Oprah Covers the March Issue of InStyle Magazine

Oprah covers the March 2018 issue of InStyle Magazine photographed by Phil Poynter and styled by Karla Welch.

 

On what makes her angry right now: “What makes me angriest is the lack of discernment. Maya [Angelou] used to say to me, ‘When people show you who they are, believe them the first time. Babe, your problem is you have to be shown 29 times.’ So, I see a lot of people who have to be shown 29 times, who have a lack of discernment for things that appear to be obvious. Character is very much a defining matter in everything that you do. To be able to say because you behaved a certain way doesn’t [reflect] who you really are, that’s just wrong.”

On people saying “Oprah 2020”: “I actually saw a mug the other day … I thought it was a cute mug. All you need is a mug and some campaign literature and a T-shirt. 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. I don’t have the DNA for it.”

On life in your 60s: “You take no shit. 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. 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. For me, there’s also a sense of calming about that.”
