Anjelica Huston Says Oprah Winfrey Won't Talk to Her After She Won Oscar Over Her

Anjelica Huston is suggesting that there is some tension between her and Oprah Winfrey – and it’s all because she won the 1985 Oscar for her work in Prizzi’s Honor over Oprah‘s nomination that same year for The Color Purple.

“She never had me on her show, ever. She won’t talk to me,” Anjelica told New York Magazine.

Anjelica continued, “The only encounter I’ve had with Oprah was when I was at a party for the Academy Awards, a private residence. I was talking to Clint Eastwood, and she literally came between us with her back to me. So all of the sudden I was confronted with the back of Oprah’s head.”

The reporter then asked, “Do you think it’s fair to say it’s because you beat her?”

She responded, “Well, nobody else would dislike me so much as to literally, physically come in between the person I was talking with that way. But I admire Oprah. God knows, she’s made some big steps.”

Oprah Winfrey Honored by Alicia Keys at 'THR' Event, Reveals Her Gift for Royal Baby

Oprah Winfrey is joined by Alicia Keys on the red carpet while attending The Hollywood Reporter’s Empowerment in Entertainment Event on Tuesday (April 30) at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

Alicia was on hand to present Oprah with the very first Empowerment in Entertainment award.

On the red carpet, Oprah opened up about what the gift she is getting for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s baby. She was in attendance at the couple’s wedding last year and is a friend of the family.

“I have a standard gift that I do for people that I really care about. I don’t know the baby’s name or the baby’s gender, but this baby will have enough books to last a lifetime,” Oprah told Access Hollywood.

FYI: Alicia is wearing a Marc Jacobs dress and KatKim ear pins. Guests enjoyed two specialty Casamigos cocktails, Pink Flamingo and Margarita Verde.

Oprah Winfrey Reveals the Upsetting Reason She Left '60 Minutes':

Oprah Winfrey is on the cover of THR‘s brand new issue.

Here’s what the famed TV personality had to share with the mag…

On why she recently left 60 Minutes: “I’ve removed myself from that. It was not the best format for me … How should I say this? Never a good thing when I have to practice saying my name and have to be told that I have too much emotion in my name…. I think I did seven takes on just my name because it was ‘too emotional.’ I go, ‘Is the too much emotion in the Oprah part or the Winfrey part?’ I was working on pulling myself down and flattening out my personality — which, for me, is actually not such a good thing.”

On who she will support in the 2020 election: “Right now, I’d probably want to sit down and talk to Butta [Pete Buttigieg] … “Mayor Pete” feels easier. I like saying “Butta.” (Laughs.) So I’m reading about him. I have Kamala’s book. I just got the Vanity Fair piece on Beto [O’Rourke]. I’d done some research background stuff on him before. I already know Cory [Booker]. So I’m quietly figuring out where I’m going to use my voice in support.”

On whether she wants to return to acting: “No, it doesn’t feed me anymore … I think to be really, really good at it, you’ve got to do it a lot. You’ve got to work at it. And it’s got to be something that you have true passion about. I don’t think it’s something you can dabble in. It was fun to be Mrs. Which, and I did that because I wanted to go to New Zealand and wear the costumes. But no, it doesn’t feed my soul anymore.”

Oprah Encourages Women to Rock the Boat & Change The World

Oprah Winfrey wants women to rock the boat!

The legendary talk show host stepped out for the Women in the World Summit on Wednesday evening (March 10) at David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City.

While speaking on stage, Oprah encourage women to make their mark on the world.

“If we want to save the world, we’ve got to continue to rock the boat. To join forces, to scrap the rules. And then when the smoke clears and all the naysayers who said it couldn’t be done settle down, we need to reinvent the game,” Oprah said.

She continued, “I don’t need to any of you that the game was not built on an even playing field. We prove ourselves, again and again and again, and we maintain a healthy skepticism, but we refuse to become cynical.”

Oprah Winfrey Says Meghan Markle is 'Being Portrayed Unfairly'

Oprah Winfrey is sticking up for Meghan Markle.

After announcing that she and Prince Harry have teamed up for a mental health series coming to Apple TV+, the 65-year-old TV mogul appeared on CBS This Morning with pal Gayle King where they talked about how the 37-year-old duchess is being portrayed by the media.

“I think she’s being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart,” Oprah shared. “I think it’s very unfair.”

Gayle – who attended Meghan‘s baby shower back in February – added, “She’s very kind. She doesn’t seem to buy into [her bad press] though.”

It has been rumored that Meghan and sister-in-law Duchess Kate have been feuding, causing a rift between Prince Harry and Prince William.

“I think that’s remarkable that despite everything that’s going on she does not read anything,” Oprah added.

Prince Harry & Oprah Winfrey Team Up for Mental Health Series on Apple TV

Prince Harry is teaming up with Oprah Winfrey for a mental health series to launch on Apple TV+ in 2020.

“We are excited to announce that The Duke of Sussex and Oprah Winfrey are partners, co-creators and executive producers on their forthcoming mental health series launching on Apple in 2020. The pair have been developing the series for several months and are looking forward to sharing such an important project on this global platform,” the statement began. “The dynamic multi-part documentary series will focus on both mental illness and mental wellness, inspiring viewers to have an honest conversation about the challenges each of us faces, and how to equip ourselves with the tools to not simply survive, but to thrive.”

Prince Harry added in a statement, “I truly believe that good mental health – mental fitness – is the key to powerful leadership, productive communities and a purpose-driven self. It is a huge responsibility to get this right as we bring you the facts, the science and the awareness of a subject that is so relevant during these times. Our hope is that this series will be positive, enlightening and inclusive – sharing global stories of unparalleled human spirit fighting back from the darkest places, and the opportunity for us to understand ourselves and those around us better. I am incredibly proud to be working alongside Oprah on this vital series.”

After the news was announced, Oprah commented on the royal Instagram account, “Delighted to be partnering with you. Hope we shed a lot of Light. And change some lives!”
