On warm days like we are now experiencing now, in the Erie region, water is something we all need. We have access to clean drinking water, but that’s not the case in other parts of the world, like in Africa.

In Erie, the mother of Hollywood Actor Brad Pitt, teamed up with her daughter, to help raise money and awareness for clean drinking water.

The two travel across the world, and on Wednesday, they were at the Kahkwa Club for a luncheon called “Let It Pour.” Julie Pitt Neal is a mother of five. Two of her children are adopted from Ethiopia. Her brother, Doug Pitt, works with the organization Africa 6000 International.

The Erie event helped raise funds for Africa 6000 so that a deep, clean water well can be drilled in Ethiopia.

While Brad Pitt’s name has appeared in plenty of headlines over the past two months, the actor himself hadn’t made a public appearance since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce — until Wednesday night.

Pitt was back in the spotlight when he hit the red carpet for a fan event celebrating his new World War II drama “Allied.”

The 52-year-old actor didn’t address the split, but made a brief comment about the warmth he’d received from fans while signing autographs.

“It’s really sweet,” Pitt said during an interview. “Everybody’s been very kind out here. It’s really nice to have the support.”
Pitt seemed in good spirits during the chat, which was streamed on Facebook.

When asked if there was a past movie from “Allied” director Robert Zemeckis that he wished he’d had a part in, he smiled and said, “(Who Framed) Roger Rabbit.”

While this was the “Fight Club” star’s first red carpet since his split from Jolie, it wasn’t the first opportunity to attend a premiere.

The actor skipped the Sept. 28 premiere of “Voyage of Time,” telling People in a statement, “I’m currently focused on my family situation.”

Pitt was recently cleared of child abuse allegations after an investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.

Sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News, “The allegations were not substantiated after interviews with family members, including the children.”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have sold their home in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
Documents filed with the Land Records Division of the Orleans Parish Clerk of Court’s Office show the property sold for $4.9 million.

Pitt and Jolie purchased the home in 2007 after Hurricane Katrina for $3.5 million. The couple, who are divorcing, bought it after Pitt established the Make It Right Foundation to fuel development of new housing in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward neighborhood.

According to the listing, the three-story, 1830s-era mansion has 7,645 square feet, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half-baths.

Listing agent Nina (NIGH’-nuh) Killeen confirmed the sale closed Friday. She says, “It sold for a very fair price. It’s a good deal for both parties. They’re happy with the outcome.”

Brad Pitt has spoken out about his divorce from Angelina Jolie.

In a statement released to PEOPLE, Pitt said his focus is on the “well-being of our kids.”

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” he said in the statement. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

Jolie filed for divorce from the actor, 52, on Monday after just two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jolie also released a statement addressing the divorce: “This decision was made for the health of the family,” the actress’ attorney said. “She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”

It has been a while since we last heard of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six children—Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox—and their charmed, globe-trotting existence. At the time, they were exercising their humanitarian muscles, casting shade on their parents’ “ridiculously easy” careers, and, taking a cue from their mother, learning about the world’s many, varied cultures. And now, perhaps knowing that the well for Jolie-Pitt-family fantasy fiction was drying up, the Oscar-winning actress has kindly bestowed a few more details about her children.

In a segment on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour on Friday morning, which she guest-edited, Jolie revealed how her children have only become more accomplished since we last heard of them.

“All the kids are learning different languages,” Jolie revealed. “I asked them what languages they wanted to learn and Shi is learning Khmai, which is a Cambodian language, Pax is focusing on Vietnamese, Mad has taken to German and Russian, Z is speaking French, Vivienne really wanted to learn Arabic, and Knox is learning sign language.”

(And now, a moment for us to pause and imagine the six Jolie-Pitt children chattering around the dinner table in different languages as Brad, still stuck on Rosetta Stone’s second Spanish lesson, pleads, “English, please!”)
