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.

    @ 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.

    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.

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

    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.

    natalie Says:

    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.

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

  36. 36
    Jslin Says:

    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 Says:

    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.

    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!

    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…

    Bijoux Says:

    Congratulations to Doug Pitt! I have been keeping up with the articles regarding Doug’s water project in Tanzania. I’ve been impressed with all his humanatarian efforts. The Jolie-Pitts and the family of Pitts have gone beyond what I thought was possible with one family. Angie and Brad have done a remarkable job getting others involved. The involved parties are both famous and regular people, like myself. I’m impressed with SOS, Doctors Without Borders, Not on my watch, and Matt Damon’s project to bring water to suffering countries. I wonder if Matt Damon’s water project is in connection with Doug Pitt’s water project. Of course, I cannot forget the support Brad Pitt New Orleans project to make it right after the hurricane. Lastly, the efforts in Haiti is enormous. Thanks to the Pitt Family for everything they have accomplished.

    Passing Through Says:

    Pardon me for bringing up X for a second, but this had me ROTFLMBAO. I was just at the Yahoo homepage and their feature story was “What Mean Really Think About Your Hair.” So I said to myself – “I wonder how many examples they’ll give before mentioning Her Hairness?” How many? ZERO! It was in the first example! LOL! But check out what the question was…
    Do you care if a girl styles her hair the same way every day? 71 percent said no. 29 percents said yes. Jennifer Aniston sticks to her signature style, and hey, it works! Check out Jen’s best styles since 1992
    What they should have asked is, “Do you care if a girl styles her hair the same way every day…FOR 15 YEARS!?” LOL! Then they have a link to check out X’s hairstyles since 1992…but they curiously left this one out –
    And then there’s this insight into why X can’t keep a man…
    Hair Up? Or Down?

    Actually, it might be the action that matters just as much as the style! 43 percent of guys said they love watching a girl put up her hair, while 37 percent said they enjoy watching a girl let down her hair. 20 percent said both are equally hot and Leighton’s covered either way!
    Ho never puts her hair up…so she can’t take it down! That pretty much says all there is to say about why men keep running away from her… BBBBWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Kudos to him and his wife. It’s rare to see any of his family in the spotlight. Unlike many other celeb family members, the Pitt family seem to be happy with their own lives and not chasing thier own fame and headlines. THIS looks well deserved though.

    sick of hate Says:

    Congrats to Doug Pitt. I’d like to think Angelina had something to do with both Brad and Doug becoming humanitarians. Brad was starting to when he met Angie, she just showed him the way. It is nice to see Doug Pitt more involved.
    The Pitt family needs to support the Jolie-Pitt kids and Angelina from the haters of the Aniston days, that woman breeds hate.

    Hello to all the JP Fans!
    Oy my gosh! Doug is a cute as Brad. Those Pitt genes are too adorable!
    And he is just as thoughtful and kind and pleasant. What a great job Mr. and Mrs. Pitt did with their three gorgeous children.
    And I love how grammy and pappa are getting to spend so much time with the grand children. What wonderful memories these children will have.
    I am so happy for Angelina that she is part of this loving family.
    Bless them all and the Holy Angels cover Angelina at all times, and all those beautiful little children and my beautiful Brad as well.

    sick of hate Says:

    PS…Lisa Pitt is beautiful to the stupid haters on this board. Must be the same old Aniston fans surly and hateful because their baggage is so heavy to carry around for so long just like Jenny’s.
    Congrats again to Doug Pitt, I’m sure Lisa Pitt helps out too.

    TIM GUNN Says:

    Thank You, Brad and Douglas.

    Tanzania is one my favorite places in the world. It has greatly saddened me, that for the last ten years, it has been to violent to visit.

    The dictators, and civil unrest always hurt the children and the poorest the worst. Clean available drinking water is the first and most important step for the people’s survival.

    DarkEmpress Says:


    Really? They look very much alike. I guess those pitt genes are strong bc all Brad’s biological kids look like him.

  64. 64
    Ana Says:

