Is Brad Pitt Going To Retire?
In recent years, Brad Pitt, 55, has been stepping away from the spotlight, focusing on his family, charities and other creative endeavors like sculpture. According to new interview, it seems he may make that move permanent.
Speaking with GQ Australia, the Oscar-winner confessed: "I'm behind the camera on the producing side and I enjoy that a lot. But I keep doing less and less. I really believe that overall it's a younger man's game – not that there aren't substantial parts for older characters – I just feel, the game itself, it'll move on naturally. There will be a natural selection to it all."
He said that he’s watching how streamers are shaping the market and admits he’s "curious" to see where they take Hollywood. But he also seemed ready to step aside and let a new generation take the lead. "I like to think there's room for both," the actor said. "But I could be a dinosaur and not even know it, man. And the comet could be on the way."
Reflecting on his role with Leonardo DiCaprio in the upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, he said: "We kind of popped at the same time. This is a guy who's really giving and really goes for it, so you know it's great fun being able to spar with that caliber of actor. And he's just great fun."
On what drew him to this film, he said he couldn’t resist working with director Quentin Tarantino: "He's such an original voice in the lexicon of film and his sets are just full of enthusiasm and delight. That's why we're there."
