George Zimmerman, notoriously acquitted in the killing of a black Florida teenager, says he smiles when people recognize him in public.

"When you're somewhere and people recognize you and know who you are and they're looking at you, what do you do?" CNN's Chris Cuomo asked Zimmerman in an interview that aired Monday, his first since his acquittal in 2013.

"Smile," Zimmerman said.

Asked how often people smile back, Zimmerman said they're returned "99 percent of the time."
