Oprah Winfrey refused to get “naked” for ‘The Butler’

Oprah

Oprah Winfrey refused to get “buck naked” for ‘The Butler’ and regularly had disagreements with her director Lee Daniels about her opposition to nudity.

 

The talk show host – who plays Gloria in the historical fiction drama – was adamant she wasn’t going to bare her flesh in a romantic scene with her co-star Terrence Howard and she regularly had disagreements with her director Lee Daniels about it.

 

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, she said: “You know, he [Daniels] would have had me buck naked on that sofa if I had let him.

 

“He did more screaming than I did – I’m not a screamer.”

 

Oprah’s alter-ego plays the wife of a White House butler (Forest Whitaker), but when she becomes bored with her lifestyle, she strikes up an affair with her neighbor (Howard).

 

However, the 59-year-old actress wasn’t keen on her character inappropriately fondling with her new lover and insisted Gloria shouldn’t go to bed with the man next door.

 

Oprah said: “If she’s going to roll around in bed in the middle of the afternoon, then it would be a lie, a fake thing.”
