Quickly trying to make an exit from the paparazzi mob, Brad Pitt was spotted arriving into LAX Airport in Los Angeles, CA on Friday (March 23).
The 48 year-old big screen star was casually dressed for his week-ending travels while clad in aviator sunglasses and an all charcoal colored ensemble as he was escorted out to his car.
In career news, Pitt is currently on break from filming, which gives him more time to focus on his other passion – the “Make It Right Foundation.”
The charitable organization, which was started up by the actor to help those in the ninth district of New Orleans who suffered loss from Hurricane Katrina, is building safe, sustainable and affordable homes for the victims.
In a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the Hollywood icon explained that, even though he has put in countless hours and tons of effort towards this cause, there are many people to thank, saying, “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 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.”
If you didn’t get a chance to catch the interview on it’s original March 20th air date on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” you can watch it below!
Heading out to raise much-needed funds as the rebuilding efforts pushes forth, Brad Pitt was joined by Angelina Jolie at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday night (March 10).
The Hollywood power couple turned up at the locale so that the “Moneyball” actor could team up with Ellen DeGeneres to co-host the charity fete titled “A Night to Make It Right”.

With other stars joining in on the money raising efforts including Sean Penn, Spike Lee, Josh Brolin and Kevin Spacey, the star-studded affair also boasts an afterparty with actor-comedian Aziz Ansari playing host while Kanye West, Snoop Dogg and the Soul Rebels are among those taking the stage.
Talking to Reuters about whether it was difficult to get big names to come to New Orleans, Pitt laughingly replied, “Even though these people don’t like me that much, it really was simple.”
“They carved this time out of their schedule strictly for this event, and came on their own dime,” he added. “We have so much incredible talent that wanted to come and support the city – it’s going to be like a mini-Grammys show.”"
After hitting up the local McDonald’s to fuel up for the day, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt went their separate ways on what was a busy Saturday afternoon (March 3) for the Tinseltown power couple.
As for the “Salt” actress, Miss Jolie was relegated to mommy mode while being spotted at the El Capitan Theatre to watch the Disney film “The Secret World of Arrietty” with Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
Meanwhile, the “Moneyball” hunk tended to a cause in which he believes in by partaking in the one-night reading of ’8′ presented by The American Foundation For Equal Rights & Broadway Impact.
Taking place at The Wilshire Ebell Theatre, ’8′ was written by Dustin Lance Black while documenting the landmark federal trial of California’s Proposition 8.
With the live reading held in support of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, other stars joining in on the effort included George Clooney, Matt Bomer, John C. Reilly and a trio of “Glee” stars in Chris Colfer, Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison.
Grabbing a quick bite to eat, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were spotted at a McDonalds in Los Angeles, CA this morning (March 3).
The famous family made a stop at the drive thru while ordering a few bags of food and some morning cups of coffee to boost their energy.
The java jumpstart is much-needed, as packing up the Jolie-Pitt brood of six children is not the easiest of tasks – and the “Tomb Raider” star recently gave us a peek inside their world of parenting.
In an interview with OK! magazine, the Academy Award winning actress said, “I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins, Brad’s had to play bad cop more often.”
Jolie also added that it’s not always hard work, “saying, Our happiest moments are probably in the evening before the kids go to bed. We often play together in our pajamas after dinner and it’s like having a party sometimes where we’re all dancing and jumping around and being silly. That’s when you really feel the beauty of having a family. It’s our little world.”
Helping his growing son in his quest towards musicianship, Brad Pitt took Madox over to the local Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA on Thursday (March 1).
The Oscar nominated actor joined Maddox in checking out the shop’s stock – with the pair later exiting with a staffer toting their newly purchased guitar and amplifier.
The father/son excursion comes just as it’s being reported that Pitt will be joining the cast of the West Coast premiere reading of 8 – which is “a play penned by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (Milk) that follows the legal fight to overturn Proposition 8, the California law that outlawed gay marriage,” according to CBS.
As for Brad’s role, he’ll be playing United States District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker, with other stars lined up to take the stage alongside the “Fight Club” actor including George Clooney, Jamie Lee Curtis, Matthew Morrison, Kevin Bacon, Jane Lynch and John C. Reilly.
Of the effort, AFER board president Chad Griffin said in a statement, “At long last each and every American will be able to see for themselves what happens when prejudice and fear are put on trial in a court of law. For over two years, the anti-marriage proponents of Proposition 8 have fought tooth and nail to hide their discriminatory arguments from the American people. But on Saturday night, thanks to YouTube and our incredible cast, people across the nation, from Los Angeles to Little Rock to Baltimore, will get to watch as our Constitution’s promise of liberty and equality for all is protected.”
The couple met on the set of ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ in 2005 and Angelina believes the time has come to join forces once more.
Speaking from the red carpet at Sunday (February 26) night’s Oscars, Angelina, 36, said of the collaboration: ”We’re talking about it. We have an idea.”
But the mother-of-six – who wore a black custom-made strapless Atelier Versace velvet gown with a thigh high slit, Salvatore Ferragamo heels and platinum Neil Lane jewellery for the ceremony – insists it will not be a romantic comedy.
She told E! News: ”We don’t know how funny we are. And you never know what you want to see an actual couple do. Sometimes it’s better if they’re not a couple.”
Attending to support Brad – who was nominated for Best Actor for his role in ‘Moneyball’ – Angelina also presented the award for Best Adapted Screen Play to Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash for ‘The Descendants’, and Best Original Screenplay which went to Woody Allen for ‘Midnight in Paris’.

Coming up tonight, Brad will compete for Best Actor and Best Picture for his acting and producing work on “Moneyball.”
As for the other nominees, “Hugo” is up for 11 Oscars, while “The Artist” has 10 nods, “War Horse” scored 6 nominations, and “The Descendants” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” each have 5 chances for greatness.

Making yet another stop on her overseas press tour, Angelina Jolie looked radiant as she took to the red carpet alongside partner Brad Pitt in Paris on Thursday night (February 16).
The 36-year-old actress donned a dashing Ralph & Russo gown as her Gucci clad mate arrived for the French premiere of “In the Land of Blood and Honey”.
The Parisian stop comes after Angelina premiered her directorial work in Sarajevo earlier this week, during which time she told the AP, “I wanted people across the world to watch this movie and say, ‘That is a family like mine, that is a mother like me.’ So when they see a headline that says a bomb went off in Aleppo [in Syria] they think of the characters in this film and they think they are related to them and they maybe feel that much more invested.”
The brunette beauty added, “This film has taught me to love film again because I see what film can do … and I am re-inspired because I was not feeling very inspired as an actress. I was feeling very disheartened.”
