Angelina Jolie might have found success in the director's chair, but that doesn't mean she's inspired hubby Brad Pitt to do the same.
Ten years after the couple found love on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Brad and Angie are back in theaters together in the Jolie-directed drama By the Sea. At the film's premiere, the 51 year old actor told The Hollywood Reporter that despite admiring his wife's directorial efforts from afar, the Jolie-Pitt patriarch has absolutely no aspirations of his own.
"No, not at all. I have no desire whatsoever," Pitt admitted.
Funny enough, the hunky-as-ever movie star who said back in 2011 that he was going to give it three more years and then move behind the scenes when he turned 50.
"I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together," Pitt told Australia's 60 Minutes at the time. "Getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times otherwise."
Mission accomplished, as his executive-producing efforts have already included 2014 Best Picture Oscar winner 12 Years a Slave. (But what do you know, maybe once he got to 50 he was happy to find out that the camera still loves him.)
His production company Plan B Entertainment also put Selma, World War Z and his upcoming financial-crisis drama The Big Short on the map—and Pitt told THR he's liking his "own corner of the field."
And that's perfectly OK if he wants to produce but not direct, because his Oscar-winning lady seems to have it all figured out. By the Sea is the 40-year-old Jolie's third directorial effort film, following last year's acclaimed Unbroken and 2011's romantic war drama In the Land of Blood and Honey.
