Clooney's Charity Cash
Brad and George have become firm friends since working on Ocean's Eleven together

GEORGE CLOONEY is planning to invest more money in pal BRAD PITT's housing project in New Orleans, Louisiana after sponsoring the build of two homes earlier this year.

The Fight Club star launched the Make It Right Foundation to raise funds for housing in the city after the devastation caused by 2005's Hurricane Katrina.

And Brad’s Ocean's Eleven co-star Clooney is keen to donate more to the charitable project - adding to the US$300,000 he's already handed over to help those less fortunate.

He says, "I've bought a couple of those houses already that he's building.

You can build a house for US$150,000, which is amazing. So I bought two of them and plan on buying more as they're doing an amazing thing there."

And Gorgeous George has also confessed to his huge admiration for Brad and ANGELINA JOLIE's charitable efforts.

He says: "There is a tendency to make fun of people who get involved in these sorts of things. Brad went there, builds houses, he can do a lot of other things with his time.

”He and Angie really put their money where their mouth is. I'm always very impressed by them." For daily celebrity news updates sign up to our newsletter
