8. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt hasn't retired quite yet, but he gave his three years notice. He said that he plans to quit the big screen at the age of 50 in favor of a behind-the-scenes role in movies. He said about the planned switch: "I am really enjoying the producing side and development of stories and putting those pieces together... Getting stories to the plate that might have had a tougher times otherwise."
