Brad Pitt To Build 90 Homes in New Orleans

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

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

These sad hens think they are specializing in reverse psychology. Too funny. Everybody knows you hens are screaming at the Ocean along with Whiny. BP is the man that got away and hens are moaning and groaning to this day. AJ has the best prize of all, six adorable children and the sexy papa Pitt. Suck it up hens.

ITAWY.

Angelina has an Oscar, 3 GGs, and 2 SAG’s.

She is not wasting her time worrying about another award.

Some socalled fans appear in need of some award type validation while Angelina herself does not.

That’s kind of sad to me.

If Angelina won an Oscar how would it help her career? It surely has not helped Hall,. Reese or Julia Roberts career. Angelina already has her choice of movies. I agree with bdj. These people who write Oscar/Movie blogs use Angelina’s name to get hits.

look at that hunk of a man, I’m sorry, he’s just too fine, you go brad,!!! and what a heart he’s got, he seems to have time for everything and every one who is important to him, that’s a great balance, did you notice on the red carpet how Angie was holding on to brad for dear life? lol, she knows she have a good man. and she appreciates him, they make a lovely couple. i feel honored to be their fan, they make me proud of them, they never disappoint.

Without Brad Angelina would not have her 3 youngest children.

Without Brad Angelina might not have either Z or Pax, as she has said she and Brad made the decision to adopt Z together, and they adopted Pax together.

Brad and their SIX children mean the world to Angelina, they are her #1 priority in life, she says this time after time.

What dam* award could mean more to Angelina than her family?

None that exists!!!!

I see the troll ” Trip ” is working hard under different names. lol.

Update from EPCC

EPCC at the CGI Annual Meeting
CGI 2008 logoOne year ago, the Education Partnership for Children in Conflict was launched at the Clinton Global Initiative with the goal of funding new education projects for children in conflict, post conflict, refugee and emergency situations. EPCC started with eighteen commitments reaching the world’s most vulnerable children from Iraq to Columbia to Northern Uganda to Afghanistan to Darfur.

From September 24-26th, at this year’s Clinton Global Initiative, our partners will share with us the progress they’ve made and many will pledge to do even more. The momentum from last year has led to new partnerships and commitments that will be announced at the Annual Meeting and aim to educate children affected by some of the worst misfortunes due to conflict.

As we gather together in New York City, relief efforts will be running at full tilt in Haiti to provide immediate assistance to its citizens devastated by the recent storms. More than 150,000 people have been left homeless and 800,000 people are in urgent need of humanitarian aid. Furthermore, in a country where children already face substantial barriers to education, the hurricanes that have hit Haiti over the past few weeks have created even greater obstacles to schooling. Approximately 500,000 children attending 1,000 schools throughout the country (particularly in the most affected areas) have been identified as those most in need of educational assistance.

President Clinton will call upon CGI Members to come together to not only help Haiti recover from the recent hurricanes, but to build it back stronger and better than ever before. You can help to “Build Back Better” by contributing to EPCC partners working in Haiti to be a key part of making that happen

sorry neleh, thanks,hello, i hope all is well with you. and every one else, i don’t get to post as much or catch up with threads but my heart is still here, have a great day.

Update in How you can help:

1. Haiti:Children of Haiti
Partner projects range from providing bare essentials like water taps to hope for the future through scholarships.

2. Katrina: Children of Katrina
We have collected a registry of partner projects helping the children of New Orleans deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

New Orleans:
New Orleans Outreach Student

Three years after Hurricane Katrina, the children of New Orleans are still recovering. The struggling school system was devastated by the storm. Most school buildings were destroyed or damaged. Students, faculty and administrators were scattered across the country. Months of living as virtual refugees ended any chance of a normal school life. The physical and emotional effects of coping with this disaster are still present. Extra help is needed to make sure these kids can make the most of themselves through education.

Partners are working right here in the U.S. to provide the programs and services needed in post-emergency situations to allow these children to heal, learn and rebuild their lives

Changeling @ 10/07/2008 at 8:12 pm

I Am Changeling! This Guy Plays Devil to Angelina

On Saturday, Oct. 4, the paparazzi were in full blitzkrieg blast outside the Ziegfeld Theatre for the premiere centerpiece of the New York Film Festival, Changeling. Director Clint Eastwood, tall and ever-elegant in a dark suit and blue-printed tie, posed with his film’s star, Angelina Jolie—glam and sultry, and apparently back to pre-twins shape in a black Versace dress. Brad Pitt was beside her, and when they posed together the wall of photographers’ flashbulbs lit up the sky. But further down the line it was a different story.

