Career break? Brad Pitt wants to retire after Oscar for “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”

With his first Oscar, which Brad Pitt received as an actor, he undoubtedly had a career highlight in the night of Monday. After “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” Pitt now wants to withdraw for a while.

Actually unbelievable, but in the more than 30 years that  Brad Pitt was in front of the camera, the actor known from cult films like “Seven” and “Fight Club” received an Oscar until last week – not as an actor but as a producer ( for “12 Years A Slave”).

After “Twelve Monkeys”, “The Strange Case of Benjamin Button” and “Moneyball” it was finally time in the fourth attempt as an actor: Brad Pitt received the Oscar for best supporting actor in Quentin Tarantino’s ” Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” “. However, this does not spur the 56-year-old to go hunting for trophies all the more intensively in the future. Instead, after an award, Pitt spoke of taking a break. Once upon a time online HD.


Pitt was the first to receive his long overdue golden boy on the 92nd Oscar night. Shortly afterwards, he then dropped the bomb behind the stage, as reported by CinemaBlend :

“I think now is the time to go away for a while – and do things again,” said Brad Pitt.

What exactly the actor means by that is unclear. In his Oscar acceptance speech, among other things, his children were given special mention, to whom he might want to devote more attention in the next few years. While he was honored and also pleased with the very special award season, he also let the press know that in the future he “hopefully will have to do with other shit”. 

After films like ” Moonlight “, ” Vice “, ” Beale Street ” or Netflix’s ” The King “, Pitt has at least a few projects in the works as a producer – including the Marilyn Monroe biopic ” Blonde ” from “Mindhunter” director Andrew Dominik or ” Americanah ” with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o (“We”) as a Nigerian migrant.

As an actor, Brad Pitt’s ” Babylon ” by Damien Chazelle (“Departure to the Moon”) has only one film in the pipeline for which he is likely to be in front of the camera – and it is also not expected to be released until February 17, 2022 . So the actor’s break should last at least two years. By the way, Pitt recently appeared in the science fiction drama ” Ad Astra “.
