Transcript for Ashley Judd 'Blessed' to Return in 'Dolphin Tale 2'
Great to have our friend Ashley Judd with us this morning. She's starring in "Dolphin tale 2." She's speaking to the daughter of winter's doctor. What if I came to work and place was empty? Room after room, no patients. A bunch of bored doctors because everybody was fip. No need for surgery. No sick people. No one's here honey, because they want to be. They're here because they need to be. I assure you no one stays one minute longer than they have to. Talk to your dad. You kids take us by surprise. You grow up so stinking fast. Boy, how true is that. Welcome back. Thank you, good morning. You say you feel blessed to have this role again. Oh, so blessed. Absolutely. What fwragrabs you about it? So many things.

Tell us about the aquarium. What is the first movie and now the second meant for that? It's meant that we as audience members and animal lovers have helped increase the number of animals they have been able to help and return to the wild. Cma is the real deal.
