On an episode of Ellen that will air today, Brad Pitt takes New Orleans native Ellen DeGeneres on a tour of her hometown, specifically the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged section of the 9th Ward.
The stars talk about Pitt’s Make It Right organization during the visit, which is dedicated to building sustainable, affordable homes for citizens in the area.
“I’m getting far too much credit for this,” Pitt says modestly of the project, which has constructed 75 houses so far. “This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation. It took the families determined to come back [after Hurricane Katrina] 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.”
Watch the emotional video now and try not to hate both Pitt and George Clooney for being so attractive and so kind-hearted:
