more A-list than Brad Pitt, who has been working consistently for decades now, and likely could have many great years on the screen ahead of him. That's why it's so surprising to hear his answer to the Australian 60 Minutes question, "How much longer would you like to do your business for?"
"Three years," he says. And after that?
"Hell if I know. Hell if I know. I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together. And getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise, so…You know, I have gotten away with a few things in writing and I have been pissed off about a few things. How’s that?"
But still, retiring from acting at 50 for someone as high profile as Pitt is a pretty unusual statement. It's not like he's had a string of awful movies or something that has had him lambasted by critics or fans.
In the last few years he's starred in MONEYBALL, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, THE TREE OF LIFE and INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, all of which were hugely praised and had or will have a few Oscar nominations, including at least one for Pitt personally.
Why would you hang it all up now Brad?
