our breaking news coverage begins right now. we do say good morning, america. following the fast-breaking developments this morning. you are looking at the scene of that major raid this morning. sustained explosions, gunfire heard in that neighborhood just outside of paris actually less than one mile away from the soccer stadium that was atta attacked. >> authorities thought they cornered the mastermind, that man right there, abdelhamid abaaoud. here's what we know right now about the raid. two people are dead including that woman who detonated a suicide bomb. seven people arrested. five officers injured and a police dog was killed and you also see that photo of one of those suspects dragged away. his clothes partially torn off. what we don't know right now was this another cell actually getting ready to strike white away. what happened to both abaaoud, the mastermind and that eighth
attacker that fled to bulge. >> "world news" anchor david muir on the scene since the raid began. david. >> reporter: we witnessed an incredible scene here. you know, when we arrived there was a line of ambulances prepared for anything and it was a terrifying start for the families who lived here. s.w.a.t. teams moving in under the cover of darkness about 4:20 this morning. you can see still a heavy police presence behind me. that raid ending just a short time ago but the searches does continue and learned this morning what drew them to this neighborhood. they have been studying cell phone records since friday night since those deadly attacks here in paris and those cell phone records they believe led them to the mastermind in one of the apartments here. but when they stormed into those two apartments a female suicide bomber detonating her belt, another suspected attacker killed with a grenade all of this as they were warning everyone who lives around this square and in this neighborhood to stay indoors and lock the
windows. 4:20 this morning paris time families here jolted from their beds. a hail of bullet, gunfire, explosions in the street. laser lights pointing into windows. police shouting to witnesses to get away from their windows to hide in their apartments. all of this as french police stormed this housing complex in sain, a suburb north of paris about one mile from france's national soccer staid couple where those terror attacks began to unfold friday night. sources confirming to abc news this operation all part of the hunt for the so-called mastermind of the coordinated and deadly attacks here in paris, abdelhamid abaaoud, the belgian militant and major isis recruiter. a prosecutor suggesting that cell phones found led them to this neighborhood. giving them reason to believe that abaaoud could be in one of the apartments here. fresh sources telling abc news a woman killed herself during the raid, detonating a suicide belt. all of the attackers who killed themselves on friday night in paris had identical belts.
a second terrorist here this morning killed by shrapnel and grenades. the bursts of gunfire lasting three hours straight with sporadic explosions in the hours that followed and witnessed special forces and truckloads of soldiers securing the main square here as military helicopters fly overhead. authorities shutting down schools and warning families to stay inside. also here abc's matt gutman who was just feet from the chaos. >> multiple blasts right now. not sure what those sounds of explosions are. police have been mounting -- police have been mounting that as these explosions sound out. we're hearing cries of people down the street. >> reporter: this morning, authorities now say the raid is over. but that the searching here in this neighborhood continues. families here still on edge. >> a lot of people inside the district can't even go out. they're afraid to take the subway. you know, they're afraid that something else is going to happen. >> reporter: authorities evacuating part of the neighborhood.
