Doug Pitt Named Goodwill Ambassador Of Tanzania

Doug Pitt is honored for his humanitarian work and named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Republic of Tanzania by President Jakaya Kikwete at NYC’s Essex House on Monday (April 19).

His older brother, actor Brad Pitt, was supposed to attend the tribute dinner but he was grounded due to the volcanic ash from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Doug‘s wife Lisa Pitt was in attendance.

FYI: Doug is a professional photojournalist and a director of Africa 6000 International, a charity that helps supply fresh water in Africa.

    Almost as cute as Brad.

  • Mega

    I can’t believe they are brothers :|

  • gabs

    @Patti:
    Agreed! I can see the resemblance.

  • Lucky Charm

    @ patti & gabs – ITA, they are both very good looking men. I wonder if Knox will end up looking like them when he’s older. And kudos to Doug, this is a great honor for him.

  • shaar

    big hearts run in the family :)

  • Dug Pit

    haaaaaaa…….. his parents were funny

  • gaeljet

    there ‘s a ressemblance, but that ‘s it

  • Whatevah

    Good for him. Nice looking family.

  • may

    interested to see what the cost of that fund are – what the directors are paid and such….

  • gg

    Doug looks a lot like Brad, his wife is pretty. Congradulations for your honour in humanitarian work!

  • too bad

    that wife is ugly as all get out
    wow

  • aeg

    Good for him. Didn’t know Brad has a brother…I know sister(s) for sure.

  • roja

    Hiiiiiiiyyyyaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

    Afrika : our Motherland!!!

  • aeg

    @shaar: Thanks to Angie ;-)

  • Tara

    Too bad his brother is such a loser…Hope he has a bigger set of “nads” than his bro…lol :)

  • Sofia

    Brad and Doug are look alikes!… Awesome both are really handsome

  • Frida

    Brad is OLDER than this guy? Wow, sure doesn’t look like it…

  • http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/TMobilePromoRipoffs Ellie Mae Clampett

    Wait, there’s another, normal Pitt? That’s pretty cool. He seems down to earth. Not that Brad isn’t, but being a movie star, I’m sure he has some eccentricities.

  • Lucky Charm

    @Tara:

    Tara, no call for that. Doug should be congratulated for this honor, this has nothing at all to do with Brad.

  • http://jj.com LYNN

    Congradulations Mr. Ambassador.

    He is almost as handsome as Brad his brother, Not quite he has a little while to go. I could tell that this guy seem quite smart, because I heard him talk on a news program before Can’t remember whose program.

  • zero

    Doug is looking a hell of a lot better than Brad. He has aged nicely where Brad looks like a haggard hobo.

  • ladylurksalot

    That’s awesome for Doug. Kudos to a whole family for doing their part to make the world a better place!

  • adriana

    I guess good looks just run in the Pitts family :) Doug is a very good looking man and his wife has a very sincere and friendly smile.
    CONGRATS to Doug!!!!

  • Celia

    Wow! He’s hot too and also a humanitarian. The Pitt family has some excellent genes.

  • Tara

    #19 ~ Then why is Brad’s face from the past and Brad’s name involved in the topic???? Doubt this would even be on here if he wasn’t the brother of such a loser celeb…Get over yourself…

  • natalie

    Pothead Pitts, aka Brad, is ugly. His brother, on the other hand, is handsome in a conventional way. I would never mistake Doug for a model, but he’s nice enough looking. His wife is attractive in her own way.

  • dollface

    Altruism runs in the family. Nice. He’s cute, but he’s no Brad Pitt. Brad is the sexiest man alive.

  • j’adore

    Mama & Papa Pitt must be so proud of all their children. Brad won the genetic lottery, though. He’s a gorgeous man.

  • jamie

    theres a resemblance, but this guy just isnt attractive.

  • Brad is The Man

    dollface @ 04/20/2010 at 3:54 pm

    I agree. Haters can scream all they want. Brad is hot.

  • viv

    he looks a bit like zach braff in the main picture

  • edna

    This guy didn’t inherit his brother’s good looks, lol.

  • Jslin

    Good for Doug Pitt, the world can always use another set of helping hands.

  • Bonnie

    Brad was born in 63 then Doug in 66 last Julie in 69.I think they have the same shaped eyes and big beautiful smiles.You can tell they are brothers.

  • janelle

    He’s handsome like his brother. I think Doug is three years younger. Big hearts and good looks run in the family!

  • Jslin

    Wow. I didn’t realize one had to be “gorgeous” to be involved with worldwide issues.

    Ugly? Your opinion. Ugly is a horrible and rude attitude towards others, especially towards the ones you don’t even know. People who want to get involved and help human life should not be criticized for it.

  • amalia

    Am i dreaming or does her forehead resemble Angie’s? She seems really sweet and was probably quite attractive when she was younger. Bravo to the Pitt family. Scary what one little icelandic volcano can do- to travel here in europe- we are all earth bound for a bit- its rather wild!!! I so hope the ash settles soon and life gets back to normal.

  • Elizabeth

    Wow first time I saw Doug. what an interesting family. Congrats Doug and wife. Wonderful family. Good looks run in the family.

  • Caroline

    So proud of him. What a great influence Angelina Jolie has brought to the Pitts. BRAVO
    p.s. she’s pretty & he’s a fox..grrrr

  • sharon

    Doug is good looking, Brad is a lot hotter than Doug.

  • wooow

    Great familes both Pitt family and Jolie Pitt family.

  • Good Work!

    This is amazing- too bad the volcano kept Brad away…Doug has 2 nephews and 2 nieces (Z & Shi, of course) that were born in Africa, so he must feel doubly proud to be so honored. Yes, Angie has been a wonderful influence on the whole Pitt family, not just her sweet Brad!

  • hmmmm

    Doug Pitt is the director of Jolie Pitt foundation too. Congrats to Doug.

  • Lucky Charm

    @Tara:

    Get over myself?! This thread is about Doug Pitt getting honored as a Goodwill Ambassador, of course his relationship with Brad Pitt will be mentioned. I think you need a nap. Moving on now…

  • Cruz

    Brad’s sister Julie adopted two boys from Ethiopia

  • http://aol Patti

    I think both Brad and Doug look like their mother. She is an attractive lady.

  • cj

    this is all angelina’s influence………………she is a wonderful person……………..we all have things and attitudes that’s human but all in all angie’s influence on her husband’s family is great

  • Gwen

    Apparently Brad Pitt won genetic lottery but good hearts run in the family.

  • marina

    @zero:
    well, Doug did not had to live with the ex sis in law, not for nothing Brad was smoking like a chimney, going into therapy and God know what else, all while keeping appearances and actually living apart.
    Good that they both took different paths, now Brad and his family are more in tune into family life and humanitarian work.
    Their parents did a good job. They deserve those holidays in Venezia with the grandchildren.

    I see the haters are already here hatin’ on Brad’s bro. Biitches really need to get a life…preferably one that doesn’t involve posting on this site. They can hate all they want – just go find someone who gives a shite what they think. Good luck with that…
