    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.

    why couldn’t i get this pitt brother since i could not get the other one??? not fair! doug is hot. btw, i think knowx will look like doug but more like grandpa pitt, imo. knox and grandpa pitt look almost identical.

  • happy girl

    makes you wonder what mamma and papa pitt did to raise to such lovely and concerned boys. she and her husband obviously did something right. people should take note.

  • LuckyL

    Awesome, awesome, awesome!! So happy for him! Very handsome too <3<3 So sad bro Brad couldn’t make it!

    Looks like Brad got the looks in the family!

  • Passing Through

    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!!!!


    The GOOD son!

    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

    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.

  • Ana

    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

    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.


    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


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

  • Ana

    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..

  • Jasmine

    Lol before I read the title and little blurb, I was thinking this dude looks like a cross between brad pitt and zach braff haha

  • REM

    @Dug Pit:

    What about Shiloh Pitt. LOL

  • zen2

    Congratulations DOUG! By the way, love your brother!

  • juju-bee

    I bet Angie is a total b-itch to Lisa! I bet Lisa can’t stand her.

  • nasra

    Wow good news! Proud to have one the Pitts as Tanzanian Good will ambassador!! God bless the pitts and hope Brad and Angie’ Wedding bells finally rings!!

  • Raichill

    There is a passing resemblance between the brothers but Doug definitely looks a lot like his mother.

  • http://hotmailaustralia laila

    Great news, he is a credit to his family.

  • http://hotmailaustralia laila

    Actually I can see Brad in Doug, both gorgeous anyway.

  • Anonymous

    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.

  • Rockie

    Dude really went All Out on his DaVince Veneer teeth.
    He seems as vain as his brother, for a non-actor. Although Brad looks to be depressed at the moment (Hobo Look).

  • MrMarleyFan

    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 !

  • MrMarleyFan


    Your day wouldn’t be complete without saying something half past dumb and thisclose to stupid.

  • Lucky Charm


    Is it just me, or does Lisa have a resemblance to Angelina? Doug & Lisa are Brad & Angelina Lite, LOL.

  • MrMarleyFAN

    @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.

  • lololol

    His eyes are soo close set. he looks “SPECIAL”.

  • lololol

    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.

  • lololol

    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.

  • ..thats right Im doin’ ME …

    @Tim Gunn. I think so too..cosign !!
    @Nasra. Thats a GOOD look
    @Ana….whoa girl, just whoa..lolol

  • http://gran brandfan

    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

  • stiger

    This was a definitely superb post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – getting time and true work to generate a good piece of writing… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to obtain something done.

  • Majorie Enslow

    What i don’t realize is actually how you are now not actually a lot more neatly-preferred than you may be right now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus significantly when it comes to this topic, made me for my part consider it from numerous various angles. Its like women and men are not involved except it’s something to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs nice. At all times handle it up!

    I believe this internet site contains some very fantastic information for everyone : D.

  • Carla

    Doug is a lot better looking than Brad — and smart too. The wife seems very proud of being “the wife”. She is very average midwest-looking lady — but seems friendly.
