'Lee Daniels' The Butler' Cast, Director Talk About Title Fight

The director and all-star cast of Lee Daniels' The Butler address the recent dispute with Warner Bros. that resulted in the name of the film being changed.

The modest Oscar-nominated director added, "I try to touch impoverished kids to teach them that they can do, and they can become filmmakers. And I don't want to say, 'Look at me.' I'm not ready for people to look at me, and I don't know if they will know what you know, which is that the MPAA forced this decision on me."
