During the interview with Robin Roberts, the 59-year-old media mogul talked about being convinced to join the project, explaining, “I said yes though because of the story.I though the opportunity to share this story with America.It is a great American story told through the eyes and soul, so beautifully, by Forrest Whitaker.”

Later, she added, “Not often do you see middle class African-American families with this kind of tenderness and connection, longevity.”

Though Oscar buzz is already underway, Oprah shares how insecure she was about taking the role, saying, “I was very nervous about acting because it”s like picking up an instrument and you haven”t played in fifteen years,” explaining how she then contacted an acting coach.Check out a video of her interview below.
