If you listen closely right now, you can probably hear the sobs of women all over the world mourning the news of Brad Pitt's impending retirement from the silver screen.
The actor, heartthrob and hero announced during an interview with Australia's 60 Minutes his plan to give up acting in three years, as it conflicts with his role as family man and hubby to Angelina Jolie.
"If I'm choosing a film now," said Pitt, "I want it to be maybe less immature than things I have done in the past. I'm very conscious, when they're adults I want it to mean something to them. I want them to think, 'Dad’s alright.' It changes everything. Everything. And it's so damn interesting."
You're right that becoming a parent changes everything, Brad. And your commitment to being a great dad is possibly the only thing that will help your legions of female fans forgive you for ending your career prematurely!
