Even pop culture icons have their moments! Oprah Winfrey is returning to the acting world in her lead role as Deborah Lacks in the upcoming movie based on a true story, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
“The word is scurred, s-c-u-double r- double r - e- d. I was a little scurred and the reason is, you know, most people get nervous or afraid when you're out of your comfort zone,” she told ET’s Jennifer Peros at Tuesday night’s premiere. “I really haven't acted a lot, I've been doing more of it lately, but it wasn't my calling, I did that other thing for more than 25 years so every time I'm on a set and you have something really serious to do for a long period of time, more than two minutes, I get nervous about it because it isn't what I do regularly.”
