So generous!

After releasing a statement saying that they were going to support the humanitarian efforts in Haiti after the devastating earthquake, it has now been revealed that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $1 million through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

They donated the money directly to Doctors Without Borders to assist those in need in Haiti.

"It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades," Ange said.

Brad added, "We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care."

    the money was in a trust, from the pics last year from their twins, you know the 14 mil they received. They did not touch any of their money. There are alot of 'stars' that touched their personal bank accounts. regular people that are sending money even though they are unemployed. giving up things to send money. by the way, how much did you send mario, considering that Haiti is right across the water from your beloved cuba?



  9. 9

    they are just truly amazing.



  10. 10

    They are soooo awesome! I'll bet Madonnass gave her 10 cents, too!

    Re: idiscuss – the Camel and his wannabe white wifey dont give a shiz about anybody besides themselves..wasnt that broad just performing for terrorists and their family?so dont expect nothing!



  12. 12

    That is truly and incredibly amazing,I say if you have it why not put it to good use.Bravo Angelina!!!



  13. 13

    ALL CELEB'S SHOULD HUMBLE THEMSELVES TO THIS LEVEL! EVEN IF YOU DONT HAVE MILLIONS, ANY LITTLE BIT WILL HELP! GO TO REDCROSS.ORG TO DONATE!



  14. 14

    Re: idiscuss – and you know this how?



  15. 15

    Go Brad and Ange! It is so easy to donate to this cause - just follow the link that Perez posted… it's legit and it's for such a good cause.



  16. 16

    Ange rocks.

    i don't care what their personal stories are, i don't care what their motivation may or may not have been - GREAT FOR THEM! How VERY VERY GENEROUS!! I am SO HAPPY there are people out there with money that will help others by giving it to those in need.



  18. 18

    Brangelina has made promises like this before, but they don't pay up!

    It's a publicuity stunt



  19. 19

    It's from their trust, not their personal funds. The real "saints" are the everyday people who can barely afford their food/rent and donate their time and money. Not these Hollywood famewhores who have to put out a press statement.



  20. 20

    Wow, makes my $100.00 look puny.
    Every little bit!



  21. 21

    A drop in the bucket for these two, but nonetheless quite a donation! OKAY NOW, FELLOW HOLLYWOOD "STARS", time to follow suit! Let's see how many of the left wing lunatic stars and starlets let go of their money. Should be interesting!



  22. 22

    JAY Z and BEYONCE: PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR ASSES ARE! DONATE MILLIONS to your brothers and sisters.

    THIS WILL BE QUITE TELLING.



  23. 23

    And thats why I love them.That Avatar director,your making tons of coin,donate something will ya.



  24. 24

    That's all nice of them and everything, but 1 million for those two is a drop in the bucket compared to what they have. If they wanted to make large contribution, they should donate something that actually makes them feel like they feel a dent in their money. It'd be like if I pledged a penny. I would not miss a penny.



  25. 25

    Hello…they should donate more!!! CHARITY TAX BREAK!!!



  26. 26

    I hope that this is true!



  27. 27

    Brad and Angie are the best, most generous, HOLLYWOOD couple ever!!! Thanks for all the wonderful things you do!!! xoxoxoxo



  28. 28

    The COUNTY of China only donated $1M total! As much as private citizens Jolie-Pitt. Spain donated $5M. Shows how generous Jolie-Pitt are. Jennifer Aniston, if you want to be "vibrant and independent", can't you shell out even a bit out of your $110M you are sitting on, instead of paying your hair colorist $30k?



  29. 29

    Woww! Bravo!



  30. 30

    Not even a million can make her less of a whore…. sorry your still a HOmewrecker.



  31. 31

    wtf does it matter from what account of theirs this came out of or if it's a drop in their collective bucket, these two are fucking GENEROUS. Madonna and Oprah sjould do the damn same as they are both worth a billion or in M's case, nearly so.

    and really, I only gave $50, but this is a time when I wish I'd have won the lottery, 'cos I match Brangelina's.

    but seriously, where are ALL OF US when there's no disaster? Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and has been for decades. more charity in '10!



  32. 32

    There are many people who do not have to be movie stars that are actually donating a lot of cash right now to help out these people that desperately need it and they do not need to advertise. It just makes me sick for this clowns to advertise all the money they give out, like the LORD said "do not let the left hand know what the right hand is doing". Angelina has been such a piece of trash all of her life that she is trully tying toooooooo hard to make her look like a saint.



  33. 33

    what a joke they made $55 mil last year they are hardly saints



  34. 34

    Wow, thank you Brad and Angelina.
    I have no problem going to see their movies and them making the money they do because they give back to those that made them more than generously.
    Very good people.



