Brad Pitt on 'Make It Right' Foundation: I'm Getting Far Too Much Credit For This

Brad-Ellen

Don't let his good looks fool you, Brad Pitt is as humble as he is handsome! 

The A-List activist tells Ellen DeGeneres that he's getting "far too much credit" for his work with the Make It Right foundation, which was created to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

"This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation," he says. "It took the families determined to come back 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."

The foundation is famous for creating eco-friendly houses to replace those that were destroyed in the ninth ward. Brad is an avid architect fan, so the pairing makes sense -- and may become a family tradition! 

Although he doesn't reveal which of his six kids is into it, he says: "I’m pushing them that way ... When you see them drawing crayon houses. That’s a beautiful house, honey.  Jut keep pushing them."

    Brad and Ellen are great humanitarians. So often those who criticize the most volunteer the least themselves. Anyone who can use their celebrity status or lack of "status" to help others in need is to be commended, period.

    WELL I'm glad he finally spoke up. My friend created and made all the plans for "make it right" after Hurricane Katrina. Once the program was complete, a ceremony was held to honor the people involved. Can you guess who did the "honorary" speech??? NOT MY FRIEND.
