Brad Pitt has been recently spotted vacationing in Mexico with his new girlfriend Ines de Ramon, and now it has been revealed that the 59-year-old actor sold a controlling stake in his famous Hollywood production company, Plan B, in December. Insiders have already reported that Brad did so to step back from Hollywood.

Selling 60% of the company he co-founded with his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, Brad believed he wanted to live a quiet life and is now deciding how he will spend his retirement.

"Brad has decided that he wants to live a peaceful life going forward and is deciding what 'semi-retirement' looks like for him. He is considering leaving Hollywood and moving to France and doing his vineyard and art and making furniture… He just wants to live in peace," a source said.

However, the 59-year-old Pitt is not going to stop his acting career anytime soon. Although the actor devotes a lot of time to various businesses based in his French estate Chateau Miraval, which he bought with Angelina Jolie, he is committed to his film career. The winery has also been at the center of Pitt and Jolie's divorce proceedings, which are still ongoing.
