It’s a bit of deja vu with Brad Pitt holding the same interviews with the same people as last year to help celebrate the one-year anniversary of his Make It Right foundation. Last night, the 44-year-old appeared on Larry King Live and — much like he did with Ann Curry a few days before — updated the host on what’s been happening the last 12 months. Here are some highlights:

On the new green homes already up and running:

“This home you see behind me now, the meter right now is currently running backwards. It’s a sunny day, so it’s — right now it’s off the grid. It’s making its own energy. And the family there is going to save 75 percent off their energy bill throughout the year. They’re — they live in a place that’s comfortable, and with great light. And it’s a real — these homes are about dignity.”

On Barack Obama winning the Presidency:

“I’m — oh, man. I think, overnight, we redefined what America’s about. I couldn’t be any happier and more hopeful for the — for America, for the upcoming — in the upcoming years. And that team he just announced, I’m so impressed with.”

On the LEED certification of the Make It Right homes:

“The other thing I’d like to add is that the homes here are all LEED Platinum, which is the green certification. And that’s the highest standard you can get. And probably, a year from now, this will be the greenest neighborhood in the United States. I think so. So, coming from a place that suffered such injustice, that’s been marginalized and almost forgotten in the sense of really helping people get back, has now become a place that is in the — that can be in the forefront of American communities. So, we’re excited on so many fronts.”

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
