Brad Pitt's 'Ellen' Interview in New Orleans - Watch Now!

Ellen DeGeneres meets up with Brad Pitt in the lower ninth ward in New Orleans, La., for an interview airing Tuesday (March 20).

The 48-year-old actor and Ellen discussed the progress of his Make It Right organization, which builds safe, sustainable, and affordable homes for working families.

“I’m getting far too much credit for this. This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation. It took the families determined to come back [after Hurricane Katrina] and their resilience and they’re defining what this thing was going to be. I get far too much credit for bringing some really smart people together,” Brad shared.

He also dished that one of his kids with partner Angelina Jolie might have a future in architecture!

    That’s just great! I see Brad is following Angie’s style advices; only wear black!

    Well done to Brad and all involved in MIR!
    Making such a difference.

  • wow

    Brad is amazing.

  • Sean

    He always looks happier when that hag isn’t there

  • busted

    The story makes it seem like this happened today.. It was on March 9th or so.

    Strange how it doesn’t say that.

    well so glad that Brad has stayed with this project. One of the reason the lower ninth is still in the news. I have a friend that lived in NOLA and was there a while ago. She said such great things about Brad and the MIR organization..

    BRAVO Mr. Pitt and Company. well done.. well done

  • George Clooney

    I deserve all credit.

  • anustin

    lookin good poppa pitt!

  • busted


    Well she hasn’t been there in over 7 years. But he has been looking much happier since he and Angie got together.. and he has done more with his life too. That happens when a man is really happy at home. As he said being with Angie make it possible for him to go out and do more.

    I’m sure you know that too.

  • Really Smart People

    - that does not include Brad, of coarse

  • awww

    Brad Pitt you rock.

  • Sadie

    And the people in the 9th ward are like “Why is Brad Pitt here? I haven’t seen him in years.”

  • dawne

    Just shows you that ugly is alway ugly…… boundaries……not children, not that thousands of people died unnecessarily and someone is trying to restore their faith, family and dignity……..just spew.

    First posters on a thread about such good works and they have to spew……….I hope their karma hits them like a hurricane.

  • Carly

    Brad is awesome. I hope there is a clip of inside fund raiser gala. I think Maddox is the one would go into architecture.

  • her future

    Shi keeps making the Washington Monument over and over and over with her blocks.

  • jess

    For sure Ellen looks more manly.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston

    Love this man. He is so humble.

  • EU

    He was a nice person before but I think Angelina made him even better. If he changed his looks he would be perfect.

  • Dc

    Brad is the best! Biggest heart – love him.

  • Tina

    Brad Pitt is perfection.

  • Rose

    I have to say, Brad you are a great and humble man, much respect you. Brad you are in a class by yourself. I’m wondering who is the budding architect, I’m guessing Knox, Viv or Shi.

  • “I get far too much credit”

    He’s thinking about his last few movies.

  • Zenith

    Brad is a visionary. What he does for lower ninth ward in New Orleans is remarkable.

  • Madam

    Perfect man. He’s so fine.

  • Emma

    What an amazing, evolved, wonderful person, not to mention the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen. Brad, I love you, that’s all.

  • I’m melting…

    Doesn’t he just make you melt? Looks and a heart. Wow!

  • F D Jarrell

    I personally don’t care who Brad or Ellen are, I’m just thankful they are still helping in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. Don’t get me wrong, I know who they are, but it’s been almost 7 yrs and we still need the help to rebuild part of our state, doesn’t matter where we live, it’s still OUR state. So, THANK YOU MR PITT AND MS. DEGENERES for helping us put a part of our state and her people back together again.

  • Brigitte

    Angelina lend us Brad again

  • cute

    It is so rare that a man is so gorgeous and also has a heart of gold.

  • DL

    That is a good clip.Sweet Brad good deeds indeed. And yes Go Brad! He looks so handsome. It is great also ellen is publicing this Good for her as well.
    now get rid off the unessessarly manny manny from this thread and let her exist too in her own that is.

