It's not every day a former President of the United States stops by the "Piers Morgan Live" studio.
But that is precisely what happened in March, as Jimmy Carter joined Piers Morgan to discuss the seemingly unaddressed human rights abuses that he hopes his new book will help reverse.
“It's very similar to the racial discrimination I knew when I was a boy, uh, living on the farm when the same thing happened just to black people in particularly the South and some other parts of the world,” said Carter, speaking of gender inequalities impacting women. “The white people deplored it, but they didn't do anything about it, most of them, because it really was beneficial to them to be given the best jobs and the best education and all the advantages over our black neighbors.”
The 39th President of the United States, whose time in office was marked by global humanitarian efforts, is the author of over 30 books ranging from global policy and presidential power to personal journeys in his faith and family. He is a man with an endless list of accomplishments, however the collection of goals he's yet to tackle may be more lengthy. At the top of his list today is helping to promote and create the fair and equal treatment of women.
“In our American universities, there is horrible sexual violence, very seldom reported,” said the author of "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power", his newest work. “The same thing happens in the U.S. military, as you know.” FULL POST
With an entertainment career that has spanned more than half a century, an Academy Award on his mantle and a place in pop culture lore for his iconic portrayal of "the Dude" in the famed 1998 film "The Big Lebowski," actor Jeff Bridges has shown a voracious appetite for the movie business. However, off camera, the 64-year-old is making sure everyone eats, in particular children.
In 1984, Bridges joined forces with others in the industry, founding the "End Hunger Network," and in 2010 he became the official spokesman for the "No Kid Hungry" campaign.
Check out the above video as Bridges joins Piers Morgan to speak further about the cause that's been close to his heart for more than 30 years, including the forthcoming “Breakfast After the Bell” initiative which is designed to give children more nutrition in the morning, so as to help them better learn in the classroom.

Edgar Martirosyan assumed he was simply going to deliver a few pizzas. Not unlike the pies he's passed out seemingly 100 times before. He'd ring the bell, accept payment and quickly head out for the next order.
But this wasn't any ordinary order. And it was to be no ordinary delivery. Instead of dropping by a typical Los Angeles home or business, Martirosyan's stop on Sunday was at The Dolby Theater in Hollywood, and it was Ellen DeGeneres with the rumbling tummy.
It didn't matter that the 56-year-old comedian and television icon was in the middle of hosting the 86th edition of The Oscars. She was craving a couple of large pies and Martirosyan was making the delivery.
"I was shocked and I came out with the pizzas, they told me, wait, the pizzas are for writers," Martirosyan explained to Piers Morgan and Maria Menounos Monday evening. "I was waiting, and then Ellen came out and told me, 'I'm going to tell you to follow me.'" FULL POST
Techy businessman, Dallas Mavericks owner, "Shark Tank" investor ... self-made billionaire Mark Cuban wears many hats, including "dad" to three children with wife Tiffany Stewart.
Joining Piers Morgan this evening for a face to face, primetime interview, Cuban details the challenges that come with raising down-to-earth kids amidst massive wealth. Having started out bar tending and couch-crashing before innovating his way to the top, instilling values into his son and two daughters is part of Cuban's at-home business plan. However, the 55-year-old also preaches and leads with an overlying theme of balance:
"I don't want to be the overbearing dad," Cuban tells the "Piers Morgan Live" host. "I want to be supportive. I want them to love what they do." FULL POST
“What's In Your Wallet?"
It's been asked by seafaring vikings, and Jimmy Fallon. And David Spade. And Alec Baldwin. But in recent months, no one's made better use of the inquiry than Piers Morgan.
In November, the CNN host had billionaire Warren Buffett going into his pocket. A month later he forced his former boss Donald Trump to dig into his billfold, and reveal “I have very little cash on me. I like to keep it that way."
And this evening at 9, Mark Cuban is the latest 10-figure man asked to unmask his money. FULL POST
His net worth is in excess of two billion dollars. He owns a basketball team, is on television every week and only wears a suit if it's a "damned good reason."
Well, apparently joining "Piers Morgan Live" for an hour-long interview isn't enough incentive for Mark Cuban to wear a suit and tie. But just because the Dallas Mavericks owner wasn't able to channel his inner Justin Timberlake, that doesn't mean he wasn't rather colorful during his visit with Piers Morgan.
"I remember the second it happened because, I was working at home in the morning, and watching the stock, because we were getting close," he explains, recalling the day he became a 10-figure man. "And I was literally naked in front of my computer when it crossed the line, and I was a billionaire." FULL POST
“What's In Your Wallet?"
With the Academy Awards about a week away, tonight, the man whose autobiography inspired the Oscar-nominated film "The Wolf of Wall Street" joins "Piers Morgan Live" for a live, hour-long, face to face interview.
Depicted on screen by legendary Hollywood icon Leonardo DiCaprio, Jordan Belfort is made to be a man who employs unethical stockbroking tactics as a way to bilk investors out of hundreds of thousand of dollars.
And while the 51-year-old has no trouble admitting his shady business practices, he does take exception to the way the movie portrays the relationship with his family. In fact, he went so far as to take his eldest child to the theater so as to point out any inaccuracies: FULL POST
With the film based upon his life having already grossed more than 110 million dollars, Jordan Belfort has been able to begin taking small steps towards making retributions to the countless investors he swindled.
Tonight, the inspiration for "Wolf of Wall Street," Belfort joins Piers Morgan exclusively for a live, hour long interview, during which the host lists some of the people impacted by the behavior that landed Belfort in prison for nearly two years:
"Peter Springfield: an architect in Mystic, Connecticut, he lost half of his life savings. Dr. Alfred Vitt, a retired dentist, who lost $250 thousand dollars. One victim, called Bob Shearin, reportedly lost $130 thousand dollars, he told The Telegraph Newspaper this," details Morgan, before quoting from the article: FULL POST
For years Jordan Belfort employed dishonest business practices to prey on American investors. But tonight, the real “Wolf of Wall Street” is nothing if not transparent.
Joining "Piers Morgan Live" for the first interview since the release of the Oscar-nominated film which depicts his decadent rise to excessive wealth, Belfort notes that the movie, and his autobiography upon which it's based, should be viewed as manuals of what to avoid, not mimic.
Piers Morgan asks Belfort if there's a concern that “The Wolf of Wall Street,” which features superstar Leonardo DiCaprio in the titular role, might serve to glamorize the former stock broker's villainous behavior, Belfort offers a few key contrasts that separate the current Oscar-nominated file, and it's similarly-themed predecessors, including the 1987 classic “Wall Street” starring Michael Douglas.
