January 29 Pitt and Jolie contribute to $5.5 million Joplin donation

A foundation has distributed more than $5.5 million in donations that poured into Joplin after a May 2011 tornado.

The Joplin Tornado Fund administered by the Community Foundation of Southwest Missouri received just over $6 million in donations from sources as diverse as children’s lemonade stands to $500,000 from celebrities Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

Stephanie Howard, president of the foundation board, says about 54 percent of the funds went to organizations that rebuilt or repaired the homes of owners who didn’t have insurance or enough insurance, or to federal allocations to re-establish a house or repair all the damage.

The Joplin Globe report groups that helped with mental health and counseling, and those that cared for children while parents dealt with the tornado’s aftermath, also received foundation grants.

December 16 Brad Pitt Works The Crowd @ First Annual Diamond Ball

We knew Brad Pitt had a wicked sense of humor, but who knew he was capable of making Rihanna blush?!

Friday the 50-year-old actor made a bit of a surprise appearance at the First Annual Diamond Ball at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills, which benefitted Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the event and introduced Brad, who then gave a speech and introduced Rihanna. But it wasn’t just any speech — it was more of a roast!

Angelina Jolie’s hunky hubby started off in a very serious tone, and as an image of a very young Rihanna appeared on the screen behind him, he said, “I’ve often asked the very questions you yourself are asking right now—what the f*ck went wrong?”

“I give you exhibit A,” he said. “Look at the young girl before you, all full of hopes and dreams, living a humble existence in Barbados, her whole life ahead of her.” Pitt added that RiRi “soon fell in with a bad crowd led by the dubious and nefarious character known as The Jay Z.”

“For those you not in the know, The Jay Z was an evil impresario known for turning out hit records and ripping insane lyrics and fresh beats,” Brad continued. “Needless to say it was all downhill from there.” Brad then praised Rihanna for selling 54 millions albums, winning seven Grammys and having “only 90 million Facebook fans and 40 million Twitter followers,” but when a Photoshopped image of an overweight Rihanna on a couch popped up behind him, Brad joked, “I ask that we stand together by her side and show her our support and our love and say to her the hard words, ‘Rihanna put down that sandwich, get off your *ss and do something. God damn it, just do something with your life.'”

December 07 Rihanna Enlists Brad Pitt for Her Inaugural Diamond Ball

When Rihanna performs at her first annual Diamond Ball next month in L.A., she’s going to have one heck of an introduction.

None other than Brad Pitt will introduce the “Stay” singer at the gala, which benefits Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) and takes place on Dec. 11.

It was also announced today that Jimmy Kimmel will host the soiree.

“It is such an honor to have Jimmy Kimmel host this event. There is no one more hilarious to make the first annual Diamond Ball an incredible night. I’m blessed by his support,” Rihanna said in a statement. “Brad Pitt is not only a phenomenal talent, but I admire him and am inspired by his philanthropic work.”

CLF, named in honor of Rihanna’s grandparents Clara and Lionel Brathwaite, works to improve the lives of underserved communities worldwide in the areas of health, education, the arts and culture.

June 14 Brad Pitt Turns Up To Support Angelina Jolie At Global Summit To End Sexual Violence

Brad Pitt turned up to support other half Angelina Jolie earlier today, as she attended day three of the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence in Conflict, taking place in London.

The Maleficent star and Foreign Secretary William Hague will address the heads of eight United Nations agencies, approximately 1,000 experts and 100 representatives from countries around the globe at the Summit, with the last conference taking place tomorrow at the ExCel.

Hollywood star Angelina kicked off the conference on Tuesday and she said, as part of her speech: “It is a myth that rape is an inevitable part of conflict.”

“There is nothing inevitable about it. It is a weapon of war aimed at civilians. It is nothing to do with sex, everything to do with power. It is done to torture and humiliate innocent people and often very young children. I have met survivors from Afghanistan to Somalia and they are just like us, with one crucial difference: we live in safe countries with doctors we can go to when we are hurt, police we can turn to when we are wronged, and institutions that protect us,” the mother-of-six continued.
