Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols: The Gulf Needs Our Help!

Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols: The Gulf Needs Our Help!

One Tree Hill stars (and real-life couple) Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols join Global Green USA on a tour of Grand Isle, Louisiana on Monday (June 21) to look at the impacts of oil spill.

The couple checked out the oil spill by boat at the Bridgeside Marina and then had lunch at the Barataria Restaurant before attempting to clean up one of the beaches. Later in the afternoon, they helped a group called the Bucket Brigade with some mapping of the spill.

The day after, they returned to New Orleans to meet with city officials and tour the Global Green Holy Cross Project in the Ninth Ward built according to top energy saving standards, and meet with Global Green staff and supporters for an assessment of actions and activities.

Find out how you can help by following Sophia and Austin on Twitter @SophiaBush and @Aus10Nichols!

    What they are doing is so amazing! Love them both!

  • Ethan

    I was wondering how long it was going to take for celebrities to gather for another “important event.” Why didn’t they gather from the beginning?

    I going eating ^ ^ c u

  • katie90

    They’re not using this for publicity. They’ve always been involved in this stuff. If you saw the video of them helping out there with people and the article that came out, you wouldn’t be too quick to talk. They’ve been there a while now…JJ post it now but it’s been a while and they’re genuinely caring people and they’ve always cared for the environment. Instead of judging in front of your pc, get off ur seat and start helping.

  • Janice

    Great to see them using their time off from One Tree Hill to do good. They helped raise quite a bit of $$ and awareness.

  • Annah

    Good for them! I was also surprised that more celebs weren’t speaking out about the Gulf.

  • TL

    I love her – one of the least self-absorbed celebs out there. Austin’s looking really cute lately.

    Grand Isle local puts word out.

  • Michelle

    Anyone who is criticizing should really get their f*ckin heads checked out. When a disaster is taking place, all I see is various people online complaining about how celebrities aren’t doing anything to help out and crap like that. And that all they care about is their money and fancy cars. Yet the second a celebrity starts to help, you have these SAME morons jumping up and down yelling how the celebrities are only doing it for publicity. You all sound like a bunch of imbeciles and should consider getting brain transplants seeing as how your brains clearly don’t seem to work.
    Sophia and Austin did a WONDERFUL thing by coming down to the Gulf Coast to spread awareness of all of the damage that took place AND they also revealed some things that BP wanted to keep hidden…..like the fact that they were burning sea animals like turtles. I live in Louisiana and I am thrilled about all Sophia and Austin did for us because as someone who lives here, I’ll be the first to say that A LOT more awareness was brought to the Gulf because of what they did as well as due to Ian Somerhalder and Larry King.
    They all used their celebrity power for good and kudos to them.
    What’s sad is the way most of Hollywood just ignored and continued to ignore what’s going on down here.
    So no one should even consider criticizing those who are actually willing to help.

  • katie90

    @Michelle: Exactly what I think. They criticize celebrities if they don’t care and if they’re helping they just want publicity. They all just criticize. I discovered lots of things by watching that Louisiana video with Sophia and Austin and I wish I could actively help but I’m from Italy and it’s a LONG way for me to got there but when you see people like that who aren’t afraid of speaking up and could care less about being celebrities then you have a little more hope in this world.

  • alison

    u guys need to stop bashing people who are helping and start bashing celebs who don’t do anything. sophia and austin are helping and making a difference! very inspirational

  • NE Sports Fan

    Good for them..I love seeing people, famous or not, doing good! Great couple!!

  • Wow

    @Baci:
    Stop hating you Chad obsessed freak. Go to his post to lick his douchy a$$.
    You wanna know what they’ve done?? Anyone who has been working with them down in New Orleans and has talked with them about what they’ve seen will be the first ones to tell you that both Sophia and Austin have been nothing but extremely helpful in making more people aware of the oil spill while donating their time and money to help those who are currently suffering. They’ve also been working with Global Green nonstop to help bring more awareness throughout the country as well as in the world. It’s a lot more than I can for some other people in Hollywood who haven’t even batted an eyelash ever since news broke out about the oil spill.
    Nothing is ever good enough for the haters. You losers are just pathetic.

