Maybe crafting all those funny awards show speeches took too much out of him.
Brad Pitt, hot off a successful awards season capped with a coveted Academy Award win, says he’s planning on retreating to the shadows (a.k.a. not in the public’s eye).
“Right now, I think it’s time to go disappear for a little while now and get back to making things,” he told reporters backstage at the Oscars on Sunday, shortly after he nabbed the Best Supporting Actor award for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
And when asked if he was having the time of his life, Pitt kept it real, replying, “I hope not. I hope I got other s— going on.”
Indeed, he’s not slated to act in any upcoming films; Pitt will instead be producing a slew of 2020 features, including the drama Blonde starring Ana de Armas and Adrien Brody, through his Plan B Entertainment company.
Pitt continued backstage, saying, “it has been a really special run and again, it’s a community I love and friends I’ve made over 30 years, and they mean a lot to me, truly. And I feel a responsibility to that, more than anything. More than like a victory lap.”
