7:02 am
and good morning, america. hope you are well this thursday morning. it is a busy one. >> it is. we have that reaction overnight to the sentencing of amber guyger, the former dallas police officer convicted of murdering her neighbor, botham jean, and this powerful, powerful moment. his brother, 18 years old, hugging her, asking the judge if he could hug her. >> very powerful, indeed. guyger, she was sentenced to ten years in prison. that sentence also sparking some tense protests overnight. marcus moore is there in dallas and he's going to start us off with the latest. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: well, michael, good morning. amber guyger is just beginning that ten-year prison sentence the punishment handed down in a dramatic court hearing. moments after the controversial sentencing -- >> sentence the defendant's punishment at ten years imprisonment. >> reporter: botham jean's
7:03 am
younger brother brandt stunned the courtroom with faith and grace. >> but i love you just like anyone else, and i'm not going to say i hope you rot and die just like my brother did, but i -- i personally want the best for you, and i wasn't going to ever say this in front of my family or anyone, but i don't even want you to go to jail. i want the best for you. because i know -- that's exactly what botham would want you to do. >> reporter: judge tammy kemp in tears as he turned to her with an unusual request. >> can i give her a hug, please? please.
7:04 am
>> reporter: moments later, the judge handing a bible to guyger speaking with her imploring her to change. outside the courtroom, outrage from those who felt the ten-year sentence was far too short. prosecutors had asked for 28, botham's age, his birthday would have been this week. [ crowd chanting ] >> reporter: guyger's defense team believes the sentence was appropriate. >> they got to see true remorse that she had and in the end i think that played a big part in the ten-year sentence rather than something much more lengthy that the prosecution wanted. >> reporter: jean's family says they hope their son's death will force the dallas police department to re-examine its training methods. >> i believe that something need to be done. revisit some of the procedures, some of the will handling the situation.
7:05 am
i sincerely believe that and i hope this, what occurred with my son, will bring that change. >> reporter: and botham jean's mother told me overnight she's proud of her son, what he did for his own healing but for forgiveness doesn't absolve amber guyger of her crimes, nor does it end their call for change. michael. >> you know, marcus, so much emotion at the courthouse yesterday on both sides. but what was it like at the courthouse after the sentencing? >> reporter: well, you know, michael, it was remarkable. tears of anger, people upset about the ten-year prison sentence. then you contrast what we saw inside the courtroom, tears of a different sort. tears as a man embraced the woman who killed his brother. >> incredible moment of forgiveness and grace, thank you so much, marcus moore. george.
7:06 am
>> so many powerful emotions. we're going to move on now to washington for the latest on the impeachment battle. the committee's interviewing a key witness today as president trump escalates his attacks on top democrats and questions about how president trump enlisted vice president mike pence and other top officials in his attempts to pressure ukraine and pedal conspiracy theories about his opponents. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega starts us off. another escalation, house democrats now set to subpoena the white house. >> reporter: exactly, george. good morning to you. democrats say they're going to do what it takes to move this impeachment inquiry forward and as you said, vice president mike pence is now being pulled into this growing controversy. this morning, "the washington post" reporting president trump repeatedly enlisted vice president mike pence to join in his pressure campaign on ukraine. the president reportedly instructing pence to skip the inauguration of ukraine's new leader, volodymyr zelensky, the paper also says president trump used pence to inform zelensky that u.s. military aid was being withheld.
7:07 am
>> i think you should ask for vp pence's conversation because he had a couple of conversations. >> reporter: but according to "the post," officials close to pence say he was unaware the president had also pressured zelensky for damaging information on political rival joe biden, even though the paper says one of his top advisers was listening in on that fateful july phone call now at the center of the impeachment inquiry. a spokeswoman for the vice president telling abc news, pence directly and effectively delivered the president's anti-corruption and european burden-sharing messages overseas and upon his return the financial aid to ukraine was released. and now the house democrats are turning up the heat giving the trump administration until tomorrow to hand over a trove of documents related to the controversy enveloping this white house threatening to issue subpoenas. >> will you cooperate with those subpoenas? >> well, i always cooperate. this is a hoax.
