11:40 pm
defend all those comments. >> do you understand the concern from parents of younger girls, that some of the wording that you've used to talk about attractiveness or unattractiveness, might make it more difficult for girls who are struggling with their body image and the pressure to be model perfect? >> sure, i do. and, you know, a lot of this is done in the entertainment business. i'm being interviewed for "apprentice," long before i ever thought in terms of running for office, obviously. so this was really something that i just decided to do, but a lot of that was done for the purpose of entertainment. >> he wasn't demeaning and degrading you. he was demeaning and degrading you for entertainment.

12:13 am
>> stephen: that's like 1,000 miles, right? >> yes. we didn't do 1,000 miles. we did about 80 miles from the border of mexico and up to julian. so that's, like, 80 miles. we did 80 miles. >> stephen: the desert, right. >> in desert, mountains. >> stephen: it felt like 1,000 miles, i bet. >> it definitely felt like 1,000 miles. >> stephen: snakes and. >> snakes and my father thought at one point he heard a mountain lion and decided not on tell me about didn't want you to go there but i was pretty sure i heard a mountain lion but in case it wasn't, i didn't want to freak you out. >> stephen: how would your father know what a mountain lion sound like? >> he's a pretty cool guy. he knows this stuff. >> stephen: no troubles out there? >> everything was going great, and our last kay, our last kay of hiking we had about 14 miles to go and we were going to be at julian, but at about mile 10 we
12:14 am
>> no, it was not good. >> stephen: you need that to live, aja. >> yeah. i am-- i am fairly aware. and it was-- it was pretty tight the whole day. so by 10 miles, when we ran out, my father was-- he's going to kill me-- he was struggling just a little bit. and he actually-- he turned to me and said, "go ahead without me. get to the highway. stop a car, and get some water." >> stephen: oh, my god. >> and bring it back. >> stephen: leave me to the lions. >> stephen: did you? did you make it to the highway? >> yeah, i just took off running through the desert. >> stephen: just randoply through the desert? >> yes, by myself. >> stephen: that seems like terrible advice. >> with, like, my pack and my trekking poles in my hand still, racing through the desert to get to the highway. and i tried to also call my sister and i had, like, 5% battery left on my phone. >> stephen: good lord. 5% battery left on the phone.
12:15 am
that's what happened to the donder party. >> my schanel, said i'm like an hour away. i said,"daddy told me to go on without him. we ran out of water." >> stephen: she called for you? >> she calls my mom. my mom calls the police. the police call the fire department. so i want to say my father's totally fine. and. ( cheers and applause ) and a car-- a car on the highway bottle of cold, red powerade, this angel of a man, and i did take it back to my dad. and about an hour after that as we saw the helicopters circling the area where we were, my father looked at me and says, "all i told you to do was go and get some water." ( laughter ) >> stephen: it has a happy ending.
12:16 am
get away with murder." my question for you is you have learned finally how to get away with murder like do you actually know some things about how to get away with murder that the rest of us don't right now? >> it would be really difficult to get away with murder i realized. being on the show, i learned that's not quite right. there would be fingerprint. you could ping our cell phones. we're definitely going to get caught in this moment i think. >> stephen: one way would be to lead an old man desert and leave him there. >> exactly! >> stephen: just advice. >> i mean, the p.c.t. is a place -- >> now you're in an incredibly powerful movie, "birth of a nation," which strangely, actually, takes its name from another movie. what did you think when you heard that they were making can "birth of a nation" when you first heard that title? >> at first i thought they were trying to make, like, a sequel. and i was extremely confused. >> stephen: the first--
12:17 am
look at the ku klux klan. big, bold choice. >> it would be like, i don't know how i'd look in a white hood. >> stephen: exactly, exactly. and they're not going to make that movie-- no one is ever going to make that movie unless trump wins. >> exactly. but when i did see that it was actually going to be about nat turner's slave rebellion in 1831, i thought, oh, wow, a story about the true-- like the true story of black people in this country andhe >> stephen: did you know much about that uprising before you did the movie? >> i'm very embarrassed to say that i did not. i didn't know a lot about it. and i got to do a the love great research, though, and i found out so much, especially about the woman that i play, cherry. it's really interesting -- >> she's nat turner's wife, right? >> she's nat turner we's wife,
12:18 am
richmond constitutional wig printed in 1831, and it's a piece of evidence that says, "i have in my position some papers that i got off nat turner's wife, cherry, by the lash." yeah! >> stephen: that's what it says in the newspaper that this person got documents by whipping the character you are playing. >> yes, yes. >> stephen: it must be an incredibly powerful thing to try to inhabit a character like that and understand what they're going through in this day and age. >> it is powerful, and it's an honor, you breathe life into her again because, you know, she existed. she was real, and she went through this, and stepping into that, even though it was a very intense experience, i'm just really grateful that i had the opportunity to do it. >> stephen: well, we have a clip here. and this is you talking to nat turner, and you need to set this up in any way? >> all i can say is at this point, the rebellion has happened. and, you know, a lot of people are being killed in the process of trying to find nat turner,
