Brad Pitt feels he has ''had his time'' with acting and thinks it is best left to a younger generation of actors
Brad Pitt has hinted he wants to quit acting.
The 45-year-old actor - who raises six children with partner Angelina Jolie - feels he has achieved almost everything he wants to do in his career and doesn't believe there are as many possibilities for him as he gets older.
He said: "I think acting is a younger man's game; there are fewer interesting parts for older people and we all get older. But I feel like I've done it. I've kind of had my time and that's quite freeing.
"Of course there are still acting dreams left for me. But I'll do them first and then we'll talk about them."
Brad and Angelina - who have homes in France, California and New Orleans - move their family with them wherever in the world they are working on a movie and the 'Inglourious Basterds' star insists it is a lifestyle with many benefits for their children,
He explained: "Everywhere is interesting in its own way, each place has its own feel and something to offer: you pick up something, the kids are picking up something. They have this world view which we are very proud and happy that we are able to provide.
"We get peace in our lives. We got out here a couple of days early with the family and we get to hang out in a place in Provence. We're pretty good at it. You carve out that time for the family. Do we get a little silence with the kids? No, not that kind of silence - silence is over at home, but we like that chaos."
