Just kidding! That's Brad Pitt's latest response to recent comments that he planned to quit acting in three years.

"I wasn't actually putting an exact deadline on my expiration date, but I see it coming," Pitt, 47, told reporters in Korea while on an international tour to promote his baseball movie Moneyball. The actor did acknowledge he has a definite interest in doing more on the producing side in the future and would like to focus on "complex stories that might have difficulty getting made in the current system or getting behind the talent they might be needing."

The latest comments follow an interview that aired Sunday on Australia's 60 Minutes in which the actor was asked how much longer he would like to keep acting. "Three years," he responded, while adding that he'd like to focus more on the production side of the business.

Pitt -- who arrived in Seoul alone after visiting Japan and Vietnam with Angelina Jolie and their children last week -- also spoke about his feelings on getting older. "I personally like aging -- with aging comes wisdom, and I’ll take wisdom over youth any day." He also said that being a father has "changed everything" in his life and has made him want to take better care of himself for his children.
