So is he or isn’t he? Just days after Brad Pitt told Australia’s 60 Minutes that he’s quitting the acting game in three years when he turns 50,  he’s doing some serious back-tracking. The 47-year-old actor reiterated that he won’t be done with moviemaking at age 50; he’ll just transition to roles behind the lens. “I wasn’t actually putting an exact deadline on my expiration date [in Australia’s 60 Minutes interview], but I see it coming,” Brad told reporters at a press conference promoting Moneyball in South Korea. “I just have other interests and I do quite enjoy the production side,” he said. In fact, the mega hunk says he’s quite content with growing older — especially with Angelina Jolie and their six kids by his side–and went so far as to say that he actually enjoys aging! (Must be easy to say when you’re still a hottie and aging as gracefully as he is). “With age comes wisdom and I have said it before and I say it again, I will take wisdom over youth any day,” he said. “I think certainly, being a father has changed everything for me as far as perspective and interest, taking care of myself and wanting to be around for them.”

Dad to Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and Vivienne and Knox, 3, Brad told 60 Minutes he doesn’t mind chasing after his children as he grows older. “Those late nights are so fun when one of them’s up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something,” he told 60 Minutes of parenting their large brood. “That’s what it’s about.” Here he makes it pretty evident that he’s hot, happenin’, and here to stay in these dapper Tom Ford shades.  –rpuccia
