In a recent interview, the actor announced his plans to retire when he turns 50. Then he wants to focus more on production and especially his on his family.
During an interview on the Australian show 60 Minutes, the 47-year-old revealed that he will continue his acting career for the next 3 years.
But Brad won’t necessarily turn his back on the film, saying he would like to devote himself to his vocation as a producer, an activity her holds dear.
Asked how long he would continue in the movie industry, Pitt said: “Three years.”
But when questioned what he would do afterwards, he joked: “Hell if I know!”, adding, “I’ve really enjoyed the producerial [sic] side and getting stories to the plate that may have had a harder time otherwise.”
The actor is following in the footsteps of his partner, Angelina Jolie, who had expressed her desire to slow down filming a few months ago.
The star also explained his view on happiness: “I think happiness is overrated. Sometimes you’re happy, sometimes you’re not. There’s too much pressure to be happy. I don’t give a s**t. I know I will be happy sometimes and I won’t be at times. Being at peace is more of a goal for myself.”
As for whether he and partner Angelina Jolie will add to their brood of six, Pitt commented: “I don’t know that we’re finished yet, I don’t know yet.”
Recently, the Brangelina couple decided to take son Pax and their brood to Vietnam , home of the little boy in an effort to ensure that their adopted children grow up knowing their roots and the culture of their country of origin.
