I enjoy watching a movie starring Brad Pitt just as much as the next person, but what I don’t enjoy is listening to him wax philosophical off-camera about what happiness is and how he’ll probably quit acting in three years. That sh*t’s just obnoxious.
Pitt did just this in Australia’s 60 Minutes, discussing his large family and the meaning of life, according to New York’s Daily News. “Three years,” Pitt said. “Hell if I know [what I'll do next]. I’m really enjoying the producorial side and development of stories, and putting those pieces together, and getting those stories to the plate that might have had a tougher time otherwise.”
Pitt claimed that happiness is “overrated,” and that he’d rather focus on “peace” and satisfaction. “I think sometimes you’re happy, sometimes you’re not,” the Moneyball star, explained. “There’s too much pressure to be happy. I don’t really give a s—. I know I will be at times. And I know I won’t be at times.”