    Regarding Brad and Doug’s penchant for humanitarian work –
    I was reading somewhere where Angie said she and Brad are so much alike in so many things and THAT is what brought them together.
    She said neither changed the other when they got together. They are very much one soul and apparently both have been so from birth.
    She said Brad has always been a humanitarian but a lot more quiet about it. So they both have always had that desire to help people.
    I remember Brad said he used to ask his mother why the world was not fair. So from a tender age he was always about “justice.” Angelina, too. How she fought for the principal of her school when he was about to be terminated. I believe that was the story. So they have so much in common deep down. No wonder they love each other so much and work so well together. It is as Wyclef said they are “inseparable.”
    Brad and Angelina, to me, are probably very much just like their twins Viv and Knox – TWINS and Inseparable! And will always be very close to each other. Just like Mr. and Mrs William Pitt.
    The way they are always reaching for each other on the red carpets and when they are out and about. The way Angie rests her head so lovingly on Brad’s chest. The way Brad looks at her and how adoringly she looks at him, the way she has to touch his arm or his thigh when they are in the car, the way he holds her and touches her.
    They just seem to need each other’s presence to feel complete.
    Angie said if any one made a slight change in their relationship it was she because after being with Brad she decided she wanted to have his babies, which was a major step for her because she had previously said she would never have a biological child.
    A few months with Brad and seeing how truly loving he is and what a wonderful father he is to Mad and Zee changed her mind completely and she told him she would like to try. And bang, they were pregnant. And he said he did not feel the time was right until Angie and that she is the greatest gift he could give his children. What beautiful things to say to and about each other.
    These two make me swoon they are so loving and deeply affectionate towards each other.
    I think Brad’s little swimmers were just chomping at the bit, waiting for the right woman to be mother to his children because they made a beeline to her eggs and produced one of the most beautiful babies ever – Shiloh. And the second time around those little swimmers of Brad’s said “we have to make up for lost time and we have to do this twice. We need more little Jolie-Pitts on this planet” – so they did their thing and produced two more gorgeous babies to add to the 4 gorgeous children already in the family.
    And what a beautiful family they have.
    God bless this family with every happy, wonderful, beautiful, eternal gift. They deserve only good because they do only good.
    And God bless Doug and Lisa for being so generous to others who would have died without their help.
    It would seem the entire Jolie-Pitt and Pitt clans have hearts as deep and wide as a humongous PITT! :)

    Congratulations Mr. Doug Pitt. What a proud day for the Pitt clan. This will bring them all even closer as a family. I am sure the grandparent Pitts are happy as can be with Angelina. She is such a generous soul and has definitely rubbed off on the Pitts and got them all to be involved on such a large scale.

    and Lisa is quite charming..

    Anonymous Says:

    OMG! The resemblance between the Pitt brothers is uncanny! They could be twins. Doug looks exactly like his big bro Brad without the beard. They both have that same beautiful smile and those dimples. Looks like Knox has inherited the same dimples from the Pitt side of the family. It´s wonderful to see that also Doug is involved in charity work. Brad and Angie sure have inspired him a lot. Or maybe he has done it for years and only now it´s been revealed to the publicity. Lisa must be so proud of her husband. What a shame that Brad, Angie and the elder Pitts couldn´´t be there to share this special day with Doug. But they still are very proud of him. Just like Doug and Brad´s sister Julie also is proud of both of her big brothers. Wonder if she and her hubby Rob Neal were in New York. Probably not since they aren´t pictured with Doug and Lisa.

    MrMarleyFan Says:

    Lisa Pitt looks so different from what I always thought she’d look like. They are a great pair and it must make Jane & Bill Pitt quite happy to have such successful children who take that success and use it to help others. This clan surely lives by “to whom much is giving, much will be required.”

    Oh yeah I forgot. Doug and Angies brother James work together in another humanitarian endeavor and so it’s really one big family humanitarian conglomarate! I love it !

    @Lucky Charm:

    You know what? No kidding you here; I thought that too! Something about her made me think the same thing. I was more along line of them being the more conservative version. Lisa just does not look anything like I thought. All this time I had this no as pretty version of Jennifer Connolly in my mind. I thougt Lisa was more slender with dark hair.

    The whole damn family has Put major pressure on Angelina. I’ve read that the sister adopted 2 ethiopian kids and now the bro is an Ambassador. RUN ANGIE. This is a leach family. no wonder she looks so unhappy. she is stuck with a load of copy cats.

  83. 83
    lololol Says:

    Another point to her impulsive behavior. She allowed this guy to be a part of her Foundation that was the JOLIE FOUNDATION before she acted on impulse and added Brad pitt’s name. this is one very bright reason she hasn’t dumped Brad yet. She has too much of HER stuff wrapped up with him and his family. MIR even got the initial 5 million from “brad’s Pocket” from the jolie (bleck pitt) Foundation. BIG mistake Angie. she got herself into a pickle with this redneck family this time.

    Congrats to Mr Doug Pitt/ To me it seems like the senior Pitts have definily raised their children right!Doug should reap the benifits of his own hard work! Yes he has a famous brother and an exceptial sister in law. But he would not be where he is unless he was totally committed! Look, I adore the JP:S, but let us give Doug the credit he deserves. The Pitts were taught to care, to respect and to not judge . By the example being displayed by their children, Bill and Jane have a lot to be proud of. Blessings on them all
