7:02 am
overnight. national investigative correspondent jeff rossen has cover this had case from the very beginning. jeff, good morning to you. >> hey, matt, good morning to you. after everything, all the witnesses, all the talk, all the arguments, oscar pistorius is going to jail, sentenced to five years. the judge, as you mentioned, handing down her decision a short time ago saying, yes, pistorius is a first-time offender. yes, he's involved with children's charities. but when he shot and killed his girlfriend, he was negligent, firing that gun four times into a bathroom, knowing someone was there, aggravating circumstances, the judge said, forcing jail time. oscar pistorius, stoic, walking into court this morning. his freedom, his future on the line. and from the very start, it didn't look good for him. >> this would be a sad day for this country if an impression were to be created that there was one law for the poor and disadvantaged and another for the rich and famous. >> reporter: then the moment of
7:03 am
truth. >> mr. pistorius, please rise. the following is what i consider to be a sentence that is fair. the sentence improsed is the maxim imprisonment of five years. >> five years for killing his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, guards immediately escorting him downstairs to a holding cell to be fingerprinted. minutes later we watched as he's loaded into this police van, in custody. >> given the fact that oscar was convicted of culpable homicide, i think this is a just and fair sentence. sentenced to five years imprisonment. he only needs to serve a minimum of ten months, after which he could be plasd on house arrest. >> reporter: after the sentencing, oscar's uncle, arnold pistorius, speaking with reporters. >> the court has now handed down judgment and sentence. and we accept the judgment.

7:42 am
my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

8:16 am
all right. back now with our ongoing series, "love your selfie." glamour surveyed 1,000 women ages 18 to 40, to find out how they really felt about their bodies. this year, they did it again to see how things had changed with some surprising results. cindy levie is "glamour's" editor in chief. good morning. >> good morning. >> surprising results. >> yeah. >> you would think we would feel better because there's so much talk of body image. >> i won't sugar coat it. these were difficult results. we did the survey for the first time back in 1984, 41% of women said they didn't feel good about their bodies. now the number has risen to 54%. that's starting and not great news. we looked at men, too. they're not immune here. 33% of them said they don't feel great about their bodies but they don't seem to be as
8:17 am
troubled by it as women are. >> it's interesting. when you see lena dunnham who talk about fat shaming, there's women and images out there that make you think we feel comfortable with who we are. >> i think there's a real movement toward body acceptance. it's a difficult thing for a lot of women to really internalize. >> all right. so, what's different? what makes the difference, do you think? >> primarily social media. that's the one factor that we found made a difference. the more time a woman spends on social media, the worse she feels about her body. >> this is interesting. you think when we look at celebrities, we look at their bodies and it makes you go, oh, god, i hate myself. >> no. it's actually the opposite. celebrities have a lot of help and they have a whole pack of trainers and dieticians who help them. >> sure. >> when you're looking at women on social media, you're thinking that's the girl next door f she can do it, i ought to be able to do it. >> let's talk about an experiment you did.
8:18 am
you took these three women, which make me hate myself a little, too. >> we showed these bodies without the heads. you can't tell if this is a famous person or somebody you might see on social media, girl on facebook. then we showed them the same pictures with the heads that revealed they were a model, celebrity and serena williams, tennis player. in fact, they felt worse after looking at the pictures without the heads. >> why is that? >> they felt this is an anonymous woman posting a picture of herself and she really looks great. when they see a celebrity, they think i don't have to rise to that standard. >> we're comparing ourselves to our neighbors, our friends, people in the junior league or whatever and that makes us feel worse? >> exactly. the number of hours that a woman spends looking at pictures on social media is the factor that determines how she's going to feel about her body. >> sometimes you post a pick, you think you look good. you don't even want to look for likes but you kind of do and you're like three people liked my picture? that's it?