  35. 35

    So nice of them to donate from their foundation, which is comprised of mostly other people money, and even more nice of them to make damn sure everyone would know about it. They are just soooo fantastic. GAG



  36. 36

    That's really nice and really beautiful but considering they are both worth over 100 million each, with more movies coming out that will pay them over 10 million each, they should of at least donated 5 million EACH.

    37

    Do these two EVER do anything charitable ANONYMOUSLY? Geez. Anyway, I'm glad $ is getting to those who actually need it - regardless of which celebrity is giving it, or what their true motivations are.



  38. 38

    I feel terrible for these people. This is a major tragedy but am I wrong to say since it's such a poor country, Why oh Why are they popping out babies left and right? That makes no sense at all.



  39. 39

    Re: hateliars – They choose to take their own money and put it in the trust TO BEGIN WITH, so thats 14 million they gave up for charity…much more generous than 1 mil. They coulda kept that $ to begin with



  40. 40

    These people… between the two of them that's fucking pocket change!



  41. 41

    a lot of stars and regular people donated except they don't go to the press and brag about it. there's a different. i actually respect people like sandra bullock - because she just give without releasing a statement. it comes from her heart…not her image. take note, brangelina!!



  42. 42

    Re: Jenfraud – How the fuck do you know if Jennifer donated or not? Are you her personal assistant or accountant? Maybe she doesnt need the world to know that she donated unlike Brad and Angelina who need the extra attention. There are plenty of celebs that donate to charity and the public doesnt know about it. They keep it quiet, which they should. So until you know what your talking about shut your fucking ugly, bitter mouth. I would have definitely paid the money to abort you if you were my kid with that bitter attitude.



  43. 43

    Re: Unbelievable!
    Their foundation is their own money dumbass.
    They don't solicit money from anyone else.
    Every rich person or corporation creates a foundation to disperse their donations moron.
    When have you seen them ask you or anyone else to send money to their foundation?



  44. 44

    Good news. It's great that they care enough to give



  45. 45

    Re: SexyScorpio.. – NO, brad and angelina should spend their money however they want! 1 million dollars will make a big difference. quit complaining, bitch.



  46. 46

    Re: SexyScorpio.. – how the hell would you know a child's attitude whilst pregnant?? idiot…



  47. 47

    they can't afford more than that?



  48. 48

    Re: SexyScorpio.. – The way the Joli-Pitts work is to "shine a light" on a cause…by moving to New Orleans,by donating to Drs. Without Borders etc. They are leading by example and there is nothing wrong with that.

  51. 51

    Is it just me or does her arm kinda look freakishly long… Love them! but i couldnt help but notice that



  52. 52

    Re: SexyScorpio.. – I hate negative people like you, why don’t you appreciate that they are giving money unlike most celebs! And why don’t you add up all the money they have given last year plus the contribution they made hands on. And the fact that they give securities to their adopted children then you will find out that is more then 5 million! They give equally amount of money to charities as we do! Really check it out, the amount of money they gave out last year and the amount of work they have done for the unfortunate people. I think both of them have a good heart! What ever money they give should be appreciated not criticised. Why can’t people like you look beyond their motivations, intensions?



  53. 53

    Re: SexyScorpio.. – With a fan like you, who needs enemies. For the first time I feel sorry for poor Jennifer Aniston. She attracts the sickest supporters.



  54. 54

    Re: Angus8 – thank you I can’t believe people can’t appreciate charity any more!



  55. 55

    Re: maggiegirl – They are raising awareness you dumb shit! Sandra has spoken about her charity work directly before! She might not have spoken directly about it alot like brangelina but she has made it public! Hint: why you know she donates it! Quit hating and just appreciate charity for fuck sake.



  56. 56

    (dont reply back to me haters!) GOOD FOR THEM!



  57. 57

    To be honest, I dont even think that is SO generous. They make millions of dollars PER MOVIE. I think people who make that obscene amount of money should be REQUIRED to give at least that much. It's just disgusting how much movie stars make, honestly. WTF are the world's priorities, that movie stars make that much money. Brad Pitt is a great actors, Angeline Jolie really isn't very talented, either way, I would call them really generous when they donate enough that it actually impact them in some way. Jeez that's like me donating 2$. I think it's good that people in general are trying to help out, I could give less of a shit that celebrities are donating as well, and I wont praise them for donating a tiny fraction of their ridiculous wealth.



  58. 58

    Re: Tobotv2 – If you look at their history they give a lot more money the anyone else. maybe you should stop watching movies? Movies are not only made for usa but also for people around the world, obviously they are going to make that much money! Why DONT you complain about BANKERS who are paid alot to do a bad job.



