Talking points

Brad Pitt

Pitt to quit acting?

Brad Pitt says he wants to retire from acting at age 50. “Three years,” the 47-year-old actor declares to the Australian edition of “60 Minutes.” “I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together.” Pitt has apparently had the end of his acting career on his mind lately, as he recently told Culture magazine, “We all have a shelf life, and mine is coming.” But Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie aren’t necessarily planning to quit expanding their family. “You know, I don’t know that we’re finished. I don’t know yet. I don’t know,” he admits.

Middleton can’t move on

Pippa Middleton is reportedly having a harder time dealing with her breakup from Alex Loudon than expected, according to the Sun. “Pippa tried to get over the split by spending last weekend with [William and Kate] at Balmoral,” a source says. “She and Alex split briefly in the summer, but this time it’s over. They are barely speaking.” That might explain why she canceled plans to attend the high-profile Square Mile Masked Ball next week.

Stern in talks for ‘Talent’

With Piers Morgan bowing out of “America’s Got Talent,” shock jock Howard Stern is reportedly in talks to replace him as a judge on the talent competition, according to The Associated Press. Sources say Stern is being offered about $15 million a year to join judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne. There’s little rush, though, as judges aren’t needed until February.
