Brad Pitt recently took Ellen DeGeneres on a tour of New Orleans to show her the work his organisation – Make it Right – has been doing to help people whose lives and homes were devastated after Hurricane Katrina.

Brad Pitt’s knowledge of the area and the people – and his passion for both – is incredible. Have a look.

He’s humble too. At one point during the tour he says: “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.”

Brad channels a hit man for Interview magazine.
