the judge. i have it right here. she said "have as much mercy for the rapist as he did for me the night of the sexual assault which was none" and then the judge with that sentence. what do you make of this, areva? >>now, i think there's a lot of anguish in this country around the way rapists are being convicted and this case was so powerful, the statement given by this young womo powerful. the only opportunity for the judge to hear from her, to hear how this rape impacted her life and to weigh in on the sentence d then to get two years work release, i think many are disappointed by this sentence, robin. >> areva, let me ask you, though, a lot of outrage about this sentence, how unusual is this, though? is this happening more than we think? >> there's some data out there that suggests that only 3% of rapists will actually spend time in jail. that report has come under attack but i think it's pretty clear that rapists on college campuses fare better in terms of sentencing than those that are involved in rapes or convicted of rapes outside of the college campus so really something we need to look at in this country.
7:42 am
>> and college students have been talking about this on campuses all across the country, areva, and i'll ask you this, dan, why is that the case? why does that seem to be more lenient, dan? >> look, i think we're seeing a lot more coverage of this now which is actually a good thing, right, i think exposing the criminal justice system for what it is both the good and the bad can be very helpful. here you're talking about the possibility of 4 years to 12 years and he gets this lenient sentence. no question this is below the level, i think most expected. >> talking about exposing the criminal justice system. this next headline, surprise twist "making a murderer" case, a federal judge overturning the convicted of brendan dassey who was found guilty in 2007 along with his uncle steven avery of murdering teresa halbach and both sentenced to life in prison. the judge now saying dassey's confession was coerced. here's a look at some of the interrogation that led to brendan's confession.
7:43 am
look at this. >> your mom said you'd be honest with us. we already know what happened. >> dan, were you surprised? >> i was surprised not because of the reasoning, meaning i agree with the judge entirely. what makes this so surprising is you have a federal court here stepping in and saying, yes, i know this worked its way through the state court. yes, this is a state court crime. but this is such an unreasonable decision and raises such fundamental constitutional questions, that i'm going to throw it out. that's what makes it so unusual in this case and why it was a including those who think that brendan dassey is totally innocent. >> and what about steven avery? >> this does not help avery. all these people say, oh, so steven avery will be the next one. if you actually read the judge's opinion, the judge sort of presumes in this opinion that the evidence against steven avery is valid. i don't think this is going to have any impact on his case, certainly not a positive impact. his lawyer is going to file a separate motion in a separate case and i think he's still got an incredibly uphill battle. >> so >> in particular to avery. >> yes. >> you want to lighten things
7:44 am
up just a little bit here? >> let's do it. okay, now to that big adele news during a sold out concert on saturday. the "hello" singer shot down rumors that she would be performing at next year's super bowl halftime show. take a look at what she said. >> so, first of all, i'd like to tell you that i'm not doing the super bowl. well, come on, i mean, come on. that show is not about music. and i don't really -- can't dance or anything like that. they were very kind. they did ask me but i said no. >> i can't dance. >> yeah, very well. >> the nfl and pepsi says they had conversations with several artists but they have not extended a formal offer to anyone. joining us now is howard bragman, howard, the super bowl halftime show is a big deal. what do you make of what ale said? >> i think adele's got a very good sense of self because the super bowl halftime show, i happened to be there last year on the field with my client, it's spectacle, and adele is
7:45 am
intimacy, it's not dancing, it's not fireworks, it's probably the right decision for her. >> left shark dancing when she sings "hello," left shark when she's singing. >> howard -- we can try that but, you make a good poi howard. i was at the staples center last week. there's two stages there but all she does is sing, i say that, it's adele. it was sold out, eight shows. she makes a good point when she says the super bowl really is about more than that. she knows where she fits. >> it's hard to turn it down, there's 125 million people watching in the u.s. alone. it's the largest musical venue in the world. but she knows herself and that's why you got to respect her so much. >> much respect. okay, i love how you dropped a line. your client was there last year. how about you, areva, who would you want to see at the super bowl perform? >> kendrick lamar would be my choice. >> done and done. >> it's going to be all right. >> that's it. thank you all, thank you all very much. thanks to areva, dan and howard. coming up in two minutes,

it's been so incredible being a part of this journey. there were so many things that happened this meet that were just historic. you know you look at michael phelps. you look at simone manuel. you look at katie ledecky, like so much happened and to just be a part of it and be a part of this incredible legacy that we have, it's such an honor. >> okay, now a lot of people, now this has been, you said, a disappointing week for you. you actually said it was hiroshima one of the most disappointing weeks of your life. >> yeah. >> people have said it's been a heartbreaking experience but you came in here this morning, you almost kicked that door in with energy and just you didn't seem like somebody that was down. how are you dealing and processing with what did happen to you last week? >> you know, i'm definitely taking some time with it. by far it's been the most disappointing i've ever been in any athletic performance so for that to line up at the olympics is not a deal obviously, but that positivity just comes from knowing that i did the best that i possibly could and it just wasn't my week. it's heartbreaking that all of the hard work and sacrifices i made just didn't show up. but i know that they will eventually, and i think i'm going to be so much stronger after this experience. >> we don't have to look for
