Not so fast!

Just days after Brad Pitt told Australia's 60 Minutes that he'd continue acting for "three more years," the 47-year-old actor confirms that he won't be done with moviemaking at age 50; he'll just transition to roles behind the lens.

"I wasn't actually putting an exact deadline on my expiration date [in Australia's 60 Minutes interview], but I see it coming," Pitt told reporters at a press conference promoting Moneyball in South Korea. "I just have other interests and I do quite enjoy the production side," he said.

In fact, the mega star says he's quite content with growing older -- especially with Angelina Jolie and their six kids by his side.

"Me, personally I like ageing. With age comes wisdom and I have said it before and I say it again, I will take wisdom over youth any day," he reasoned. "I think certainly, being a father has changed everything for me as far as perspective and interest, taking care of myself and wanting to be around for them."

Dad to Maddox, 10, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5, and Vivienne and Knox, 3, Pitt told Australia's 60 Minutes he doesn't mind chasing after his children as he grows older.

"Those late nights are so fun when one of them's up or those mornings when they get up and make pancakes or something," he told 60 Minutes of parenting their large brood. "That's what it's about."
