Unlike some young desperate actresses, Oprah Winfrey, one of the most powerful women in the world has declared she would not be stripping off her lingerie to get ‘buck naked’ on screen.
The billionaire TV tsarina and occasional actress made this comment when she was speaking about her role in director Lee Daniels’s movie-The Butler, in which she plays Gloria, wife of a White House butler played by Forest Whitaker.
According to Oprah, in the movie, Gloria becomes bored with her middle-class life while her husband’s off looking after ‘that other family in the White House’.
And after a while Gloria starts to drink, and fools around with a neighbour, played by Terrence Howard.
She continued that director-Lee Daniels would have preferred her to go much further during her scenes with Howard. ‘You know, he would have had me buck naked on that sofa if I had let him!’ she told a MailOnline reporter…
Oprah Winfrey added that she and Daniels argued ferociously about how Gloria would behave in the movie and Daniel did a lot of screaming…
She insisted it would make no sense for Gloria to go to bed with Howard. ‘If she’s going to roll around in bed in the middle of the afternoon,’ she explained, then it would be ‘a lie, a fake thing’.
