I am very impressed with Brad Pitt's tenacity in helping out the community of New Orleans following hurricane Katrina. I love it that the houses in the project are green. The whole project is amazing. And once again I love his passion and tenacity for this project.

Pitts love for New Orleans dates back
to when he shot Interview with the Vampire, in the mid-1990s. But his excitement for this project is obvious enough so that I wonder if it is taking over as the central interest in his life.
We were told repeatedly by Pitts handlers that he really doesnt like talking about his famous partner, Angelina Jolie, and their children. I wasnt here to ask about his movie career, but oddly enough, as we end our chat, both subjects come up.
I look out over the houses hes brought to this troubled part of town and ask,Could you see yourself at any point giving up acting to do this?
He pauses a moment, the way celebrities do when they encounter a question they have not been asked before.
Um, sure, he says hesitantly; then, warming to the idea of giving up the grind of being a movie superstar,Im quite excited by this idea of building a future and the direction that were going. Im getting older anyway. I see doing that less and less.
I laugh.Youll have to have something to pass your time.
Oh, Ive got plenty of things to pass my time, he says, and in a reference to the famous family brood, adds,Six of them.
aww, not hard to figure out who held him back in his personal life and who lets him live his dreams, supports him for who is and wants what he wants and does. Go Pitt and Jolie! The JP6 +?!
Take some of that JA-Slate monies and fix your damn site, JJ.
