Brad Pitt 'pushing' kids toward architecture

Ellen DeGeneres and Brad Pitt stroll through the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans and discuss the progress of his "Make It Right" project on Tuesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Brad recalls that he first "fell in love" with New Orleans in the "early '90s and it was a bit of a blur because New Orleans will do that to you. ... The people. The music. It's in the air."

When Ellen says it's got to make him feel good that he's accomplishing so much, he says, "I'm getting far too much credit for this. This took a lot of very smart people coming in and attacking the situation. It took the families determined to come back and their resilience and they're defining what this thing was going to be. I get far too much credit for bringing some really smart people together."

But he says he wouldn't mind it if his kids wound up being architects as a result.

"I think I got one" in the family, he says. "Yeah, I'm pushing them that way." He adds, "When you see them drawing crayon houses. 'That's a beautiful house, honey.' Just keep pushing them."
