Brad Pitt Retires From Acting To Pursue A $1.5 Billion Real Estate Project Amid Angelina Jolie Divorce Talks?
Is Brad Pitt leaving Hollywood as he and wife Angelina Jolie continue to face rumors of an impending divorce? According to a new report, the father of six is looking to retire from the limelight as he pursues a $1.5 billion real estate venture in Croatia.
Following news of Pitt’s eco-friendly resort on the Adriatic coast in Croatia, a report claims the 52-year-old actor may be retiring from acting after hinting for years that he is “no longer interested” in filmmaking and suggested Pitt “already has one foot out the door.”
“It should come as no surprise that Brad Pitt is looking to retire from the limelight altogether and invest his fortune in a new project instead,” Celebrity Dirty Laundry revealed to readers on September 8. “Brad Pitt knows that his days in Hollywood are numbered and that there’s a good chance that he won’t be getting the same film roles and offers he received during the peak of his popularity.”

While the outlet claimed that Brad Pitt’s wife, Jolie, 41, was still continuing on with her career as an actress, they suggested that Pitt simply doesn’t want to spend the rest of his career making “mediocre films that will taint his reputation and bomb at the box office.” The outlet also noted that Pitt and Jolie’s latest project, By The Sea, was “universally panned by critics.”
On September 8, Gossip Cop responded to Celebrity Dirty Laundry’s report, revealing that Brad Pitt has a handful of movies in post-production and is slated to begin shooting a sequel to World War Z in the coming months. In addition, the outlet noted, Brad Pitt is a producer with his own company, Plan B Entertainment, which has several film projects currently in the works. So, when it comes to Brad Pitt’s retirement, the accusations are simply “not true.”
Earlier this week, People Magazine confirmed that Brad Pitt had traveled to the site of his upcoming luxury resort in Croatia, where he was spotted taking a boat tour of the coast and walking on foot to see the area where the hotel will be located.

Brad Pitt and his wife, Angelina Jolie, have had ties to Croatia since 2012 when Jolie revealed their plans to buy a home in the area. At the time, a source said the famous couple was looking at a luxurious villa in Istria, a location that was recommended to them by Croatian actor Rade Serbedzija.
As Brad Pitt’s real estate project gets underway, he and wife Jolie continue to face rumors regarding their potentially upcoming split. Although Pitt and Jolie just celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary, a recent report claimed the couple was struggling.
“Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s marriage is in trouble two years after they tied the knot,” Celebrity Dirty Laundry told readers last week. “There’s new speculation that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s love life is in desperate need of a new spark and that’s why the couple is doing anything to avoid divorce as their passion evaporates.”
“Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s marriage isn’t your typical Hollywood union,” the outlet continued. “Brangelina has a reputation to uphold as Hollywood’s golden couple and that’s why they are working hard to avoid a divorce despite speculation that the passion in their sex lives has long evaporated.”
Again, Gossip Cop set the record straight, revealing that Brad Pitt’s marriage was not in need of a spark.
