Among being an Academy Award-winning actor and producer, Brad Pitt is also a businessman.
With the recent lucrative sale of 60% of his production company, Plan B Entertainment, worth $300 million to French group Mediawan, Pitt is considering taking a step back from it all.
“Brad has decided that he wants to live a peaceful life going forward and is deciding what ‘semi-retirement’ looks like for him,” a source told Page Six.
“One thing he’s decided is that he will likely continue acting,” the source revealed, before cautioning that Pitt likely will step away from other business ventures.
Pitt launched a new genderless skin-care line, Le Domaine, late last year. He previously bought Château Miraval with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, which he now owns.
“While Brad has put a lot of time into the various [businesses based out of the French estate, Chateau Miraval, he bought with Angelina Jolie], and his other interests like architecture, he is absolutely committed to his film career,” an additional insider shared. “He is not leaving Hollywood.”
Another source alleged a slightly different narrative for Pitt, telling Page Six, “He is considering leaving Hollywood and moving to France and doing his vineyard and art and making furniture … He just wants to live in peace.”
Pitt can currently be seen opposite Margot Robbie in “Babylon,” in theaters now.
While the 59-year-old has several projects in the works as a producer, his starring in an unnamed Formula 1 film project is on the horizon.
