Brad Pitt To Build 90 Homes in New Orleans

A fedora-sporting Brad Pitt leaves his New Orleans home in Louisiana on Tuesday.

He announced at a charity reception yesterday that his Make It Right Foundation has now raised enough money to build 90 homes in Hurricane Katrina-ravaged New Orleans. They also unveiled a donation from the American Idol Foundation, according to Us Weekly.

After the reception, Brad was seen dining with board members at one of Emeril’s restaurants, Delmonico’s.

  • Melanie is ted – she was flipp

    Melanie is in reality a gay gossip queen, jared has the IP. I think we should notify e! that they will be boycotted by 10 million strong. In his spare time when he isn’t assaulting the jolie pitts and defecating on the walls out of sheer hate and obsession for them, he’s hating on Jen Garner 24/7 for being with Affleck. If you notice Ted C is only vicious with the beautiful girls of hunky studly guys that he fanatasizes about. It’s because he wants to be them, getting impregnated all the time. He hates b*tches, because they get to f*ck his favs which he’d really love to rape, or force them to rape him. Yes, he’s that pathetic and hate inspired, unrequited love and boners have driven him insane.

    You should contribute too ! Sell your PC and gave the money for positive purposes, you are a waste of space right now.

    You need to do your good deeds and get rid of your nastiness : SELL YOUR PC ASAP !!! It gives you zero contribution to life anyway ! Instead, you are a positive contribution WRECKER !!!

  • Ike

    STILL ON ABOUT KATRINA? That mess is over. What about the Hurricane Ike devastation? Half of the kids at my school, and all of the kids at the district next to mine lost ALL of their homes. Where is the help for them??? It seems to be all about New Orleans. Texas never gets help.

    Isn’t Bush from Texas? Tell him to help. Or tell Pitt’s ex-wife to help. She’s sitting on $110 million and does nothing but lay on her ass all day long. It would be good for her to get up and do something positive with all that money, don’t you think?

  • angel

    later bampzskv

  • bdj

    BP is not the only celebrity in the world. He has ties and a love for New Orleans. There are country singers, actors, politicians, individuals out there who can can pitch in to help in Texas as BP has done in New Orleans. It is not all on the shoulders of one man.

    Jolie: Clint Eastwood Is A ‘Ridiculously Great’ Director

    MTV: Is “Human Factor” the next directing project for you?

    Eastwood: Yes.

    MTV: Angelina, what are you shooting next?

    Jolie: “The Human Factor”? [Laughs.] I’m just going to be an extra in all the scenes.

    Eastwood: Can you play Mandela? [Laughs.]

    MTV: [Eastwood] directed you. Maybe you want to direct him?

    Jolie: No, I want to be directed by him again. I’m looking for a job!

    *******************************************************************

    Oh anna, for God’s sake will you get the hell over it? You sound like a frustrated old bat. He tried to build a home with that self-centered excuse for a woman he married and it didn’t work out. He got sick and tired of being trapped in a loveless marriage and bailed. Wouldn’t you? Especially if your partner couldn’t be bothered giving you even one child to link the two of you together? He’s always been into building homes. He’s built himself a home with his soul mate and their six beautiful, vibrant children. Maybe the X will get it right next time and act like a wife instead of a dead weight. Stranger things have happened.

    Ike, I think you’re forgetting Brad Pitt wasn’t elected to anything. He can’t do it all. What, do you want him to shut down his MIR project and move on to Texas?

    HELLO?? He’s like, you know, an ACTOR.

    That means, all of his friggin’ MILLIONS are HIS, and HIS ALONE — and whoever he chooses to give it to. Which could be the weed man, the dermatologist, and house renovations, if he was living the same life he did with Jen Maniston.

    That means, he could spend it on draping Angelina’s naked body in diamonds and gold, or buy an island for he and his family in the South Pacific – and he wouldn’t have to answer for a gahdamm’d thing. I think you’re CONFUSED.

    You need to take your post #28, and e-mail it to your Congressman, Senator, and President, then ask them why THEY aren’t doing sh*t! Why THEY are letting an actor do their job for them.

    YOU have probably spent your entire adult life, giving your government 40% of your paycheck, for just this VERY thing – to aid fellow citizens who are victims of natural disasters that decimate whole states and regions…..yet here you are, a citizen LUCKY enough to BY CHANCE have a fellow American, an actor, be gracious and giving enough to NOT think of only himself, and his family (when like YOU, he could CHOOSE to be just as useless and at home on the PC just attacking people that will never know it) but instead chooses to help..and YET, YOU are giving him an additional grocery list of sh*t he can fix and spend his time, energy and money on??? Are you seriously missing a frontal lobe??

    Or do you really think, we need to be beholden to actors and celebrities to save us??!!! WTF??

    If so, why don’t you plan to elect Brad Pitt for President in 2012 – otherwise, you moaning about what he’s not doing, is really REALLY INSANE, kind of like you moaning about what Al Pacino is NOT doing, or what Meryl Streep is NOT doing or Laura Linney is NOT doing.

    Since when has SAG (Screen Actors Guild), replaced Congress and the Senate, and your President??

    What in F*CK is your problem?

    Melanie, your disease, hagitis of the brain, has now completely infected your whole body. Get thee quickly to a physician, there may be a cure. Really!!!

  • Changeling

    The Envelope continues their Jolie bashing:

    ‘Changeling’ and Angelina Jolie: Awards are not won on paper

    I have all the respect in the world for my colleague Tom O’Neil, but I strongly disagree with his glowing assessment of Angelina Jolie’s performance in/awards prospects for “Changeling,” the new Clint Eastwood film that he and I both saw at the same New York Film Festival press/industry screening last Thursday.

    Tom is 100% correct that, on paper, Jolie’s character Christine Collins fits the bill of—to paraphrase Humphrey Bogart in “The Maltese Falcon”—the, uh, stuff Oscar-dreams are made of.

    Start the checklist: real person … single mom … tireless fighter for her child … victim of the system who courageously takes on the system … mental illness (well, alleged) … multiple scenes with screams and tears … central focus of nearly every scene … in a period piece … for one of the most universally-respected, academy-approved directors … and the list goes on.

    Alas, awards are won not on paper, but on the screen, and in my analysis what’s on the screen is lacking. But don’t take my word for it.

    Although Tom concluded that the response of the audience at the screening we attended was “huzzahs galore,” I didn’t feel that was the case, and it certainly doesn’t reconcile with the reactions of these critics/pundits in the mainstream media and blogosphere:
