Brad Pitt might 'organically' retire from acting
Actor Brad Pitt, 55, admitted that he has other interests and he was not sure whether he would naturally end his screen career or never stop.
LONDON - Brad Pitt has admitted he might "organically" retire from acting - but he was not sure yet.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star has spoken about the movie's director Quentin Tarantino's recent comments about planning his own retirement after his next film.
Pitt, 55, admitted that he has other interests and he was not sure whether he would naturally end his screen career or never stop.
Asked about Tarantino's comments and how he felt about giving up movies, he told PEOPLE: "No, I don't know. I don't know. I enjoy doing other things. 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."
Pulp Fiction helmer Tarantino previously pitched an R-rated script for a new instalment in the rebooted Star Trek franchise to producer J.J. Abrams which was being strongly considered.
The 56-year-old filmmaker has always vowed that he would make 10 movies and then retire and as the proposed film would reach that number, he insisted he would make good on his promise if it got the green light.
He said: "I guess I do have a loophole, [if] the idea was to throw a loophole into it. Which would be [to go], 'Uh, I guess 'Star Trek' doesn't count. I can do 'Star Trek' ... but naturally I would end on an original. But the idea of doing 10 isn't to come up with a loophole. I actually think if I was going to do 'Star Trek' I should commit to it. It's my last movie. There should be nothing left-handed about it. I don't know if I'm going to do that, but that might happen."
Pitt recently admitted that acting was a "young man's game".
Speaking of his other passions, he said: "I'm behind the camera on the producing side and I enjoy that a lot. But I keep doing less and less. I really believe that overall it's a younger man's game - not that there aren't substantial parts for older characters - I just feel, the game itself, it'll move on naturally. There will be a natural selection to it all."
