Everyone’s fantasized about having Oprah as their BFFs. The constant inspiration. The sagely life advice. The presents!
Selma director Ava DuVernay is actually living that dream, since collaborating with the media mogul last year on the award-winning historical drama. The two friends are even teaming up again on another project, an adaptation of the novel Queen Sugar for Winfrey's OWN network.
ET caught up with DuVernay at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards on Tuesday, where she was honored with an award for her directing work and took some time to gush about her friendship with Winfrey.
"She's just become really a dear friend and confidante," the director said. "Just a source of beyond inspiration."
Though she and Winfrey are Twitter buddies, DuVernay spilled that the two also get together to share conversations deeper than 140 characters.
"She talks about all the things that she’s learned from talking to all of those thousands of people all these years you know?" she told ET. "And she’s able to distill that down, and share with friends like me. So I’m really, really fortunate."
