Brad Pitt Goes Global Green -- Part II

Brad Pitt Goes Global Green -- Part II

Here’s the second batch of Brad Pitt pictures (Part I here) from Global Green USA’s first house project at the Holy Cross Neigborhood association project in New Orleans’s hard-hit Ninth Ward District in Louisiana.

“There’s so much of this culture here that is unlike any other city that we have,” he said. “It’s a feeling that I can’t quite explain, but I love being a part of it.”

Continued Brad, “It’s hard to find an overall victory when you see how slowly everything is still moving. And Katrina was a man-made disaster. This house is a man-made solution.”

“We knew we couldn’t bring back the families and friends that were lost, bring back the heirlooms, the pictures,” Pitt added. “But maybe, in the process of rebuilding, we could build something smarter, and create a better way of life for those people who live here.”

    Brangelina is about to invade the Hamptons.

    I can exclusively tell you that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be hitting New York’s über-rich beach getaway for an intimate dinner to raise funds for Pitt’s work in helping rebuild Katrina-devastated New Orleans.

    The soiree will be hosted by two Tribeca Film Festival cofounders, superproducer Jane Rosenthal and her businessman husband Craig Hatkoff.

    Pitt is currently in the Big Easy promoting his efforts. Ann Curry recently interviewed him for the Today show, which will air the chat in two parts tomorrow and Thursday.

    And this isn’t the last we’ll be hearing from Mr. Pitt in New Orleans. I’m told he has several more projects in the works, but they won’t be announced until a later date.
    =================================================================

    Thank you Jesus.

  • Hiya

  • fan

    why argue with this fanatic of brad if she believes brad do gooder label is more honest than angelina that’s on her, however i really doubt brad would be with a woman and have children by a woman who hated america and doing hummaritarian issues for pr purposes.Once again these so call fans of brad must think he is a stupid and naive man to be with a woman who didn’t share his beliefs and causes,and since they know everything brad i’m sure they read brad many interviews were he PRAISED angelina’s hummaritaribn efforts and how she inspired him-revisiont history aint playing in here.

    When it will be that? The dinner i mean?

  • *SJ*

    Oh shut up, Brad.

    You didn’t lose anything, or anyone. You have many houses, a family, children and you think you can get away with this?

    Walking around the ruined areas for a good photo opportunity, and then returning to your multimillion dollar lifestyle with Angie and the kids.

    I am absolutely disgusted in this man. Maybe if he gave his next pay cheque to a be spread out between families in New Orleans who HAVE lost everything, I might take him seriously.

    By Russell McCulley

    NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) – Calling Hurricane Katrina a “man-made disaster,” actor Brad Pitt said on Tuesday he remains committed to helping the city recover from the storm.

    Nearly two years after the August 29, 2005 hurricane, the “Ocean’s Thirteen” star said he was at times dismayed by the pace of recovery in New Orleans, where he and partner Angelina Jolie own an elegant townhouse in the historic French Quarter.

    Pitt was in the Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood to tour an ecologically sustainable single-family home being built by Global Green USA, an environmental group he backs.

    The actor praised the house in the Holy Cross area of the ward as a “small victory” for efforts to rebuild the city, but said, “it’s hard to find an overall victory when you see how slowly everything is still moving. And Katrina was a man-made disaster. This house is a man-made solution.”

    Pitt said the city’s flood-protection defenses must be restored before displaced residents feel confident enough to rebuild.

    “We’ve got to push to get these levees taken care of in the correct fashion,” he told reporters at a news conference in the hurricane-ravaged working class neighborhood.

    The house that Pitt toured, loosely modeled on the distinctive New Orleans “shotgun” style of long, narrow homes, will generate almost all its electricity from 28 roof-mounted solar panels, said Global Green USA president Matt Petersen

    Global Green hopes to use the house, which should be completed this fall, as a prototype for the neighborhood. Built not far from the banks of the Mississippi River and raised by three feet on concrete pilings, it is above sea level.

    Some in the area, which was not as badly flooded as others in the city, are rebuilding. But a lack of funds have kept most from starting fresh.