Jason Butler Harner, who plays the role of Gordon Stewart Northcott, infamous serial killer of the late 1920s in Los Angeles, was taking his first major red-carpet stroll. He had asked a good friend, actress Sarah Paulson (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), to accompany him, and noticed that the photographers appeared more interested in taking her picture than his (a quick perusal of Getty and WireImage shows he was right). A couple of tabloid reporters asked him who he was, and the others asked what he was doing in the movie. They all wanted to know what Angelina was really like. (Occasionally, they’d ask about what it was like working with Clint.) He was having a hard time coming up with new superlatives. He had a hard time answering anything, really, as he still hadn’t actually seen the movie. Once inside, the ushers at the Ziegfeld didn’t believe him when he said he was in the film, and once he convinced them he had to kick out seat crashers before settling in row X. But then Clint Eastwood got up to introduce the film and said that this cast—which features tons of stellar supporting actors including John Malkovich, Denis O’Hare, Amy Ryan and Michael Kelly—was comprised of some of the most talented actors working today. As Mr. Eastwood listed his talent, he included Mr. Harner’s name. Ms. Paulson squeezed his arm. “That’s you.”

About 16 hours later, over mimosas and an organic omelet in his Upper West Side neighborhood, the lanky, hazel-eyed 6-foot-2 Mr. Harner, who turns 38 this week, was still shaking his head in disbelief. He was out celebrating till 4:30 a.m., came home and watched the first half of Saturday Night Live, and woke up wondering if the previous 48 hours had actually happened. His jaw ached from nervous clenching in the darkened movie theater. Mr. Harner is a 15-year theater veteran, starring on and off Broadway—among his credits are Tom Stoppard’s The Coast of Utopia, Hedda Gabler (for which he won an Obie award), The Glass Menagerie at the Kennedy Center, The Paris Letter, and The Cherry Orchard opposite Annette Bening and Alfred Molina—but Changeling is Mr. Harner’s first major film role, and could possibly be a life-changing one. Since the film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May, he has been living in a state of anxiety, setting his Google alert for reviews and then turning it off it because it was getting to be just too much.

“I read some mean stuff about myself on some blog,” Mr. Harner said. “Having not seen the film, I didn’t have my own opinion. It sort of got to my biggest fears: like, oh, ****. I’m about to be publicly humiliated. And then you sort of have to deal with the fact that maybe you were really bad in this film.” It turns out that Mr. Harner had nothing to worry about. His portrayal of Northcott is a complicated, unnerving and electrifying performance. In Changeling he is skittish, moon-faced and empty-eyed, alternating between little-boy-pathetic and terrifying; he’s able to throw the audience off balance. Toward the end of the film, in one of its most intense scenes, he faces off with Angelina Jolie and the two spark off of each other in a pas de deux of crazy emotional unleashing. After the premiere, he had to deal with people (maybe) pretending to be scared to shake his hand.

# 71 Changeling @ 10/07/2008 at 7:37 pm I hate the double standard with Jolie. She gets trashed as an actress every single day by film blogs because she is overexposed in the tabloids. But this December, nobody will be writing articles about Pitt questioning his credibility as an actor because of his tabloid overexposure.
________________________________

First of all, we don’t know what will happen. That could very well be the case from some. I would advise you, however, if you are sincere in your ‘concern,’ do NOT spread the links that feature articles deconstructing Angelina from unknown blogger critics pals of OuttaTouch Tom, who haven’t even seen the film. They are piling on, and it appears they have an agenda. What I see is that there may be a backlash of those who see that something is up in Demark and so seek to go the exact opposite way, and nominate her.

As for Brad’s chances, we’ll know when we get there, but simply gauging past treatment, many feel he was snubbed for Babel and Best Supporting Actor, especially since that film made it to the show as Best Picture contender, and everyone alive knew that Brad Pitt and his performance put the movie on the map.

He could have easily, and deservedly gotten an Oscar nomination for Babel’s Richard, because much like Angelina would a year later – he ALSO got the Golden Globe, and SAG nods and many other great critical reviews, but he didn’t.

Changeling @ 10/07/2008 at 8:13 pm

Following the press and industry screening the Thursday before the premiere, Clint Eastwood answered a handful of questions at a press conference. One of them was about where and how he had found Mr. Harner. Mr. Eastwood described seeing a tape of Mr. Harner sent in from New York, and of his reading being so spectacular he basically called off the search then and there.

