"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": A close look inside Hollywood

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Charges of Hollywood Animal Abuse

The phrase, "No animals were harmed in the making of this film" is a familiar one behind blockbuster movies like "Life of Pi," but how truthful is that mark of approval given to Hollywood films by the American Humane Association?

Tuesday night, Piers Morgan was joined by Gary Baum, the senior writer from the Hollywood Reporter who broke the story on animal abuse in Hollywood films that occurred on the watch of the American Humane Association.

After Baum's story broke, there were a number of statements released in response to the allegations by the A.H.A. claiming their defense, but for Baum, their responses weren't good enough:

"The larger issues still stand," he explains, "the issues of transparency, oversight, responsibility it's just not there."

When explaining to Morgan how he came about uncovering this story, Baum said, "there have been worries and concerns about the A.H.A. and that's something that I'd been looking into a number of months ago, and what I found unfortunately was deeper and wider than I expected."

To learn more about Baum's reporting on the shocking claims of animal abuse in Hollywood films and the A.H.A.'s responsibility in the matter, take a look at the clip above.

  • Hollywood & Guns

President Obama spoke on Tuesday, urging those who call the shots in Hollywood to stop glamorizing gun violence and poorly influencing the youth of America. Piers Morgan sat down with CNN Entertainment Commentator, Krista Smith, to discuss if this is the solution to America's gun problem.

Smith felt that Obama's statement was "a good thing" and that "the industry as a whole will benefit from taking a pause and thinking," but for Smith she believes that at the end of the day, America's gun problem is "a personal responsibility issue. I think it is a mental health issue."

As someone who is no newcomer to the entertainment industry, Smith expressed her doubts that the glamorizing of gun violence will never go away. When giving the example that the violent, gun-ridden video game turned movie "Grand Theft Auto" grossed $800 million the day it was released, and comparing those numbers to the blockbuster hit "Gravity," which didn't see sales anywhere near as high, Smith bluntly explained, "the public wants it."

    I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.
