Oprah won’t get ‘buck naked’ for new movie

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - PEOPLE -

LOS AN­GE­LES: “I re­fused to get naked.” Oprah Win­frey, one of the most pow­er­ful women in the world, de­clared she would not be strip­ping off her lin­gerie to get “buck naked” on screen.

The bil­lion­aire TV tsa­rina 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. Glo­ria be­comes bored with her mid­dle-class life while her hus­band’s off look­ing af­ter “that other fam­ily in the White House”.

Glo­ria starts to fool around with a neigh­bour, played by Ter­rence Howard. Daniels would have pre­ferred her to go much fur­ther dur­ing her scenes with Howard, said Win­frey.

“You know, he would have had me buck naked on that sofa if I had let him!”

She added she and Daniels ar­gued fe­ro­ciously about how Glo­ria would be­have. She in­sisted it would make no sense for Glo­ria to go to bed with Howard.

Win­frey pro­vides the heat in The But­ler in more ways than one. Not only does she look ter­rific, but she nails the char­ac­ter com­pletely: she’s a force of na­ture on screen. – Daily Mail
