“I consider myself at the end of my career,” the actor and producer told GQ.

Brad Pitt or Frank Dubosc? Internet users have fun with the cover of GQ
Could one of these two films once again offer the statuette of best film to Brad Pitt – producer? He had been awarded in 2014 for 12 Years a Slaveby Steve McQueen, a shock work on slavery that he had supported, and he does not hide his ambition to produce quality feature films with his partner Dede Garner.
As an actor too, he looks for projects that matter, and specifies from the start of this long portrait to consider himself “end of career.” “It’s my last semester, or last term. Where do I want to go? How am I going to build it?”wonders the 58-year-old actor, Oscar winner in 2020 for his role in Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, by Quentin Tarantino. By signing for Bullet Trainan action film that allows him to let off steam on the screen, he wanted to design a popular entertainment, explains David Leitch: “In all the conversations we had with Brad, the number one goal was to make entertainment that was an escape from everyday life, a fresh and original project that made people want to come back to cinemas.”
So what will Brad Pitt do if he soon retires from acting? “I am one of those creatures who express themselves through art, answers the person concerned GQ. I just always want to create. If I do nothing, I die, in a way.” He sculpts, makes decoration for his house (especially ceramics), plays music… His portrait is to be read here, in English, illustrated with photos by Elizaveta Porodina, which have been making a lot of noise on the web for a few hours. Face frozen, piercing eyes staring at the public and surrounded by flowers, Brad Pitt appears dead on the cover of the magazine.
