Super-star Brad Pitt takes TV host Ellen DeGeneres on a charity visit of New Orleans
We know that on top of having a sizeable family and super-human good looks, Brad Pitt also has a big heart – and here’s the proof. The American super-star spent the weekend showing US television host Ellen DeGeneres around the city that he and partner Angelina Jolie have made their hometown, New Orleans, visiting the victims of 2005’s devastating Hurricane Katrina.
The Oscar-nominated actor took Ellen to the Lower Ninth Ward to see the eco-friendly and hurricane-resistant homes he has built via his Make It Right Foundation.
On Saturday evening, Pitt changed out of his civvies and into a smart suit to host a fundraising gala, attended by the likes of Blake Lively, Sean Penn and Kevin Spacey, who were treated to perfomnaces by Kanye West, Jamie Foxx and Rihanna.
