WATCH: Billie Jean King talks “Battle of the Sexes” and more on “CBS Sunday Morning”

On this morning’s episode of CBS Sunday Morning, the terrific Lee Cowan caught up with the tennis legend and advocate for gender equality Billie Jean King. Her 1973 exhibition match against Bobby Riggs is the basis for the new movie Battle of the Sexes starring Emma Stone as BJK and Steve Carrell as Riggs. Cowan asked King: “Looking back, are you more proud of what you did on the court, or what you did off it?”

“Oh, off the court. That’s easy-peasy. Yeah.”

“Do you feel satisfied with what you’ve been able to accomplish?”

“No, I’m never satisfied,” King replied. “No. Never never never. No, I don’t want to be, because I think when you get satisfied, it’s over. No, I want to keep going as long as I can. Every human being matters.”
