Los Angeles - Brad Pitt plans to retire at 50.
The Moneyball actor has revealed he does not plan to stay in front of the camera indefinitely and believes he only has "three years" left in Hollywood, but may turn to producing films instead.
He told Australian TV show 60 Minutes: "I've really enjoyed the producerial side and getting stories to the plate that may have had a harder time otherwise."
Despite being keen to step behind the camera, Brad - who raises children Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Zahara, six and Shiloh, five and three-year-old twins with Angelina Jolie - has previously said he would not direct because he would never get to see his family.
He said: "I have no aspirations for directing. It would drive me crazy and my family crazy, I'd never see them. It would take me three years to do it. I like what I do now.
"I love cinema and I'm still watching films I was watching 20 years ago. Making films that stand, that's the goal."
