In a rare one-on-one interview with Vogue UK writer Decca Aitkenhead, Winfrey opens up about her thoughts on the current political climate, specifically addressing the #MeToo #TimesUp movement, stating:
“People talk about ‘these are such dark times’, but what if we shift the paradigm? Because I see it differently.” she asserts.
“I see, ‘Isn’t this remarkable that we’re waking up?’ For years, women have endured craziness. This is what’s happening to people. They’re allowing themselves to not just become corroded, but to become hysterical. You’ve got to lean to the happiness.”
Oprah wears a made-to-order green jacquard gown with brooch and jewelled shoes by Erdem. Diamond and ruby hair ornament by Bina Goenka. Emerald and diamond earrings and cuffs by G by Glenn Spiro. Emerald ring with diamond surround by Moussaieff. Emerald and pavé-diamond ring by Bulgari.
Oprah has previously addressed rumors of her running for president in 2020 and she reiterates that the position of POTUS is NOT something she’s aspiring to be:
“In that political structure – all the non-truths, the bullshit, the crap, the nastiness, the backhanded backroom stuff that goes on – I feel like I could not exist,” Winfrey says. “I would not be able to do it. It’s not a clean business. It would kill me.”
