Oprah Winfrey hints at making her return to acting

Oprah Winfrey has dropped a hint she’s planning to return to acting. The TV titan has performed in a number of movies while also juggling her career as a talk show host, notably winning a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her performance in 1985 drama “The Color Purple” and starring in films such as “The Butler” and “Selma” with her last major acting role coming four years ago in Ava DuVernay’s 2018 offering “A Wrinkle in Time”.

Now Winfrey has appeared in Variety’s The Power of Women Issue alongside moviemaker DuVernay and suggested a big screen return is on the cards.

Winfrey didn’t give any more details but the exchange suggested another project with DuVernay is on the cards after they previously worked together on “A Wrinkle in Time”, “Selma” as well as “Queen Sugar” for Winfrey’s OWN TV network and the 2019 TV series “When They See Us”, which was helmed by Winfrey as an executive producer.

During the interview DuVernay appeared to push her friend in the direction of another acting role, telling her: “I hope that she acts more. She is, I think, the finest actress of her category.