those who could not get out were told to their their windows locked. one witness saying it's like war has come to our neighborhood. abdelhamid abaaoud has not been found. the so-called mastermind but, again, two dead, multiple arrests here. five french police officers, members of this elite s.w.a.t. team that moved in were injured during this operation and we've learned this morning that one of the police canines was killed in the raid and across france already today on twitter and elsewhere on social media they're honoring the s.w.a.t. teams who moved in quickly and of course that canine lost. this whole country transfixed by this race to catch the attackers, the so-called eighth attacker a possible ninth attacker a fugitive on the run and this mastermind that they thought they were zeroing in on just behind the street where the searching does continue at this hour, robin and george. >> thanks very much. more on this from our chief investigative correspondent brian ross, former fbi special agent brad garrett, as well and, brian, we just heard about these cell phone records that tracked
them to this apartment. they fought abaaoud was there. not so sophisticated. >> not at all. sister-in-lawle cell phones. throwaway phones and threw them away at the scene of the attack and recovered by police and used them to determine who they were communicating with and where for those attacks and that's why they thought abaaoud was -- >> they also found other kinds of equipment in the neighborhood. >> they also found in a raid in another hotel location, syringes and rubber tubing, suggesting this would be used to make a n nonmetallic bomb. that's how they would detonate the bomb. great concern then about female suicide many boers and believe there's as many as 20 in this cell in paris and still looking for others and almost certain more attacks were planned at least. >> brian, like brad has been following this very, very closely what happened today and subsequent day, what are authorities doing now? as we heard david say the race is on to find these attackers. this current raid is over but where do they go from here, brad? >> inside this apartment if you
couple the information that brian is talking about from the cell phones, there will be more information inside. you know, there's going to be a computer, who have they been communicating with? there's probably going to be other weapons, other explosive equipment inside. it may give them some additional leads. so, what you're going to see is more i think raids throughout the day and into the night at various locations. this is like a tree growing. you have branches going off as they pick up more pieces of information from each raid, they're going to go to another house because the concern, obviously, is where does this end and the answer now is unknown. >> brad, the fact that haven't identified any of the arrested yet should that make us assume it's not abaaoud or they're just being extra careful? >> it's hard to say, george. i think what you've got is at least people in some form or fashion connected to each other. and, you know, that's obviously the concern is how many
offshoots of that are there. because i think this is probably a loose group from the standpoint are there people on the piereriphery that maybe wer trained, weren't part of the attack and are out there and police have to go further and further out on this tree this will they get their arms around the group. >> and, brian, we heard from the u.s. authorities that they didn't have any specific or credible information, not a lot of chatter but the details coming out sound an awful like that tip that came from the iraqi government. >> they certainly do as the day before the attacks on friday the iraqi government sent word to the u.s. and french intelligence they had picked up information there was going to be a paing attack in france with 19 attackers and 5 people involved in logistics. they didn't know where and precisely when but they said that was coming. >> brian and brad, we appreciate it. i know you'll be standing by as developments happen. but the other major development overnight, the panic in the air. those air france jumbo jets from
the u.s. to paris diverted because of bomb threats. abc's david kerley is at dulles international airport with that story. good morning, david. >> reporter: morning, robin. one just took off, the other from l.a. just in the air for a few minutes when the threats came in and air france was taking no chances. on the ground in two cities air france jets surrounded by emergency vehicles, passengers getting off after those two bomb threats. >> air france, are you still dumping fuel? >> reporter: both making emergency landings shortly after taking off for paris. >> air france 65, salt lake tower, you're clear to land. >> we had made a pretty sharp right-hand turn and we're only at like 10,000 feet so we're descending. >> reporter: too took off from los angeles and diverted to salt lake and the other from dulles and had to make its landing in halifax, nova scotia. >> people on the plane said some of the stewardesses on the plane were crying.
>> reporter: in all 600 taken off the aircraft swept by authorities and canine units. >> the whole world is on edge after paris and so you're going to get these pranksters who want a reaction out of an acombun dance of caution they'll land them and check them out. >> reporter: authorities in canada and u.s. working to determine the nature of the threats and tracing that phone call, if they can, which grounded the two full international flights. so, these were false threats, both planes were swept. the one in salt lake city was able to take off. the one in nova scotia has to take off later tonight because of crew rest issues. back to you, george. >> david, thanks so much. concern and anxiety and we'll move on to that soccer game between germany and the netherlands evacuated and canceled tuesday after police said they had concrete evidence of a bomb threat although no explosives were found. it's more evidence about how much all of europe is on edge right now. abc's terry moran has more. >> reporter: it's an ordinary day here but there is in this city and in city after city
across europe an undercurrent of dread. it's the nature of those paris attacks, ordinary cafes and restaurants concert, soccer match, stuff you'll find in any city here in brussels. there are still rays and arrests every day in this predominant muslim neighborhood. that's got everyone on edge and really in the back of everyone's mind even on a day like today is that question with where are they going to strike next? overnight in germany, police shut down a train station after getting what they called a concrete and serious threat at a nearby concert venue. at this 49,000-foot soccer stadium germany and nether lands was set to play and suddenly called off after concern there. football gave way to fear. 90 minutes before kickoff police vehicles rushed to hannover stadium, reports of a suspicious package. over loudspeakers thousands of fans were ordered to evacuate situate. please remain calm. we want you to go home. the match was canceled and the team rushed to a secure location.
