Brad Pitt Makes It Right in New Orleans

Brad Pitt waves as he speaks with NBC News’ Brian Williams on Friday (August 27) in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 46-year-old actor took Brian to a green home that his foundation, Make It Right, helped build to benefit residents who lost their homes after Hurricane Katrina.

Earlier this week, it was announced that Brad‘s sweetheart, Angelina Jolie, is on the fast track to star in the big screen version of the British miniseries Unforgiven.

    He’s a great guy for helping out in NO and continuing to help when others have lost interest. He sure is showing his age though.

    Coming out of Lukerville to say Brad Pitt is one sexy beast with the face of an Angel as the lady said.
    He and Angie are Royalty. They carry themselves like they are directly descended from a King and Queen. Their posture, their carriage, their speech, their concern for others. Their sincerity. Their genuineness. Their compassion. Their generosity.
    There is no other way to describe them. They both have the heart of an Angel. What a blessing for so many that these two beautiful people found each other and fell in love. They are perfect for each other.
    God bless their love, their loving relationship, their children and keep them both prosperous. Their generosity knows no end. What an amazingly beautiful couple.
    I am so happy for those who have been helped in NOLA thru their efforts. God bless Brad and Angie for doing so much for so many.
    .
    Also saw Harry Connick Jr. on Larry King. What a wonderful man he is as well. The Musician’s Village is looking so beautiful and what a wonderful School of Music they are building there. Katrina was a devastating experience for all the wonderful people in NOLA, but so many Angels have come forth out of this tragedy to help try and restore that incredible city and make it even better than it was.
    .
    Happy belated birthday PT. May you have many more happy ones.

    Brad and Angie is a great couple with a big heart. They share their blessings to the needy. I am sure there will be more blessing to come for this couple. Hope to see them more on screen.

God Bless the Lower 9th Ward and its citizens…past, present and the future, hope you get to come home soon. http://www.makeitrightnola.org/index.php Having 2 architectural engineers just graduated and almost graduated from college, I appreciate Brad bringing together all these architects and engineers so their ideas might make the future greener, healthier and safer for all of us, not to mention it helps with cost in the end. Thanks, Brad!

    you know every one has the right to be stupid but, honest to god, you have more than abused the privilege. please quit while you are ahead.

  • well

    @buhbuhbuhbuh:

    No dear, that is Jennifer Aniston because if you had seen her latest Leno interview and others, it is apparent that Jennifer is on the some sort of drug that makes her hyper-snorty, kicking that leg and plucking that face. (coke-head or meth users?) She rambles on and makes no sense? “Was there an earthquake just now?” —doesn’t know what the hell her own movie about, etc. Now she needs her PR Guru to sit closely and feed her the answers. Flipping ones hair, picking at one’s face constantly, kicking one’s leg over and over and mumbling like a twit isn’t cute, it is a someone hopped up on drugs.

    Brad Pitt visits New Orleans on 5th Katrina anniversary

    The most philanthropic couple in Hollywood is continuing to give of themselves for others in a big way. The deliciously hot Brad Pitt and gorgeous wife Angelina Jolie arrived in New Orleans on the heels of the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the most devastating Natural Disaster ever experienced on US soil.
    PHOTOS: Brad Pitt in pictures

    While in New Orleans, Brad spent some time being interviewed by NBC’s Brian Williams for a special tribute that will air to honor and mourn those affected by Hurricane Katrina on the 5th Anniversary. Part of his interview will feature a rooftop view of one of the homes built by Brad’s organization: “ Make It Right Foundation “.
    VIDEOS: Brad Pitt in videos

    The organization has already built 50 out of a planned 150 eco-homes for residents in the Lower 9th Ward, the area most well known for the slowest government response to them during the Disaster.

    This couple never ceases to amaze me with their big hearts and tireless energy for others. Although they both spent time in New Orleans, Angelina had to leave a little earlier than Brad, and was seen leaving on a jet (probably to get back to their beautiful kids).

    Brad smiled and waved at fans that came out to visit the huge star. He expressed his compassion for the Low Income community and gives a little insight into what motivates him to keep returning here:
    “I see them having barbecues out in the [backyards] and I’m just thrilled.”

    This makes the pictures of Brad, looking ravishing in a blue jean shirt, spending time with the locals in the area all the more heartfelt.

    Brad Pitt looked handsome in denim on denim shooting an interview with Brian Williams in New Orleans today. The segment will air on this Sunday’s Meet The Press. He’s there to talk on the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a topic he spoke passionately about in in Spike Lee’s new documentary which aired this week on HBO. Brad’s Make It Right campaign has so far finished about 50 of the promised 150 eco-friendly homes they set out to build in the area, one of which he toured with Brian this afternoon. While he is focusing his philanthropic efforts in Louisiana, Angelina has had a busy week starting with her visit to Sarajevo. She’ll reportedly make her directorial debut with her movie about the war in Bosnia and she also signed on to star in another project

    Stars Who Stayed the Course Rebuilding New Orleans
    By Hollie McKay

    Published August 26, 2010
    | FoxNews.com

    …..”Brad Pitt and his partner Angelina Jolie sunk some serious cash into the French Quarter by purchasing a mansion in the area, where they live part-time. Two years after the hurricane, Pitt founded the nonprofit housing group Make It Right to build 150 energy-efficient houses in the Lower Ninth Ward – the area hardest hit by Katrina. The actor’s commitment to the project is ongoing. According to a rep from the group, Make it Right has raised $31 million ($5 million of which Pitt donated from his own pocket), and with the enlistment of 21 architects, 50 houses have been re-built, with another 25 set to be completed this year.
    We’re told Pitt also frequently visits the area, stopping by to chat with homeowners……..”
