multi-national corporation in trouble. it's product no longer selling like it once did. its reputation tainted by the whiff of corruption and scandal. it did after all do what big businesses in trouble do. it's c.e.o. announced he was retiring. its board of directors was called in to appoint new manage tomorrow try to restore the appeal of the product. to relaunch brand vatican. and pope frances is its face. in just over a year since the election of this outsider from argentina, who was given a papal miter and figurative broom to sweep out the cobwebs the catholic church is a place transformed. >> the change in the image of the papacy there is nothing short than remarkable in one year. >> change in the imagery of the
papacy says robert odero who teaches at rome's pontiff call university. but a church driven by internal conflict and laboring under the shame much the priestly child abuse scandal with pope frances again addressed earlier this month is still waiting to see what substantive changes this pope of the people might bring. the question comes up, what's cringed, really. >> nothing. unless you think style is more important than content. and a lot of people do. >> it is the now familiar change of style of this pope that made him such an international headline getter, the pope who rejected the lavish papal residence who lives in a simple three room apartment in the clerical guest house. the pope who carries his own bag and who travels not in a limo
but in a reasonably priced car. the pope who washes the feet even of non-catholics and who is more likely than not to give a kid a lift. but all of the change has raised expectations that other changes must surely be in the papal pipeline. this is the pope, after all, when asked about attitude about homosexuals did not echo the catholic line that they had intrinsic disorder, instead he asked, who am i to judge. ears ricked up. was the catholic church about to reconsider its position on gays, on divorce, on birth control. well, why and no. >> there's a difference between changing the teaching and changing the approach. we can change the approach. we can be welcoming the people whose lifestyles we cannot accept.
>> but if you're gay or if you're divorced and you feel yourself ostracized by the church, in fact position within the church welcoming this pope might want to make it hasn't really changed. still, frances has raised expectations of change in at least one area. >> the anticipation is, that the prescription against divorced catholics being full catholics, receiving communion. divorced and remarried, that they might be accepted back in to the church. that's the expectation. >> that's the expectation, yes. >> that this is going to happen? >> i don't know. >> that's remarkable in itself. >> it's remarkable because frances know thee logical revolutionary. he's a product of cardinals,
very conservative popes. benedict and john paul ii. radical reform of church doctrine is not what they had in mind when they chose frances. long time writer on church affairs, massimo franco thinks the popular view of frances may be based on wishful thinking. >> is that he's wearing the cloth that other people want him to wear, but i'm not sure that they are the clothes he wants to wear. >> he's still a very traditional man in terms of doctrine. >> i think he's a traditional man. >> but frances is a traditional man who doesn't come from the roman tradition. or even the european one. in fact much of his appeal is based on the fact that he's an outsider who has no stake in the mess of the center of the church. this is frances' problem, the
vatican. he was elected by the cardinals to fix this place, it's bureaucracy, financial corruption, sense of isolation from the real world where the church should be doing its work. and it's still frances' problem because there are parts of this place that don't want to be fixed. >> already there is grumbling that frances doesn't understand how the church's powerful administered structure, the roman really works. he doesn't value the cardinals who run its various departments or appreciate the work they do. >> these cardinals who are working in the room an area are seasoned church bureaucrats. there is pushback, yes. now, is that significant? i think not. i think you'd have to be naive to think you were going to come in and reform the roman curia and everyone was going to applaud. there is push back. >> there's also irony.
the church may have needed frances, but he needs the church. >> if he doesn't get the vatican on his side, reform it in his image he won't be able to single-handedly turn the catholic church in to the more welcoming, more merciful place he says he wants it to be. >> what i think frances knows very well is that he can win worldwide only if he wins in rome. if he doesn't win in rome he can in the win worldwide. >> practical and useful device up, up and away.

my goal is to write 49% of the book. then to let me audience create the 51%. they are my collaborate or more than they are my audience. >> you said that part of the reason that you write these books is that there is no such thing as a good childhood. what do you mean by that? >> a terrible time. born in to a world where none of the furniture matches you. you walk in to a room and the room is saying, you are nobody. we're having a good time, right, i hope you're having a good time. i'm average great time. image fin a giant hand came down, plucked you out of the room said, now we're doing something else. if you complained it was your fault for getting fussy for being angry about the hand dragging you out of the room. >> as for willems' own childhood he grew up in new orleans. the son of dutch immigrants and started cartooning at a young age. >> in the second grade the class
bully would not tease me or bully me if i lad a gag. i had a daily strip in the second grade. >> a comic strip. >> just come up and i'd show it to him, if he laughed i was off the hook. >> after college he tried stand up comedy. what kinds of things did you do? >> i did things that large groups of people thought weren't funny. with sketches about like the guy who announces all the subway trains, trying to order food. that kind of thing. >> just 24 he was asked to do one of his comedy bits as audition to become a writer on "sesame street." >> i think i did one about the characters from double mint commercials going on a double date. they liked the sketches. >> he got the job spent nine years there winning six emmys. he left to work on cartoon

