Brad Pitt takes real-life role as resort designer

Brad Pitt isn’t the first celebrity to lend his name to help sell a real estate project. But it’s not common for movie stars to design five-star luxury hotels.

Pitt, who has long had a passion for architecture, will help design an 800-room green hotel and resort in Dubai. He won’t have to give up his day job because he’ll be part of a team of professional consultants from Los Angeles-based architecture firm GRAFT.

Here’s a video of Pitt on Charley Rose talking about his love of architecture.
