55 year-old American actor Brad Pitt, who is looking forward to a life which is less focussed on acting, opened up about his film career and revealed that he is planning to make fewer movies.
Pitt starred in the cult film Fight Club (1999) and the heist film Ocean’s Eleven (2001) and its sequels, Ocean’s Twelve (2004) and Ocean’s Thirteen (2007). His greatest commercial successes have been Troy (2004), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), World War Z (2013), and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019).
The actor, who rose to fame with the 1991 road movie Thelma and Louise, made an acclaimed return to the big screen with this year’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. His space drama Ad Astra is set to hit the theatres soon. But back-to-back major movies does not mean he’s looking to work more at this stage in his career. It’s actually the opposite for the star, reported People.
“It’ll be fewer and farther in between for me, just because I have other things I want to do now,” the 55-year-old actor said in a new interview with The New York Times.
When you feel like you’ve finally got your arms around something, then it’s time to go get your arms around something else,” he added. Pitt previously spoke to People at the Los Angeles premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, where he opened up about whether he had ever considered retiring, given director of the film Quentin Tarantino’s vocal stance on it. Tarantino has often said he’s retiring after 10 films, meaning he has one more left after Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
