  • SEE Brad's new silver goatee as he visits politicians in Washington DC

    Brad Pitt showed off an ageing silver goatee yesterday, while visiting politicians in Washington DC.

    The Oscar-nominated actor was in DC to meet with the leader of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, to speak about his New Orleans charity, Make it Right, which builds low-cost, environmental housing for those who lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina.

    Three years ago, Pitt pledged £3.4million to help rebuild the devastated area. Since then, 150 eco-houses have been built and there are more in the pipeline.

    Since Obama took office, the government has promised a further $438million to help regenerate New Orleans and the other Gulf Coast communities who were hit hardest by Katrina.