7:08 am
>> reporter: the president repeatedly lashing out on the whistle-blower -- >> to impeach a president over a fraud that was committed by other people that want to win an election in 2020, which they won't, is incredible. >> reporter: and he used a profanity we can't repeat about democrats impeachment inquiry but asked a key question, what specifically he wanted ukraine to do about joe biden, the president would not say. >> listen, are you ready? we have the president of finland. ask him a question. >> i have one for him but i just wanted to follow up on -- >> did you hear me? >> yes. >> ask him a question. >> i will. >> i've given you a long answer. i answered everything. it's a whole hoax. >> reporter: and overnight, former vice president joe biden defended his role in ukraine and said he was simply carrying out official u.s. policy and he also addressed president trump directly saying i'm not going anywhere. you are not going to destroy me. robin. >> all right, cecilia, thank you very much. we saw the president also taking on the speaker.
7:09 am
you had a chance to sit down with her yesterday. that's right, robin. she is leading the battle for the house democrats, she's all in and we sat down as the president was unleashing that series of attacks on her from the white house. madam speaker, thank you for doing this. >> my pleasure. thank you. >> it may not surprise you the president was watching your press conference and heard you talk about wanting to do prescription drugs and now he's calling you the do nothing democrats. says you can't do it. >> why can't we do it? it's up to him. that was our pledge during the campaign for the people. we would lower the cost of prescription drugs. i think that the president wants to do that. so i hope that he would cooperate. he doesn't -- does want the u.s./mexico/canada free trade agreement, so do we. we're on a path to yes. i think he knows the argument that can be made against him and he's scared, and he's trying to divert attention from that, to where it's standing. >> you say he's scared. he had another tweet right after the one i just talked to you
7:10 am
about where he used a word i'm not going to repeat right here. did you hear the fear in his voice when you spoke with him on the phone? >> there was surprise in his voice when he didn't understand that i thought what he did was wrong, that he was undermining our national security, that he was undermining our constitution by his actions, and he was undermining the integrity of our elections. he just didn't see it but, again, he confirmed that that is what the conversation was as had been reported in the public domain and that when i actually saw it in writing i'd be so pleased. >> but one of the things you have heard from the president's defenders, there is no explicit quid pro quo in the call. is that necessary for impeachment? >> no, it's not necessary but there is a quid pro quo if you're only a couple of days apart and granting or withholding and then asking for a favor to create dirt on your political opponent. the president did engage in using the leverage of our national security, legislation that was passed by the house and
7:11 am
the senate in the interest of our national security to give military assistance to ukraine. >> in both the nixon and the clinton cases the house passed a formal resolution to set up the inquiry. why not take that step? >> we could. we don't have to, but we could. you know who is most afraid of that command? the republicans because they'll have to decide. >> wouldn't that make the process even more airtight? >> no, it's not necessary. we feel that we're on very firm ground as we go forward and we may go to that place just because it's a republican talking point but it's not necessary. >> i know you support chairman schiff, but was it right for him to have that dramatic interpretation of the president's phone call at the hearing last week? >> i want the american people to know what that phone call was about. i want them to hear it, so yeah. it's fair. it's sad, but it's using the president's own words. >> those weren't the president's words. that was an interpretation. they're saying he made this up. >> he did not make it up.