“Clint said that?” Mr. Harner asked. He smiled delightedly, friendly and down-to-earth, with the perfect diction of someone who has spent a good chunk of time onstage. He remembered the audition for casting director Ellen Chenoweth. “I prepared for it, but to be really honest, you fight so hard to even have these auditions, and as much as you want to hit it out of the park … Well, I won’t say I’m cynical. I’d say I’m pragmatic. You see these juicy roles, and 9 times out of 10, they’ll go to a much more established actor. It’s the nature of the business. It was such an amazing part. So I decided I’d use my 15 minutes to show what I would do with it.” A couple of months later, he was walking through Soho when he got the call.

He was also told that Amy Ryan, one of his best friends, had been cast, and when he called her, he remembers her telling him, “Just stop for a moment and take it in. You just got cast in a Clint Eastwood movie.”

IT WAS A LONG road to here. Mr. Harner grew up in Elmira, N.Y., before relocating to Alexandria, Va. His parents split up when he was 6, after his mother left her marriage to marry his stepfather (who passed away in 2001). Mr. Harner lived with his father (who also remarried, divorced, and eventually came out of the closet) till he was in the sixth grade, before moving back in with his mother. “I have been very lucky with both my parents,” Mr. Harner is careful to say. “But I was a sensitive kid. A funny kid, and a perceptive one. There was a lot of time spent alone.” Or, being tortured by an older brother and three older stepbrothers: “I have been hung off a 24-story building by my ankles, I had my toothbrush shoved up their ass and then I had to brush my teeth with it. I was put in a dryer. I was peed on. I was left out in the rain. I can’t begin to tell you about how many noogies, wedgies, and why-are-you-hitting-yourself’s I went through.

“No blame on anyone,” he continued, “but I processed the divorce like, O.K., everyone is so caught up in their own ****, no one is going to take care of me so I’m going to take care of myself. That’s how you interpret it. There’s great things about that and there are some horrors, which one still finds themselves unraveling in their 30s. … Like, oh, I’m turning 38 and I’m single and have no children. Wonder what that’s about?” As a high-school student, Mr. Harner was 5-foot-6 and 175 pounds. “They called me the egg man. … I was round. I was heavy and depressed. It was awful. It was high school. I remember a teacher told me she was going to cast me as Conrad in Ordinary People but she said she was scared I’d actually kill myself.”

Mr. Harner applied to a bunch of colleges, but forgot to include things, like an essay, and found himself wait-listed or rejected everywhere but at Virginia Commonwealth University. He attended school, he grew 8 inches and he started to enjoy being onstage. After college and an apprenticeship at the Actors Theatre of Louisville, he moved to New York City and endeavored to get as much theater work as he could. In the meantime, he held odd jobs at the Hilton Hotel as a desk clerk, and for a time booked Spirit Cruise reservations. After about a year and a half, a friend suggested he apply to the acting masters program at N.Y.U. More than 10 years after graduating, he has two roommates and still owes $79,000 in graduate school loans.

“People think I have money now, which is funny,” he said. He’s done small parts in The Good Shepherd, Law & Order (all three of ’em) and HBO’s John Adams. “Even other actors, who should know better, say things to me like, ‘Oh, you’re having a good year.’ It’s like, hey, you were on a TV series for two years … do you have any money, ************?”

THOUGH HIS PART in Changeling was a grim one, at times requiring him to wield an axe and menace children (“We shot this scene on Halloween. I had blood all over my face, and I told the kids, ‘You’ll never have a better Halloween than this one’”), the 10-week shoot with Mr. Eastwood was as gratifying as one might expect. “He offers these pearls of wisdom, about trusting yourself, and getting out of your own way,” Mr. Harner said (who, in addition to other talents, can do a hilarious impression of his director). “The thing that’s so strange [about film] is that you have to surrender so much. In theater you collaborate for four or five weeks and then it’s your nightly relationship with the audience. I was lucky that I had this incredible Zen master at the head of it. Like, yeah, of course I’ll trust you.”

Changeling @ 10/07/2008 at 8:14 pm

After being cast in Changeling, Mr. Harner got booked as another scary guy, a guest-starring baddie role on the pilot for Fringe, J. J. Abrams’ latest series. But he’d like to move away from creepy. “What happens is, people are like, ‘Oh, hey, you played that creepy guy.’ So they want me to play a serial killer in another movie. And you don’t want to be the serial killer guy, and they’re like, ‘But nooo, this guy kills women.’ And you’re like, ‘But he’s still a serial killer!’” He said he’d ideally like to do something funny next. He confessed to a love of romantic comedies (“I won’t be the guy but I could be the best friend, right?”) and he fantasizes about appearing on 30 Rock.