german chancellor chase mclaughlin angela merkel was taken out. even the surrounding neighborhood was shut down. this morning, a german sports journalist at the stadium posted this image on twitter. police appearing to hold a man at gunpoint. but hours later officials confirmed no device was found. hannover was clear. no arrests made. the heightened intense response is under standable here. this same german team was on the field in paris friday. ♪ in london it was a very different tone at wembley stadium. france and england's match started off with a show of solidarity. 80,000 englishmen singing the french national anthem and prince william laying a wreath for the paris victims. what a great moment that was. the jitters here in europe are natural. i was covering the white house
back after 9/11 and remember being evacuated several time, a natural reaction, people will get back to normal and steady themselves but right now if the object of the terrorists was to strike terror they've succeeded. >> yeah, we saw that with the evacuation. you're right about that, terry. what a contrast in saying, as you said, what happened at wembley stadium, the prince coming out and the show of unity like that, terry. >> reporter: absolutely, it was a special moment, especially given the ancient rivalry between england and france like cousins that don't get along or perhaps farther distant than cousins, and so to see that was very special for both countries at the end of the day, england didn't put any sentimentality on the pitch. they beat france 2-0. >> and that cops even as david cameron, the british prime minister said they've stop several texts. with russia joining the assault and france stepping up their bombing many are hoping that will be a game changer in
the war against the terror group. abc's martha raddatz is in iraq where isis controls territory. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this u.s.-led air campaign has been going on for more than 15 months here in iraq and syria. but since the paris attacks there has been a new ferocity. revenge came swiftly. 34 cruise missiles launched from the air and sea streaking across the skies tuesday aimed at isis targets. payback for the bombing of that russian passenger jet last month, killing all on board. the long-range russian bombers dropping the kind of ordnance that flattens buildings with little thought of civilians who may get in the way. 14 targets hit including an isis command post and weapons warehouse. and the french now at war with isis launching retaliatory strikes for the third night
since the paris attacks as the aircraft carrier "charles de gaulle" is soon to steam toward the syrian coast, the u.s.-led air war has intensified too. 8,000 air strikes since last year. a new alliance that could be a game changer. the russians, french and u.s. finally coming together in a powerful coalition with one goal, crippling isis. >> we have to step up our efforts to hit them at the core where they're planning these thi things. >> reporter: but as we've seen isis is expanding its reach across the region. in a rare look, this pbs "frontline" documentary journeys inside isis territory showing how they're focused on training a new generation of jihadists, children as young as 3. those scenes were from afghanistan but there is no doubt things like that are happening here in iraq and syria, as well.
robin. >> all right, martha, thank you. these attacks stepping up. we move on to washington director of the fbi and homeland security secretary were on capitol hill last night briefing all members about the threat to our security. more interest our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas. pierre, even though we just heard from brian that some of the cell phones they discovered in france were relatively simple there is a big concern out here that those terrorists may have used encryption technology to go dark and escape detection. >> reporter: yes, george, it was an unusual classified briefing tuesday when all the members of the house and intelligence officials met with some key senators. snores came out of that meeting saying that the evidence is mounting that the killers in france did, in fact use encrypted cell phones that made them invisible to law enforcement. senate intelligence chair richard burr said it's a wake-up call to the nation and with the holiday approaching and airports being crowded and all those shoppers in malls law enforcement will be under tremendous pressure to hunt for any clues. while no specific credible
threat has been identified to the u.s. homeland, you can see why this issue of encryption or going dark has everyone so nervous. you can't stop what you can't see coming, george. >> yeah, talked to the new york police commissioner bill bratton on sunday and he was concerned about that and this new government report out that surprised a lot of people that says that those that are on the terror watch list are still free to buy guns. >> reporter: yeah, george, apparently it's not illegal for someone on the terror list here in the u.s. to buy guns. according to a government today di between 2004 and 2014 people on that list bought more than 2,000 guns. senator dianne feinstein and senator peter king presented a bill that would prevent some of those purchases. >> bipartisan effort. thanks very much. >> makes no sense to be on the list and be able to buy guns like that. that's the situation at home. french president francois hollande speaking about the raid live right now. once again saying france is at war and we're going to go back
to "world news tonight" anchor david muir outside of paris there all morning and police thought the mastermind of those attacks, they thought they had him surrounded but, unfortunately, that was not the case, david. >> reporter: now the big question, robin, this morning is where is he as they move forward in this investigation and want to know was he actually in those apartments that they stormed into because they came upon several people, we know that the woman who detonated her vest was inside and killed another suspected aing thatter with that grenade. made several arrests but they want to know was he somehow able to escape because they believe those cell phone records led them here to him. also, there are questions about the suicide bomber, the female, there are reports here that she's been linked to the mastermind and that they've been tracking her since friday night's attacks. so two major questions as they move forward and as you said, president hollande speaking as we're on the air right now telling the french people we are at war and he's defiant, the air strikes against isis and syria will continue and the raids here on the ground, robin, george.
