Brad Pitt @ Clinton Global Initiative

Brad Pitt @ Clinton Global Initiative

Brad Pitt speaks before a panel discussion on energy and climate change during the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting Wednesday in New York City. The conference is focused on finding ways to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems including poverty and climate change.

According to People, Brad is partnering with billionaire Steve Bing on the “Make it Right” program, which plans to build 150 affordable – and environmentally sustainable – homes in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward. Brad and Bing have each promised to match donations pledged during the initiative up to $5 million.

FYI: It costs $15,000 per person to take part in the panel discussions and smaller working sessions at the CGI. $15K!!!!! I hope it all goes to charity…

    So proud of them!!!!!!! Can’t wait til Angie turn to speak.

  • Fug Face Man!ston

    damn you, just turn this ish into a fcuking fan site.

  • Jen

    Go away Brad!!! I bet Ang wrote his speech!!! This guy is such a fraud he morphs into whatever the woman he’s with is into. I don’t even think he knows who he is. If he’s so worried quit driving around in SUV’s, get a hybyrd, quit flying private jets, fly commercial, and donate/adopt poverty stricken American, then I’d be impressed!!!

  • Anonymous

    Obviously he didn’t raise much money from all those rich folks in the Hamptons. When is he going to announce that. I would have thought he would get millions there.

  • Jen

    Galia, More celebs do charity work, they just don’t flaunt it to get attention!!!!!!

  • shasta

    What a guy. Absolutely adore him.

  • Joel
  • Yay

    Repost from last thread:

    Congrats to Brad & Angelina who are slowly but surely making a name for their foundation with their busy schedules and all.

    Having a foundation with both their names on seems more permanent than a marriage certificate would.

  • Francophile

    He has grown so much during the last years.

  • http://deleted style

    WHAT BRAD WANT? HE WANT MAKE THE SAME THAT ANGIE??
    HE IS IN THE SOLIDARITY BUSSINES BECAUSE HE MET ANGIE, HE ONLY WAS CARES ABOUT HIS HOUSE HIS WIFE AND HIS MOM, WELL NOW HE CARES ABOUT HIS KIDS HIS MOM HIS X AND THE SOLIDARITY.ONLY SOME CHANGES SINCE THAT TIME.
    BRAD IS HOT, BUT IS SO SO SELFISH PERSON REALLY.

  • MMM

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Probably the 5 million he’s pretending to give out of his pocket are from the foundraising at the Hamptons.

  • Ignore

    IGNORE TROLLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • WOW

    WOW! What a man! Brad sure loves helping people in need and at the same time, executing his skills and love for architecture. He is enjoying his life that he never before. We love you, Brad, very much! And good luck!

  • ntt

    Thanks, Jared for a new thread. I am glad Brad is standing up for New Orleans. It’s a beautiful city, full of history, and unique for its culture. It’s a part of the American heritage, we need to cherish it, and preserve it for the next generations.

  • http://justjared anonymous

    Any contribution helps. I cannot believe that so many children are on line! And yes we know you are children, by the childish and ridiculous comments you post. Shouldn’t you be in school? They do good, give it a rest!

  • tammy

    You go brad ,you look great.thanks jared.

  • http://deleted please

    God bless the Jolie-Pitts.

  • Brad FAn

    He was probably so excited. Good for him. Can’t wait for Angelina. I can see her wearing a Saint John suit for this.

  • JenJen

    I bet some of the monies if not all collected from today’s panelists will be part of rebuilding houses for NO people.

  • marcia

    Besides being a very HANDSOME guy, he’s intelligent, sensitive and really really HOT! Love him

  • tammy

    13 joel: thanks for the post.

  • trolls are mentally disturb

    He was so dead on.
    GO Brad!

  • ashley.

    I really thought he sounded great. I know they believe in what they say, I do too.

  • farran

    Brad spoke elegantly,he was a little nervous but he was elegant.

  • whatever

    THEY ARE NOT GREEN AT ALL !!!! THIS IS COMPLETE FICTION !!!! They take private jets everywhere ?!?! JJ only cares about the photoshoot not the content. They should have made it a fashion show instead, that would have been more sincere.

