Brad Pitt's plan: Quit acting, maybe add to brood

Tabloid editors are celebrating today: Brad Pitt revealed to Australia’s “60 Minutes,” via E! News, that he and partner Angelina Jolie might add to their brood.

The 47-year-old actor also said, in three years, he’d like to quit acting and take a seat behind the camera.

"I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together," he said. "Getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times [sic] otherwise."

Brad must be serious because this isn’t the first time we’ve heard his and Angelina’s plan to ease out of the spotlight. Jolie laid their exit plan out in August, saying she prefers mothering to acting.

Also in Papa Pitt’s plans: more babies. Maybe.

"You know, I don't know that we're finished," the father of six replied when asked if he and Angelina would expand their family. "I don't know yet. I don't know."

Brad elaborated on the joys of fatherhood, saying he “obviously” loves the chaos involved with parenting half a dozen kids. "Those late nights are so fun when one of them's up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something,” he says. “That's what it's about."

    They should have a brad-angelina lottery in africa. Every kid between the ages of 1-5 gets a number. Your number is picked, you get to spend the rest of your life as a king and you get to call the hottest woman on the planet "mom". Good for them, I'm for anyone who helps impoverished children.

      You meant that two persons in the picture are ugly. Yep, they are ugly inside and outside. They are real phonies and hypocrites. They donate a tiny portion of their wealth for publicity.
      In fact, they are very greedy. They just want to get attention when they made an announcement.. They are overpaid. They won’t easily.give up their $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Yes, please do retire from acting to have more babies your nannies care for. We do not care! She has never made a decent movie, you haven't in years Bradley. Please take your drugs and your freak show baby mama to a more proper venue...a circus! You are so 90's, early 90's at that!

    Hhhhmmmm.... when did he START acting? I must have missed something since he is possibly one of the most untalented things on the silver screen.

    Im sorry but I just cant stand angelina jolie or any movie she jas ever made. Maybe guys like her for her looks but im not a guy. Her acting is just miserably bad.

      Sorry, but her acting is a heck of alot better than the stupid silly ones of Jennifer Aniston. If you can't stand her movies, why do you care to read about her and comment? Nothing better to do?

      Angelina's only talent is "Flirting with MEN". That's why some (Not all) men like her.

    I could care less. They certainly can afford to retire.

      A little bitter there, eater? And of course you "care," if you didn't, you would not have bothered with the article much less posting about it.

    I admire Brad and Angie, but how many times are they going to announce that they are giving up acting. Everytime Jolie says she's giving it up, she's filming a movie. Now Brad is doing the same thing. Enough already!! When you actually quit then let us know.
