This press conference should draw a crowd. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday is holding what is known in the media world as a “photo opportunity” with none other than megastar Brad Pitt.
Pelosi, a Democrat of California, is known to draw A-listers to her suite of offices in the Capitol and the U2 rock star Bono is a regular visitor.
Pitt is visiting Pelosi to discuss the “Make it Right” project to build affordable and environmentally friendly houses in New Orleans’s Lower 9th Ward, which was badly damaged in Hurricane Katrina.
Pitt is apparently coming without Angelina Jolie, who is not on the list to attend the event.
