we are back. 8:38 obthis tuesday morning with our ongoing series, rememberingf jr. >> one week from today will mark 20 years since he died in a plase cr yet another blow to a family all
8:39 am
too familiar with tragedy. in a moment, we'll talk to one of john's close friends, but first, a look at a life that was remarkab from the start. b he wasorn into history, the young son of a young president cut down in his prime. as a ddler, his simple salute became one of the mosoi pant and enduring images in american history. john lived his life in the spotlight, along with his glamors mother, jacquine kennedy onassis and his older sicaer line. he spoke to "today" about his mom backn 1999. >> she phented for bot of them. and i thi w she deliberate in insuring that h interests and his concerns were part ofgi our upbr, and some of her own, which were not his. >> graduating from brown university, he went to nyu law school and was named the sexiest man alive in 1988. the most eligible bachelor in the world, his ever move snapped by photographers, even his bar exam results were front page
8:40 am
news. after serving a sti in the new york district attorney's office in 1995, he left the law toue pu passion project, starting the glossy "georg magazine, covering politics and pop culture. >> ladies and gentlemen, meet " >> with his career well under way in 1996, john maye calvin klein publicist carolyn bessette, and they embarked on a high profile social life. he talked about his dad's view ofolitics and whether he himselfould ever run. >> i always said that he thought everyone should run for office. and listen, there's lot of time in life to do all sorts of things. >> but he never had that time. on the night of jul 16th, 1999, as he was heading to his cousin's wedding on cape cod, the plane he was piloting, carrying his wife and her sister, craed off martha's vineyard. tragically, bearing at sea the camelot.
8:41 am
john f. kennedy jr. was 38 years old. steven guillen met jfk jr. at brown university. they remained lifelong friends. he's written a new book called america's reluctant prince, it life of john f.r.ennedy good to have you here. time. long what made you decide this was the moment that you wanted to write a book about jfk jr.? >> well, john was alive, i protected his privacy. but my of his friends, now that he's gone, as his friends and also a historian, i want to preserve his legacy. i don't want john to be remembered as the sexiest man alive,he hunk flunk. the john i knew waw so much more complicated than that, and that's the john i try to capture in this book. >> complicated in what ways? >> well, you know, the famous photograph, john on november 25th, 1963, he salutes, raises his right hand and salutes his father on his 3rd birthday. i believe at thatf unfulfilled
8:42 am
transferred to john and he carried that with him his entire life. he used to say he was two people. he was just john, just a privileged member of his generation, but he had a r his entire life, that is john fitzgerald kennedy jr., the son of a slain presidenas and that w a burden that could have crushed most ople. john struggled with it at times. but he handled it with enormous grace. that's really the story i want to tell. you think of the kennedys, you think of public service. but with john, his greatest struggle and achievement was personal, his ability to deal with his burdenimposed upon him and to deal with it with enormous agrace. >> to stay normal, which was so important to jackie. one thick you write about, surprising, his relationship mother. the fact that he was close to his stepfather. closer than i think people really realized, and then lost him, too. so here he had lost his father er a toddler, then his father
8:43 am
figure in rob kennedy. and then aristotle onassis. >> when you think of the trauma he experienced as a child, not only is he witnessing those events, especially the assassination ofis father and uncle,ut be's moving all the time. he moves from the only house he knew, the white house,ot to anr place in washington, to another place, and within a year, four different places. >> what was jackieike in grief? >> she had a difficult time. understandably so. and john used to say that shes wa emotionally absent for a while. he mentioned at one point she drank a little more thanhe should have. but she was struggling with her own grief. which is part of the trauma that john experienced. he experienced trauma through his mother. >> you also write that he wasoi probably to get into electoral politics when he died. >> i'm certain of that. one of the ways i measure that is the way he referred to his father. john, when i first knew him,
8:44 am
referred to him as president kennedy. inhe '90s, he started calling him my father. the last couple years, he called him my daddy. i think for met tha was john finally coming to terms with the fact that -- >> kind of heartbreaking that he started using the toddler's words well into his life. >> that's righ but he was becoming more comfortable with his father's legacy and going into politics. to 's great struggle was create and forge his own identity separate from that of his family andth his . and he did that by keeping politics at a distance. in those final years, he realized politics was in his dna,nd he was talking openly about running for office. when daniel moynahan resigned, there was ae sen seat that came open and john thought seriously about running for the seat but didn't think it was time, but when the last one, the of the last conversations he had hin his life, was talking about running for governor ow nerk in 2001. >> we of course, know of his tragic and untimely death and
8:45 am
those circumstances. he was married. there have been lots of reports about difficulties in that marriage toward the end. i was surprised to read book that he had hoped to have kids and had even had a name in for a child. >> yeah, flynn. >> flynn kennedy. >> yeah. so that was one of the many issues in the relaonship. he wanted to start a family, to have kids. carolyn didn't think the time was right. papazzi were horrible to her. they chased her around. they called her names. john's best friend and his cozzic, anthony, was dyg. carolyn would say this isn't the time. howngan we bri up john f. kennedy iii in this environment? so that was one of many issues they had in their relationship. >> you also wrote that there was a time in your life where he demonstrated an unusual act of kindness and generosity. >> there was. i mean, there are a number of times, but in that last week, when before john died, i
8:46 am
developed this tremor in my hand, w ch i stillhave. great for making martinis, by the way. it's kind of a pain. doctor's t and had a appointment the friday before john died. and the doctor told me i may be in the earlytages of a.l.s., which is not -- you never want to hear those words. and john, i didn't tell john. he found out about hait, and t saturday morning, he calls me up. i told him everything that was going on. there was a long pause, and he savi ste i'll take care of and he repeated it again. stevie, i'll take care of you. and that's the john kennedy i want the world to know about. the johnen kdy who is enormously generous and kind and decent. you know, the following saturday, roughly that same time, i woke up and found out that hislane was missing. and i was helpless. >> so much loss. >> steve, thankdyou. anagain, the book is "america's reluctant prince" and you can find more about thatnd book aore on it at today.com/shop.

8:52 am
chic. >> can any face do this? i never thought i could do this look. >> yes. we move our parts to make a less symmetrical face look prettier we can do waves to hide things that aren't flattering. but i think the biggest secret is you want to start, wet hair, sculpt it down with gel. then you want to lock i it with a wet spray, so this has a little alcohol in it. so it will dry really fast. so it will hold the hair in place while the gel is drying. >> okay. >> then you have this really rock hard super awesomewim cap situation happening, and the only secret is don't let anyone touch yourhair. once that's set, hands off. >> don't touch the do. what is this for? >> i think so many peoplerurn theikin in the sun. this is really less about hair and more about but i love the dry touch sunscreens. >> for your p? greasy. a little dab on this on your
