Brad Pitt to quit acting in 3 years


Brad Pitt says that he will quit acting in three years, when he turns 50.

The 47-year-old star suggested that he might move behind the camera when he steps out of the limelight, but he was confident that his days as a leading man were numbered.

'I've really enjoyed the producerial [sic] side and getting stories to the plate that may have had a harder time otherwise,' the Daily Mail quoted him as telling 60 Minutes, an Australian chat show.

When challenged as to what he would do after he quits acting, he jokingly said, 'Hell if I know!'

The star also said happiness is overrated and being at peace was a more realistic aim. 'I think happiness is overrated. Sometimes you're happy, sometimes you're not. There's too much pressure to be happy. I don't give a st. I know I will be happy sometimes and I won't be at times. Being at peace is more of a goal for myself,' he added.

Meet Leo's latest love

Leonardo DiCaprio has apparently set his sights on Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss.

The 37-year-old actor, who is back in Australia for filming The Great Gatsby after a promotional trip to the US, reportedly attended the after-party that followed last week's Victoria's Secret lingerie show in New York and it looked as if model Kloss is the latest beauty to catch his attention.

'(He) walked back and forth three times at the party looking for prospects at the table cluttered with VS models but after no luck, he settled at the bachelors end of the room lady-less before Kloss caught his attention. He couldn't take his eyes off her,' the Daily Telegraph quoted a spy as telling the New York Post.

Single since last month when Gossip Girl's Blake Lively reportedly dumped him, DiCaprio certainly doesn't seem to be wasting time searching for a new lady mate.