7:12 am
look, i want to tell you something, when i took the oath of office to support and defend the constitution as my colleagues have done as well, i did not say i will do this as long as the republicans can understand the constitution. so the fact that their loyalty is to trump and not the constitution is not going to slow down or impair our ability to keep the republic. >> has this process passed the point of no return? is an impeachment vote inevitable in the house? >> i don't think so. we just go forward and follow the facts. i don't think that. there are some people saying, why are you calling for an inquiry? i think you should call to impeach. i don't think that would be fair, and it isn't worthy of the constitution. we should collect the facts. >> and one of the things you can see how determined she is to go period and the democrats are going at a quick pace right now, so i want to bring in our senior
7:13 am
national correspondent terry moran on capitol hill. and, terry, the first key witness will be before one of those committees today, the house intelligence committee. >> reporter: that's right. it's a pitched partisan battle behind closed doors, as that crucial witness, kurt volker, takes the stand and answers questions before three house committees. volker is so important because he was the trump administration's special envoy to ukraine. he's the man right in the middle of all of this. he resigned last week after the whistle-blower said he was helping navigate for the ukrainians these demands that the bidens be investigated. >> okay, terry. a knife attack in police in paris, breaking news. >> george, this is breaking right now. details are still coming into us. we understand that at 1:00 p.m. local time, an attacker armed with a knife broke into the main police headquarters in paris just across the street from notre dame. killing at least four police officers before the attacker was shot and killed. we understand the attacker was reportedly an employee. the subway station near the
7:14 am
headquarters has now been shut down. the country's interior minister are rushing to the scene. the motive at this point is unclear. we don't know if it's terror related. paris has had a number of terror attacks in recekrencent years. michael? a training exercise going wrong at a military base in mississippi. at least 22 paratroopers injured after jumping from a c-130 plane getting blown off course landing in trees. this led to an intense search and rescue effort. an army spokesman says seven people were taken to the hospital, and thankfully no one suffered life-threatening injuries. >> thankfully. >> thankfully, indeed. now to the investigation under way into that deadly plane crash in connecticut. at least seven people killed and several others injured when a world war ii era vintage plane crashed shortly after takeoff. whit johnson is at bradley international airport with the latest. good morning, whit. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the ntsb has a go team on the
7:15 am
ground right now. they expect to be here for seven days to ten days looking into this deadly crash. the b-17 with 13 people on board was only in the air for about five minutes before something went horribly wrong. a fiery crash landing as a plane dropped from the sky, slamming into this de-icing facility at bradley international airport, just minutes after takeoff, the world war ii b-17 bomber radioed the tower for help. >> what's the reason for coming back? >> number 4 engine we'd like to return. >> big puff of smoke. >> reporter: the crash killing seven including robert riddell who was going to be celebrating his wedding anniversary this month. >> respond no matter where you are proceed to the crash via the quickest way possible. >> reporter: six injured taken to local hospitals. built in 1944, the bomber was traveling the country, providing tours and flights to the public.
7:16 am
>> ten more passengers who paid to take the ride and there were three aircraft crew and there was another person on the ground in the warehouse. >> reporter: one passenger, an air national guard command chief, was seated in the back of the aircraft. now being hailed as a hero. >> our understanding is, he popped the hatch and was able to extract some individuals when the tragedy hit. his training kicked in. >> reporter: one of those lives saved mitch melton who served in the army and air force. >> he has a couple of broken ribs. he had a bleed in his liver but he went into surgery for it. i was just happy to be able to say that we were going to be able to have him in our life still. >> reporter: we've also learned that two local firefighters were on board and injured in the crash. the company that owns the b-17 releasing a statement saying, our thoughts and prayers are with those who are on that flight, and we'll be forever grateful to the heroic efforts of the first responders. guys. >> thinking of all those family, thank you. a lot more ahead including
7:17 am
the latest on senator bernie sanders' condition after that health scare. hospitalized for a heart procedure. how it could affect his campaign for president. also ahead, the teen caught on camera impersonating a police officer and the moment he's confronted by an actual policeman, but first going to go back to ginger. hey, ginger. hey, michael. nearly 100 cities yesterday reached their all-time record october high temperature. they broke those numbers. i think it will happen again today. look at the feels like, mobile, 102, richmond, 100. the next best question is, why, why us, why is it still happening? we have this huge high pressure heat dome that has been in and pop out one state that has felt the brunt of this. that would be georgia. i know folks from atlanta to macon down to savannah are saying, when does it end? by the weekend but before that happens we've got our streamlines on here from the midlevels of the atmosphere. what that means to you, it's almost like a waterfall of heat.
7:18 am
yes, the midlevels you get sinking air in a high pressure system that comes down, the air compresses and have less room, the molecules get closer together, and air heats up. so that's why you've been having this heat. macon nine days in a row of record highs. if atlanta tomorrow gets to 90 plus which they should, that will be the 91st day this year that they've had 90 plus degree temperatures. that's never happened in recorded history. it's not forever. this thing will sink south, and all these cooler temperatures will be coming your way. look at that. by the weekend we'll be waking up in the 40s here. let's get to your select cities -- summerlike cities, excuse me, brought to you by carmax.
7:19 am
so this morning just to give you an example of what's coming, it's almost 40 degrees colder in new york city than it was yesterday afternoon. >> it's quite a high-wire act you do every day. >> thank you. it's a lot of fun. >> we'll be right back. this is the age of expression. everyone has something to say.

