I was excited to hear that two of DiC‘s favorite men crossed paths over the weekend, and it was all for charity! The Make It Right foundation held a gala on Saturday night in New Orleans to help benefit victims of Hurricane Katina, which devastated Louisiana in 2005, disabled veterans in Newark, New Jersey, under-served families in Missouri and American Indians in Montana. Bruno Mars was one of the performers for the event and was joined onstage by chairman Brad Pitt for a little jam session.
Comedian Chris Rock served as host, Sandra Bullock helped to raffle off a BMW and of course Brad’s lady Angelina Jolie was in attendance. No word on if Pitt’s beer buddy Matthew McConaughey was there. The two were seen chatting on their balconies after they realized that they were neighbors. In case you were wondering, the beer Brad tossed over to Matthew is a local brew called NOLA Hopitoulas.
So there were rumors that Pitt would join the second season of the hit HBO show ‘True Detective,’ which of course stars McConaughey and shoots in Louisiana. Some people looked at this PR to drum up more speculation, but I think they both just enjoy a cold one. FYI, Nerdist is reporting that Jessica Chastain has been offered a lead role for the next season. She co-starred with Pitt in 2011’s ‘The Tree of Life.’ So we’ll see how that pans out.

Look closely at the ankles! Awesome, Angie! I’ll help you with mine if you help me with mine. Call me. – Julia]