    Levee repairs are ongoing and engineers differ over how the new levees will fare in a major storm.

    The environmental group has pledged to create a residential community of “green” structures, including an 18-unit, low-income apartment building near the Mississippi.

    Pitt, 43, said the redevelopment project could help encourage people whose homes were destroyed in the storm to return and rebuild in a more environmentally conscious fashion.

    “We knew we couldn’t bring back the families and friends that were lost, bring back the heirlooms, the pictures,” Pitt said. “But maybe, in the process of rebuilding, we could build something smarter, and create a better way of life for those people who live here.”

  • fan

    I want to add brad’s first interview with ann curry in nola, brad said that since he NOW have children he felt a responsibility to help other children because his children were very lucky, that having children change his perspective.

  • bdj

    Wow 3 threads. Thanks Just Jared. You are the man. Thanks for all the links, videos and articles. It is good that New Orleans is getting some much needed spotlight in a good way. So many times the media focus on the problems in the City. It is good to focus on hope and rebuiding. I wish the same for the entire Gulf Region affected by hurricanes. Thanks again Just Jared.

    SHUT-UP..WHERE IS YOUR CONTRIBUTION.

    Go complaint to those who have money and are planning to take it with them. You the Leona Hemsley, the X factor, etc…etc…

    The guy is not only funding this project but he is giving his time and taking time out of his schedule to make sure it is done right. What the hell are you doing aside from bitching or getting your kicks on a fan blog? Loser.

  • T&L

    Brad has a mighty heart – thanks for caring for the people on NO – he doesn’t have to yet he does more than those in charge of helping. Love you [ok, I love my honey first, but he comes in a very close second]… and Pic # 5 is to DIE FOR he is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS with capital letters! I truly envy Angelina. :mrgreen:

  • SJ

    Oh you Brangelooonies need therapy. And fast.

  • thanks Jared

    He is doing something worthwhile with his life and helping others. Angie has been a great influence on him. I knew he was interested in helping others before he got with Angelina, but now he’s taken his committment to a whole new level.

    I respect them for all that they are doing in New Orleans. The goverment gave up and left the people stranded. This gives me hope that maybe things will ge better in New Orleans.

    I like poeple doing some real social related projects on their spare time, it’s really fulfilling and rewarding. It has even a better meaning to me when those people are beautiful as beauty always give the misperception that people who are blessed with it can take it for granted, are vain and rest on it by doing mostly stuff related to vanity and appearances to cater their physique instead of their minds or doing something worth of interest like helping others.

    I like that very much. My sisters and I used to do that since our teenage years for some african little projects and we actually want to launch a little program for generic medicine for poorer people to fight pandemic malaria in certain area of a big central african country. Poeple think we are models because of our frame and beauty and are always stunned that we are several times graduate, are MBA’s beholders and cater more for our intellect… that’s how we were raised…that’s something I liked from Angie : she never puts her beauty in front of everything and his humble with it. She could have easily wore the bimbo persona but she didn’t rest on her physical appearance alone and has a brain and a mind.

    For people who get involved in those type of projects it really gives you a sense of reward and self fulfillment feeling so way to go papa Pitt !!! I know that happy, content feeling and that big smile of yours…that’s what fulfillment and when you sense you are trully helping others gives you : pure simple joy !

    Adding his profile will bring publicity to the project and even more financial support. His contribution is more than a cheque. There will be many cheques and public awareness will be improved. Can’t beat that!

    “My family and I are very happy to be back here in this great city. We love it here very much,” said Pitt, who settled in New Orleans with Angelina Jolie and their children earlier this year while he was filming The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    I like the way he refers to his family. It just gives a warm feeling.

    Way to go dad Brad. I am impressed by the way he has grown into this adoring father and partner,, he is just hands on and always there. He talks about his family with pride. Comparing his pictures now and those of someone who shall forever remain nameless you just cant help but see his life has meaning. It seems full as opposed to having him pictured hanging out in some beach somewhere over and over again.
