Barack Obama gives Lee Daniels’ The Butler two very enthusiastic thumbs up.
During an exclusive radio interview with the Tom Joyner Morning Show on Tuesday, Obama admitted to tearing up during the film. “I teared up just thinking about not just the butlers who have worked here in the White House, but an entire generation of people who were talented and skilled, but because of Jim Crow, because of discrimination, there was only so far they could go,” Obama explained.
The President went on to give props to some of the outstanding performances, including Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey. “And Oprah, my girl, she can act. She’s just a wonderful actress,” Obama shared.
“And I will tell you that the butlers who are now here in the White House, when we first arrived, when Michelle and the girls just first arrived, they could not have been kinder to us and warmer to us,” he added.
Lee Daniels’ The Butler is in theaters now.
