Actor says he’s too obsessive to be behind the camera

BRAD PITT has ruled out a career in directing - because he's convinced his obsessive attention to detail would drive him mad.

The Ocean's Eleven star has enjoyed an acting career spanning two decades and is convinced he will always stay in front of the camera.

He tells Britain's OK! magazine, "To be a director you have to be a real perfectionist. I would get mad. I'd rather build houses. It's very similar to directing, actually, because you're inside this piece of art, you're surrounded by it."
