Oprah Winfrey Admits To Previously Battling Depression
By Isha Thorpe
August 14, 2017
The entrepreneur revealed that the difficulty of her movie Beloved, which is a film based on Toni Morrison’s Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, being beaten by Bride Of Chucky in the box office sent her into a very dark place. “I shall never forget Saturday morning, October 17,” said Oprah.
“I got a call from someone at the studio, and they said, ‘It’s over. You got beat by Chucky.’ And I said, ‘Who’s Chucky? What do you mean it’s over? It’s just Saturday morning!’ I knew nothing about box-office projections or weekend openings. It was ten o’clock in the morning, and I said to Art, 'I would like macaroni and cheese for breakfast.' And so began my long plunge into food and depression and suppressing all my feelings.”
this nearly destroyed oprah, your favorite movie isn't half as powerful
