Brad Pitt Says Acting Is ‘A Younger Man’s Game’ in New GQ Interview
Brad Pitt has been a Hollywood A-lister for decades, but he is ready to slow down on his work in front of the camera.
The 55-year-old actor is on the cover of GQ Australia, where he talks about his career and family life.
“I’m behind the camera on the producing side and I enjoy that a lot,” Pitt tells the magazine. “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.”
Pitt also opened up about streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, and their effect on television and film.
“I’m curious to see what the future of it is, what shape it takes,” he said. “I really appreciate the streaming services because we’re seeing more and more quality projects being made. We’re seeing more writers and directors and actors getting a shot. It just tells you how many talented people are out there.”
Still, don’t count Pitt out just yet. He’s currently starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
