3 Minutes With "When Harry Met Sally" Director Rob Reiner

You may know actor/director Rob Reiner from his famous films like "When Harry Met Sally," "The Princess Bride," and "Stand by Me."

Reiner stopped by "New Day" Wednesday to discuss his new romantic comedy "And So It Goes" starring Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas. He says the theme of the film is "live your life until it’s over, and embrace all of it while it’s going on."

We grabbed the filmmaker in the greenroom for a few questions before going on-air on working with Douglas, his favorite film of all time, and maybe more than you thought you wanted to know about his pants. 

reiner great

Q:  WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WORKING WITH MICHAEL DOUGLAS?

Rob Reiner: My favorite part is that he’s a dear friend. I love the guy and he makes my life easier … He’s like an ally on the set. He’s like a friend that has your back all the time. He makes your life really easy.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME? 

Rob Reiner: "It’s a Wonderful Life." I’ve seen it like 40 times. When I saw it as a young person, I liked it very much.

And as I’ve gotten older I like it more and more and more because it’s one of those movies that talks about how precious life is for everyone and how to touch everybody.

Q: WHAT'S ON YOUR BUCKET LIST? 

Rob Reiner: I don’t have a lot of items because I’m learning as I get to my age that the most important things are those clichés that you think you understand when you’re young which is live every moment, and family is the most important.  I’m blessed by those things.

There are countries that I haven’t been to that I’d like to ... I’ve never been to China, I’d like to go there. And I’ve never been to India.

Q: ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE WITH OUR VIEWERS THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?  

Rob Reiner: You haven't asked me my height, my weight or my inseam. Most people don't know my inseam, which I think is 33.

As I get older, maybe it gets shorter, because they say you shrink as you get older. So right now it’s 33 but maybe in a few years it’ll be 32.

Watch video for more on "And So It Goes." The film opens in theaters on July 25th.

Watch 2-Year-Old Amputee Walk on His Own

A 2-year-old amputee who has captured the hearts - and attention - of hundreds of thousands mastered something remarkable on "New Day" Wednesday.

He walked.

Kayden Kinckle catapulted to viral video stardom after his mother, Nikki, shared a video of Kayden walking for the first time on his own with new prosthetics on YouTube.

"I got it!" he exclaims repeatedly in the clip, as a rallying cry of sorts, taking slow yet deliberate steps with a walker.

And this morning, with CNN's Michaela Pereira and Kate Bolduan's cheers of encouragement in the background, Kayden was on the move again - this time shuffling across the CNN set, even making his way toward the anchor desk.

"He's determined like any other two-year-old," Nikki said.

But Kayden has defied expectations his entire life.

He was born with a medical condition that caused his liver and bladder to grow outside of his body.

Many were pessimistic about his health, warning his mother that Kayden would later struggle with medical issues from birth deformities.

Earlier this year, after multiple surgeries, Kayden had his right foot and left leg amputated.

Nikki initially posted the clip of him walking on YouTube in hopes of raising money for Kayden's medical expenses, but she also shared it "just to encourage people."

"Just to see him be encouraged," she said. "And know that everything is possible."

In today's photo of the day, we get this picture of Brazil fans as they watched their team be defeated by Germany in Tuesday's World Cup match.

CNN's Amanda Davies shared this photo saying:

"The dream to nightmares. One of the most ridiculous and incredible nights of football to be part of."

Brazil had not lost a competitive home game since 1975.
