Brad Pitt recently opened up to Australia’s 60 Minutes, revealing to the news program that he’s going to quit acting in three years (when he’s 50!). He also hinted that he and partner Angelina Jolie might be adding to their family in the near future.
“You know, I don’t know that we’re finished,” Brad Pitt told the show in response to whether or not he and Jolie would add another little one (either conceived or adopted) to the family, which includes Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and Vivienne and Knox, 3. “I don’t know yet. I don’t know,” he said. What he does know is how much fun he’s currently having with his small army.
“Those late nights are so fun when one of them’s up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something,” he says. “That’s what it’s about.”
Brad Pitt, 47, said he’s had his fair share of acting, and that it’s what’s on the other side of the camera that has been intriguing him lately.
“I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together…Getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times otherwise.”
In an interesting twist, when the news program asked Brad Pitt if he was happy, he answered with a not-so-usual answer:
“I think happiness is overrated, truthfully. I do,” he says. “I think sometimes you’re happy, sometimes you’re not. There’s too much pressure to be happy. I don’t know. I don’t really give a sh—. I know I will be at times and I know I won’t be at times. Satisfied, at peace, those would be more goals for myself.”
