The Moneyball star told Empire magazine he's become less concerned with how much money a film will make, and more interested in how well it will age.

"Filmmaking is about longevity. Is it a quality picture? Is it a quality story? Is there something original about it?" he explained.

"Films that I've loved, like (The Assassination of) Jesse James and The Tree Of Life, they're 'fine wine' pictures - they'll age well. They've got legs."

Brad, 47, added: "I like films that make money. But I've been less concerned with that of late.

"I've found with one period where I was thinking that way, I made bad choices."

:: Moneyball is released on November 25.