>> and he was sick for a long time. he was out of work. we lost the family station wagon. and we came right to the edge of losing our home. my mother saved our home with a minimum wage job. but in the 1960s a minimum wage job was would support a family of three above the poverty line. >> not today. >> not today. not even close. i understood right then that people can work hard, they can play by the rules and they can still take a hard smack. >> warren dropped out of college to get married at 19. moved to texas and eventually graduated from the university of houston. by 1978, she was 29 and divorced with two kids. she also had a law degree from rutgers and a gift for teaching. which eventually landed her a job at harvard.

college at the university of arizona then realized, i'm never getting a job as an actor. what am i doing? >> what he did was switch to broadcast journalism. in 1991 he landed the job of host of a new cable tv show "talk soup." >> come on, i'm joking. >> round up of the most outrageous, trashy daytime talk show clips. >> i think i'll go out and sell my body. it wasn't that simple. >> much more complicated than that. >> even attracted attention of one network news magazine. >> a prostitute about already favorite off-duty. >> do you remember when "48 hours" came to do a story on "talk soup"? >> i do remember that. i don't believe -- none of us could believe that "48 hours" was coming to talk to "talk soup" we thought the week preceding it that we were being punked.
>> very sad news from the prostitution front these days. >> you never came off snide or nasty. >> i don't think i am snide or nasty. >> affable is more like it. >> i'll take affable. >> later he became the affable host of a very late night talk show called "later" then caught the eye of director sidney pollack who cast him in his first big film role in the remake of "sabrina." >> tell me who you are. >> hello sacks broken that. >> at 31 he got his job as an actor. then it got as good as it gets. an audition at jack nicholson's house. >> he asked me afterwards if i wanted to stick around have that spaghetti and meatballs. so i figured it had gone okay. either way i was going to get a nice meal out of it. couple of days later i found out i got the role. >> his performance in "as good as it gets" earned kinnear an
oscar nomination for best supporting actor. >> mommy and daddy are home. >> two years after you're hosting late night show your nominated for an oscar. >> yeah. that was a great thing because i honestly had done a couple of films. really didn't know what i was doing and knowing, having my work recognized in that way was super cool and gave me the confidence to try to make a gig out of this. >> so far the gig is up to nearly 40 movies. many of them he's played real people. there was bob crane, sex addicted star of hogan's heroes in "auto focus." >> can i get you something, another drink. >> and emmy nominated role of jfk in the tv mini series "the kennedys." >> i'm not going to sit in our own plane. >> you can't just --
that's my decision. >> do you like portraying real people? >> i do. obviously some people come with more of a worldwide awareness than other people. and there's a little added burden i think from the audience to try to get that right. >> i can't imagine that with jfk. >> nobody has any idea of what to expect there. >> he died when i was about yourz latest real person he's playing is todd, small town pastor whose young son colton had a near death experience and claims to have seen heaven. >> about the hospital. how do you feel about that, did that scare you? >> no. that's where angels sing to me. >> the angels sang to you? >> yeah. >> hiv senn for real, which opens wednesday tells the story of the family and the father's journey from doubt to conviction. it's a movie the entertainment
process labeled -- how would you classify the movie? >> that term faith base asked a little lazy. i'd say -- >> why is that lazy? >> feel like it's -- what does that mean? there's plenty of people that don't believe in this story. there is plenty ever people that do believe in it. i think there are some people who are not sure. >> "heaven is for real" not the only movie with religious themes out this season. the epic "noah" -- independent "god's not dead" and mark burnett's "son of god" are all among this year's top grossing films. >> when i took this film i thought we'd be the only one in the neighborhood. i didn't know there were going to be series of other movies in this zone. they're doing very well. they are resonating with audiences. i didn't have any idea.
>> when he was in the operation, colton saw jesus and angels. >> but how? >> how could he see -- i don't know, but he did. >> the movie may have built in audience. todd's book of the same name has been near the top of best seller list since it came out in 2010. >> the title is not ambiguous. how do you tell that story without it feeling like a church sermon for two hours, how do you tell it? >> nor kinnear a family man with wife and three kids, part that have answer was in the father-son connection. >> do you believe colton's story? >> i probably come out somewhere at the end of the movie where todd says, i believe he saw something. you know, i think that's okay for me. i have three young daughters and they have fertile imaginations
some of the most honest observations i've ever received are from my kids. i think todd's journey of trying to discern what it was he was hearing at this time was part of what made it interesting for me. >> do your kids like your movies? >> they like the ones they can go see. >> we met on a golf course where kinnear now 50 spends a lot of his free time. >> i played hundreds and hundreds of pro-am golf tournaments, you'll find this an interesting statistic. i've won zero times. >> here is another interesting statistic. more than two-thirds of americans believe that there is a heaven. it would be lousy to think that the lights just go out like at the end of sopranos. >> do you think they got golf? >> i now you hope that there's golf.
