Halle Berry: 'I'm Not Going to Play Oprah'
Ellen gave Halle a life-vest for her daughter Nahla that says “If Found Return to Oscar Winner Halle Berry.” Ha!
The 44-year-old actress told Ellen that despite rumors, she is not going to be playing Oprah Winfrey in a film version of the talk show host’s life.
“I’m not going to play Oprah,” she said. “No, I was like (pretends to be on phone), ‘Hey, Oprah, Am I playing you? Just tell me because nobody has told me this.’ I don’t know where these rumors come from.”

Halle: “So she was standing there and I had her hand, I swear I did, and then all of a sudden, I looked down at a price tag or something and she toddled off for what seemed like two seconds and then the next thing I know, I looked back around and it was like whoosh. Gone. And I said, “Nahla? Nahla? Nahla?” Gone. And my heart just started…And I’m like “CLOSE THE STORE! SHUT THE DOOR! MY DAUGHTER’S GONE!”"
Ellen: “You went from like zero to crazy. So what happened?”
Halle: “She was right next to me. In a rounder of clothes where the pants were hanging. Right there. And after I became a lunatic and totally embarrassed myself, she stuck her head out and was like, “Hi.”"
