Despite two big films, Brad Pitt says career is on ‘last leg’

As Brad Pitt’s career seems to be in full swing, the actor is trying to relax.

Two years away from accepting his long-awaited acting Oscar for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, he has produced critically acclaimed films with his production company Plan B and will star in two blockbuster films this year.

But in an interview with GQ, the 58-year-old actor spoke of having reached the final chapter of his career.

“I consider myself on my last leg,” Pitt said, “in this final semester or trimester. What will this section be? And how do I want to do that?”

The statement comes weeks before Pitt will star in David Leitch’s “Bullet Train,” based on Kōtarō Isaka’s novel of the same name. Pitt plays a hardened assassin and is supported by a star cast that includes Sandra Bullock, Joey King and Bad Bunny, among others. The film hits theaters on August 5th.

Pitt is also set to star in Damien Chazelle’s Babylon alongside Margot Robbie this Christmas.

Pitt’s Plan B will release two eye-catching films this year: Andrew Dominik’s Blonde, a Marilyn Monroe biopic with a lively teaser trailer starring Ana De Armas, and an adaptation of Miriam Toew’s novel Women Talking, starring Frances McDormand and Rooney Mara .

The Inglourious Basterds actor’s busy schedule reflects his self-described need to produce art.

“I’m one of those creatures that speaks through art,” Pitt told GQ. “I just always want to do it. If I don’t do anything, I kind of die.”

But he also spoke about the stress that comes with his current artistic production and life in Los Angeles.

“I’m going out [of Los Angeles] and I just feel like I’m taking off a cloak or something,” he said. “Once you turn past Santa Barbara [toward Los Angeles], I feel it coming. The shoulders rise a little and I can feel it. I’m still not quite sure what this is and how to deal with it.”

Director Quentin Tarantino, who has worked with Pitt on several films, says the industry will lose a dying generation of actors.

“He’s one of the last remaining stars on the big screen,” the director told GQ. “It’s just a different race of people. And honestly I don’t think you can describe exactly what that is because it’s like describing starlight.”