8:19 am
>> the average woman has become a like-aholic. they go back to refresh to see how many people liked their pictures. it's not the number of hours, it's the fact of life, going down the rabbit hole of facebook and instagram. >> give us a couple of tips. >> women who had better body image, a few women in our survey said i feel great about myself and they had a few things in common. first of all, they all told us that they exercise. when you exercise, you're really appreciating what your body can do, not just how it looks. >> okay. >> additionally, they told us that they limited the amount of time they spent on social media. and we all love social media. >> i know, but get off of it sometimes. >> it's a fact of life. but enough is enough. do that self check. do i feel better or worse about myself when i log on? >> all good advice. thank you. we appreciate it. from ways to improve your body satisfaction head to
8:20 am
let's head over to matt. >> thank you very much. stars of the screen and the stage right here. bradley cooper, patricia clarkson, alessandro nivola are getting ready for the broadway revival of "the elephant man." reunion for you guys as well. you did this in massachusetts. which one of you picked up the phone and said ringo, we're getting the band back together? >> after we did williamstown, we thought wouldn't it be amazing if we were able to do this again? james needleander said let's do this on broadway. >> the movie in, 1980 or something like that. >> 1980. >> it's a very challenging story. is it more challenging on stage? >> yes. >> yeah. it's a completely different play than the film. the film wasn't actually based on the play. the big difference, the obvious difference is that bradley doesn't have any prosthetic makeup on. everything is done -- >> it's just beautiful bradley becoming -- that's the conceit
8:21 am
of the play, that a beautiful man plays him. >> there's a scene early on in the play where there's a big projection of the photograph of the real elephant man. >> joseph merrick. >> joseph merick. i stand on one side of it and i stand on the other and i explain to the evidence every detail of his physical deformity and he takes it on as i describe it. >> can you give me a sense of what you're talking about? i want the whole thing, if you don't mind. this guy was born terribly disfigured. he was part of this traveling freak show. >> well, he actually -- didn't happen until he was 5. it started to get worse and worse. he actually solicited the help of a guy named tom norman and wanted to join, because he couldn't make a living doing anything else. >> i know you're not going to do it for me, although it is wishful thinking. how do you perform -- >> maybe you don't want me to.
8:22 am
>> can you give me a hint of how you contort yourself? >> if you watch all the different products, david bowie did it, you interpret it any way you want to. for me, i don't know. it sort of is something that -- i guess it starts with the breath and then it sort of just happens. the truth is, the best part is they look at me as if i am merrick. >> it's a remarkable transformation before your eyes. it's quite breathtaking when you see it happen. >> maybe it happens so beautifully because this is something you have been thinking about and doing for a long time. >> yeah. >> a bit from this show or this play was part of your masters thesis at the actor's studio. >> yeah and the film was my original introduction to the whole story when i was a kid and my father said to me -- that's the reason i wanted to become an actor, david lynch's movie. i discovered there was a play and did it for my thesis in grad school and we did it two years ago. >> what's the takeaway?
8:23 am
for those not familiar with the story, what do you want people to leave the theater feeling? >> it's an extraordinary night in the theater. it's incredibly profound experience to watch this man that we have all fallen in love with, joseph merrick, that we love deeply. but you watch this journey. and it's very funny and incredibly heartbreaking at the same time. >> a lot of it is what it is to be human, because this man is so disfigured that he almost looks like an animal and has been treated like an animal all of his life. >> isn't that the famous line from the movie? i'm not an animal? >> the most civilized of us all. >> the doctor i play rescues him from this sort of circus freak show and sets him up to live in kind of civilized quarters, but wants to make him a human being and doesn't acknowledge that, in fact, he is a human being.
8:24 am
and that's his great falling. >> clearly, there are some very serious themes and issues here. it would be horrible if, in the middle of a show like this, you got like a giggle attack, like, you know, i actually saw when you did "the tonight show.." >> i don't know what you're talking about. >> this is epic. you and fallon got into something that could not stop. i don't want to jinx you. that would be horrible. >> that would be -- >> to do in the middle of an emotional scene. >> especially contorted. >> you should just eliminate that from even your mind of that happening. >> thank you forle putting that in there. >> i can see the audience reacting horribly to that. >> that would not be good. >> don't even wear that hat. >> exactly. i've had those moments. when you're in them, you can't get out of them. >> it's over. >> it really is. you're in rehearsals now. this opens november 7th? >> turn off your cell phones in the theater, okay? we don't want that distraction
8:25 am

8:41 am
>> keanu, welcome back. good to see you. >> good morning. >> this isn't a disney film. >> no. there's a dog in it, but it's not -- >> no. this is -- you're very choosey about your roles. this one is a little dark. it involves dark characters, doing dark things, often times in dark places. why did you want to do this one? >> it's not just dark. it's fun as well. >> the action parts are wild. no question. >> yeah. action and, you know, i think that the -- as you saw, the character is grieving. his wife has given him this gift and these guys come into his home, beat him up and kill this dog. for john, it's about grief and about reclaiming and a renowned assassin, changed his life for love and now he's going back into the darkness. you go into this underground world of thieves and criminals, but it's got a sense of code and honor and it's a heightened
