Oprah Winfrey sits down with The Hollywood Reporter inside her home in Montecito, California and talks all things business and success, including the challenges that plagued OWN and Lee Daniels’ bad timing when he came knocking about The Butler. But the 59-year-old media magnate also opens up about having to pass on motherhood and knowing she made the right decision.
If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.
Deeper into the interview Oprah expresses her desire to “scale back on” her crazy schedule, hoping to settle into her property’s main house with longtime lover, Stedman Graham.
It was about making space for a new life, which is what I’m getting ready to create for myself in California… I realized I couldn’t remember the last time Stedman and I had been out.