  • april

    it’s crazy how obsessed people are with hating her, can’t u find something better to do than bash celebs on the internet. u are nasty and disgusting.

  • Jess

    @ChadLucasFan: AHHHHHHhahahahahahahahahahahaha man everything you said was soooo funny. The reason chad doesnt go to anything and doesnt have pics taken of him is because he is a BIG A** LOSER dont you inderstand that. NOOOOO one likes him or wants him anymore he sucks!! And dont be mad because Sophia’s career is taking off and she will get work after OTH but chads is coming to an end he had to write a stupid ass book that wont sell. And For you losers that dont know sophia and austin have prob. done more than any other cleb when it comes to the oil spill. they are not just doing it for the pub. all they want to do is raise awarness and raise as much money as they can for the cause.

  • mary

    I love this post, OTH fandom couldn’t wait to post what they really thought about Sophia. You guys are so pathetic and If I hate someone I don’t follow their twitter or click on posts about them but some of you have nothing better to do then bash people who actually do something.

    FYI people actually got some great informations through Sophia’s tweets. I’d rather learn something new then read what celebs had for breakfast.

  • Anne

    He’s hella ugly not cute at all.
    She on the other hand is <3

  • HELP!!!!

    They are doing an amazing thing!
    Everyone who does something to change something for the better is doing something amazing!

    @ChadLucasFan: and @ewwww:
    Do you really think what you are doing is mature or even clever for that matter??
    There is no need to come back and make ridiculous comments one after the other. If you have something nice to say then say it. If not, then don’t bother.
    Try being more respectful next time instead of carrying on like little children.

  • Jayla

    Thanks, Austin and Sophia! You are making a difference!

  • NE Sports Fan

    Jared thank you for that comment! It amazes me that people come here to hate on people and say such stupid & ignorant things while hiding behind their computers. This post has nothing to do with Chad versus Sophia so people need to just stop. Didn’t anyones mother’s teach them that if you have nothing nice to say, than say nothing at all! Shame on you people!

    p.s. Thanks for the post on them. I absolutely adore Sophia & Austin! I think it’s great that they are trying to make people more aware & help these people!

  • Katie

    SOPHIA BUSH ROCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!
    I LOVE HER!!!!!

  • …..

    Everytime i see this guy i just wanna kick his goofy ass face with that stupid grin. How can she always dates those ugly morons is beyond me.. Sophia, find yourself a REAL man!

  • Kelz

    For the person wh said why didn’t Sophia put on a wet suit to plug the oil spill herself. Well if you actually knew what the f*ck you were talking about then you would know that BP isn’t allowing anyone, not even the locals to help them with anything. The reason for this is that BP knows that if they let others who don’t work for BP help them out, then there secrets and all the sh*t they’ve been pulling down in the Gulf will be revealed. If you bothered to turn on the news or pick up a newspaper you would know that. BP doesn’t want anyone getting involved and anyone who dares to help is threatened by saying they will be arrested. The fact that Sophia and Austin have posted many pictures, have told people what BP has been doing, have asked people to call their senators and demand they do something, among a hundred other things is more than enough. And to say that actors and actresses have no clue whatsoever about oil spills and the environment is a really stupid thing to say. Especially seeing as how several of them are well educated and just because a person works in Hollywood, does not mean they don’t know anything about anything else. That’s a really dumb thing to assume.
    And btw, just because this is something the government and people behind the oil spill need to fix, doesn’t mean they will do things the way they should unless more people become aware of the situation and let the government know they need to take the proper steps to fix the problem. Even a moron knows that the government has effed up plenty of times.