  59. 59

    Sports stars, actors, musicians, pop stars etc make a lot of money because their movies, music and performances are being watched by billions across the world! Obviously they are going to make a lot of money out of this! Just like some people own shops around the world! They too get paid millions! Don’t like it, stop watching, talking about them period! Our obsession with celebrities makes them millions, hint: why you are on this websites! I think they deserve it (well the ones that do a good job!)



  60. 60

    You dumb Perez they are just doing for the publicity , lots of other celebs donate money , and mind you much more money but they dont falunt it around like that . Fucking homwrecking whore and damn hill billy snowman .



  61. 61

    Re: Tobotv2
    THE DONATION IS NOT ABOUT THE IMPACT (OR LACK OF) IT HAS ON BRAD AND ANGELINA, ITS ABOUT THE IMPACT IT WILL HAVE ON HAITI.
    SO SHUT UP ABOUT BRAD AND ANGELINA, AND THINK ABOUT WHAT A BIG HELP $1 MILLION WILL BE FOR THIS POOR COUNTRY.
    AND THEY ARE USING THEIR FAME TO SPREAD AWARENESS.



  62. 62

    Re: pratima1 – YA CUZ THEY REALLY NEEDED TO SPEND $1 MILLION FOR MORE PUBLICITY. SUUUUUUUURE.

    -
    -
    How do you know she hasn't?
    Not everyone feels the need to publicize their charitable acts.



  82. 82

    Thank you to both. They are so compassionate and are always the first ones to respond to tragedies like this one. I think it is great that she is bringing awareness of the importance to donate and she has always lead by example. I am a huge fan of her and they are both wonderful people. God bless you both and your beautiful children. :)



  83. 83

    Very generous indeed and will go a long way to helping. But I have to say that people in such privilaged circumstances as them SHOULD help generously. And I'm sorry, but does it have to be announced publicly. If they were genuinely wonderful people they would donate privately and anonomously without the press release to go along with it!



  84. 84

    Re: Fatsy – Guess what, YOU can't give $1M so THANK the Jolie-Pitt for doing your part. The USA and France OWE this country of slaves an apology!



  85. 85

    Re: stellagranos – Riiiight, give "discretely" so Aniston doesn't have to show how CHEAP she is.



  86. 86

    Oh, PLEASE. These two earned $55,000,000 last year. Donating $1,000,000 is the equivalent of someone earning $50K to donate $900 - BFD. The charity rule is usually 1/3 of your earning - or $18,000,000 for Brangelina. Keep donating, kids!



  87. 87

    Re: Miss Monroe
    1/3!???????????
    lmaoooo.
    you're ridiculous.
    besides its not like this is the only charity brangelina support.



  88. 88

    Re: Miss Monroe – You are cold hearted, uncharitable moron, just like ANISTON. $1M goes a very long way to the people of Haiti, but that's right, "Charity isn't my thing" is also true for you. SHAME ON YOU. People are dying and you don't give a shit.



  89. 89

    I heard on the news that gisele bundchen donated 1.5 million.

    1/3 of your earnings??? I heard 10%. Either way, 1/3 when you make 60 million, you're still left with ~40 million.

    1/3 when you make $24,000, you're left with $16,000. The people that make 24 grand will miss that $8,000 MUCH MORE than anyone misses 20 million.

    Even 10% is a big donation when you make $24K.

    advertise once again……ridiculous! although helping those in need is wonderful-it should be from the heart-not advertised as much as these two to appear such wonderfully morally fulfilling people! NOT! Give from the heart so God(and/or you Higher self knows - not so people view you the way you self serving PR wants you to be. I give more to those in need in both money and time and have less than you. It would be great if you did this without having ulterior motives! Theres a verse in the Bible about this situation you put yourself in. Reach for your higher self without looking for people to be impressed with you - its degrading. People still don't look past who you really are on the inside - fake. We give more (money and time), with less-becasue its from the heart, no need to advertise. Nice write off too for you? FAKE



  91. 91

    These two really want to help these poor people they need more than their money and prayers if they pray. They need to roll up their sleeves and go there and help dig out these poor lifeless bodies if I had the money I would go and help they are in a position to go and help. I think they are both in between movies right now. Ya right I don't see Angie doing shit maybe Brad but not Angie she does'nt even have to dig she could hand out supplies.

    Wow! They "released a statement"? Whatever happen to the good ol' days when there was a snow storm and you would go out and shovel your walk and the old lady next doors too..? Would you make a statement to her about shoveling her walk? I mean that's great that they help so many disasters in this world, but do they have to report to the press everytime they do so? There are thousands and thousands of us Americans who help out other countries and not with just money. We actually go there and pick up dead bodies, help wounded ppl,and feed the hungry. Why are these two referred to as saints? Helping people in need is one of the greatest feelings you can have, but if you have to have everyone know how much you help others your doing it for the wrong reasons.