>> he has been very strong in his comments. thank you, david. we have much more ahead live in paris all morning long and new details still coming in interest that raid. president obama traveling, as well. he has been briefed on the raid getting a full briefing from his national security officials on the road. as "good morning america" continues. today is the day. hellmann's and holiday leftovers become irresistibly creamy turkey casserole.

back here on "gma," you hear the gunfire and explosions rocking a neighborhood just outside of paris early this morning. police there conducting a major raid less than a mile from that soccer stadium that was attacked friday. >> police were following evidence they collected since friday. they thought they were closing in on the mastermind of those attacks. two people killed in the raid including a female suicide bomber. seven others arrested and they're still trying to i.d. those who were arrested. >> the french president speaking about the raid and matt gutman is on the scene for us all morning long. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. now, the president also said that the aim of this operation was to neutralize probably the most wanted man in all of europe. we've been here for about eight hours now. we got here soon after this
operation began. we saw the massive buildup of police forces, anti-terror units and even the army spilling out of trucks taking up positions, i can tell you how twitchy they were this morning when we saw them. we pulled in and they actually trained their weapons on us and throughout the morning we heard gunfire crackling. we heard explosions sounding at least ten of them. now, it is too early for parisians here to breathe a sigh of relief. we know one woman, a suicide bomber detonated her vest somewhere down that street and this massive operation, five people were wounded there, as well, but that main target, abdelhamid abaaoud has not been apprehended and he was not one of the dead, so too early for any relief here, robin. >> all right, they thought a couple days ago they had the eighth attacker cornered. today they thought they had the mastermind cornered but neither case. >> not right now. we don't have that confirmed yet. you know, there's been such a backlash against syrian refugees coming to the united states after the word that some of these attackers may have passed through syria.
31 governors now say they don't want them living in their states. many presidential candidates you calling for a ban and congress moving for a moratorium on new refugees and an angry president obama fired back overnight. jon karl has more from the white house. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, george. 30 of those 31 governors saying they don't want the syrian refugees this their states are republicans. the president is accusing them of political posturing. overnight in manila president obama expressed outrage at public calls to keep syrian refugees out of the united states. >> when candidates say we want to admit 3-year-old orphans, that's political posturing. we should have a religious test and that only christians, proven christians should be admitted. that's offensive and contrary to american values. >> reporter: while most republican presidential candidates are calling for an outright ban on syrian refugees, jeb bush says some should be
allowed in the u.s. >> the answer to this, though, is not to ban people from coming. the answer is to lead to resolve the problem in syria. >> reporter: senator ted cruz is now proposing a bill that would ban any syrian refugees who are muslim. we asked cruz to explain why. >> from coming -- >> reporter: you say no muslim but we'll allow the christians in, that's your position? >> from middle eastern countries where isis and al qaeda have control of significant parts of those countries. >> reporter: you're saying no muslim, only christians? is that your position. >> reporter: jon, can you say radical islamic terrorism. >> reporter: i can. i'm asking your position. to be clear no muslims, only christians. >> christians are different in the middle east number one because they are being persecuted and facing genocide that is qualitatively different. isis is crucifying -- >> reporter: shia muslims are getting persecuted. >> but they're not -- >> reporter: donald trump told barbara walters in an interview
for "20/20" he wants to ban syrian refugees of all religions. >> many so people are saying that only christian, not muslim refugees from syria should be allowed in. should we make that test? >> the problem is we don't know if they're christian or not and i would certainly say that would be superior, but we don't know if they're christian or not. we have no idea who the people, they have no papers, they have no paperwork. you can get forged documents very easily in syria. >> reporter: hillary clinton responded to all of this with a tweet accusing the republicans of hateful rhetoric and saying the idea of turning away refugees because of their religion is, quote, a new low. george. >> and, jon, not only the president speaking out but white house officials really pushing back with congress on this idea that donald trump just raised that we can't find out who these people are. >> reporter: absolutely. they point out there is an extensive vetting process that inclu includes the intelligence community, the department of the state and homeland security, in fact, george, it takes 18 to 24