  • RJ

    Well said, Kelz. Celebs like Austin and Sophia help keep this crisis in the forefront of people’s minds. BP would like nothing more than for the focus to shift to something else. Let’s keep the pressure on them.

  • Grow Up

    @ewww:
    Shut the f*ck up you stupid hag.
    Seriously, what the hell is wrong with idiots like you?? If you don’t like someone, then why WASTE so much effing time posting about them when you can be reading crap about celebrities you do like and write about them instead.
    Honestly, the haters always make me laugh my asss off. They sit there claiming they don’t like someone, yet spend so much f$cking time commenting on them and reading their posts that it’s become unbelievably pathetic.
    Just move the f&ck on and get over it.
    And FYI, Sophia has been donating a lot of money to various charities for years. Greg Prange confirmed that to a couple of fans last year when they were talking about the cast. One of the girls I know from the forums was among the fans. This time Sophia actually went public with donations and the Gulf because the whole point of this was to bring more awareness to the Gulf Coast through her Twitter account.
    And who the f&ck cares about publicity and sh&t. Point is, she has helped bring a lot of awareness. Period. In fact, I have made several friends on the internet through forums over the years and stuff who live in other countries and have said they had absolutely no idea what was going on in Gulf Coast and have even made donations to links that Sophia, Austin, Ryan Seacrest and Larry King have all posted. A lot of Sophia fans who live in other countries throughout the world have voiced how they had no idea of the spill and they’ve actually made contributions……even they don’t live in the U.S. And the only reason they found out about it was because of Sophia’s twitter account as well as listening to her interviews and seeing the pictures she posted of the oil spill. That alone speaks volumes. This is why she was going for 50,000 on twitter. She knew that the more people who followed, the more they would want to contribute and help out the folks in the Gulf. And so far, it HAS worked. Especially when you look at all of the signatures of people on the petitions that Sophia provided the links to as well as all of the money people have donated.
    So I would think twice before going another idiotic rant.

    @Just Jared:

    1. I am a regular reader of this site and have never seen Just Jared comment on some of the really nasty comments made about other celebrities. Why so protective of Sophia Bush? I would appreciate an honest answer.

    2. This is the US, not some third world country. Last I heard, people are entitled to their opinion and can express it whenever they want. It’s called freedom of speech. After all this is a gossip blog not a courtroom, right?

    3. To those who can’t string two sentences together without saying “fu*k”. get an education and expand your vocabulary. It will help you express yourself better….hopefully!

  • Jessica

    Well for starters, even though this is a blog about celebrities, some people still take it entirely too far when it comes to bashing celebrities. Yes, there is a such thing as Freedom of Speech in this country, but some people get of control and the things they say are just plain nasty and cruel. Imagine yourself in that postion. Yes, they are celebrities which means people will always talk about them, but if you were in their shoes, would you want people dishing out such nasty comments about you? No. Stating your opinion is fine, but there is no need to be so cruel or rude when doing so. And FYI, I’m on JJ everyday during my free time and he sometimes drops in on posts when people are getting out of hand. Second, just because a person swears, does not mean they don’t have an education. I’m currently in my second year of law school but when I’m with my friends or when I’m online, I cuss……a lot. It’s a form of speech and believe it or not, plenty of really educated people swear all the time. So you may want to get out into the real world here and there and check it out.

  • hokiegirl517

    THANK S JARED FOR THE POST!!!! LOVE SOPHIA BUSH!!!!

  • hokiegirl517

    Jared, you may need to have an age requirement in order to post to your website as it appears some childish individuals have entirely too much time on their hands!!! Some people need to get a job, boyfriend, and/or friends!!!

