Oprah Winfrey doesn't cry on cue

Nov 15 2013, 11:28am CST | by Bang Showbiz

Oprah Winfrey struggled to cry on cue for Steven Spielberg.

The media mogul and talk show host says acting allows her to leave herself behind and take on a new role as a character, but she doesn't always find it easy.

She told UK TV's 'Loose Women': "I think my greatest acting lesson was the time I couldn't cry ... Steven Spielberg asked me to cry and I couldn't cry.

"And my [co-star in 'The Colour Purple', Adolph Caesar] said, 'You have to learn to give yourself over to the character and let the character take control and if she wants to cry she will cry and if she doesn't want to cry then not even Steven Spielberg can make her."

Oprah told how the guidance from Adolph - who passed away in 1986 - made her learn to really embody the characters that she was portraying and helped her with her latest role as Gloria Gaines in 'The Butler'.

She added: "I learnt to give myself over to that space with Gloria."

The 59-year-old star gave up fronting 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' two years ago after 20 years, but insists despite what people say, she's not a control freak.

She explained: "I think people think that because I run my own show and have my own business and run a network, that I have the need to be in control. Well, I really don't. What I have the need for is to surround myself with people who know what they're doing and are willing to do it."

Tough Year: Nick Cannon Overlooked For Richard Pryor Role In Favor Of Mike Epps

Aug 26 2014 6:46pm CDT | Source: Bossip.com

First MiMi, now this? Nick Cannon Denied Highly Coveted Richard Pryor Role Mr. Cannon is just losing right and left these days. Apparently Nick wanted the role of Richard Pryor in his upcoming biopic so badly that he changed his appearance and habits to mimic those of the late comedic genius, just to prove to casting directors exactly how serious he was. Unfortunately, none of his tactics worked and Mike Epps was chosen instead…only weeks after ...

Lindsay Lohan’s London boyfriend is ‘an older investment banker’ with two kids

Aug 22 2014 7:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan in NYC on Wednesday. She was stopping by The Bowery Hotel “to visit a friend,” which I’m assuming means what we all think it means. I guess we should just be thankful that the Cracken managed to find a bra because all bras have been MIA in Crackville for months now. Her girls needed support! More girls need support, even the perky girls. Speaking of “support” and mysteriou ...