7:32 am
sanders sill recovering in las vegas amid questions about the future of his campaign. on tuesday night, the 78-year-old candidate going from this fund-raising event straight to the hospital complaining of chest pains. at the event sanders who usually likes to stand asking for a chair. >> can you do me a favor? get me a chair. it's been a long day. >> reporter: the sanders campaign won't say if he suffered a heart attack writing in a statement, following medical evaluation and testing, he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted. the vermont senator is known as a relentless campaigner. holding three to five events a day. >> i have been very healthy in my life and, you know, i've had some issues but basically i've been healthy. >> reporter: sanders opening up to dr. oz about his health and life on the campaign trail. >> i will tell you that being on the campaign trail is very difficult. you don't get enough sleep, so a
7:33 am
campaign trail is really not conducive to good health habits but what i try to do as much as i can is walk. i'm a big walker. >> reporter: the medical setback comes after sanders hit a monster fund-raising number, hauling in $25 million, the largest quarter for any democrat this year. and sanders even finding a way to campaign from the hospital, tweeting in part, thanks for all the well wishes. i'm feeling good. none of us know when a medical emergency might affect us, and no one should fear going bankrupt if it occurs. medicare for all. at 78, senator sanders is the oldest person right now to be running for president but the top contenders are all in their 70s. joe biden, 76, president trump, 73 and senator elizabeth warren is 70. now, as far as the calendar goes, the next democratic debate is october 15th and, robin, it's still unclear if sanders will participate. >> we'll have to wait and see. tom, all right. dr. jennifer ashton will join
7:34 am
us now. >> when you talk about a coronary stent, when you look at this animation, this is a device that's placed in a narrowed artery supplying the heart muscle. you see it right there. we actually use a catheter like this through a puncture in the groin to insert that stent and this is what the actual stent looks like. when you talk about stent placement, there are two types, there's an elective setting and there's an emergency setting. one of the criteria are indications to place an emergency stent is the setting of an acute heart attack. when you talk about cost, which we hear a lot about today, this could be about $40,000 of which 700 goes to the cardiologist, the rest is for hospital fees. so on and so forth. >> but what about the recovery? >> so, it's going to vary obviously depending on what happened to the patient. what the patient's pre-existing medical condition was but in general, we're talking about one to three days in the hospital and the patient's then monitored for complications and started on
7:35 am
blood thinners and other medications. >> we hear so much about prevention but what kind of additional treatment is needed after the sent the is put in? >> a great opportunity to talk about heart disease but slightly differently than we normally do. we hear that 80% of heart disease preventable with lifestyle modifications. once someone gets a stent placement they get shifted into a different category of treatment and the goal is to prevent a secondary event. so, again, lifestyle very important. medication, statins are a big part of that and then cardiac rehab which normally is a couple of months. >> what difference does age make? >> it makes a big difference. this is the number one killer of men and women, so again, when you talk about someone as they get older, it is almost presumed or assumed they will have a certain degree of coronary heart disease. again, the more active and fit they are before absolutely will help their recovery. >> all right. thanks, jen, very much, and we'll wait and see if it will affect his campaign.
7:36 am
we're going to move on now to the story of a teenager impersonating a cop pulling someone over in what looked like a routine traffic stop but he's the one that ended up arrested. gio benitez is here. >> reporter: pay close attention to this story. we've heard about police impersonators before but this time we get to see it. it was all captured on a real officer's body cam and there are lessons here for all of us. take a look. how does an officer go from conducting a traffic stop to crying in the back of a police car? because police say the man you're looking at is no officer at all. it all started when a real albuquerque police officer approaches what he thinks is a routine traffic stop. >> can i talk to you for a minute? >> me? >> reporter: but when the officer gets a closer look he sees a very young man in plainclothes with flashing lights on a civilian car. >> he looks really young. the only thing he was wearing was a badge on his waistband which still, you know, you know, it seemed a little odd.
