Brad Pitt has said he is not worried about getting older.

The 47-year-old actor said he likes ageing because of the "wisdom" that comes with it, and said he is taking better care of himself because of his six children.

The Hollywood star made the comments at a news conference in Seoul. He is visiting South Korea for the first time to promote his new baseball film, Moneyball, which opens there on Thurday.

He arrived alone after visiting Japan and Vietnam with partner Angelina Jolie and their children last week.

A long-haired Brad said he was excited to be in South Korea because Angelina "spoke highly" of a visit she made last year.

Brad has also been hinting about his plans to retire from acting in "three years".

The Tree Of Life star - whose upcoming movies include Cogan's Trade and World War Z - wants to focus on producing through his Plan B company.

"I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together. And getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise," he told Australia's 60 Minutes.

Brad admitted he is getting choosy with his roles as he becomes more conscious of the legacy that he'll leave behind not only in the industry but for his kids.

"If I'm choosing a film now, I want it to be maybe less immature than things I have done in the past. I'm very conscious, when they're adults I want it to mean something to them," he said.