8:42 am
world. and it's fun. >> it is fun. but what i meant by the darkness is what you just said. it's underground, seedy, grimy world. >> everyone is really well dressed. >> and then killing each other. you look great when you kill people, things like that. you are doing so much in terms of the action side of this movie. >> absolutely. >> as al busted you on, as we were out on the plaza, you just turned 50. >> the old half century. >> yes. do you find it harder to do these kinds of things or do you call in the stunt men more after you turn 50? >> no. >> you did all of this? >> i want to do everything as much as i can. action should be tied to character and emotion and the story. the more that i can do -- directors wanted to do long takes and not make it cutie. the more that you can see me and go on the journey with the character, the more emotional it is, the more connection you have. and in terms of like, you know, running up and down stairs and being 50, you just become more
8:43 am
efficient. >> more efficient? >> more efficient in terms of how you learn, what you can't do, what you can do. >> and you consume more aleve and advill. >> no, you take really cold ice bath. >> is that what you did? >> every night. >> how does 50 feel? >> it's only been a couple of months. but i'm glad i'm here. >> it beats the alternative? >> it does. >> you're choosey with your roles and always have been. what is in the pipeline for you? what is the next big thing that you would like to take on? >> thank you for asking. the past year, i did two films after "john wick." i worked with eli roth on a home invasion movie called "knock knock" and i worked with courtney hunt who did a wonderful film called "frozen river" in 2008 and that's called "the whole truth," courtroom drama where everyone is lying. >> you mentioned the home invasion movie. i'm not going to make light of
8:44 am
this at all but you had two weird experiences at your house where two women broke into your -- separate incidents. >> yeah. >> one in your library and one ended up in your swimming pool. >> the pool and the guest room shower. >> what was the deal there? >> i don't know, matt. they just wanted to come and visit. they wanted to come and hang out. one at 4:00 in the morning on a saturday. heard this noise, looked up and there was a dark figure in the doorway. anyway, i hope everybody is okay. everybody's all right. >> but it does shake your world a little bit. i've been in a home where it's been invaded. it's no fun. >> no, it's not fun. >> "speed," is this something like the 25th anniversary of "speed"? >> something like that. >> you were 25 or 24 when you shot that movie? >> yeah. >> i'm getting back to the 50 thing. i'm going to work that back in every other question. this one is called "john wick." it is a thrill ride, no question about it. good to see you. it opens friday. coming up next, youtube

>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today's take" with al roker, natalie morales, willie geist and tamron hall live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >> welcome back to "today." it's tuesday morning, october 21st, 2014. a beautiful day here in new york city. i'm willie along with al, natalie and tamron. i have a question for you guys. >> oh, boy. >> all of us have had the opportunity, no matter how brief or how long it's been, to have some interaction with the president of the united states. we've been lucky to go to a holiday party or something like that. >> yeah. >> have you thought about what you would say if you ever encountered the president, before you met him? here's what i'm going to say. you've got your moment. what are you going to do with it? >> hi, mr. president, nice to meet you. >> but do you have a little line prepared?
9:01 am
>> like a comedy routine? >> i don't know. >> a couple of minutes. >> you think of what you're going to say when you meet somebody like that. you only have a certain amount of time. how do you get in and get out? here is one guy's answer to that question. president obama was voting early when he was back in illinois and chicago yesterday. as the president stood next to a fellow voter at the box, her name is aya cooper, her boyfriend decided to chime in. here is what he said. >> you know, i wasn't really planning on it. >> did he really just say that? >> there is an example of a brother, for no reason whatsoever -- >> i knew he was going to say something smart. >> and now you'll be going back home and talking to your friends about -- what's his name? >> mike. >> i can't believe mike, he is
9:02 am
such a -- i was just mortified. fortunately the president was nice about it. >> i am freaking out right now. >> and so was i. >> thank you very much. >> mike seems like he's a decent guy. >> this is not happening. >> oh, it happened. >> wow! >> mike, that's your line? >> way to go, mike. and, by the way, he's only got the secret service guys -- >> i wonder if they're still together. >> when you go home to your friends, you're going to say i was mortified. like this is how you'll explain. >> he doesn't even break stride, though. >> never looked up from the voting booth. >> the coolest person reaction to that. i would have said, what did you -- i don't know what i would have thought. >> mike -- here is what happened. mike got nervous. >> yeah. >> he said i'm going to go with humor. >> okay.
9:03 am
>> i'm going to do something other people don't do, don't touch my girlfriend. probably when it left his mouth -- >> the president will never forget you. >> forget about his girlfriend. mike's mom -- mike's mom -- oh! >> it's a good thing mike wasn't seen on camera, though, right? >> his finger is famous. >> which was the other part. he pointed. >> his girlfriend, meanwhile, is everywhere. she's like, thanks a lot, honey. >> isn't it kind of odd? what are the chances that they would be voting and her name is voter. >> what? >> oh, al. >> it's the captions. the caption said "voter" and it spelled out what everybody said because the audio was a little low. >> it was an interesting thing you did there. we were talking about when significant others or friends embarrass you, like what's up with the voter thing that we missed? has there been a moment where you embarrassed deborah. >> every day. >> or deborah embarrassed you? >> i was going to say, let's reask the question.
