Oprah Winfrey Hollywood Reporter
Oprah Winfrey is featured on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter and the media mogul talks about various topics including having no regrets over not having kids, advice for those following in her footsteps and managing wealth.

On not having kids: “Gayle [now a mother of two] was the kind of kid who, in seventh grade Home Ec class, was writing down her name and the names of her children. While she was having those kind of daydreams, I was having daydreams about how I could be Martin Luther King…If I had kids, my kids would hate me. They would have ended up on the equivalent of the Oprah show talking about me; because something [in my life] would have had to suffer and it would’ve probably been them.”

On what advice she has for new talk show hosts like Queen Latifah and Steve Harvey: She talked with Latifah for an hour about her new show and told her, “Don’t do it until you have 100 percent creative control to be yourself.”

She called up Steve after watching his show one day to tell him: “I saw you in a chocolate factory trying to do that routine that Lucy and Ethel did. That’s not you. Don’t let people talk you into what they think is you.”

On managing success and the wealth that can accompany it: “When you’re the most successful person in your family, in your neighborhood and in your town, everybody thinks you’re the First National Bank and you have to figure out for yourself where those boundaries are…I got to the point where nobody ever asked me for anything less than $5,000. I felt pressured for a long time to say yes, because I thought, ‘I can’t lie and say I don’t have it. My salary is printed in the paper,’ ” she laughs, looking back at all her charity: “I’ve bought more houses and cars than I can even tell you.”

In related news, she has just been nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award.