7:37 am
>> have an i.d. with you? >> that's all i got. i mean like i said, i'm underequipped. i was just heading over there. >> reporter: he is just 18 years old, and had allegedly pulled over a car for speeding, but within minutes, he blows his cover. >> all right, i'm just going to be straight up honest with you. i'm not a cop. >> reporter: a lot of the equipment that he had on his vehicle, you could buy it online or in certain stores. we don't know what his intentions were. >> reporter: police slap the cuffs on him and take him in. impersonating a police officer is usually a misdemeanor but, because the teen supposedly attempted to make a traffic stop, he may earn a more serious charges. >> since he stopped somebody, that is technically false imprisonment where you're holding somebody against their will. because they feel like they're not free to leave, and that is a felony. >> reporter: we have seen bizarre cases like these before. in 2012, another 18-year-old was busted in miami beach after stopping someone to tell them to put on a seat belt. well, it turns out it was an undercover cop. the teen had what looked like a
7:38 am
police cruiser, a night stick, a taser and even a loaded pistol. some of the gear taken from the police department's youth program. the young man was convicted and is still on probation. now this morning, he faces similar charges. so, what should you do if you're stopped by someone you think is not a legit officer? you have the right to ask that officer to wait until you confirm they're legitimate with dispatch and it may feel intimidating. you can also ask to have their superior dispatched or to have that stop happen at a nearby police station. it is okay to ask officers questions about these i.d.s. >> okay, gio, thanks very much. i'm just thinking about, like, doing that. that so you could -- >> yeah. >> it's -- >> i know, it's intimidating but they say that you can do it. >> okay. we'll take your word for it. gio, thank you. coming up, the incredible opportunity for the homeless woman whose voice is inspiring so many. come on back.

good morning, america. it's 8:00 a.m. emotional moment in court. former police officer amber guyger embraced by the brother of the man she murdered. his message, the judge in tears guyger's ten-year prison sentence. abc news exclusive. my one-on-one with house speaker nancy pelosi. if this ends up being a party line impeachment, is that something good for the country? how the inquiry could affect the election. is a vote inevitable? where we are as a country. also this morning, the vaping outbreak grows. we're going to see-called ground zero of the epidemic. the health officials who first figured out the link to vaping after fourteens had a series of symptoms no one could connect.

8:02 am
stunned the courtroom in dallas. marcus moore is there and has more of that story with us. good morning again, marcus. >> reporter: robin, good morning. this is the front page of today's "dallas morning news". the headline reading anger and forgiveness. what happened in that courtroom came as a complete surprise and moved so many people to tears. botham jean's 18-year-old brother on the stand telling amber guyger that he forgives her and that botham wants the absolute best for her, and then he begged the judge to allow him to hug amber guyger, and that's what happened. we watched it in the middle of the courtroom, the two embraced for several moments. this was an unexpected show of grace that was in contrast to the anger we saw outside the courtroom over the sentence. people chanting, no justice, no peace, feeling like the punishment was not harsh enough, and we talked to the parents, botham jean's parents overnight, and they are proud of what
8:03 am
botham's brother on the stand, but that forgiveness does not absolve guyger after her crimes. >> marcus, such a remarkable family and it really speaks to the young man that botham was. can you remind people who he was? >> reporter: well, yeah, robin, this is a guy who was very active in his church and everyone we've spoken with who knew botham said that he was the kind et person that they knew, and he really wanted to do good in the world, and what we saw in the courtroom yesterday was him, botham jean, his kindness and his generosity. >> thank you so much. george, want to get more of your exclusive interview with nancy pelosi. i sat down with her in her office yesterday. this impeachment inquiry has moved at warp speed. she began last week, and she had been reluctant for some time. i asked her about her concern and next year's election. >> you were so clearly reluctant to take that step earlier all through the mueller inquiry with the two conditions, you'd want
8:04 am
to have republicans on board and the public on board. if this is -- ends up being a party line impeachment, is that something that is good for the country? >> let me just say this. i never said it would be required that we had -- i just hoped that they would follow the facts and see the truth. we don't have a choice. we'll either support and defend the constitution of the united states or we won't, and that's where we are. i think my holding back on it only argues further for how drastic this change was with this additional set of facts. >> you've said you -- you feel you had no choice but going forward on the impeachment inquiry and i know no one has a crystal ball but, you know, some democrats had been concerned if you go forward with impeachment, the president gets acquitted in the senate, that will strengthen him in the 2020 election. if impeachment helped president trump win in 2020 would it be worth it?