Oh yeah, and about that über-famous co-star of his. “She’s kind. She’s funny. As an actress she’s extremely well prepared, talented, and very, very smart. You think about what age she is and it’s incredible: her work, her children, her humanitarianism … and she’s just so incredibly beautiful.” After getting off the red carpet on Saturday, Ms. Jolie told Mr. Harner she had been asked about capital punishment. “I told her I got asked about what I had gotten her for a baby gift. She was like, ‘I’m sooo sorry.’ I was like, what on earth are you sorry for?”

OMG these sad trolls!! they’re outa their wee heads re the JP’s .. The beauty, the philanthropy, the talent, the reverence, the fame………overwhelming substance in the face of so many others, like X, who have so much and do so little…other than address their nacissitic needs.

It is no wonder they are batsh..t…….they’re cornered. Everyone has let them down………the lying rags, the blog rumour mill……… If they saw the JP’s take a sip of water they’d accuse them of not sharing it with the third world.

If the nut bars stalking JP’s fan blogs only knew that their insanity prevents anyone from reading one word they write and affording it one iota of credibility. Brad wears a hat so the sh….t flying overhead concerning his wife and family won’t land directly on his head.

A year after its official launch at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2007, many EPCC Partners returned to New York to share their progress with an ever-growing community of educators committed to extend education to children of conflict. This year’s annual meeting featured the stories of three inspiring young individuals– former children of conflict — now using the education they received to help others follow in their footsteps.

The Valentino Acheck Deng Foundation
Valentino Achak Deng was born in Southern Sudan in the village of Marial Bai. During the civil war, he spent 9 years living in Ethiopian and Kenyan refugee camps and then was given the chance to finish his education in the US. In 2007, Valentino committed to building a large educational center in Marial Masi, starting with a secondary school. He has spent much of the past year in Southern Sudan working on the planning and construction of the first classroom building

Kakenya’s Dream
Kakenya Ntaiya
Kakenya’s Dream
Life for Kakenya Ntaiya was supposed to follow the traditional path. Engaged at age 5, she was to be circumcised by the time she was a teenager – an event that would mark the end of her education and the beginning of her preparations for marriage. But Ms. Ntaiya had a different plan. First, she negotiated with her father: she would be circumcised only if she could also finish high school. Then she negotiated with the village elders to do what no girl had ever done: leave her Maasai village of Enoosaen in south Kenya to go to college in the United States. Kakenya is close to achieving another dream: establishing the first primary boarding school for girls in Enoosaen.
Since 2006, Kakenya has been working to build a girls’ school so that other young African girls might travel the same path she did – to education, self-realization and leadership.

The Gift of Grace
Grace Akallo was abducted from school in Uganda a the age of 15, and was trained as a child soldier by the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army. She was taken to an LRA stronghold in Sudan, was forced to participate in the LRA’s campaigns, and barely escaped after being buried alive and left for dead. Grace returned home to pursue her education in Uganda and later the United States, graduating from Gordon College, in Boston. She is now an advocate for girls’ education and is founder of “Gift of Grace” – her own scholarship program to benefit girls in Northern Uganda whose lives have been affected by the conflict and unrest. Watch Grace talk about the importance of educatio

Brad actually got snubbed by Oscar before Angie for Babel.

First of all, we don’t know what will happen this time out re Benji Button.

I would advise you, however, if you are sincere in your ‘concern,’ do NOT spread the links that feature articles deconstructing Angelina from unknown blogger critics pals of OuttaTouch Tom, who haven’t even seen the film.

They are piling on at this la time blog site, and it appears they have an agenda. What I see is that there may be a backlash of those who see that something is up in Demark and so seek to go the exact opposite way, and nominate her.

As for Brad’s chances, we’ll know when we get there, but simply gauging past treatment, many feel he was snubbed for Babel and Best Supporting Actor, especially since that film made it to the show as Best Picture contender, and everyone alive knew that Brad Pitt and his performance put the movie on the map.

He could have easily, and deservedly gotten an Oscar nomination for Babel’s Richard, because much like Angelina would a year later – he ALSO got the Golden Globe, and SAG nods and many other great critical reviews, but he didn’t.