  • WTF?

    Eww Ted Turner is speaking. Let me stop. He donated over 100 million to UN programs, so you can’t really really not like him. Just a little bit. LOL!!

  • Andrómeda

    Thanks JJ for this thread. Is a good cause. I hope they can raise enough money…

  • Ameena

    Thanks Jared for the new thread, hopefully we will have the video later. Brad and Angie have become a force to be reckon with. It is hilarious while the rags are printing lies; these two are going on with their lives, donating money for the causes they believe in. God Bless them.

  • TROLLS ARE MENTALLY DISTURB

    An Internet troll, or simply troll in Internet slang, is someone who intentionally posts controversial or contrary messages in an online community such as an online discussion forum, with the intention of baiting users into an argumentative response

  • amle

    When i see Brad trying to act intelligent, I have to laugh. We all know he is dumb as a box of rocks.

  • angelah

    Yes I finally got my V copy..

    Oh I missed it, is this segment going to be available on line or even Angie’s?

  • Thank You

    I hope someone was able to capture Brad’s speech and upload it Youtube for those of us who missed it . And the same for Angie. My computer will not play CGI’s video link.
    DARN! DARN! DARN!

    ———–
    SENSITIVE?
    THE MOTHER OF HIS KIDS WAS ATACKED SINCE MONTHS, AND HE PUT MORE SHIT IN HER TO TABLOIDS, SPEAK ABOUT HIS DEEP FRIEDSHIP WITH HIS X, DEFENDS HER MOTHER, HE IS COLD IN THE RC WITH ANGIE,NO SPEAK ABOUT HER, DON´T DENIED THE BREAK UP AND BACK WITH X RUMORS AND MORE.
    IS THAT SENSITIVE GUY???
    ANGELINA OPEN YOUR EYES AND LEAVE HE, SHE WILL FOUND SOMEONE THAT DEFEND HER, SPEAK LOVELY ABOUT HER, AND LOVE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE HER.
    BRAD IS A SELFISH PERSON

  • jordan

    Brad looks great and hot,Can`t wait for Angie.Ican`t hear his speech cause I don`t have speaker here but every one said that was very good.GOOD FOR THIS COUPLE,THEY ARE GROWING IN FRONT OF MANY PEOPLE AS PEOPLE WHO CARE VERY MUCH ABOUT GLOBAL ISSUE.

  • NaNa

    Brad presentation was good to see.
    He said what should be said and also funy.
    The 5M USD plege Brad promised, I believe, will come from Jolie-pitt foundation (he was presented as a co-chair of JP foundation). I think now both Angie and Brad put their money in three part:1/3 for humanitarian issues (JP foundation), 1/3 for children (Mondo bongo?? -not sure of the name) trust and 1/3 for them to use.

    As someone mentioned here what they (JP) are doing is way better than marriage certificate.

    Whatever tabloids say and/or whatever trolls say, does not matter. As Angie said in one of her interviews, what will remain in the long-run will be what they have accomplished. And they have accomplished a lot: stable home, good children and their humanitarian work.

  • ?

    Maybe he is going to attend Angie`s pres confrence.

  • Sasha

    amie,
    “He is dumb as a box of rocks”
    THIS IS MOST STUPID COMMENTS I HAVE HEARD OFF IN ALL MY 30 YEARS BEING ON THIS EARTH WHICH BY THE WAY IS MADE UP OF ROCKS.
    EVEN A BOX OF ROCK HAS A PURPOSE IN THIS WORLD.
    ROCKS IS WHAT BRAD IS MADE OFF. HE IS SOLID AND LAYS THE FOUNDATION TO ANYTHING HE SEES IMPORTANT TO HIS FAMILY AND TO THIS WORLD OF OURS.
    I WONDER WHAT YOU’RE MADE OFF?….I DONT WANT TO BEGIN TO TELL YOU .
    HATERS LEAVE THIS THREAD NOW…..

  • ntt

    Did B&A attend this forum last year? I can’t remember. I know they did in 2005.
