While promoting his new movie 'Moneyball' on an Australian talk show, the 47-year-old 'Megamind' actor claims that he's been planning to retire from his acting career three years from now.
Brad Pitt has a plan to quit acting when he turns 50. When asked how long he plans to carry on as an actor during a recent interview with Australian talk show "60 Minutes", the actor, who received an Oscar nomination for his role in 2008's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button", revealed that he is likely to bid goodbye to acting in three years.
On his plan after retiring from acting, the "Moneyball" star admitted, "Hell if I know." Nonetheless, he did note, "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."
The longtime partner of Angelina Jolie also believed that happiness is overrated. "Sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're not," he explained. "There's too much pressure to be happy. I don't give a s***. I know I will be happy sometimes and I won't be at times. Being at peace is more of a goal for myself."
After starring as Billy Beane in baseball drama "Moneyball", Pitt will be seen in upcoming post-apocalyptic horror film "World War Z", as well as forthcoming crime movie "Cogan's Trade". He also lent his voice to Will the Krill in "Happy Feet Two", which has just been premiered in Los Angeles on Monday, November 13.
