Is Brad Pitt already thinking about quitting his on-screen career?
The 47-year-old actor and father to actress Angelina Jolie's six children said in a recent video interview with the Australian version of the show "60 Minutes" reported that Pitt is "preparing to turn his back on acting."
When asked, "How much longer would you like to do your business for?" Pitt says: "Three years."
He is then asked what he plans to do afterwards.
"Hell if I know," the actor says in the interview. "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."
Pitt recently filmed the sci-fi movie "World War Z" and the crime thriller "Cogan's Trade," which are set to hit theaters in 2012. He is also due to start filming the movie "Twelve Years a Slave," which is set in the 1800s and tells of a New York man who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in the deep South. It also stars "X-Men" star Michael Fassbender and is due to be released in 2014.
Pitt has served as a producer on many of his films, including "World War Z" and the baseball movie "Moneyball," which was released earlier this year.
Pitt began his on-screen acting career in the late 1980s. His breakout role came in 1991, when he played a hunky con artist in the film "Thelma & Louise" alongside Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis. He has since earned Oscar nominations for his parts in the 1995 film "Twelve Monkeys" and the 2009 drama "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
