    Brad Gives Back!

    (Getty Images)

    It was a night with no shortage of celebrities, including Miley Cyrus, Carrie Underwood, Robin Williams, Snoop Dogg, Fergie and many others, but the biggest treat for the audience at Sunday night’s taping for American Idol’s second annual Idol Gives Back broadcast was none other than Brad Pitt himself.

    Though Brad’s involvement with the special, which seeks to use the hit show’s unmatched popularity to highlight and raise money for good causes around the world, had been announced at the beginning of the season, many had assumed his segment would be pre-taped and that he would not appear in person.

    But, following a video clip of the Fight Club star touring the hurricane-devastated areas in and around New Orleans and talking to the children of displaced families in the area, the hunky star walked onto the stage of Hollywood’s Kodak Theater.

    “The crowd went wild!” one audience member tells OK!. “The noise was deafening.”

    And even though the screaming fans began to quiet down after Angelina Jolie’s baby-daddy gestured for everyone to calm down, you still couldn’t hear him — but only because his microphone wasn’t working!

    This little tech snafu, which witnesses tell OK! had also happened earlier in the evening to fellow celeb guest Reese Witherspoon, was quickly remedied. And it even gave Idol’s stage manager Debbie Williams an opportunity of a lifetime. “I just needed a reason to touch him,” she joked to the audience.

    The father-to-be’s appearance on the Idol stage was brief, but he did take the time to thank the fans before he introduced a video of former Idol finalist Chris Daughtry visiting the African nation of Uganda.

    “Brad actually seemed quite shy,” one audience member tells OK! about the superstar’s cameo appearance.

    Brad looks good, but a bit tired as well.

  • pendant

    He was wearing that cross pendant with No1. DADDY pendant at Critic Choice Awards. Angie was wearing a gold bracelet which was probably given by Brad. Brad designed it using Maddox’s happy family portrait.

    The slight weight increase is for his role in Tree of Life

  • atrium

    yeah, I think the hat’s good on him, I shouda try…

  • eddie jones

    sure, they all give back, it’s called TAX WRITEOFF & PUBLICITY. Just like Angelinas foundations that disappear once the media attention is gone and the tax writeoffs are all used up. Wake up people, if you could writeoff as much money as these idiots do you’d never have to pay taxes in your life, just like these people, that’s why they do it, to DODGE TAXES. Look at what they were doing before they made all the money, were they giving what they could to these other countries, helping with charities etc… You’ll see the truth.

  • complainer

    that hat @ 04/07/2008 at 4:36 am—————the hart is not on your head then —–

    First page? Good thing I was up this early. :-) I looooooove Brad to death! He is my “He-Man” too. Same words of adulation or adoration of one young lucky female fan who saw him in person and somehow at the same time had someone take a video ( seen @ u-tube) of him and his kids at a park. That was priceless. :-)

    Thank you Jared! You are awesome!

  • Ananda

    Ha, ha, is that dude gonna wear a hat every day for the rest of his life just cause he’s going BALD?! What a dipstick.

  • Andreadoria

    Hi, I am from Germany, just saw a “Thelma and Louise” rerun last night. What a treat :-)
    I love him for the way he is and so much of his beauty is coming from within!

  • indiesr

    Awh, Mr. Pitt is looking good. Much, love :)

    from IMDb

    Tree of Life

    Plot Outline:In a mystical world of folklore, several individuals embrace in a race to find the Tree of Life, said to give immortality, fertility, and other supernatural powers

    This plotline sounds very interesting to me.
    A
    nd cinematrographer Emmanuel Lubezki worked for Burn after Reading and Meet the Joe Black. He was terrific in Marvelick’s New World and The Children of Men. Cinematrography will be major part of Tree of Life. He is the key person.

    Plan B joined this film’s producing team according to IMDb.
    Brad has been in very good films as of lately either an actor or an producer.

    Babel, TAOJJ, TCCOBB and this film are sure eye-openers.
    Brad and Angie have been steadly earning respect as actors from
    industry.

  • GreatOne

    Brad really is a genetic freak of beauty.

  • marianna

    Tisha @ 04/07/2008 at 4:57 am The slight weight increase is for his role in Tree of Life

    I don’t know why there are some people who have a hard time understand this or why his hair is cut a certain way.

    Anyway he looks great. Hopefully the show will be a success.

    I went to video shop to rent newly reeased AMH and there were also 5 newly released Cyborg 2 DVD.
    They were claiming on “ this is Angelina Jolie’s FIRST movie ”
    Wasn’t that bombed B-movie and nothing but 18 years old Angie.
    It reminded me recent 16 years old Angie’s old photos comeback.

    Troll(s) love them some Papa Pitt. Whining about his hat, examining every picture, crying over his every movements. Go on with your bad self troll. Just Jared is the right blog to feed your obsession and learn about the good works of the Jolie-Pitts.

    Specifically, Barron wrote, “I was not prepared for what I was about to see. We were taken to the Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans, less than a mile from where the levee broke. I realized how truly blessed I am. Almost three years after the disaster, it is still a deserted town. There were literally blocks upon blocks where all the homes were washed away or waiting to be bulldozed. I have never in my life seen anything like that before. … Homeless people were riding bikes everywhere with their only possessions being the clothes on their backs and the bikes they had salvaged.”

    What others say
    A look at what the media outside Louisiana are reporting on New Orleans.

    Life in the Big Easy is back to normal, at least for tourists. But I also saw another part of New Orleans — away from the bright lights and T-shirt stands — that still struggles with the overwhelming task of rebuilding.

    Ordinary people have emerged as extraordinary leaders who are helping to restore the city’s dignity as well as its schools, churches, homes and businesses. The arts and culture have emerged as a healing salve, connecting people to each other and to a past that’s been washed away. Rituals and celebrations, like the funeral procession I watched one morning from my hotel window, are rebuilding a sense of pride in New Orleans’ rich traditions.

    But I also saw a sea of tents pitched beneath an interstate overpass near the city center where hundreds of people have established temporary homes. There are still 100,000 houses to be rebuilt.

    Entire neighborhoods, like the Lower Ninth Ward, which is predominantly African-American, still do not have electricity, running water or trash pick-up — basic services that would allow people to rebuild their lives.