9:04 am
what day haven't -- >> what was the last moment? >> -- embarrassed my wife or children? which which kind of becomes a national holiday when that happens. you're married and you're a parent, you do something dumb every day. >> natalie, anything come to mind? >> no. like al said, i think you do things and then it becomes oh, i shouldn't have said that. >> and generally the wife doesn't do embarrassing -- >> it's the husband. >> it's us. we're idiots. >> i don't think so. that's not true. you guys are good. >> no, no, we're not good. my kids are old enough to be embarrassed. before they think you're a god. lucy is 7 and she's like, oh, boy. singing and dancing to that song again. >> does feet of clay mean anything? >> embarrassing your kids, that happens a lot more often. my kids can be mortified over any little thing. god forbid, josh, i think that girl likes you and he just collapse. >> oh, don't do that. >> he can't do that. >> that's a low blow. that's when he won't clean his
9:05 am
room. >> 10 going on 11. he's not there yet. >> it's coming. >> it's coming very soon. >> it's coming. monica lewinsky, you may have heard her chat by now. she is out. she is coming out, speaking out now for the very first time, though, you're really kind of getting a sense of how she is trying to make this comeback. she's launching a campaign to help end cyber bullying and the culture of what she calls -- what is internet shaming and she explained how she became a household name instantly. take a listen. >> 16 years ago, fresh out of college, a 22-year-old intern in the whitehouse and, more than average averagely romantic, i fell in love with my boss in a 22-year-old sort of way. it happens. but my boss was the president of the united states.
9:06 am
that probably happens less often. now, i deeply regret it for many reasons. not the least of which is because people were hurt and that's never okay. >> so to give you a little context, she was speak at an auditorium of millenials, 30 under 30 summit in philadelphia, and she basically was talking to people who she said you probably don't really know who i am, except for a lyric in eminem or beyonce song. my name was used widely. she had to give everybody a lesson in who she was. how could we forget, those of us who went through this sad time in our country's history. but it's interesting, because the question then comes about with the cyber bullying, she claims that she was publicly shamed, humiliated.
9:07 am
>> she was. >> she was. >> but she was responsible for her actions. and she did say she does take blame for that. it's interesting. the first time you're saying she loved the president. i think it's interesting words but she said at the same time, she's like, i was -- let me find her words exactly. when i asked myself how best to describe how those last 16 years have felt, i always come back to that word shame. my own personal shame, shame that befell my family and shame that befell my country, our country. she's owning up to what happened in that time. >> can you imagine what this would have been like during -- at this point with social media? >> exactly. >> twitter wasn't around. >> google and her name -- the internet was around and that's when she became the first person that really became cyber bullied, in her words. >> i don't excuse what she did, but she has paid her penance. it's been 16 years. to her credit, she has laid low. she has been under the radar for the last decade or so. i'm sure she had opportunity after opportunity to make money, be out in public, do a reality
9:08 am
show, whatever she wanted to do. i'm not excusing what she did but, let's remember, there were two parties to that event. >> exactly. >> one of them has gone on and been applauded and paid lots of money to speak to people and the other has been shamed. >> it's her story, too. she owns this journey, as well. she has a right to speak on it as well whether someone else has political aspirations or not. and a lot of critics have pointed out to the timing. what time is the right time to tell your story? >> perhaps there is a teachable moment to young people out there, that you have to pay the -- you have to be aware of the consequences of your actions, things that you do now can forever live with you. and in your lifetime. >> especially with the internet now. >> the internet now. you put those pictures of yourself out there, that lives with you. that stays with you. that history stays with you. perhaps she is somebody who can look at this and say this is a teachable moment for young people. >> that's what she's doing. >> from something kind of serious with pictures, here is
9:09 am
something a little not so serious. pictures on the internet. a cook at a chili's near tampa, florida. he took some pictures. >> okay. >> at work while he's cooking. >> like this. >> like this, posing on the job. >> okay. >> on his facebook page. he has now since taken it down. he had the caption "sexy cooks of chili's." no offense but isn't that an oxymor oxymoron? >> are you saying he's not sexy? >> he thinks he is. there was no food harmed during that photo shoot. however, he was fired. chili's statement to nbc news, chili's clearly does not encourage this type of behavior in our restaurant. that's good to know. >> thank you, chili's. >> we maintain very high standards of food quality and safeness and the restaurant continues to follow these requirements. additionally, we ended this tea member's employment after learning of his conduct. >> was he fired because of the
9:10 am
