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.”
