    Fans of Brad Pitt might be disappointed to hear the actor claim that he's on his "last leg" when it comes to his acting career.

    During a lengthy interview for GQ magazine's upcoming July/August issue, the 58-year-old actor talked about life after his divorce from ex-wife actress Angelina Jolie, his path to sobriety, and his plans to take the helm when it comes to what the writer called the "final stages of" the leading man's career. The outlet posted the cover story in a piece published Wednesday.

    "I consider myself on my last leg," Pitt explained. "This last semester or trimester. What is this section gonna be? And how do I wanna design that?"

    "Out here in California," he added. "There's a lot of talk about 'being your authentic self.' It would plague me, what does 'authentic' mean? [For me] it was getting to a place of acknowledging those deep scars that we carry."

    These days, the superstar has been wearing his producer hat as he talks about the upcoming projects his production company, Plan B Entertainment, is working on. But fear not, the "Fight Club" star isn't done with acting and the big screen just yet. He has taken on roles when the time is right.

    His next film, which is due out in August, is titled "Bullet Train." Per IMDb, the film is about "five assassins aboard a fast moving bullet train" who "find out their missions have something in common."

    Pitt is also starring in Damien Chazelle's "Babylon," which is in post-production and due out later this year, as well as an untitled project with former co-star George Clooney that is in pre-production.

    "I'm one of those creatures that speaks through art," Pitt explained. "I just want to always make. If I'm not making, I'm dying in some way."

    In 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from the "Troy" star, and the two were legally declared single in 2019. Pitt said after Jolie filed for divorce, he spent a year and half going to Alcoholics Anonymous, where he participated in a "really cool men's group" that was "really private and selective, so it was safe."

    "Because I'd seen things of other people who had been recorded while they were spilling their guts, and that's just atrocious to me," the legendary actor shared.

    Pitt's career spans more than three decades, with such notable films as "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," "Moneyball," and the "Ocean's Eleven" franchise, among many others.
