As his 48th birthday approaches, actor Brad Pitt feels he may no longer be the first guy to be picked for roles and might have to hang his boots pretty soon. “We have a shelf life, no question. And mine’s coming. But there’s a few more things I want to do before my shelf life expires,” News.com.au quoted the actor as saying.
“I want to play the grumpy old man who swears,” he said.
The Moneyball star said that that he will not prolong his time in the business as his mate George Clooney has done by turning to directing. “I have no aspirations whatsoever. I’d make a good movie, but it’d take me three years of agonising and pain and sweat, and I wouldn’t see my family. A film is a big commitment as far as your time, your life... I don’t know how much time I have left and I just want it to matter,” he added.
