Brad Pitt indicates he might retire from acting

Actor Brad Pitt indicated that he might be retiring from his acting career soon, according to a report by The Washington Examiner.

Pitt is known for Oscar-winning roles, and movies such as The Fight Club, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and a multiplicity of others.

The actor hinted that he would be retiring during an interview released on Wednesday, sending shock waves through the acting community.

“I consider myself on my last leg, this last semester or trimester,” Pitt said, according to GQ magazine. “What is this section going to be? And how do I want to design that?”

Pitt, who had intended to become an art director before his acting career took off, started acting at the age of 22 after dropping out of the University of Missouri just before completing his journalism degree.

Pitt’s ex-wife Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in 2016, and it was finally finalized in 2019. For years, the two have fought in the courts over their shared property and their six children.

Pitt, 58, claims he became sober following Jolie’s divorce petition and has been a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, an international mutual aid fellowship committed to abstinence-based alcoholism rehabilitation, for the past 1.5 years. Pitt claims that he too gave up smoking during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pitt, who was previously married to Angelina Joli and Jennifer Aniston before that, is awaiting the premiere of Sony’s Bullet Train, his upcoming film, which debuts on August 5.

Pitt is not the only celebrity to indicate retirement plans for 2022; in a March interview, comedian Jim Carrey said he was “pretty serious” about leaving acting.
