Acting is very close related to Hollywood hunk Brad Pitt. He can do and be anything on screen. But can he, in real life, rebuild New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina? It sounds impossible for the actor to do it alone and upon realizing his limitation he then brings into life his willingness to rebuild the city by conducting "green" designs contest.

Pitt announced Thursday April 20th, 2006 that he has teamed up with national environmental group Global Green USA, sponsoring the Sustainable Design Competition for New Orleans, a contest to find an Earth-friendly plan for housing and community centers in New Orleans.

"This competition asks the question, can this catastrophe be turned into opportunity?" Pitt said while adding "Can we create for these neighborhoods and its families something even better than they had before? We encourage anyone with an idea to get involved." Other actors also been involved in Global Green's efforts to rebuild New Orleans are Leonardo DiCaprio and Morgan Freeman.
