Brad's Parade Interview
The story that started the drama.
Though he’s arguably hitting the peak of his adult movie career, Brad Pitt says he’s contemplating leaving the business in three years, when he turns 50.

So he said in a recent interview with Australia’s 60 Minutes, anyway, during which he also talked about the possibility of extending his family.

As far as what he would do after retiring from acting, the answer remains unclear.

“Hell if I know,” he said. “Hell if I know. 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, so … You know, I have gotten away with a few things in writing and I have been pissed off about a few things.”

One thing’s for sure, though: Brad hasn’t closed the door yet on having more children.

“You know, I don’t know that we’re finished. I don’t know yet. I don’t know.”

Brad is currently receiving major Oscar buzz for his performance in the Billy Beane biopic, Moneyball. His other film from 2011, Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, recently came out on DVD.