  • Lilly

    Atleast he’s one of the people who still care about an important issue that happened. Man, his so fine.

  • F D Jarrell

    Personally, I don’t care who Brad or Ellen are, I’m just thankful they are still helping in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. Don’t get me wrong, I know who they are, but it’s been almost 7 yrs and we still need the help to rebuild part of our state, doesn’t matter where we live, it’s still OUR state. What will affect one part of the state, will also affect the rest of it. So, THANK YOU MR PITT AND MS. DEGENERES for helping us, in any way, shape or form that you think will help keep our state in the public’s view so we can receive the help we need to keep rebuilding. Good or Bad, Louisiana is our home and we want her whole again.

    …`they both rock.

  • Jane

    Why does he always have to look like a old man when he is not filming a movie?

  • lylian

    Bringing over from previous thread:
    Cellmate says George Clooney gave Brad Pitt’s name during arrest
    This is what annoys me about Porgie. Why oh why does he need to use Brad Pitt’s name? I’m sure Brad doesn’t object to having his name associated with this Darfur/South Sudan cause. But the point is that Porgie using Brad’s name is the same as Porgie using Brad’s brand.
    Porgie of all people, should know the value of a BRAND! You just don’t use other people’s brand name/ trademark without his/her express consent.
    It makes me glad that Brad cracked the joke that he and Angelina will get married when George Clooney can!

  • Climberluv

    Wow! I still love this guy!

  • wonder

    Brad, what an amazing human being you are. God bless you and your heart.

    A bit off topic here, but on Dancing with the Stars, the so-called “Latin Brad Pitt” do his number, it wasn’t bad (judge Bruno was licking his chops lol!), but there’s only one Brad, honey.

  • teri

    Brad has done so much to bring awareness to NO and he get’s world wide attention. Love Brad and Angelina.

  • queenbee

    This video is soo great. Brad talks of New Orleans so sweet….I just love this guy!….especially when he talked about his kid going into architechture…..I think its either Shi or Zee….cause he said that he tells them “honey, that’s great..’ when referring to them with Ellen, so it has to be one of his daughters…and Vivienne seems to young to be drawing houses with much potential…though I could be wrong. It’s just soo cute that Brad is trying to encourage one of them in that direction. So sweet.

  • Rose

    @queen bee, I watched the video again. I believe it’s Knox the budding architec because Brad mention he and the kid using crayons.

  • lylian

    The Video of Brad and Ellen is enjoyable viewing. I note that Brad knew the names of the people living in the MIR homes. He’s been a regular visitor.

  • Emma

    Cannot wait for Brad’s next movie, Killing Them Softly (?) or whatever it’s called . . . I just want to sit back and watch THE MAN on screen for two hours and drool into ma popcorn!

  • love MIR


    we love you in NOLA

  • Emma

    The little architect could be Maddox, we know Brad likes his drawings cause he has had them made into jewellery for Angie, but also could be Knox, since he mentions the crayons . . . Knox has some big shoes to fill there, but I think he will do fine.

  • Media Wh@re MANiston


    I agree. It’s Knox.

  • Jones

    Brad Pitt is an amazing inspiration. And I just love how the residents of the Ninth Ward waved and shouted “Hi Brad!” from their balconies and front porches. It’s a testament that Brad KNOWS this community. It’s not a drive-by and photo op situation. He’s intent on making a difference in New Orleans. Go Brad!!
    In the video, Brad says, “I think I got one,” when referencing one of his children following his interest in architecture. I wonder which one of the JP kids is the architect in the making?

    I’m not surprised that Ticky denied that story. The reason she’s only spending $200 a month is because she gets most of the shite for free. She just has her 2 stylists call up the companies and gets comped. Like I keep saying…lips moving = lying…

  • bizzy bee

    Rose, you’re so right. He’s such a humble man, it really lets his personality shine through.

  • DL

    @Emma: It is one of the two maddy or knoxy. Though shi could be too.

  • genius

    knox playes with his poo a couple of times
    and Brad thinks “architect”!
