Brad Pitt wants to retire from acting in three years — for his children’s sake

Should he move on?

Could Brad Pit really be done with acting within three years? Based on the actor’s newest comments in an interview with Australia’s version of “60 Minutes,” it appears as though he is ready to move on to other things.

The 47-year old “Moneyball” star told the show that he would like to retire at age 50, and is looking to potentially get into more producing — in particular when it comes to helping documentaries get to the big screen that wouldn’t have a chance otherwise.

In addition, Pitt also says that one of the reasons behind this decision would be to help protect his six children with Angelina Jolie — especially since there could be more in the future:

“Their [the kids’] idea is that when they go out beyond the gate – because we have to live behind a gate – there’s people standing there in line with cameras that try to take your picture. 

“Their idea is that everyone has to deal with that, though the older ones are getting more savvy. It’s the only thing that I get hot about, that I’m ready to fight about.”

If Brad does end up leaving the acting world at age 50, what do you think his lasting legacy will be?
