  • So the movie is called "Just Mercy,"

  • and it's with Jamie Foxx and Michael B. Jordan.

  • And it's a true story, and it's heartbreaking and beautiful and

  • good.

  • And tell everyone what it's about.

  • So it tells the story of this man named Bryan Stevenson, who

  • was a Harvard lawyer, and became very interested in these cases

  • that were happening of men that were being put on death row

  • with very little evidence.

  • And so it tells the story of him first discovering about this

  • and starting his organization, that is still up

  • and running now, called EJI-- the Equal Justice Initiative.

  • It focuses on one case in particular,

  • named Walter McMillian, played by Jamie Foxx.

  • And it's just-- it is a heartbreaking story,

  • but it is ultimately uplifting and so beautiful.

  • And we're so lucky to have people like Bryan

  • on this planet.

  • Yeah.

  • It's an amazing story.

  • I hope everybody sees this movie,

  • for so many different reasons.

  • But it's amazing that he-- this man does this.

  • All right.

  • Let's talk about-- you did "Running

  • Wild with Bear Grylls."

  • Yes.

  • Which, I cannot believe you did that.

  • Yes.

  • I think my mom feels the same way.

  • I mean, I--

  • OK, so there's one part where you

  • have to crawl upside down on a rope,

  • across a river that has crocodiles in it.

  • Yes.

  • How is that-- how was an insurance company allowing you?

  • Questionable.

  • And also I was, like, in the middle of "The Avengers" press

  • tour when I did this.

  • I, like, popped off for a weekend to Panama.

  • Yeah, this was my idea.

  • I can't even blame anyone for this, any of this.

  • But no-- but--

  • I mean, how is that--

  • I mean, he's gotten away with this for so long.

  • But somebody's going to get hurt.

  • It wasn't me.

  • [LAUGHTER]

  • Thank God.

  • So I walked off that island, like, good luck

  • to the next one.

  • It's really fun though.

  • I do recommend it.

  • If anyone-- if you ever come across Bear Grylls

  • and he's, like, oh, yeah-- if you--

  • if he was just, like, hey, little lady, come with me.

  • Just go, yes.

  • Do it.

  • I understand the donkey in Madrid.

  • I get the "yes" on that.

  • Right.

  • This "yes" I don't get.

  • Because really, there's no--

  • this is for real dangerous stuff.

  • I guess the problem was that I didn't

  • believe that it would be real.

  • Case in point was the first day.

  • We're walking around the mangrove,

  • and as we come around this corner, a crocodile

  • or alligator-- whichever one, goes, like, "Raa."

  • And I wasn't even fazed by it.

  • And everyone was, like, oh, my God.

  • And the camera was, like, good thing it did that.

  • So we'll go this way.

  • And I was, like-- yeah, but that wasn't real.

  • And they were like, what do you mean?

  • I was, like, that was an animatronic.

  • And they were like, no.

  • That was not part of the plan.

  • That's just a reptile that lives here.

  • An animatronic?

  • You thought you were at Universal Studios or something?

  • I mean, yes.

  • I realized that the only time I've been around something

  • like that was at Disneyland.

  • And so my brain just was, like, this is pretend land.

  • And I didn't think about--

  • Wow.

  • I know.

  • I've been working too much--

  • is what I've gotten out of this.

  • That's amazing.

  • Well, I can't believe you did that.

  • But it's amazing that you did that.

  • I'm very impressed by you in so many ways.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • The movie is called, "Just Mercy."

  • It opens in select theaters Christmas day--

  • and everywhere January 10.

  • We'll be right back.

So the movie is called "Just Mercy,"