months for a refugee to go through that process before they can step foot in the united states. >> but, jon, the politics of this are tough. i would imagine if a moratorium, this idea of a moratorium is put on the floor of congress it would likely pass. >> reporter: yeah and you're starting to see some democrats including shuck schumer very influential saying the idea of a pause is not a bad one. >> jon karl, thanks very much. >> many wouldn't mind hitting the pause button for the time being. much more on paris all morning long. we turn to deadly storms slamming the pacific northwest. wins topping 100 miles an hour in some parts and, ginger, you have more. >> yeah, at least three people killed from trees falling into homes from trees falling into vehicles, you can see some of the damage right behind me, winds gusted to 137 miles per hour in parts of the cascades. this was a disastrous storm that moved through very quickly, seattle itself gusts above 50. 71 miles per hour in spokane itself. more than 300,000 customers this morning without power and they

the states have incredibly differing laws and it depends on what they said happen in california for example you would have had to literally intentionally tried to infect someone to be convicted of a felony. for a misdemeanor, willfully exposing someone. charlie sheen would say it wasn't willful. i didn't think i was contagious. civil lawsuits are totally different story. there you're talking about not the government involved. not beyond a reasonable doubt but individuals who could sue him saying things like intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence on his part. expect to see some sort of lawsuit. >> meanwhile, he says he's being blackmailed quickly. could those people face any legal -- >> if that happened he should be reporting them to the authorities and the authorities would investigate because that would be a crime. >> o. dan abrams, thanks very much. and coming up, "gma" has been streenling live for 40 hours. you'll have all the biggest moments so far from our "40 for 40" event including one direction. ♪ secret rendezvous ♪ if you like to do the things

"world news tonight" anchor david muir is in sain with the latest for us. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. you're absolutely right. they came here believing abdelhamid abaaoud was here, the so-called mastermind behind the deadly attacks across paris. they came here based on cell phone records they've been studying since friday night believing that he was, in fact, here. they moved in at about 4:20 this morning and it was a terrifying several hours for this neighborhood here. families waking up to gunfire outside their windows. you can hear those explosions here and when they stormed into two apartments they found several people, one of them a female suicide bomber with a vest on. a belt, similar to all those other attackers who had those belts who then killed herself. another suspected attacker was killed with a grenade. there were multiple arrests, seven arrests in all. five french police officers injured. we have been told the raid is
now over, amy. though they continue searching buildings down the way here behind me but the big we is where is that so-called mastermind? they did not find him here. >> so what is next in the search for abaaoud? >> well, a french prosecutor said just a short time ago that the central question remains about whether or not he was, in fact, in one of those apartments when they stormed in and was able to escape? that's a question they still have to answer. another key question is about that female suicide bomber. there have been questions reportedly linking her to the mastermind, what was her relationship? it's believed they've been following her since friday night. so this is fast moving and we'll stay on it, amy. >> very fluid situation. david, thank you for the latest from sain. > st.-denis. speaking from manila earlier he addressed the controversy about accepting syrian refugees, insisting they do not pose a security risk. he criticized his opponents, in

antibiotics are less likely to have drug resistant bacteria th than those who get it routinely. 2 million americans get antibiotic-resistant infections every year. regular use of antibiotics in animals raised for food is lessening the effectiveness of antibiotics. >> that, in fact, is the public health crisis we have going on today. that antibiotics are less effective in treating illness. >> the organization found that ground beef from cows regularly given antibiotics was twice as likely to carry superbugs than beef from cows raised without them. they're often used to promote growth and prevent disease and the fda plans to phase them out to promote growth but healthy animals can still get them for disease prevention. >> healthy animals are fed low levels of antibiotics on a daily basis, that particular method we're extremely concerned about. >> reporter: in a statement the national chicken council says they avoid the use of human
