Hollywood star Brad Pitt has announced plans to quit acting when he turns 50.
The 47-year-old actor said in an interview with 60 Minutes in Australia that he only wanted to continue in the business for another three years, according to the BBC.
Asked what he would do afterwards, the actor replied: “Hell if I know” but added that he was “enjoying the producing side and getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise.”
The actor was promoting his latest film “Moneyball,” about a struggling baseball team, which has been attracting interest in the run-up to the Oscars.
Pitt has already produced more than a dozen films, including “Moneyball,” “The Tree of Life,” “Kick-Ass,” “The Time Traveller’s Wife” and his upcoming zombie film, “World War Z.”
In another recent interview with The Sunday Times’ Culture magazine, the star said he thought he was nearing the end of his shelf life.
“[However], there are a couple of things I’d still like to do,” he said. “I am looking forward to playing a foul-mouthed grumpy old dude one day, that’s for sure.”
Pitt also told 60 Minutes’ Tara Brown he was considering having more children with partner Angelina Jolie, saying: “I don’t know that we’re finished.”
