In a very inspiring episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen met up with Brad Pitt in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward to see the fruits of the Make It Right foundation.  It’s truly remarkable how the community was built back up after Hurricane Katrina left it completely leveled.

“I’m getting far too much credit for this,” Pitt told DeGeneres as they walked through the neighborhood.  Pitt was constantly greeted by residents, one calling out “Long time, no see!”  

“This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation,” Pitt continued.  “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.”
