Brad Pitt has been a household name since the early ’90s, and although he has become nearly synonymous with Hollywood, the A-lister recently spoke about his career nearing its end. “I consider myself on my last leg,” the “Inglourious Basterds” actor told GQ in an interview published June 22. “This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” he added. Although Pitt did not explicitly mention retiring from acting, in the past he had mentioned stepping away.
In 2019, the “World War Z” star spoke about the acting chapter of his career coming to a close. “I don’t know. I enjoy doing other things,” he told People at the time. Pitt said he did not have a grandiose exit strategy from the big screen. “I think that one day I’ll just wake up and organically it’ll be done. Maybe I won’t wake up and that’s why it’ll be done,” the actor added.
Perhaps Pitt would continue to take on smaller roles as he transitioned his career. “It’ll be fewer and farther in between for me, just because I have other things I want to do now,” he told The New York Times in 2019. The Plan B co-founder had discussed his love for working within the production company. “I’m behind the camera on the producing side and I enjoy that a lot,” he told GQ Australia. Pitt also added that acting was “a younger man’s game.”