Brad began this program what 1 1/2 years ago or shorter. And now they have 90 homes in the works. The Government had over 3 years and there are still people displaced. He did not have to do anything. He cared enough and did what Americans all over the country could and do. He saw a need and got the best people together and got results. That to me is an example of an American…Enough said on that topic

I know the haters love to say that Brad changes to fit the woman he is with. Not true. This man has built his brand for 20+ years. He has become a much bigger star than Gwenny or Jennifer. He demands attention on his own.. It has nothing to do with women, or he would have become a has been without them. Not the case. I know that many of you want to be negative for the sake of negativity. Nothing else. You have nothing to truly base your hatred so you grasp at straws and dig up unfounded lies to justify that hate. If he were any other celeb doing the same thing you would sing his praises. But, because he had a marriage that did not work, and found happiness with Angelina Jolie, he is a pariah. I chose to see the way people live their lives, not the stories in a magazine designed to print the worst in order to sell it. If every magazine printed the truth about Brad/Angie they would go out of business..Why… The lies sell, and the gullible buy the lie, and plant them then eat the poison fruit.

Character is built from change in our lives and the choices we make. Brad has great Character. The women he has had relationships with find it hard to let him go because he is a good man. Well respected in an industry that is mostly fluff. Respected by his peers. We on line who like to blog base our opinions on small glimpses into his and Angie’s lives. I choose to look around the crap and see the true picture. It is clear to me.

They are making a difference in the lives of so many people. Those people are now able to move forward and live a better life. What could be wrong with that? Brad is one man making a make in NOLA. Hopefully what is successful there can be implemented in other places. There are other Celebs out there. Tom, Will, and others, call on them to take on the work that needs to be done in other places. He is doing NOLA. Now it seems he is responsible for the lack of help in other places too. Gosh this man is not the Almighty… He is ONE man helping in ONE place… instead of doing a little in several places, he can help in this place then others can see the success and do it some place else.

What are you who are on line criticizing doing to help… NOT much I dare to say.

You guys should check http://www.educationpartnership.org/ more often and maybe bdj you could link next to make it right the link of how the help katrina children.

One problem, as I see it, is that some psuedo fans are very unhappy with Brad’s major role in Angelina’s life. They are miserable to see that she and Brad are a complete unit, and that both of them support the other in whatever their interests or projects happen to be.

Angelina is no longer a lone woman with a child against the world, she has a partner in Brad who will be part of her her life now and forever. There are bonds existing between Angelina and Brad that will never be broken. Angelina made the decision in 2005 that Brad was the man for her and that he would be the father of her children. She knew what to expect, she is very much aware of the world and how it operates. She herself has said that Brad and the kids are her sanctuary.

Angelina wants to be with Brad, and Brad wants to be with Angelina, that is evident to all in the fact that they have not been apart except for tiny minute time periods since 2005. They have both done what ever has been necessary to make all the accomodations in both their personal and professional lives to be together.

A prime example of that is that they fly from Berlin to NYC for Angelina’s movie, and then they go on to NOLA for Brad’s MIR project, always together. They roll as a group, all together, since 2005. Every tale as to them splitting and living separately has been proven to be just a lie. Where one Jolie-Pitt is found, so will be the others, and that includes Brad.

You all hiding behind this false award concern need to be for real and remove the masks.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie inspire Jamie Oliver to adopt

Jamie Oliver has admitted he has been inspired to consider adopting a child, after seeing the “loving family environment” created by Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The celebrity chef has spoken of his wish to have a son and said he would be prepared to adopt to give his daughters Poppy, six, and Daisy, five, a brother.

Mr Oliver, 33, said: “I live at home with three girls and I need a bit of testosterone.

“If I can’t produce a boy I will have to adopt one. I would consider it.

“We have two beautiful, healthy girls and we cherish them. But I’d be lying if I said it wouldn’t be great to have a boy.”

Mr Oliver said he and wife Jools, 34, admire their A-list friends Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for their “humbling” decision to adopt.

The pair have three adopted children, Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as well as three biological children, including newborn twins Knox, and Vivienne, and daughter Shiloh.

The couples have met before, and Mr Oliver cooked for Mr Pitt on a visit to England some years ago.

Mr Oliver said: “Adoption is such a selfless act and they have a lovely family environment. It’s humbling and beautiful to see.

“Jools would like to have another child but there are so many vulnerable orphans out there. Jools and I need to sit down and have a very serious conversation about it.”