  • Liz

    Lol. Okay first of all, THANK YOU Jared for calling the retarded psychos out on their bullsh*t. You got love the haters. They are so damn stupid that you can’t help but laugh at their antics. Second, now that this Chad fan clearly brought a few things up, I thought I should respond seeing as how the idiot’s post really made me laugh at her sheer stupidity.
    You don’t like Sophia’s movies?? Fine. You don’t have to. But some of those movies did pretty darn well at the box office and three of them earned her 3 Teen Choice Awards in the same year. So the way I see it, she did something right seeing as how so many people voted for her to win. They clearly saw something her performance to make them want to vote for her and for the people who run the TCA’s to give her not one, but 3 awards.
    You also say Sophia will never be the star of On Tree Hill. Lol. Are you HIGH???
    Because I don’t know where the f*ck you’ve been living, but Sophia IS the star of OTH. You do realize that she is the only one besides Chad who is very well knows by fans and the media alike? But whereas Chad is always ridiculed for well…..just being him. Sophia, on the other hand, is always praised by the media and always maintain how she deserves so much better than OTH. Even Perez Hilton, a guy who makes fun of just about everything and anything, has said that Sophia is TOO GOOD for OTH and deserves better.
    And if Chad really was this huge star of OTH like you claim, then there would have been no chance in hell that the network along with the people behind OTH like Mark Schwahn would have continued on with a season 7 and now a season 8 without Chad. Yet THEY DID.Lol
    And notice that Joy is the only one who said she is good friends with Chad whereas everyone else could really care less?? I mean, James and the rest of the cast and crew were thrilled to have gotten rid of him.Lol
    And I love the way you’ve decided that you’re a fortune teller and that you really believe Chad will automatically have a great career in “2 years.” Give me a f*ckin break. I’ve seen the guy literally make lists for being one of the worst actors on television. And do you really think that he is actually taking a break?? PLEASE. It is a known fact that ever since Chad left OTH, he’s been to numerous auditions to try and get movie roles and yet the douchebag still hasn’t had any luck. So now if you call that “taking a break” then that’s just hilarious. And your logic about “being the star of the show” made him tired really cracked me up because A) He only worked two days a week during the filming of season 6 except for when he directed an episode or two AND he wasn’t that prominent during season 6 unlike the earlier seasons. So don’t make laugh harder at your so called logic by saying such incredibly stupid things. You have numerous other celebrities who film their tv shows and do movies at the SAME time all year round, so don’t feed me that “he is tired and is taking a break” bullsh*t.
    And I really fail to see why Sophia would wish she had the same talents that Chad has(especially seeing as how he doesn’t have any) and leaving him was the smartest thing she ever did and she clearly doesn’t regret it. I mean, who the hell wants to stay married to a cheating husband while constantly looking over her shoulder and wondering who and when her husband was going to sleep with next??
    And FYI, it’s clear to anyone with a brain, that you’re responsible for the majority of the nasty comments…..especially seeing as how they’re one right after the other and the fact that Jared called you out on it. You are a SAD, SAD and pathetic excuse for a human being.

    Oh, and for future reference, this back and forth bit won’t continue if people get the good sense to leave Sophia and Chad out of each other’s posts. He was brought up, and so I felt like I had to say something due to some HILARIOUS comments on here. LMAO.

  • Baci

    @Liz:

    Hey Sophia!!

  • Misha

    @Baci:
    Hey Chad!
    You sure LOVE lurking on Sophia’s posts on JJ.
    This is what like your third post???

  • Baci

    @Misha:

    Aww, you noticed! Wow look who is stalking me.

  • Misha

    @Baci:
    LMAO. You wish.
    I had just finished reading through the comments when I recognized your name along with your dumba$$ comments from this Sophia post and other Sophia posts on JJ.
    I’m a SOPHIA FAN. Which means that I read every post there is about her on this website.
    You on the other hand……well you’re just pathetic. Who the hell spends so much time reading about someone and repeatedly checking up on comments about a person they claim to hate? Now thats what I call stalking. You may want to read up on the definition of “stalking” and “stalker” in the dictionary again- just so it would be a bit more clear to you since you seem to have forgotten what it means. ; )
