Brad Pitt Clarifies Quitting Remark: 'I Want To Produce'

UPDATE: Brad Pitt has clarified his comments, saying that he is interested in producing films.

Just like his partner, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has put a timestamp on his acting career.

During an interview with Australia's "60 Minutes," one of the most respected and recognizable figures in Hollywood said he wants to call it quits in three years.

Brad, no! What about all the good times? What about the pranks? What about saving random ladies' lives on-set?

What will happen once Brad Pitt bows out from acting?

"Hell if I know," said the "Moneyball" star. "I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together. And getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise."

Of course, as he's mentioned before, he's got another job: Being a dad.

He spoke about having most the famous family ever but also how they're forced to "live behind a gate." He also referenced their talked-about household silliness.

"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."

But his fatherly duties have also influenced his career moves.

"If I'm choosing a film now, I want it to be maybe less immature than things I have done in the past. I'm very conscious, when they're adults I want it to mean something to them. I want them to think, "Dad’s alright." It changes everything. Everything. And it's so damn interesting."

It certainly is, Brad -- don't go!
