Update: Brad Pitt is very sorry he put his fans through so much with just a sentence. Pitt has now cleared off any rumors of retirement exclusively on E! News' Daily Pop.

Here's what he really meant with his 'last leg' remark. "I'm so sorry I said that. I just see it as like, there's child to young adult, there's young adult to middle-age. And then, you get over that hump of middle-age, and it's kinda downhill from there. And I was just saying I'm over that hump."


Brad Pitt, a Hollywood A-lister and people's favorite star, has hinted that he is at the 'last leg' of his career in a recent interview. The actor recently got his first Oscar for Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 drama 'Once Upon A Time in Hollywood' for portraying the role of Cliffe Booth. While this unofficial retirement might sound like a bummer to Brad Pitt's fans, that's not the case. The actor is set to appear as an assassin from Tokyo in David Leitch and Sony's 'Bullet Train.' He is also set to appear alongside Ana de Armas in 'Blonde' which is a Marilyn Monroe biopic.

During his conversation with GQ, the 58-year-old actor said, "I consider myself on my last leg, this last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?” Throughout his career, the actor and producer has been praised for his spot-on performances in movies such as 'Fight Club', 'Se7en', 'Ad Astra', 'Inglourious Basterds', and so many others. In his upcoming movie 'Bullet Train', he will share the spotlight with a star-studded cast such as Sandra Bullock, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Bad Bunny, Joey King, Zazie Beetz, Logan Lerman, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Shannon, Karen Fukuhara, and others.

The golden boy from Missouri, who moved to California at the age of 22, ended up becoming one of the most proclaimed actors ever and has charged up to $20 million for a movie. At the age of 58, and almost 6 years after his divorce from Angelina Jolie, the actor has stepped away from the excruciating spotlight and doesn't appear in the media as often as he once did. During the interview, he also talked about attending Alcoholics Anonymous Meetings after his controversial 2016 breakup and said, "I had a really cool men’s group here that was really private and selective, so it was safe." However, the fans are ready to embrace the actor in his retirement, all prepared to carry his legacy further. 


Brad Pitt fans embrace his retirement decision

Whether Brad Pitt appears on the big screen or not, his legion of fans are not going to leave his legacy high and dry. A Brad Pitt fan tweeted, "Greatly Admire #BradPitt Remember after Hurricane Katrina when he went down to LA and built homes. He is a humanitarian at heart." Another fan tweeted, "Fury and burn after Reading. He is an all round actor and one of the best."



One fan tweeted, "If Brad Pitt, truly is heading to retirement soonish, I wish him the best of luck, in his future endeavours."

The actor, throughout his career, has received many accolades. He's won two Academy Awards, a Primetime Emmy Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and two British Academy Film Awards. Reflecting on the same, one user tweeted, "#BradPitt is at a career best right now. It's better to end big than end on a whimper."



One user didn't want Brad Pitt to retire and said, "Brad Pitt tells @BritishGQ he’s on the last leg of his film career. What does this mean? How many years will he be acting still until he'll retire? 3 years? 5 years? 10 years? I don't wanna see him go.. He'll definitely go down in history as one of the greatest of all time."

Another user said, "Still think he’s underrated as a actor though. Seven, twelve monkeys, Benjamin button, fight club. All classics that stand the test of time and that’s just for starters. He’ll be fondly remembered what he does retire though #bradpitt."
