Hollywood star Brad Pitt is said to be aiming for “semi-retirement”.

Does Hollywood have to worry about one of its figureheads? Brad Pitt is said to be thinking about “semi-retirement” – but what does that mean?


the essentials in brief

  • Brad Pitt is one of the most charismatic actors Hollywood has to offer.
  • But will the 59-year-old soon be retiring from the business?
  • According to an insider, he should think about a “semi-retirement”.

At 59, actor Brad Pitt is still a long way from the traditional retirement age. The star is said to be thinking specifically about his first step towards retirement. This is what the US site “Page Six” claims to have learned from a confidant of the actor.

“Brad wants to live a peaceful life from now on and is in the process of deciding what ‘semi-retirement’ might look like for him.” This is how the source is quoted.

One indication is that Pitt sold 60 percent of his shares in the production company Plan B to a French media company. Pitt founded Plan B in 2001 with his then-wife Jennifer Aniston (53). He has been the sole owner since the divorce in 2005.

Plan B contributed to the fact that films like “The Departed”, “12 Years a Slave” or “She Said” could be realized. The takeover sum was a mid three-digit million amount “less than 500 million dollars”, reported “CNBC”.

Brad Pitt: Also acting over?

With this sale, Brad Pitt’s career as a film and series producer seems to have been affected by the alleged “semi-retirement”. But is the star also thinking about saying goodbye to the big screen?

From another supposed insider, “Page Six” wanted to hear the star’s mind games that could indicate this: “He’s considering turning his back on Hollywood. He also wants to move to France to run his winery and make art and furniture. He just wants to live in peace.”

At the same time, however, it also means that Brad Pitt does not plan to implement this project in the immediate future. Rather, he continues to be an actor with full passion and that will not change in the foreseeable future. Pitt will deliver the latest sample in the cinema in a few days: Damien Chazelle’s film “Babylon” will be shown in Germany on January 19, in which Pitt will play the leading role alongside Margot Robbie.