antibiotics and along with the u.s. poultry situation support the use of antioxidants for medical reasons but not to promote growth and the beef association tells abc news they continue to develop new safety technologies in order to provide consumers with the safest highest quality beef possible and dr. richard besser joins us now. interesting report right there and raises the whole issue of antibiotic resistance in general. >> yeah, it's a big issue. we take them for granted and get a bacterial infection. we take an antibiotic and feel better. but for some of these infections the drugs aren't working so well and there aren't a lot of new drugs coming down the pipeline. what "consumer reports" is saying is that when you use antibiotics to help animals grow faster and bigger, it's leading to some of these drug resistant infections. >> and how is basically just the overuse of antibiotics across the board contributing to these superbugs developing? >> let me show you. take a look at this. animals' bodies and ours are covered in bacteria, okay. most of those bacteria are sensitive to antibiotics but there's a couple of them there,
those little red ones that are resistant. when you give the animal the antibiotic it kills off all those suss septemberable and leaves behind those resistant ones which multiply so then if you get an infection it's drug resistant. >> how do we protect ourselves. >> there are a number of things we can do. first be careful how you cook at home. make sure you cook it thoroughly, acried cross contamination. when you're buying your meat and poultry you can look at the labels but you have to be careful. take a look at this. some that are clear, usda organic that's antibiotic free. if it says raised without antibiotics, that's antibiotic free. natural means nothing. it can be on anything. and no hormones means no hormones but it doesn't necessarily mean no antibiotics. >> you would steer towards meat that isn't raised on antibiotics. >> i would. i think it's going to cost a little more because animals do grow faster with antibiotics but i don't think it's the way to go. >> okay, rich besser, thanks
very much. rich will take your questions on twitter all morning long e tweet him @drrichardbesser. >> george, thanks so much. and now to the model and fashion editor helping revolutionize the runway. she encourages everyone that they're beautiful, iskra lawrence. from model ashley graham to celebs like mariah carey, pink and melissa mccarthy and so many more a life listers inspiring all women to like the skin they're in. 25-year-old iskra lawrence known for her viral untouched aerie campaign and her gorgeous posts on social media is taking this message of female empowerment to runway riot. a new style and fashion site aimed at the 65% to 70% of american women who we are a size 14 or higher and while the

♪ welcome back to "gma." here is the cast and director of "the hunger games." wish you could have been here during the break. we had a little operation going on with josh. >> we got it under control. >> don't be afraid. >> we learned the tour is challenging and hard. that's a good thing to get out of the way. francis, in some ways it really has been. you had your paris premiere just a couple of days before the attacks and decided to scale back the l.a. premiere because of those attacks. it was important for you guys to do that, wasn't it. >> it was. we as a group feel very close to paris. we shot in paris for six weeks. we lived there, a huge majority of our crew is french. and so it hit us hard and i think we felt strange and odd to be out there selling the movie with smiles on our faces. but we also didn't want to disappoint fans and we didn't want to disappoint the charities like make-a-wish that come out
for these things so decided to focus on the fans and charities. >> you really have done a wonderful balancing act. julianne moore was here earlier. i know you don't want to disappoint them and here you all are wrapping it u. will you do a little separation anxiety, josh. >> i wouldn't say so and i'll tell you why because we don't separate. that's the trick. if you ever want to avoid separation anxiety just don't separate. >> yeah, perfect answer. >> yeah. >> we make our attempt at an unhealthy relationship. >> you're friend, liam. >> co-dependent. >> that's an understatement. >> not just colleagues. >> you can't destroy what we have. i hate the word colleagues. >> unhealthy workplace environment and translated that into. >> it's totally healthy. >> you seem amused by all this. >> of course. [ laughter ]
>> what is it like -- because you have -- you have, sir, you have done it all. you really have. and i know that you were joking and saying that after all the great characters including president snow, i look at you and i'm looking at president snow what do little girls want to take a picture with you say. >> no, seriously they -- they'll stop me in an airport corridor with their mother and they'll pull at my leg and i'll look down and they say, could i have my photograph -- they will -- the mother will stand them up on a chair and we'll be standing together like that and the little girl will go, could you look me -- could you look mean? i don't know how to look mean in yes, you do. >> it's amazing because we were here for the first one and you were little babies when you came here and you were out -- i think we even have a picture of your premiere from the first one a few years ago. no, that's not -- >> we haven't changed a bit.