8:05 am
>> let me just say this, just because the senate may not have the courage to recognize the president's violation of the constitution doesn't mean that they're off scot-free. we have to have a very compelling case as we go forward for the american people and for the senate. so, again, outcomes in election have nothing -- i solemnly swear to uphold the constitution as long as it doesn't make a difference in the election. that's not the oath we take. we're there to keep the republic or we're there to play politics with impeachment and that's not what we're doing. facts are there. and we are proceeding to get further evidence as we go forward and it doesn't hinge on whether mitch mcconnell has the guts to really do what the constitution requires or what the impact is on the election but i will say this. having said all of, that
8:06 am
separate from that, the re-election of donald trump would do irreparable damage to the united states. we have some serious repair and healing to do in our country for what he has done so far. i don't -- i'm not sure that two terms -- it might be irreparable. >> it's going to lead to a real showdown. >> that last statement from her is very strong. >> quite strong. we go inside the vaping crisis with the doctors who ask the key questions that uncovered an epidemic. and could buying so-called ugly foods still taste good and save you money? our experiment coming up in the show. lara is upstairs. hey, lara. >> i'm with miss tory johnson in the house. you know what that means.

welcome, welcome. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having us. >> it's thursday. it's a throwback thursday. so we wanted to go back to your first acting jobs and, jon, i'm going to quote you about your first acting job. you play winnie the pooh in first grade. >> i sure did. by the way, i killed it. >> you said, quote, hope they got a photo of you from that show never gets out. we actually found -- no, i'm joking -- sdmrifs going to say. i know exactly where that photo exists. and it's in my closet. like it's never coming out. >> paint a picture of -- >> it's very sweet. i tried to find one because i thought i had one on my phone but i don't. i was in first grade and i was picked to play winnie the pooh because i was the kid in first grade that just liked talking out loud to everybody so my teacher was like, you'll do and yet my mom sewed the costume for me. i had a belt and a pillow to
8:32 am
make a tummy because winnie the pooh loves honey and had a little hood with ears on it and it was 75 kinds of adorable. >> i was going to say, describing that makes me go ah. >> exactly. it's pretty -- it was pretty cute. it was. >> well, next time you're here bring the picture. natalie, you were 12 years old when you made your professional -- >> she got paid, by the way. i did this for free. >> and the movie was "leon the professional" and now you're getting ready to play lady thor. so you have a chance to see -- excited about that. have you seen your costume yet. >> i have not. i have not but i'm very excited. >> you have not seen it yet. >> no. we don't start for almost a year so it's a long time away. >> have some time to go. okay. well, you know, we're going to talk about "lucy in the sky." based on a true story about astronaut lucy nowak and her

co-worker had an affair and we're going to take a look at a clip right now. >> in your life -- >> i've done plenty of things wrong. >> yeah. i bet you never even came in second in anything. >> mr. know it all. i've done lots of stuff. i'm here to tell you. >> really? hit me. [ applause ] >> so what kind of research went into this role for you two? >> i was really lucky to get to go to nasa and meet some astronauts during my tour there and it's so wild. they have this huge pool where they train so that they can feel weightlessness and have the entire international space station built underwater so they can practice their missions.
8:34 am
so amazing. >> i spoke to a couple -- one guy in particular who had spent time like six months on the space station and it really does kind of mess with you. like when you see the sun rise every 90 minutes, you get very different sense of what days are. so when -- he was there for six months and he just said like you just don't -- your whole perspective kind of switches. that's what we talk about in the film, how that really messes with your head and when you come back to earth, you don't really have anybody to talk to about it because no one else know what is it is. >> yeah. >> and going to space is a kind of a unique experience. >> very few people can relate to you in that and you guys have incredible chemistry on screen as we just saw in that clip. >> thank you. >> you kind of know each other. you're actually neighbors so do you like run into each other in the neighborhood? >> we do. >> totally. >> all the time. >> it is weird. it's weird when you're like -- when you're going to like go get

[ laughter ]
8:36 am
i'm sorry. i'm sorry. i was told to be professional. i'm sorry. but, natalie, you did say being an astronaut was a crime of yours growing up. >> i think so many -- i'm sure everyone at one point is like, wow, that would be the most miraculous thing to experience. >> jon, what about you? what was your dream? >> i mean to play center field for the st. louis cardinals that didn't work out. turns out i can't hit or throw. missed those two things but, no, yeah, i wanted to be a professional athlete. my best friend's dad growing up played for the cardinals actually and that was what i really thought i would do until i realized about 15, 16, it was like this is not happening. i'm not that good. >> from experience your body thanks you, okay. your body thanks you of the we're thankful because you're an actor and we love you in everything you do as well as you, natalie. thank for coming. always fun hanging out with you two and next time you see each
