Nope! Oprah will not be running for president. Find out why she said she will not be running AND get into Vanity Fair’s photoshop fail involving Oprah’s hands and more.
Also, Tiffany Haddish just inked a first-look deal with HBO through her production company. Everything inside…
Oprah had the rumor mill in overdrive when she delivered her acceptance speech after being honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards earlier this month. It was all good. So good, folks were pondering if the businesswoman was considering a 2020 presidential run.
However, Lady O running for president is not happening in this lifetime. Her bestie Gayle King already told us she had no plans on running. Now, she’s addressing the rumors herself.
The media mogul graces the cover of InStyle magazine’s March 2018 issue, styling in a Gucci jacket with the word “LOVED” written across the back, where she explains exactly why she wouldn’t run to become the leader of the Free World.
“I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me,” she tells the magazine. “I don’t have the DNA for it.”
She’s not interested in a Twitter legacy either, unlike Trump.
“I try not to lean into the hysteria. I’ve heard a lot of Twitter chatter where people have said, ‘Where are you? You should be speaking up on these things!’ But it makes no sense to speak when you cannot be heard,” the star of A Wrinkle in Time tells the magazine. “One hundred and forty characters—that is not how you want to make your mark in the world.”
Now that she’s floating in her 60s, Lady O says she doesn’t take ish from anyone and could care less what a hater has to say.
“You take no s–t. None. Not a bit. In your 40s you want to say you take no shit, but you still do. In your 60s you take none,” she says. “There’s both a quickening and a calming—there’s a sense that you don’t have as much time on earth as you once did…People coming with anything less than what is the truth or authentic? Don’t even try.”

On another magazine…
Oprah and 11 other A-list celebrities grace Vanity Fair’s 2018 Hollywood issue, dubbed “The 2018 Vanity Fair Hollywood Portfolio: 12 Extraordinary Stars, One Momentous Year.”
The cover, shot by Annie Leibovitz, featured 12 of film and TV’s famed actors and celebrities, including YBF stars Zendaya and Michael B. Jordan. Vanity Fair said these celebrities took the “#MeToo movement in stride, offering strong women in leading roles, as well as strong men supporting them.”
However, Twitter is abuzz over some of the inside shots. Apparently, VF felt the need to give Oprah a third hand in one shot. HA!
Not only that, Twitter users also pointed out that it looks like VF gave Reese Witherspoon a third leg in the cover shot. Get a closer look below:
The ladies hopped on Twitter to joke about it:
I accept your 3d leg. As I know you accept my 3d hand
