Oprah Winfrey is making her film debut 15 years post Beloved with her role as Gloria in Lee Daniels’ The Butler
So what was it that caught Oprah’s attention and brought her back to the big screen?
Oprah shares: “The thing that really drew me was Gloria herself. I get to be this kind of sassy broad who smokes and drinks and takes things a little too far sometimes, so that was interesting.”
The role is so out of character for Oprah, in fact, director Lee Daniels says she’d never even held a cigarette.
Adding, he had to teach her how to smoke!
Catch The Butler in theaters tomorrow.
