FILM star Brad Pitt has said he is ready to quit acting in three years when he turns 50.
Pitt revealed his plans in an interview with Australian chat show 60 Minutes to promote his new film Moneyball.
When asked how long he planned to carry on acting, the 47-year-old said: "Three years." Asked what he would do afterwards he said: "Hell if I know."
But he added that he had enjoyed producing and "getting stories to the plate that may have had a harder time otherwise".
In another recent interview, the actor admitted that he was nearing his "shelf life" although he was still looking forward to a role playing a foul-mouthed "grumpy old man".
Pitt was being interviewed in Tokyo for the Australian show. His announcement comes as he and partner Angelina Jolie - whose joint worth is estimated at £155 million - visited Vietnam where second child Pax comes from.
