Brad Pitt has been one of Hollywood’s most prolific actors for over three decades, but it seems his career is nearing its final stage. The Oscar-winning actor hinted at possible retirement in a recent interview for GQ, saying that he’s on the “last leg” of his career.

GQ’s Ottessa Moshfegh writes that Pitt told her that “he’s trying to think carefully about what’s ahead, about the path that he wants to chart for the final stages of an abundantly creative career.”

“I consider myself on my last leg, this last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” said the 58-year-old actor.

Pitt has been taking things slow on the acting front since 2019, when he finally won the first acting Oscar of his career for the role in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood. He returned to acting this year with a cameo in The Lost City alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, and we’ll soon get to see him in The Bullet Train and Babylon.

Even if Pitt retires from acting, it’s highly unlikely that he’ll turn his back on the film industry completely. His production company Plan B is a major player in Hollywood, and it won Pitt his first Oscar as a producer for 12 Years a Slave.
