You’d better get some Brad Pitt while he’s hot, as the 47-year-old movie star says he plans to call it a day as an actor when he turns 50.

‘Three years,’ Pitt told Australia’s ’60 Minutes’ of when he’ll hang up his marquee letters.

‘I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together ... getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise,’ he said.

And though his days as a leading man might be numbered, his brood of adorable kids -- Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh and twins Knox and Viv -- could still expand.


‘You know, I don’t know that we’re finished’ adopting or conceiving more tots with Angelina Jolie. ‘Those late nights are so fun when one of them’s up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something. That’s what it’s about.’

Pitt is still making the international rounds for his baseball flick ‘Moneyball,’ and will next be seen in the zombie epic ‘World War Z.’
