Brad Pitt says he might be bowing out of movies — or at least appearing in them, anyway — which could be a big mistake, ’cause the guy’s still as magnetic as ever … just look at this!
Here’s the legendary A-lister hobnobbing on a boat while cruising the Seine River in Paris this weekend … the first stop for his latest press run to plug his new film, ‘Bullet Train’ — a high-voltage action flick that sees Brad fighting bad guys in and out of transit in Tokyo.
While the movie looks great — it’s actually just the second flick he’s headed up as a straight-on lead in at least a few years. Yes, he had a supporting role in ‘The Lost City,’ which was hilarious, but before that … it was ‘Ad Astra’ way back in 2019 when he got top billing.
As fans of his have certainly noticed, he’s been doing a lot less films in recent years — picking and choosing roles wisely … which paid off with an Oscar 2 years ago.
But it’s also a sign of his movie stardom slow-down. He addressed this recently in a GQ interview … saying he figured he was on his “last leg” of acting, going on to say he was in the final stretch of that particular chapter — and musing on what might be next for him.
The dude’s got his Plan B production co., which continues to crank out great films with accolades to boot … but on the thespian front, this might be one of his ultimate go-arounds.
He’s got a few more gigs on the horizon, it seems — but if this is, in fact, a closing glimpse of him doing the Hollywood thing … we gotta say, he’s going out with a bang. These shots are emblematic of what many have said about Brad’s on-screen presence — home boy’s just got it, even at his age now. Take a gander through these pics … they’re gold.
Assuming Brad is walking away from acting, he’s got quite the resume to be proud of — so many great projects over the years, and a helluva career. ‘Bullet Train’ hits theaters Aug. 5.
