Brad Pitt & Patty Murray Make It Right

Brad Pitt meets with Washington Senator Patty Murray to discuss affordable and environmentally sustainable housing at a meeting in Senator Murray’s office in Washington D.C., on Thursday (March 5).

The 45-year-old actor/activist requested the meeting with Senator Murray, who chairs the Senate Housing Appropriations Subcommittee, to discuss his “Make It Right” project that constructs sustainable housing for low-income people living in New Orleans’ lower Ninth Ward.

    Brad Pitt! There, now I have your full attention. You saw him in Washington, DC, recently, meeting with Nancy Pelosi, Steven Chu and even The Big O. The real Big O – our president. (Some gene experts say that Brad is a distant cousin to the commander in chief.) The movie star was in the capital to work further on financing the New Orleans Housing Project.

    So, now the inevitable rumors arrive that the very serious Mr. Pitt is pondering public office. A source says, “Angelina (well, you knew she’d get in!) feels Brad would make a great politician. He would also compliment Angelina’s own efforts on behalf of UNICEF.”

    I’d say he’s doing enough, helping populate and adopt the world.

    More likely he will continue his public service, and in a similar manner to George Clooney – also often urged to run for office. Brad will not place his past life in the hands of the ravening investigative media.

    Mr. Pitt does have one political type who is encouraging him to change career: actor/producer William Carter. He worked in “Running With Scissors,” produced by Brad’s production company, and also served as a member of Sen. John Warner’s staff, post Elizabeth Taylor. You know – she is the woman who helped secure Warner’s Senate seat, back in 1978.

    He’s trying to act like a politician now. This is kind of funny. I’m glad that he is doing charity work, but come on now, he’s an actor.

  • irma

    #26. Brad is helping the people of NOLA, there’s nothing wrong with that. At least he is using his popularity in a very positive way. Why if someone do something good, others think he has other motives? The Jolie-Pitt’s are doing what others can’t. God bless the Jolie-Pitt’s.

    If all he was looking for was media attention then wouldnt he just run around on a beach with no shirt on?? The man is trying to help people, what have you done for someone else? I hope there is a special place in hell for people like you. You hide behind a computer spewing hate and malice, you don’t do anything for anyone else, but yet you hate it when someone else is out there helping others.

  • Layla

    WOOT! Look at our Brad looking all spiffy with his hunky self
    in his trademark suit by Tom Ford who btw should be giving Brad the company for wearing them so well. Nobody No Man wears a suit like Mr. Pitt..gulp droool…Love Brad! Whoa does he look good.

    Brad has no problem with his vocab You get this man talking in a comfortable enviorment and he leaves the intellects in the dust..
    I don’t think he is comfortable explaining himself as he likes to analize more than speak and he shorely would make one of the most gorgeous politicians out there..But It Ain’t Happening.

    The prez and senators read teleprompters. Ever seen them when it breaks down. Bwhaha..Now Thats when you realize who can or can’t speak in front of a state narton or the world. Actually i think Brad would do better than most in that situation.
    Altho i don’t believe Brad is even thinking about being a politician
    i am sure the celebrity world will have fun playing with Brads “On The Hill ‘pics.

    Brad does look mighty freaking fine and i hope whatever he is pushing for that the fine people in Nola get a break real soon.
    . If its to get back on their feet in their home grounds and settle in their roots. Make it a YAYY! like now. Lets do it now and Make It Right. The ones who stayed and did do it all right but ended up with a broken down homebase deserve some kind of big break like back in homes they can afford. It’s time as no doubt they have waited long enough. Their persistance
    With Brads ingenuity and the faith of the NOLA peeps as well as their
    strength of will and belief to continue helping this fine State that could become a tourist heaven a money factory if given the chance.
    If you ever lived in NOLA or visited you never forget and always say i am coming back. Its that kind of place. Lets hope Brads hard work in trying to put this beautiful attraction spot back on the map jumps into gear ASAP.
    Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Rockls!

  • annie

    hes not becoming a politician hes going to politicians to tell them that Make it Right works and they should do it in other places…..

    I thinks its great!!!!

  • Jess

    So few people are willing to recognize the efforts of celebrities. It doesn’t matter if they are actors or athletes or whatever, the focus is often on their lifestyle or the ridiculous money they earn, not on how they spend it. Brad Pitt is one of many celebs who chooses to endeavor philanthropic pursuits regularly and people still criticize him relentlessly. I personally think it noble that he or anyone else in a similar position take the time, exert the effort, spend the money to help people who are less fortunate. I’m not a big Brad fan, there are other actors who’s films I enjoy far more than his. But that doesn’t matter, he is a good actor and he has been in good films, and that too doesn’t matter, what matters is he shows concern for people and things that need to be advocated for, and to me that’s pretty righteous.

  • KD

    Brad CAN speak well asswipe, he is just shy and it takes him some time to articulate what he wants to say…

  • Debra77

    He is not acting like a politician. He is just a concerned citizen who saw a problem and tried to help. That is what all American do and should do. Stop all the stupid hate. Go and and make a difference too.

  • nina

    Brad is awesome. Love him

  • hannah

    S*ht I am very upset to see some of the tabolids cover. Why don’t they leave Brad and Angie alone? I think they can’t sell magazine with out Brad and Angie on the cover. It is horrible . I wish that Brad and Anige sue them.

    Ronald Reagan was a B listed actor but become one of the greatest president and world leader of all time.

  • voe

    oath,

    All Pitt needs is a teleprompter and he’ll deliver great speeches and debates like his supposedly distant cousin.

  • briseis

    Don’t know why the haters are in a snit about Brad being an actor and yet trying to do good. Also, so what if he does decide to run for public office (not that I’d think he would do it, that is so Clooney-esque)? IIRC, we did have a president who was even the head honcho of SAG, and made movies like Bedtime for Bonzo. If he was able to do it, why not Bradley? You fanistons are just pulling shite out of your behind just so you could btich at Bradley.

  • Remi

    There goes my Hero……………..

  • huh

    I guess the lie about Brad cheated with Diane Kruger didn’t work, Mickey’s tell all book isn’t going to happen, now Brad with nanny. LMAO. Tabloids lies become dumber and dumber. But tabloids are stupid jenhen’s bible. :lol:

  • awwwww

    I have so much respect for Brad. He is beautiful from inside and out.
