Brad Pitt needs no introduction, as he’s hailed as one of the most famous actors in the world. We know him as a legendary leading man, a Hollywood power broker, maybe the greatest heartthrob of all time. Recently, Brad teased in a candid new interview that he is nearing retirement after more than 30 years in the entertainment industry.
During a recent sit-down for GQ cover story, Brad shared, “I consider myself on my last leg,” He added, “This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” Pitt, who began acting at the age of 22, has starred in iconic movies such as “Fight Club,” “Moneyball,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and the “Ocean’s Eleven” series.
Britt also said, “I’m one of those creatures that speaks through art, just want to always make. If I’m not making, I’m dying in some way.” While the Oscar winner has not given up on work just yet, he has quit something else: cigarettes. Pitt told the magazine that he decided to stop smoking during the COVID-19 pandemic because he is “at that age when nothing good comes from it.”
Elsewhere in the interview, The “Departed” producer shared that he currently resides in a home in Hollywood Hills, Calif., that he bought in 1994 in the midst of his rise to stardom. While he told GQ that he has been “pretty much hiding out” in the once “run-down and dilapidated” fixer-upper, Pitt will soon emerge again to promote his latest film, “Bullet Train,” which hits theaters August 5.
Meanwhile, the “Thelma & Louise” star is still in the midst of a tumultuous court battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie. The couple filed for divorce in September 2016 after two years of marriage and 12 years together. They were declared legally single in April 2019, but continue to hash out issues including custody of their children. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
