In GQ’s new Brad Pitt cover story, Brad says he’s got his mind on winding down his acting career. “I consider myself on my last leg,” “This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” Before you panic, he’s still going to put in several more years whether that be through producing, music or one of his other passions, art and sculpture. “I’m one of those creatures that speaks through art,” “I just want to always make. If I’m not making, I’m dying in some way.”
You can see him next on screen in Bullet Train (August 5th). He plays an assassin on a train from Tokyo to Kyoto who has returned to the risky job after a case of burnout.
In the GQ feature, 58-year-old Pitt also opens up about finally quitting cigarettes, and being a part of 12-step recovery groups after getting sober nearly six years ago.