8:05 am
something, you're not injured. there was no issue or something. you just said sometimes it happens. >> i wish i could tell but that's sports. sometimes you do everything you possibly can and it's still not there but it's those times you have to keep your head high and keep pushing forward. >> how big of a deal has it been to have your family close by? you have a squad here. >> amazing, the franklin squad is in full force here and they're the best. ever since i was 5 years old and started swimming my parents have been so adamant about do your best and we'll be proud of you no matter what so to have that support and love even when i'm so disappointed in myself has been heartwarming. >> you know we're not disappointed in you. everybody is so proud of what you've done and did pick up a gold in the relay. >> i'm incredibly proud of this. >> but 2020, no question we'll see you back. >> i feel like i have so much more to learn, so much more to give back and would love to be back in 2020. >> this incident with the swimmers, ryan lochte and a couple of swimmers that have you
8:06 am
all had any issues or security issues. very shocking thing. >> no, i felt very, very safe this whole time. we were all so concerned when we heard that and i think everyone is just really grateful that everyone is okay and no one was hurt. >> all right, and you're wrapping up this olympics and you're about to head out because you got to go back to school actually. >> i know, yes, i'm heading back to cal berkeley and i'm so excited about it. there's so much i'm looking forward to getting back there, getting back with my team, getting back with athletes in action. like all thee different groups i missed being a part of so much this past year so i couldn't be more excited. >> it's an absolute pleasure. well we are proud of you. robin, i'm going to hand it back to you here. we're going to hang out a little bit longer. we're having a blast here. >> you do that. >> she's not down at all. >> no, you give her a big hug for us. appreciate how she's handling everything. >> i'll give you a big hug. >> there you go. >> thank you, t.j. let's go outside to ginger. >> oh, what a crowd we have out here, my new friends from texas and my buddy, b.j., he's from

[ speaking a foreign language ] >> wow. telling her son when it's okay to lie. great to have you with us. >> thank you. >> mom, director actress, writer of this new project of yours but i want to go back to when you originally read the book and said natalie, you could envision it the moment you were reading it. >> yes, i read the book for the first time almost ten years ago when it came out in translation and immediately i started seeing the film in front of my eyes and
8:09 am
i knew that that had to be my first film to direct because it was so so immediate in my mind. >> this particular story reminded you of the stories you had been told as a child. >> yes, it was so similar to so many of the stories i had heard growing up because my family is from -- my father's side is from israel and so i had heard so many stories about my grandparents as refugees from europe in the '30s, late '30s coming to israel which was then british mandate palestine and it's just that shock of what it is when you're an mcghie going to a place that is not anything like you expected it to be. >> decipher between what was reality and these stories picked up and expanded upon over time. i know you wanted to make this and you went out and you thought i'll find someone to help write it and over time people said why don't you just write it. >> yeah it was actually really
8:10 am
empowering because i kept thinking oh i'll find someone, a professional writer to write this and i kept meeting with people and they said you know how to do this you're explaining what you want. so eventually i adopted it myself. >> not only did she write this she starred in it you also directed it and i'm curious, when you're dregging yourself how much have you taken from other directors that you've worked with in the past to then help the arcs who are on the set and is it easier to direct yourself? >> so i thought it would be harder than it was because there's actually something easier when you watch yourself and you want to change something, you don't have to figure out the words to use to explain it. you just do it. you know what you want and you just do it whereas with other actors you obviously have to find the language that will help them and i definitely took from directors i worked with in many ways, you know anthony minghella who i worked with on
8:11 am
"cold mountain" would have actors opposite you change their lines and i would do that with the arcs sometimes where you're offscreen you can say something that shocks them or scares them there was a time when i wanted the little boy to be excited running out and i would tell him like, there's an ice cream truck outside and he'd just light up and go out. >> we just have a few seconds left but your little guy is 5. >> uh-huh. >> and you embraced motherhood in the same way you embraced all your work and wonder how it helped you on the set in making sure everyone was taken care of. >> it is actually quite parental role i think, being a director because your job is to make everyone comfortable, make sure everyone is okay and also get the best out of them. like how can you everyone courage them and support them to get the best out of them which is very much a parental role. >> natalie, great to have you back on "gma." thanks for coming in this morning and "a tale of love and darkness" in select theaters this friday and coming up this morning, chance the rapper is here. natalie and i were hearing him warm up in the break.
