Exclusive: Oprah: “I’ve Never Called Anybody A B*tch”

Published

Besides refusing to use the N-Word, Oprah Winfrey also doesn’t use the B-word.

HipHollywood sat down with Lady O for the press junket for Lee Daniel’s The Butler where she revealed that until muttering the word during a pivotal scene in the film, she had never used it before.

“I don’t think I’ve ever used the B-word,” said Winfrey. “I’ve never called anybody a B*tch my whole life, so it was kinda fun.”

To be exact, Winfrey, who plays Gloria Gaines, calls Yaya Alafia’s character Carol “a trifling ass b*tch” during a dinner table scene in the film.

But while Winfrey admits it felt good to say, she still doesn’t condone the use of the N-word, and hopes this film helps African Americans understand their history and where they come from.

“In order to continue to move forward in life you have to know who you are,” explains Winfrey. “You have to literally have a root and a foundation of knowing … and to celebrate and to honor.”

Lee Daniels’ The Butler is in theaters August 16th.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