wow. >> amazing. >> but could you all -- could you evening -- there you go. all right. ah. >> little babies. >> but could you, jennifer, have anticipated the reaction from everyone, jennifer, and the -- could you have anticipated back then this? >> no, i mean this whole thing has been just incredible. our fan support is unbelievable. >> in berlin, by the red carpet there were more than 6,000 young people standing there waiting in line and it was freezing cold. >> yeah, yeah. >> it happened -- wanted you to give the mean face. >> and, francis, halfway through but this is terrell tiff beginning of your feature film career. huge franchise. >> it is. i mean, you know, half of the film is about done have been these projects but it's been the most creatively fulfilling time of my life absolutely these stories are unbelievable. the characters are unbelievable. the group of people i got to
work with are incredible. >> because -- >> you were doing music videos. >> i did music videos for about 15 years for films. >> what's the difference between these actors and musicians. >> believe it or not with this behavior they're far more professional than musicians. >> i set you guys up for that. >> yeah. >> set up a whole industry. >> shhh. >> nothing. >> i've done enough. >> good job. >> i did. >> our camera -- >> the moment before this happens and -- >> you just saw it. >> incredible. >> you turned up -- >> i'm not -- >> because she is the one the most to break character -- she -- you seem to be a free spirit. >> ooh-hee. >> free spirit. >> she is the least professional. >> no, no. >> no, it's true. i'm nose likely to -- do i have lines? >> wait, what are we shooting?
>> i always forget that lines are a part of the job. >> josh, what is next? >> wow, great set. oh, my god, this is amazing. >> do you remember the words? >> they're like, rehearse, rehearse what? >> i remember when you were here the first time i said please don't change and you haven't. that's wonderful. it's wonderful. >> certainly have not grown up. >> all the due success that's come everyone's way that you maintain this friendship and just talent. i'm telling you, it is so good. >> well, thank you. >> are you as excited for people to see it as we are? >> yeah, i'm really excited. i think, you know, there's something really satisfying about seeing the story through to the end and see the conclusion. i think it's emotional. >> this is really the end. >> yeah. >> yes. >> it is definitely the end. >> yes. >> come on. >> no question. >> yes. >> uh-huh. >> it has to be. you know, and it's a wonderful anti-war picture and if young people go and look at it and they come politicized get up off their chairs and organize

♪ you're so beautiful the "gma" "40 for 40" express is heading here -- better go a little faster. never get to new york with that speed. you got to be with us tomorrow. >> good morning. it is 8:56 on this wednesday november 18. i'm erin o'hearn. let's heads to karen rogers she has an update on that issue on 95 earlier.
>> yeah we talk about that accident, i-95 northbound on the girard point bridge blocking the left lane. it has since cleared. the delay is thinning. i'd say we're still a little slow on i-95. you can see this traffic here from the airport to the girard point bridge but now that all lanes back opened should be looking better. although we don't have any major accidents on any highways at this point blocking lanes we have lots of little accidents in spots. one on kelly drive near midvale avenue will slow you down. another on stuart street right near 59th street in overbrook and by the zoo we have one in west philadelphia on girard avenue so a few accidents to watch for. now we had one in a bad spot here in bellmawr on 295 northbound just as you approach route 42. it has cleared but we're still heavy in this area. spots that would be slow anyway erin. with that accident it's extra heavy this morning. >> thanks karen. let's head outside to meteorologist, david murphy. he has his jacket on and the forecast. >> clouds are beginning to overtake the city. 50 degrees in philadelphia so the number improving a bit, 44 in allentown. 54 in millville. this afternoon will be a little bit milder than
yesterday with a high of 63 but we're going to see lots of clouds late in the day and this evening, a couple of you might even pick up a sprinkle or light shower. then tomorrow rain moves in. probably during the morning rush hour and continues through the evening rush hour. periods of rain off and on through the day some of it steady and we are going get about an inch of rain on average. 69 is the high. dry on friday but breezy and cooler back into the upper 50's mid-50's by saturday erin. >> real cool. thanks, david. coming up today at noon a local home goes up in flame while a woman is sleeping inside. we hear from the nephew who rescued her as investigators look for the cause of this early morning blaze. "live with kelly and michael" is next right here on 6abc. leo hemsworth will be their guest. i'm erin o'hearn. have a great wednesday. >> ♪
