Brad Pitt may or may not be grabbing the silver screen as often as he is, and opening up about his film career.
The actor told GQ magazine in a cover story interview Wednesday that he approached retirement.
“I consider myself my last leg,” Pitt said, “this last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that? ”
Pitt is still slated for acting gigs in 2022, including director David Leitch’s action blockbuster “Bullet Train” about five assassins aboard a fast-moving train, and the classic drama film “Babylon.”
The 58-year-old actor, known for his performances in “Fight Club” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” has gradually receded from onscreen roles and has taken a more prominent position as a camera producer. Pitt is the current CEO of Plan B Entertainment’s helmed works such as the 2016 “Moonlight,” the Golden Globe-winning film “Minari” and the just-released remake of “Father of the Bride.”

Pitt delved deeper into his sobriety, saying when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce in 2016, he would be getting the year’s sober and attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
“I had a really cool group of men here that were really private and selective, so it was safe,” Pitt told GQ. “Because of what I’ve seen of other people who have been spilling their guts, and that’s just atrocious to me.”
The ex-couple have been embroiled in a custody battle since the initial divorce filings where Jolie asked for all six of their children – Maddox, 20, Pax, 18, Zahara, 17, Shiloh, 16, and twins Vivienne and Knox , 13. Pitt was tentatively awarded joint custody last spring, though Jolie’s team criticized the private judge for not testifying to the couple’s children in custody proceedings.
In October, California’s Supreme Court dismissed Pitt’s appeal and decided it would be the first time a state appeals court ruled that Jolie was a major jury disqualifying a private judge from holding a divorce. Jolie’s team filed a petition in August 2020 against Pitt’s team of an attorney with a judge’s business connection to a disclosure issue from the judge.
According to Holly Davis, a trial lawyer and founding partner of Austin divorce firm Kirker Davis LLP, the custody case will likely begin with a new judge.
